    Did my first Northern Masters Athletic Club event today in the majestically beautiful setting of Smithills country Park Bolton .I opted for the 10k trail race �� (5k one lap also available ,entry was very simple age cat & name guest or ? pay 3 either way.Job done no kit checks no faff map of course available but not needed ..Went of bang on time after a couple of warnings ..
    Across Smithills School fooball pitches with steeper hill than yesterdays GMXC past Smithills Hall up by the back of the "walled garden" up the hill right turn at Tippet house across to Horrocks woods straight on past the old miners railway wagon turn right and fast down the bridle way (chopped tyres & sand 200,000 worth)mind the ruts ,proper ankle breakers these ,Ken did warn us �� steeply up the hill to rejion the route past Tippet House back to the leisure centre and if like me 10k repeat ,the sun was out on the second lap marvellous.Hot free showers available for those who wanted them ,I gave my thanks to the organizers and marshals and did a warm down 3 mile jog home .
