All downhill? Tell another one.
RUN AND WALK
The trail starts off level but not for long
Tender Vittles pushes 2-year old Violetta up the steep rough-concrete-surfaced slope
How did they get the truck up this slope to deliver the concrete?

Another photo opportunity on the hilltop
We head on down - but lose the trail on the way
We spot two crickets mating. Never seen this before. The female is the larger of the two.
Yes, yes, yes!
They are in no hurry and not bothered by our presence
We head down to the road and meet up with the walkers

Family snap: Violetta, Krazie Puppy, Tender Vittles and Sebastian
Five-year old Sebastian had joined the runners at the road for the last half but had difficulty in the long grass
Beer Stop - with beer previously hidden in the bushes by the hare
Someone had blasted the road sign with buckshot.
There were used shotgun cartridges littering the whole area - which is obviously popular with hunters.
We finally spot one of the hare's rust-coloured flour trail markers in the grass
Back down the steep hill to the start
Leanover not quite ready to join the circle
The hare's down-down - accompanied by his special song

Suddenly a stick insect appears

Then shortly afterwards a smaller green one appeared on the ground. Another first for us.
Down, down, down
TV's bitch, bitch, bitch routine for FC complaining about the trail on trail
Clitoria asks - what's happening next week? Marathon 10k or 5k?
Rim Job finishes up his drink after the circle. What? a coke?
