  • Well done moger, I was there too, nowhere near as fast as you though! It was a great day, my first 10k in the bag! I forgot to give my chip thingy back, didn't realise til I got home.... Ah well 😊. Keen to do another one though.


  • thanks Madge50 glad you enjoyed it and well done on your first 10k it was a bit windy out there and at least i knew those hill were coming up but a very good local race ,theres loads of nice races around this way my next 2 races are manchester then bupa 10000 10k in london but you have histon half in june

  • Thanks moger, I've gone for the Fengallop 10k in June, although I won't be 'galloping' that's for sure, and the cambridge race for life 5k also in June. There is another 10k at Bourn in September, that I'm looking at and the Bonfire burn in November. That first 10k was such a buzz, would certainly do Cambourne again.

    Good luck for Sunday.


  • im doing bonfire burn but will have a look at bourn ive got september free happy running

  • Oooh bonfire burn 10K sounds good, got a free October/November (apart from Trafalgar Night drunken foolishness :) ) an end of year run could be good.
