|Denis Culloty at the Welcome Tavern 10k|
Prior to the start the race director stood on a wall and entertained the crowd with his pre-race instructions, “Please don't take any pictures of me - I'm on Disability Benefits!",
"If your feet suddenly get wet - you've run into the River Ribble - get out quickly"
The course initially meandered several times around a housing estate for the first 2km, then followed a downhill section to the river. The route then went over the river then through Avenham Park, returning across the river and back up a couple of decent gradients.
|What the route should have been - 10k!|
The finish was pretty well organised apart from runners milling around moaning about the 10k that wasn't 10k. Mic Escolme, did you have anything to do with planning this route??
All in all a decent race and a half decent time!
