Thorpeness hugWe arrived at Thorpeness today for the 30th Heritage Coast run just in time to see the backs of the last departing group but didn't have to wait long for theThorpeness knowing look first six mile runners to arrive back.  A first timer told us he hadn't realised how much harder it was running on the sandy soil rather than tarmac and this year the flooding meant climbing up banks to skirt impromptu lakes.  Congrats to the Saxmundham Rotary club for keeping at an event that has such an inclusive meld of walkers, fun and club runners ... though we'd like to see it in the sun one day:)
