Race Report by Mike Robbins
It was a chilly and breezy morning In Thirsk, but the sun shone brightly. We arrived early to collect our race numbers and have a brief warmup. It is a couple of minutes walk across the racecourse to the start line and after a short briefing, the gun went and then we were off.
A cold but gentle head wind greeted us for first few miles, so it took a while to really warmup. The start is usually quite crowded, but it quickly thinned out and we managed to get into our stride.
Anybody that has not
Coming to the out and back section we passed the race leaders going the other way and is a great opportunity to see who is in front and behind you!
As always, the final mile seemed never ending, with a final push at Thirsk railway station and the last few ‘furlongs’ ran alongside the racecourse. With a last sharp left turn into the racecourse and a dash towards the finish line.
Great performances again from Stephen and Sarah Roe, coming in as 1st and 2nd Marsh House Harriers and another great turnout from the club, with strong running from everyone. Well done.
