York 10k 2018

This was my 4th year I’ve taken part in this event.

Its my favourite 10k in my home town. It’s a well organised event, running through the city of york, taking in some nice sights of York. The support from locals and marshalls is brilliant the whole way round.

Its a fast course, not completely flat, but well worth doing.

Will certainly be back next year.

Ryedale Running Festival Ampleforth 10k

This is my 2nd time I’ve completed this race, even though it is quite hilly in places, it’s still a nice scenic route.

There is a half marathon, 10k and a 5k event held at the same location. The half marathon runners and 10k runners set off at the same time. 

It starts in the Ampleforth College grounds and goes out into woods, and towards a village and back into the college grounds, it’s a mixture of tarmac roads and off road tracks The half marathon runners do the route twice.

Today the weather was horrendous, heavy rain all the way round, but despite this the marshalls did an excellent job, giving support, getting soaked like the runners!!

Its certainly a run to add to your diary if you like hills.

Bramham 10k

This is the first time I’ve done this race. 

I found it tough due to the really hot weather, it was 24deg before the start at 10.30am.

The course itself is not bad, the views along the route are really nice, it’s a mixture of roads and fields. Just when you think the finish is in sight, there is the ‘Bramham Beast’ (as it’s known) to conquer, it certainly is one hell of a hill. 

The marshalls along the route were supportive towards the runners. The race itself is well organised, I personally think it should start earlier, even if it’s just 30 mins.

Its a quite a good local 10k to take part in, if you don’t mind hills .

Glorious Gargrave 10k

This is another event of Itsgrimupnorthrunning, it’s the first time I’ve done this event. There were several distances to choose from , but I booked on to do the 10k. All distances were along the Leeds Liverpool Canal, the views along the route were amazing, it certainly lived up to its name.....Glorious Gargrave!!

The event was delayed by 15 mins, due to  marshalls not. In place. 

The support from marshalls, other runners and public  along the route was good/ great.

As with all these Itsgrimupnorth running events, it’s well worth running for, cakes at the finish....spoilt  for choice, goody bag containing chocolate and bottle of beer, well deserved medal and even  a BBQ today.

Look forward to other events with this company.

Pontefract 10k

This is the first time I’ve taken part in this race.

it was a well organised event,  marshals did an excellent job, supporting runners along the route.

The route itself was rather hilly in places, but it was ok, certainly makes a good training run.

The weather was kind to runners too, just perfect.

Overall I enjoyed the event, a reasonable priced event.

Hull HM

This is a new event for the run for all series....hull half marathon, absolutely awesome, the course is flat, well organised. The marshalls did a fantastic job, supporting all the runners, the atmosphere/ support  along the route was amazing.

Its  a fast and flat course to achieve PB,s  which I did today.Good course for runners taking part in their 1st half marathon.

Perfect running conditions today, would certainly recommend this event, like all  other Run For All Events, brilliant!!

Melmerby 10k

First time I’ve taken part in this race.

It was really hot morning, it’s certainly not a flat route, there were a few hills/ steep inclines in places, along the country roads.

The Marshall’s did a great job, and their support was brilliant along the route, along with the local residents.

The only downside for this race, is it could do to start earlier than 11.30am.

I would recommend this race, and will be back next year as I did enjoy running along the country roads.

VOY 10 mile

This is the 3rd time I’ve run in this event. 

Even though the race was delayed today, and  the race briefing couldn’t really be heard, the event was still enjoyable.

The course is mainly flat with the 1st mile completed on the runway then out along closed country roads, with  marshals cheering the runners along the way.

The finishers medal and t shirt are well worth it.

The downside at the end was trying to get out of the car park.

Would recommend this event and will be back again next year

Resolution Run 10K- York

Due to recent weather conditions  running up to this event, the route had to be altered slightly, but still enjoyed it.

The marshals showed  good support to the runners.

There was a 5k and a 10K event, both events had a lot of participants all taking part to support Stroke Association.

These resolution events are taking place throughout the country on different dates, would certainly recommend.

Yet another fantastic event organised by See York Run YorK at Elvington Airfield I ran the 5 miles but there  was also a 10mile race as well. The medal is amazing, as always the cakes were really yummy. The marshals were brilliant, cheering on all the runners. Can not fault this local running company. Look forward to running at many more  of their events . Well done Joni

Love these local events. Will certainly do it again next year if it is held again. Would recommend.

York Yuletide Trail

Another great, well organised event from See York Run York. The marshals were really supportive along the route. It was a nice  Trail route in and out of woods and along by the river. The goody bags at the finish were fab, the medal was outstanding and the cakes were so yummy. Worth every penny. Will certainly do it again.

Yorkshirecoast10k

First time I’ve done this race loved every minute of it.  It’s a great route along the Scarborough sea front. The race sells out pretty quick once entries open. It is well organised and the support along the route is great. The medal and t shirt is good too. Would certainly recommend be online as soon as entries open to get a place.
