I haven’t been keeping quite such a close track – I think I started 13 years ago, back in 1994 (a Yellow course at Archerfield was my first competitive race) and I’ve raced on around 240 areas altogether, based on the maps I’ve got sitting around in my binders. That’s on average 18 areas per year. So it’ll be 2049 before I pass this total. I’ll be happy if I’m able to run at all then, aged 69!
I ran in 48 races last year though, and I’m planning to be similarly ambitious this year, so maybe it won’t be that long.
