In short: Let's discuss the word 'flat'. My watch estimates 106m ascent/descent In full: Compared to Bristol 1/2 at 130m and Bath 1/2 at 185m, pro rata, the Pewsey 10k is quite hilly. I guess this is relative to experience and as I ran faster yesterday than I have ever run, either I'm getting better or the downhills make up for the uphills.
Still, a really nice course and atmosphere...looking forward to next year Date of review: April 10, 2006
In short: Another minute off PB on a fast course In full: Let me say this course isn't 'pancake' flat. There are around 3 shortish rises that require you to dig in a little to make sure the pace doesn't drop off. But we're really only talking molehills. It is however a fast course with very clear and accurate KM markings and a drinks station just before 5K. Get there early and you get to park close to start and finish. Well worth the hour's trip from Bristol. The missus managed a new PB as well. It's a fast field so you get dragged along. Very impressed. Date of review: April 10, 2006
