Im dong the Nissan 10k on 27th August and was just wondering if anyone is doing it or has done it before?

Never done it before but if it starts on their sports field and the route goes around those roads i bet its pretty grim scenery. No fancy for this one myself

It's the first race so no one has done it before :>}

Did Darlington last week and got a PB - so I thought I'd try this one - this should be as flat as a pancake as well.

Taking wife and toddler - face painting, bouncy castle etc. should keep them quiet (and I can get a mark in the good books as it counts as a family outing!!)

Hello all

I wont be there for the first running of this event(away in blackpool for one of the lads stag weekends)!!

As an employee of Nissan i can tell you this will be a well organised race.Theres loads to do for the family while the grown ups are running around the factory.Theres a kiddies fun run and a 5k run before the 10k.The route is flat as a pancake,traffic free,the roads are very wide so loads of leg room!! If people dont get pbs on this course id be very surprised.
A couple of weeks ago nissan had its family day from the sports and social club where the HQ of the run starts.About 2/3k people turned up and the event went off very smooth.Theres ample free parking with changing,showers and a cheap pint in the bar afterwards in the sports and social club.
Hope you all enjoy the run and the day.
All the best.

Just to say if you pop over to the Northern Social thread there are a few of us doing it on Sunday!

I am glad it is flat although know my time will be pathetic!

Hope to see you there!

Well what do you think?

Not as big a turn out as I expected, too many races in the summer?...October might have beena better choice.

Apart from the headwind on the back straight, a good PB course. My best 10k time for a very long time

Thanks Chester

Have to agree with OOK,no where near as many people turned out as i was expecting. I thought for sure more fast lads would of jumped at the chance of a flat course to knock out a pb. Do you think the weather put them off,it was fairly windy,i'm glad i wasn't running,lol.

What was the turnout? I thought it would be a big field as well.

I was there too. Enjoyed it and got a PB. It was windy, but I think the fact that they put wind turbines there should have given us a clue!

It wasn't that well publicised - if I hadn't found it on RW' website then I would never have known about it......

I was also surprised that the turnout was low - particularly the 'fast lads' who you see at every NE race. I suppose that the field will grow next year as it becomes more widely known.

I went off too fast at start, flagged from lack of water at the middle and the wind didn't help. Despite that I matched my Darlington time. I'm returning next year for Nissan 2007 - a good PB beckons I think!!!
