    Brampton - Carlisle 10 Mile

    A rush of blood to the head saw me enter this last night.

    Apparently the first ever road 10 miler to be ran in the UK. Supposedly a fast course. 400 entered already.

    Anybody done it before...?

    My partner and I are accredited course measurers and have recently measured this race which has a net descent of 65m so potentially very fast on A689 and then through some nice vilages before crossing the M6 and into Carlisle where it finishes on the bridge over the River Eden.

    It's a fast one.
    I was 65th one year in 54 minutes. It was won in 46.
    One step beyond.

    I'll be looking to go under 64, never mind getting anywhere near 54...

    I looked at the 2019 results and it does seem a high standard race... i guess the fast reputation attracts people looking for a quick time.

    If it's the same turnout and standard as 2019 i won't be making the top 100.... by contrast last weekends Coventry Half Marathon i would have made top 50 out of 2200 runners without any issue.

    A cold morning, but great running conditions.

    Bit of a headwind most of the way... little respite as its a linear course... but otherwise it's a very quick course, so no complaints from me.

    Had a target of 64mins, and fell short by 20 seconds. Realised it was just slipping away at about the 7 mile mark, and threw the kitchen sink at it to try and pull it back, but unable to find those 20secs.

    I don't often race on the roads, but that was a goodun' and i expect i'll be back next year.
