It was almost all younger people in the race. So if there had been tracking by age group, I would have done pretty well. Because my age group was not well represented.
But there were no complicated set of awards. It was just a well run race, with an awful lot of puddles to jump.
It was called "for the rare" because the charitable cause was cancer in young adults, which is fairly rare as cancer goes.
How rare? I'm not sure. I can't quite find a comparison of cancer risks across one's lifetime. It varies quite a bit by type of cancer, of course. Furthermore, some forms are curable nowadays.
Rhyme of the day:
Jumping puddles as you run
Adds a bit of wet-shoe fun.
