Walking the route

Never take under kids on a 10k walk without snacks!

Today I decided it was a ‘good idea’ to take the whole family out to walk the Hopton 10k route.

It turns out the 10k undulating route feels a lot longer when you’re listening to kids complaining about being tired and carrying a toddler for 60% of the time.

However, we made it, and we picked several key areas to place marshals and signage. There are a few places where the direction isn’t 100% clear, and a few places where a marshall would be useful to keep things working smoothly.

The 300 metres or so which goes through the golf course are particularly fun. A massive thank you goes out to Dewsbury Golf Course for supporting us, and not opposing our race. It should be a nice break for the golfers whilst we pass through; do watch out for low-flying balls though! :-)
