A Cake Run Not A Cake-Walk
Six intrepid Chelford Runaways took to the hills for the first time in typical SW Peak weather of low mist, light drizzle and seeping cold.
Cheered up by a view of the excellent Peak View Tea Rooms that was to be the end point, they bounced off up the hill in search of Cheshire's highest hill, Shining Tor. Accompanied by a couple of curlews and the occasional disbelieving hiker, the ladies made a good fist of getting to the trig point and enjoyed standing with one foot in Cheshire and one in Derbyshire.
They were looking quite pleased with themselves until they found out they had to drop down into Thursbitch and back up to gain the reward of a nice cake.
However, things perked up and with only a 50 metre drop to the Peak View Tea Rooms, the pace picked up, as no doubt, the scent of cake drifted up the hill.
Well done, to all, you've come a long way from jogging around the estate.
If you fancy a sociable run in the Chelford / Lower WIthington / Nether Alderley /Warford area, you are very welcome to come out with the Runaways. We start from Chelford Activity Park every Saturday at 9.30 am.
