Andy Humphries reports:

Nine of us from CRC braved the elements and gathered on Weston beach for the Two Bays Tough Ten. We were not keen at the outset and came up with all manor of excuses to start off slow. It was breezy but not nearly as bad a day as Saturday had been.

Anyway, the first mile is on the beach at Weston and then past the Marina, up a few steps and then onto the road towards Sand Bay. At that point it’s back onto the beach. Then a very muddy bit, then a hilly bit, then a muddy bit, then a road and then at seven miles a gert big hill. The hill started off on road merging onto a mud track that seemed never to stop going up. Once at eight miles it was flat then down hill and very muddy with a few rocks and tree stumps thrown for good measure. The final mile took us across the marina where, rather handily, the tide was washing over the path to wash our dirty trainers.

I think we all found the course tough in parts, very interesting and well organised. The marshals were great and we got a cheer from them when they could see that we were CRC as we came towards them in our new attire. An enjoyable outing was had by all!
