The inaugural Gransnet Social distancing sports day was held yesterday.
There were 6 competitors across the range of events. Elegran, Katek, Marelli, Cascats, Ina and Jane10.
Elizabeth1 and Oldgoat had a note to get them off games.
Solo three legged race was won by a short margin by Jane10 but she was disqualified for using a tricycle.
Egg and Spoon Race
This race ran out of time due to all competitors discussing better uses for eggs leading to a heated argument on the best way to scramble them.
This followed the traditional form of each competitor donning a range of items before crawling under a net, climbing a wall and running through a water trough. In the first section where each competitor had to find and put on their own glasses, teeth and hearing aids, Katek was at an initial advantage as she doesn’t have glasses however, she was unable to see over the wall and she was two inches shorter than the water in the trough, so came in a rather soggy third place behind Jane10 and Cascats.
The Three yard dash
This was won by Ina in a personal best time for this race.
The 6 inch hurdles race was cancelled as the course marshals deemed it too dangerous to proceed.
However, the 3 inch hurdles race was won by a short head- Marelli’s as she tripped over the last hurdle and passed the tape head first.
The 800 metres
No result as yet for this race as it is still in progress. As night fell Elegran was in the lead but with Katek and Cascats in hot, well hottish, pursuit. It is hoped that they reach the finishing post by this afternoon
