Sunday 13th August – Askern 10 miles

Report from Mark: This was another event that was popular with OAC runners many years ago, sure Ian Fisher won it on many occasions . The race this year was won in a very quick time by Iratz Arrospede, City Sheffield, 51.59. Weather conditions were good.  I really struggled again but managed to beat the hour and finish, an improvement on my last outing! This is not a PB circuit, probably best described as very undulating. The race is very well organised, prizes down to 15th( men and women) and cheap to enter. No other OAC runners

  1. Yes also the Askern 10 miles used to be very popular with the Otley AC. members and the powerful Ian F. won several times the race , even myself went a few times and it is peculiar why our club has lost interest in this race . I remember that the course is not flat at all , that makes your 59.45 a fantastic time to achieve , I wish I could struggle a bit like you do . Well done to Mark H.
