Well done to all that turn out on a cold sunny morning at the Bradford City Park 10K,Bingley won the team event and was presented with a splendid silver plate,which is now having our name inscribed on it,we also had lots of age categories winners,Andrea Dennison FV 45,Shaun Jordan M55,Tony Kingham M65,John Smithurst MV70.
Now for the bad news the course was way short by three quarters of a mile,it was 5.36.
It was a Marshal error that sent everybody the wrong way,it must be pointed out that all the 800 runners ran the same distance,so it made no difference to the result positions.
It was the same in the 5k race,were les Haynes won the M70’s.
Full results to follow,if like me you want to know what you could have run for a 10k,if you have your time divide by 5.36 then times it by 6.21.
For example the time i got was 42.36 if only,if it had been a true 10k and i had kept up my average pace i would have ran a 49.46 10K.
