Sunday 10th July: Kilburn Feast 7m road race

Report from Mark Hall:

I did this event in 2012, running a minute slower than today! The race is run on a very hilly circuit and the unusual distance means there is no pressure to run a time. In a lot of events this year I have either been chasing times or running championship races, which means races are not always enjoyable. I entered the Kilburn event treating it as a ‘fun’ race, I did not prepare at all for it and despite this I had one of my best performances of the year, probably the only time in 2016 I have raced on top form.

Winner, Tristan Leroid, New Marske, 39.47. I finished 4th in the race in 41.54 and 1st V55

    Good result again Mark. When the pressure is off you can often run better and enjoy the outing. I don’t enjoy many but I always enjoy the ‘having done them’ which lasts much longer!

    I agree with Howard about your running being a good result , to finish 4th in 41.54 in a 7 miles hilly race , it is indeed a great result , and in the last mile you passed as well the several time winner of Kilburn 7m Gary D. not bad at all for racing with no pressure . Well done to Mark Hall.
