Glad you found the route a challenge. The Devil's Chimney was high up on the left as you were running through the woods after the steep incline between miles 1-2. I imagine you were more focussed on breathing at that point
Hope you've managed to locate the results now - www.dbmax.co.uk and click on the results tab at the top. A sterling effort for your first organised race!
Sarahson - sorry you couldn't make it this time. Hopefully see you at another Almost Athlete event in the future.
A flat 10k road run this is not but all standards of runner are welcome and we would love to see you. We are a friendly bunch and love all runners! You can just rock up and enter any time from 3:30pm this afternoon. Wear off road shoes if you have them!
The race is mostly off road, but some parts of it are run on the road. There is a narrow uphill section with a bit of loose gravel and a longish section through the woods with lots of exposed tree roots. We do advise trail shoes in general but you might well get away with road shoes as we've had such a long spell of hot dry weather recently. Why not bring both and make a decision on the day when you've spoken to some of our club runners who regularly run the route? I will see if I can one of them to post some advice on here.
Hope to see you on Saturday. The weather is set fair, the BBQ will be on and the bar open
