I usually destress by going for a run. I also enjoy a Pint or several. Those wonderful people at Axe Valley Runners used to put on the ideal event, the " Midsummer Dream ( in search of the uncarved block ) "
The run evolved over the years but always started outside the Hook and Parrot.
14 or 16 miles of gloriously scenic cross country running, six pubs en route with a Pint quaffed in each.
Halfway point was at a Village Hall where a full Cream Tea was laid on.
It was a circular route so you could choose which direction to run, the last ( or first ) Pub held a music / beer festival over the same weekend, many never made it further.
Only an hour or so until Beer O'clock, today I'll raise a toast to the folk at Axe Vally runners.
