Sunday 17th June – Pudsey 10k

Report from Howard This race is a very undulating multi terrain race and last year the weather was blistering. Today the forecast was for 14 degrees which is much more conducive to faster running. Just before the start the sun came out and it was pretty hot. I had opted for the black vest and regretted not having the white one. My race reports have been fewer because I have been concentrating on duathlon and triathlon qualifying races for World…

Sunday 17th June – Pontefract 10k

Report from Phil R It’s 20 years since I ran in the 10k organised by Pontefract Hospital’s League of Friends; on Sunday there was a new Pontefract 10k promoted by the Prince of Wales’ Trust. The route was out-and-back along closed roads just south of the racecourse. Good points – plenty of parking space close to the start and finish, aerobics session immediately before starting (see drone video on pontefract10k facebook page), well-marshalled course, chip timing; not so good –…
