Longstone Run

6th August 2008

West Wight Road Runners club run this Wednesday saw some eventful running! Setting off from the Sun Inn, Hulverstone, at 7:15pm and unlucky number of 13 set headed out on a 5mile-ish route which took us along Brook beach and involved some sharp eyes to find the path back. Only 11 returned!! .................

The unsuspecting, fairly new, two members, had managed to miss the turning off of Brook beach, an instead ran into Brighstone, up through Mottistone, past the Long Stone, through Brook house and back via the road, arriving at the pub after two search parties had been sent out and approximately fifteen minuets after the rest of the group had noticed them missing! Its estimated that the pair completed an additional 2 or 3 miles on their detour, a route we may even be considering in the future! For next weeks run (Yarmouth view point) we will be issuing guide runners to those who got lost, preferably with leashes!!
