Elswick 10 miles road race

20/07/2013

On Saturday 20th, Lisa Finlay made an impulsive decision to travel south to take part in the Elswick Express 10 mile race...

"My family were away camping for the weekend, so when I woke early on Saturday morning I decided to drive down to Elswick, a little village near Preston, for this well organised and attractive 10 mile race. It was a flattish, rural course but made challenging by the soaring temperatures. I realised I had some strong competition as there were a couple of fast looking female runners in the race, however, I tried to ignore the competition and ran at a pace I felt I could sustain in the heat. It was one of those rare and lovely days when it all feels relatively easy, perhaps because I didn't look at my watch too much, and I was delighted to win in a new PB of 61:33. The goody bags were distinctive, containing a voucher for a free ice-cream and a water melon!

It was worth the hot and long drive down, even though the air conditioning broke in my car and I had to drive with the windows open all the way!!"
