We would like to say huge congratulations to everyone that took part in the inaugural Yule Log Run and Elf Dash.
There were a good number of runners, fortunately the rain stopped and the wind calmed as they set off and luckily it didn’t start again till after the finish, making for great running conditions.
Everyone finished with their Santa and Elf costumes in one piece, with huge smiles and lots of thumbs up telling us they had enjoyed their run.
The ethos at Triyourtri is ‘take part, have a go, and finish with a smile’ which was certainly fulfilled.
There were awards for first place, children and best costume, thank you everyone for making the day much more colourful (The conservatory of the cafe looked like santas workshop).
The category winners are: –

First Adult Male – Steve Cronshaw (In a Green, Red and White dress suit emblazoned with Santas)
First Adult Female – Anastasija Turner
First Junior – Lucy Farrar
Second Junior – Emma Farrar
Best Adult Fancy Dress – Joan Blanch Nicholson (In her full Santa costume)
Best Junior Fancy Dress – Guy Taylor (In his stripey Elf suit Matching with mum)
