Type: Road
Comments: A scorching hot day, for one of the flattest 10k races you'll find around. Low key with under 150 entrants, so plenty of room along the runways to get a good position for a PB. The airbase seems very dated now, quite overgrown and derelict in places. Haunting almost - a silent echo of the cold war. Off on the dot of 10am for a zig-zag route round the base. The wind was behind us mostly on the first half, but against us for the last mile along the main runway, making it a challenging race to the finish. The fire service were at the end to hose us down and then offer free rides round the base!
