Fourteen Members of Notfast Running Club took part in the Rauceby Ripper 8.5 mile trail race.  Organised by Sleaford Town Runners, and starting from South Rauceby in  Lincolnshire  “The Ripper” offers what has been described as “Picturesque scenery with great views”. Now what was also on offer this year was  frozen ground with a covering of snow, and also bright sun and  bitterly cold conditions.
The event was largely run on private ground, and a bouquet of  flowers was offered to the Lady of the Manor as a token of thanks for allowing a hundred or so runners to run amok on the Estate Land
Those Notfasts that reported in, all enjoyed the race…oddly only one mentioned the goody Bag that contained ..chocolates, a key ring, a little gold shoe memento,…and wait for it ..a bag of crisps…crisps !!…Runners Nirvana.
