Canals, Cake, Chocolate and Cerveza – Jane Lawson

Februay 29th – a bonus day that you only get every 4 years and despite having a heavy cold what better way to spend it than with a run ( or 2) in Yorkshire.

After a gentle and wet Bowling Park parkrun I headed over to Saltaire for the “Sir Titus Trot” organised by the Its Grim up North crowd.

The race started at 12 and by this time the sun had come out. The 10K was an out and back along the canal from Saltaire to just past the 5 locks at Bingley. The going along the tow path was surprisingly firm – but there were lots of puddles to splash through.

This was my second GRIM run. They mainly organise trail races , usually with the choice of several distances from 5K to Ultra with all abilities joining in. Low key and friendly there is always cake, chocolate and a bottle of beer to refuel with at the end.
