Lap of most of the course to warm up. Almost misjudged it, only just back before scheduled start time!

Chacefield Wood 6km trail race, 12th place.
Didn’t even know this bit of wood existed but this (new) race was great.
Nice varied woodland (would make a decent Wed eve area), and a race of just under 100 people which had the works - inflatable start/finish arch, registration/kit tent, coffee and cake van, commentary, medal and drink and snack at the finish. Plus the hottest UK April day since 1949 or something!
Two laps, longish off track twisty turny rooty section with a couple of ditches to jump plus a drag back gradually uphill on good paths. Couple of flatter bits of track linking them at either end of the wood. Hot pace off the start so backed off a little. After that, perhaps unsurprisingly, I got a few places on the off trail section and lost a couple on the uphill bit...
