On 19/20 November 2005 we manned High Beech Village Hall, a tea-tent, a starting point and eight checkpoints so that 200 or so people could run through Epping Forest in the middle of the night. This is the annual Rodings Rally, arranged and run by members of the Epping Forest Outdoor Group. The fact that we do it every year, and people participate in it every year, means that it must be enjoyable. Doesn't it? For one EFOG member, this was the first experience - having only been coerced into the Group at the Epping Forest Festival in September - see here!
