Dovedale Dash
Sunday 4th November 2007
Alex Downie

The Dovedale Dash, 4.11.07, approx 4.75m.
I’ve described this course in such gruesome detail in the past that to do so again would amount to tedious self-plagiarism. Suffice to say that this is a great, classic cross-country course which puts a manic grin on your face the whole way round, except possibly when you fall over....This year, after a spell of dryish weather, the course was probably the “easiest” we’ve run it. There is the added benefit of the weekend away in Derbyshire, and this year Ian had booked us into the Youth Hostel in the famous plague village of Eyam – apparently the only one available to us...draw your own conclusions...Actually, the accommodation and food were excellent, and the village redolent with history.
Well, we duly stumbled down the rough track [torches necessary] to the pub on the Saturday evening before the race. It was packed, but C+C en masse are a force to be reckoned with. We sent in the shock troops [mainly mike s, fiona and mary j ], the locals went scurrying, and soon the bar was ours. Not that I wish to portray C+C on tour as a boatload of blagging boozy boorish boors – nothing could be further from the truth.
