The Thirsk 10 has been run for over 30 years and in the early days it was run from Northallerton to Thirsk. However with the passage of time and the increase in road traffic the route had to be changed. For many years the route went through Sowerby and then out into the country, but some years ago the route had to be changed again because of the problems with closing the roads around town and the resulting traffic congestion. The finish is at the main grandstand at Thirsk Race Course. A fast flat course which lends its self to a fast time and gives all abilities a chance of achieving a PB.
Having a change from his usual race at Baildon, possibly due to the rescheduling of this race, Peter May took on this 10 miler and ran superbly finishing 109th in a time of 1:08:43 and 4th out of 30 in his age Category.
Well done Pete fast stuff.
