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
