Race Date: Sunday 19th March 2017
Mmmmm, Dronfield 10k or Wolf’s Pit. If there was ever a decision to be made, Dewsbury 10k made it for me. Wolf’s Pit all the way. 5,6 miles with 1476 feet of elevation – or 7 times that of Dronfield 10k to put it into perspective – with a head wind to boot.
This race can be described in one word: awesome. An immediate climb in a headwind to the top of the plateau, a tail wind round the back of the plateau, down, up, down towards the finish but no….. up again before a mentally fast descent. For about 5 seconds my watch said I was doing a 2.30 minute mile.
The route guidance: follow Stuart Bond! He won in 42.22. The first woman home was Caitlin Rice of Ribble Valley Harriers in 48.19. I wonder how many times that winning combo has come up.
Well done to all the Striders taking part. There were some awesome efforts put in out there.
