As the saying goes, all the world is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer…and it is particularly appropriate that this saying be attributed to a Welshman because only the Welsh could come up with an event like this.
First of all ‘The then Landlord, Gordon Green overheard two men discussing the relative merits of men and horses’….why??? Why would you want to compare and horses? Horses…four legs, hairy, bigger, stronger, faster. Men…two legs, less hairy, smarter. End of story! Just as well it wasn’t the merits of men and snails or this would have been a shit-boring race!:-)
Then there is the idea of running 22 miles…racing against horses. Hmmm let me get this straight, I can run or I can ride a horse…let me thi…horse!
And check out the other events on offer…it just gets worse. Riding a mountain bike along the bottom of a 6ft deep peat bog wearing a mask and snorkel…for f*&k-sake!
The only redeeming thing for me about this is that I have a good friend running in the horse marathon thing…so obviously it is them thou art a little queer. Phew! 🙂
