Big Flat Runway Race 4th October 2020

With the majority of races either postponed or cancelled in the last 7 months, Racebest managed to get the go ahead to organise a day of racing at Elvington Airfield in York. With the airfield closed to the public and spectators runners were ushered around in a swift and well planned event.

There were several distances to choose from with the majority of us opting for the 10k (eventually) with Michelle racing the 5k.

As per the title the route was fairly flat, well I say fairly it was as as flat as you can get and many a PB would should have been possible had it not been for the headwind from hell on 1 side of the circuit, as it was it was great to get out racing and have a bit of competition which is what I’m sure we’re all missing and once the lady with the megaphone had wished Queensbury all the best we were off.
