Report from Nicola Swann:
Last Sunday I did Wetherby 10k for the first time. I had heard mixed things about it. Some people love the route others were not so sure about it. At the end of the Summer holidays I wasn’t quite sure how it would go.
However, I did actually really enjoy it. I enjoyed it as a road race that wasn’t really on roads. Most of it is on footpaths but tarmac paths and although it is undulating at points it certainly isn’t hilly! It remained dry and it wasn’t too hot and overall it was a successful afternoon. The mug and the teabags were a winner at the end. Not sure about the random facecloth!
