Wednesday 21st May – Askern 10k

Tom Potter reports:

I decided to have a crack at achieving a new 10k PB, after recently smashing my 5k, 10mile, half marathon and marathon PB’s. All within the last seven weeks.

Having raced the Askern 10mile several times over the past few years I knew this course would most likely be undulating and not entirely ‘pancake’ flat. I was still confident of breaking my previous best time of 19:04 (set in 2012) due to my apparent good form.

The race winner in 32:24, was Gareth Rowe (Clowne Road Runners) & the first female finisher, 29th overall, was Jenny Latham of my second claim club Wakefield Harriers with a time of 36:55.

Delighted to report I achieved my PB and finished in 50th position with a time of 38:22.

Full results.

  2. I ran the Askern 10 miles few times years back and for some reason I found this course difficult to achieve any great results .Congratulation to Tom P. for the good performance in such a place and 38:22 is a good result .
