Report from Ian B
I did the canal canter 10k from Kirkstall along the canal in to leeds city centre and back again on Saturday 8 July. I finished 6th in 46:34 and first V45 but then again there were only 29 runners! Runner numbers are limited due to the nature of the towpath, its obviously a pretty flat run the only negative being the amount of people to dodge and the narrow/low bridges to pass under that slowed you down. The race was won by Peter Hopson from Saltaire in 34:52.
Very friendly event with a bottle of beer and bar of chocolate at the end and a barbecue, the big plus being a 9:30am Saturday start meaning you still have the rest of the day/weekend. There is also a 5k/half marathon/full marathon and ultra marathon run at the same time with various loops run between Saltaire – leeds.
