JOG at Ash Priors Common
Surprisingly challenging area
We had a fine spring day to enjoy a relatively new area which offers a nice contrast to our other JOG venues. It's strangely reminiscent of the New Forest, the terrain is relatively flat with a patchwork of woodland and large clearings, bisected by minor roads and streams.
The Fox course was the Badger course without the paths marked on the map! Funny to think how bewildered the runners on the Fox course must have looked compared to those on the Badger, who knew exactly which paths to choose. As opposed to running round in circles, staggering through brambles and into streams...
Thanks to planner Mark Maynard for planning and providing us with the perfect warm-up for the following days' inter-club event in Dorset.
Keep fit in between Saturday JOGs with our fitness sessions at Club Night at the COACH centre, Taunton. All members and JOG goers are welcome.
JOG, Crowcombe Heathfield
Although muddy in places, this Saturday's venue has a wealth of of line features like earth banks, streams and ditches, which make the Squirrel and Badger courses in particular more interesting.
