Furnace Inn Race 26/12/2017

Boxing day 2017 saw the return of the Furnace Inn Race.

This is an annual race organised by Shelton Striders with the proceeds going to charity. For SRC this proves to be a popular fun race, especially after pigging out all day the day before, and ideal so you can have a sneaky pint afterwards. Fancy dress is not compulsory but some do participate 🙂

The route this year was a little different due to the flood defence work going on near the pub. It started with an extra sneaky climb from the pub before running through the mud of Darley Park and then around the standard course and eventually back down the route you started from. I clocked at 3.31 miles rather than the usual 2.75 miles course.
