Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath’ring winter fools

This is a festive challenge open to invited clubs and as such not an “official” event. It’s a challenge to do with friends and clubmates and is not registered as a race. Therefore if you’re fool enough to take part be aware that no one will gather you in either during or afterwards!
