Race Reports, February 2007

Snake Lane 10, Pocklington, 25th February

Dave Robson

It was quite misty early in the morning at Pocklington (about a 1h 45min drive from Durham), but the sun came out and burnt off the mist leaving a sunny morning. I was bit late arriving to park in the rugby club and I had to park a bit further away at the local College. By the time I had reached the rugby club in my running gear, it had started to cloud over and I felt a bit underdressed but it was too late to go back to the car. We assembled at the Rugby Club and we were then led across town to the start. The race runs through attractive countryside via meandering quiet county roads and is almost completely flat. We passed advertisements for the Yorkshire Wolds half-marathon which is run in July and uses a little of the same route (be warned, that race is certainly not flat !) There was slight breeze which felt like it was in our faces for the first seven miles and then behind us as we ran up the small climbs on our return to Pocklington. A commemorative mug, mars bar and a sachet of glucosamine gel to all finishers.
