PB’s for Lee Varley and Kirsty Laing. Jimmy ran his 1st race after damaging his toe and ran his 2nd fastest 10k of all time, should have tried harder and gone sub 35 though 🙂
Simon ran his fastest 10k since 2017 winning his age group and ranking him 3rd in the UK for 2020 so far. Martin Wilkinson ran his best 10k since 2017 and Martin James was pleased with his time to set a bench mark for 2020.

Now I just need a beard, a VW van and a craft ale collection and I’m ready for utmb champs!”

Not our finest runs, Kev struggled with injury and had to back off on the nice down hill bits which is the last thing you want when the last 2 miles are down hill. Martin did not want to race due to the most severe man flu, but unable to face wasting a race entry fee decided to have a go.
2 hours drive over the Snake Pass to somewhere near Wales (we almost ended up in Wales on the way home). It was cold, foggy, dry, no ice on the roads, no wind – good conditions really. Lots of queuing for toilets and bag drop. Not much time to warm up but that what the first mile is for.
