Kevin and Jim’s Run
2nd May Report by John Gill
We met in Applegarth Car park Northallerton at 6.30 for a prompt 7.00
getaway but disaster struck, the fair had arrived in town overnight and
block our exit route from the carpark. Kevin had to alter all the pace
notes by hand before we could set off. To complicate matters there were
a few observation questions on the route with prizes at the end.
had a very enjoyable run to the west of Northallerton ending up at the
Buck Inn Thornton Watlass. Jim and Kevin were out and about taking
photographs at various vantage points. Angela and I were last to leave
and were some way behind, we followed the new directions but went
straight on at I think the third roundabout and got stuck in the middle
of the Fair!!
A little later on we came across a worried looking Kevin, he said “you
were last to set off and only three cars have passed me where are they
all?” Happy to report that in the end everyone made it to the book
although at one point one of our members was coming in the wrong
direction towards me.
We had a good meal at the Buck and Kevin gave out the prizes, I cannot
remember who won though, let me know if you want your name up in
We held a raffle and the Buck donated £3 from the cost of each meal we
raised a very healthy £83 for our chosen Charity of the year.
