Full race report will follow in a couple of days. Ran my 10km race at Highclere Castle - you will recognise the house from it's starring role in Downton Abbey).
The Castle (Mrs MarkyD took this photo this morning after we'd all run in front of the house and down this path);
Fantastic technical T-shirt with silhouette of the castle (currently in the wash)(instead of a medal);
Beautiful, sunny autumnal morning, cold but bright;
Great organisation (again) from Newbury AC;
10km in less than one hour;
Spectacular views across the North Wessex Downs AONB, and gorgeous parkland running.
Spectacular views from a very hilly course;
Long grass for first 1km and wet feet from 3 minutes into the run;
10km took longer than my training program predicted .
Well done everyone for a great weekend of parkruns and other events. Enjoy your running.
