Great Northern 10k & Half

The “Great” Northern  10k & Half Marathon http://www.huubevents.com/events/great-northern-run-2018/ 

It was a hot one. Using the old Great Northern railway line for a large portion of the route keeps you away from the roads, so a potentially good race. Unfortunately the weather conditions showed up some lack of road race organisation nouse. Not great organisation by all accounts and an events company (Huub) to avoid in the future (well they’ll never learn if people keep entering their events).

Despite all that we still got 2 good runs in the bag including a top 10 Female overall and 3rd place FV35  for Laura. Good work in the sweatfest. 

10k

63 (8F. 3FV35). Laura Hatswell 51:02

Half

48. Peter Starr 01:56:26

 

Unfortunately they put the start in the wrong place vs their course measurement certificate  which resulted in the races being 150-200m short for the 10k and half.

EDCP finding = Not 10k. Not ½ marathon.
