By John Grimshaw

This was the last in a series of 5 races held over the year, I have managed to run 4 of them. You can purchase a ‘season ticket’ giving you access to all races at a cheaper price, the five races are:
Lincoln, Hull (missed), Burnley, Leeds and York.
Next year they are adding a further race in Nottingham.

Each race has been enjoyable, even Leeds where I was injured during the race, mainly flat courses with the exception of Burnley that had one significant incline in the middle, I also think the courses were well marshalled again with the exception of Leeds, plenty of water and lots of support throughout the race from spectators… The only main downsides were a number of the general public wishing to cross the course with no regard for their or runners safety and three of the four races I did were significantly delayed starts due to traffic on the course.

Apart from these relatively minor issues I can highly recommend the series if you want to get out and about outside of our region.

York 10k is renowned for being the most picturesque course and it does not disappoint! Starting and finishing at the York horse race course it takes in all the sights you would expect weaving through the streets on closed roads or roads with coned traffic barriers. There are a couple of slight inclines but nothing too hard running through the gates of the city wall and past the cathedral which is about half way, then a loop past the castle before returning to the York horse race course via the river paths.

The day was cool to start with but warmed up quickly just before the race making the choice of race gear difficult!

Runners and marshals were all very friendly and some good banter before the race helped with the 13 minute delay, this normally would not have been a problem except, due to a friends wedding in the afternoon we had a tight schedule to make the train home! A 48 minute window meant the 13 min delay was significant but encouraged a fast time… Well best I could do returning from injury!

It was also my first outing of my new Garmin forerunner which I have eventually purchased. Starting at a steady pace to ease my legs into the race we were quickly running the streets of York, water was found at 3 and 7 Km which due to the heat was a welcome relief.

Finishing in a respectable 47:43 but more importantly I had made it round without any pain in my left calf, however I still had 1.5 miles to get to the train station and only 30mins to get there so despite finishing on empty, after collecting my goodie bag, I had to jog to the train station! Alls well though as I made it with 10mins to spare.
