In short: Oh, you mean flat for Yorkshire!!! In full: I had been told somewhere that this was a flat 10 and was a little shocked at the hillyness. Still once i go over the shock i loved every sun drenched minute of it. Well run all round even if there was a massive queue for the gents.
Can't wait for next year. Date of review: July 17, 2008
In short: Warm sunshine, nice views, "fun" hills In full: Abbey Runners should be very proud of themselves for this excellent event. Nice to see what appears to be a relatively rare summer 10 mile race.
Favourite moment was seeing the face fall on the chap next standing next to me at the start when his friend corrected him "no 10 miles, not 10K" Ha ha! A close second was the rather sorry sounding starting horn.
Maybe moving back home South soon, but will definately be travelling back next year for this magnificent event. Date of review: July 15, 2008
In short: Hills and loops but fun In full: Thought I knew the area, but you run around in some many little loops that I got seriously disorientated between 5 and 9 miles. Lovely race though, great scenary even if the hills were a little more taxing than I'd have liked. Date of review: July 13, 2008
In short: excellent race, lovely route, warm sunshine... one minor niggle - with spillage from plastic cups I struggled to get enough water on board for the warm conditions Date of review: July 13, 2008
In short: Hard but worth it. In full: I had only done the Otley 10mi before and thought it couldn't possibly be any harder. I was wrong. So very wrong. There were more ups than downs and the ups went on for ever and ever and ever and ever etc. Faultless organisation and marshalling. The goodie bags contained a mug and some samples. Much more welcomed than the usual cotton t-shirt. Would do again....If I wasn't such a wimp. Date of review: July 13, 2008
