Roche Abbey Autumn Trail (Sunday 27 September) is a jewel in the It’s Grim Up North Running (IGUN) crown with its choice of distances, mixture of terrain and stunning countryside. This was still the case at this Covid-secure event where runners tackled hills and nettles as they completed multiple laps in and around the ruins of the 12th century Roche Abbey.
A Grade II listed building, Roche Abbey is described as a: “Fabulous hidden gem often overlooked as a place to visit in South Yorkshire”. It received a stream of visitors on Sunday as over 130 runners passed under the Gothic arches before continuing on their way in their chosen distance whilst practicing social distancing. Big up to Phillip for the reminder and links.
Well done to Phillip and Karol who raced the 10k event, with Phillip managing a 7th place finish with a 54:09 followed by Karol in 1:18:36.
Well done to you both, awesome stuff.
