Report from Mark Hall
A trip over to south Yorkshire. I won this event back in 2003 ( Has it really been so long ago!) this is the first time I have returned and although the last half of the event has changed the first 5k is still a constant climb with some very steep sections. After 5 and a half Kms there is a steep descent on to the trans Penine trail (off road) which is 3 kms of flat trail before the final 400 metres of incline. I was 1st vet overall. The 10k incorporated the South Yorks 10k championship as a result attracted a good local field. If any OAC runners fancy a trip over the ‘border’ this is a well organised. reasonably priced event but don’t expect a PB!
Winner: D Hinchcliffe, Penistone FR. 34.31
