The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
James Jenkin: December 2015
Tattenhall Runners complete their annual racing calendar with their festive fancy dress race today, Sunday 20 December, at 10.30am!
This year's theme is 'Nursery Rhymes' and it can be expected that those running will enter into the spirit and create a memorable spectacle!
Uniquely, the race is a handicap with an arcane and utterly opaque formula designed to give the slower runners a chance. Such is the keenness to win this race that runners have been deliberately running slowly for months to achieve a better handicap. Unfortunately, since no-one but the organiser understands the system, this is seldom successful!
The race starts at the Recreation Centre at 10:30 am, heads up Burwardsley Road, along Dark Lane and back via Bolesworth Road through the village returning to the Recreation Centre. 2014's theme was 'The Circus' captured above for the record. What turns up this year, well, we'll just have to wait and see.
So, if you're around on the this morning, pop out and cheer the madness through the village that is the 'Crazy Christmas Canter'!
