I’ve never been in it before, and certainly don’t intend to race. But it’s such a village event, and when I was on the Jock route a few years ago, it was so handy having the markers that race organizers attached to logs and things in the Richmond Fen, which can be a maze of trees and water trails.
Apparently the whole event was the brainchild of a Richmond man who is now in his 80s. I’m looking forward to meeting him.
Majickcanoe has great write-up of the Jock, and the critters that call it home.
