Beneath the normally thick crown of foliage Fangorn seemed a bit lighter and brighter today, the trees had stretched their limbs upward letting a bit more light in, and with the promise of no axes and a bunch of cute animals running around the trees were in top spirits. One could even hear happy creaking and groaning at the thought of their very own race happening, it had been a long time indeed since squirrels and other animals had run through their racing course.
Several older trees had lifted their large gnarled roots to make seats for those that wanted to sit (even promising Treebeard they'd not swallow up anyone in their roots)
There were many great rows of crates, each row a different size, and flagged with different colours, with the names of the kingdom over them. There was quite a ruckus in a few of them as some of the animals knew it was time to race and they were quite excited, others were lazy lumps and fast asleep. All of the crates held animals that any person might use to race for that particular kingdom should they not have their own.
