LAVANT Midsummer 5 Mile June 18th.

Location, just north of  Chichester, start and finish  Lavant Village Green, run out along undulating country lanes , then onto the Goodwood motor race circuit, which with the absence of machine drone is a very quiet pleasant environment to run in. The circuit seemed to go on for ever before you leave it  for the final mile and half back to the village.

In a  previous year we had 4 Vegan Runners at this one but just myself again on this occasion.  Chichester AC  provide a post race BBQ and on the Race application form the Vegan option is provided to ring. So with a massive queue for the carnivore option (beware they are everywhere) brilliant that for the Vegan burgers I was directed to the indoor counter and served straight away.

The run itself was held on a hot evening, my PB as a Vet 50 for the course is 31min 41secs but after long stint of chest infection and other problems was not expecting to attack that time. In fact found it a real struggle to get round in the modest time of 34mins 33secs. 69th/347 runners.
