Did the 10k in 2019
This is my favourite 10k. Yes, it’s not the easiest by that also makes it the one you’ll remember. I’ve done it 3 times and I’m doing it again in January 2022.The course is wide open fire track roads so an easy running surface for road or trail shoes, the views at the top are stunning, the downhill sections are fun, and the “best” bit is kept to last. Always get a load of club mates up doing this - it is one that you always remember and it’s a real laugh. Do it!!!
