The run they couldn't short-cut; yeah, right!
The short run meanwhile gamely stuck to it, despite having only got 50% of the hare's pre-run instructions, and thus spending 15 minutes at the final 360 in a vain search for squares instead of just following the shreddy they had already found, home. Later arrivals at the check included Toa Ngoc, recently returned from foreign climes, who suffered a fainting fit and had to be coaxed back into activity by the threat from her mum of being left up at the top of the hill.
The stats department advises a hefty 8.7k for the long run including all the F's and the single X, although that wasn't enough for Stick Insect who managed to rack up 9.1k. But the total ascent was barely 200 meters and the highest point only 92m. The short run was also a little on the long side at 4.3k with a total ascent of about 110m and the same top spot as the long run.
