Report from Sara Elliott:
Having done a few muddy trail races recently, I thought it was time to get back to my beloved Tarmac and give Eccup 10 a go.
Conditions were great, not too warm and not too cold (I’d been dreading a repeat of Leeds half heat!!). Had a chat with Robin, Andy B and Rob before we set off.
I’d been expecting horrendous hills but it wasn’t too bad at all, a few long drags rather than steep ascents, and after last week’s BMW and the recent Pudsey 10k, it felt more than ok. The last uphill mile was pretty cruel (though I had lots of people say how brutal the Otley 10 is!!) but I finished in 1:17:52.
