might give this a try as it starts on my doorstep. It'll be my first 10 miler. Any one got a route map so I can practice!?

it starts in a car park just before the pier goes up to the windmill and back

I think this was the first 10 miler I did a few years back. TBH I`d say it`s an ideal debut; obvious halfway point so just go steady until then. It might be windy but plenty to look at so shouldn`t be too painful. The car park start is a bit of a pain though and I nearly missed the `gun` as the HQ is a fair old way from the start.

I`m in. Entered last night. I`ll see what the weather is like and might even try a PB attempt!

Wow! Great weather eh?! Loved that and , despite the wind blowing all the way back, got a big PB!

Similar here.  Went off a bit fast and that and the headwind on the way back made it hard work but PB'd all the same. 

I think I misjudged a bit of the course though - there was one long bend on the front and most people stuck to the outside with a few taking the inside line but I suspect they were right as by the time I finished the normally spot on Garmin recorded 10.09 miles and annoyingly at the 10 mile 'beep' I was under 71 minutes but by the finish I was over

Thanks to the organisers though - enjoyed it a lot.

Oh dear. Sorry about that. I was going to eod and then saw that it was pretty close to the limit last year. I`d guess that a fair few Fire folk and Northern Vets entered but didn`t turn up. I raced a 10k the week before and that was full on 1000 but with 828 finishers.
