White Horse Relay
If you had pitched this idea to me a year ago, I would have laughed heartily in your face.
You want me to run for ap- proximately 70 miles and have me pay £70 for the pleasure? Yeeeeeeah… I’m not much of a running enthusiast. If any- thing I’m more a fan of the sitting and the lying down.
Though nowadays, what with Jamie having his way with our diets and everyone looking to stay fit and healthy by taking up more exercise, this does actually look quite tempting. Plus it’d be nice to actually exercise in the real outdoors instead of in front of the Wii.
Basically you and your team of seven to ten runners will relay through the Wiltshire countryside, making your way around all eight of the White Horses and all profits go towards Carers Support West Wilts. So, as well as keep- ing fit and engaging in some friendly competition, you get to have a warm fuzzy feel- ing in your tummy because you’ve helped out a good cause too.
The teams are limited to 20 in total, and at the time of writ- ing there are seven spaces
left for any groups of relay enthusiasts who are looking for a different way to see the Wiltshire countryside.
There are a variety of dis- tances and terrain that take you through beautiful scenic routes. Guarantees of the girl from Devizes (who won lots of prizes for her assets of two different sizes) being one of the runners can’t be made, unfortunately. And for your own unofficial rules, you can keep a mental tally of the number of times you hear someone with a thick West Country accent exclaim, “Bloody big ‘orse, innet!”
