Sunday 11th September – Spen Greenway 10k

Report from Tom Pomfrett:

After spending Saturday moping about with a cold annoying Kirsty, Steve Robinson convinced me to stop being lazy and join him for a nice flat 10K organised by Spenborough AC. The race is an out and back following a Sustrans cycle path along a disused railway. There’s a slight uphill for the first 5k which means you get the benefit of a gentle down on the way back to the finish.

I’ve not run an official 10K since 2011 so I wasn’t sure how I’d get on but I was hoping for a PB and it looked like a good course to try it. Steve and I lined up near the front of the small group of starters and headed off dodging the odd cyclist and dog on the way.

Everything went pretty smoothly on the run although I suffered a bit in the heat and there’s a nice red circle on my white Otley vest where my nipple used to be (note to self, remember plasters next time). Steve also found the going warm and finished not far behind be.

  1. Congratulations to Tom P. for his PB in this 10k in 39.29 a good result that gave Tom the 8th place , the start of the race was in the same S. Mary track of the Spen 20 and also it was the venue of W. Yorks.cross country years back. Also Steve R. ran strongly in 42.46 . Well done to both of you .
