DRC Treasure Hunt

08/04/2014

Tuesday evening training took on a fun aspect in the form of a Treasure Hunt and was designed for groups of runners to test their local knowledge as well as their fitness...

5 teams of four or five runners set off at minute intervals to answer clues that could only be determined by finding prices in the windows of selected local businesses. One clue involved runners collecting various tokens and several teams negotiating the maze in the Dock Park to collect one item caused great hilarity to children and their parents. To add an extra degree of difficulty each team had to add these prices together and subtract them from £50 and work out precisely how much change would remain and in doing so proved how complex it is to do calculations whilst running at the same time.

The winning team of Alison Groat, Rab Wilson, Kevin McQueen and Mark Johnston were presented with easter eggs for their ability to multi task on the run and thanks were given to organisers Peter Clingan and Roz Campbell for their hard work in creating such an enjoyable event. Best wishes were given to Alison, Adam Dickie, Kevin Conchar, Helen Pedley, Nicola Allan and all other local runners who are all taking part in the London marathon this Sunday.
