2016 Double or Quits Race

Double or Quits Race

Saturday 28th of August 2016.

The course is around Shipley Park so for anyone that knows Shipley Park they know that means it is an undulating course.

Course

The race is either 1 x 5 mile lap or 2 laps depending on a few options
1 – your training plan
2 – how you feel on the day
or
3 – if you simply wish to put yourself through the pain of 2 laps!!

The course has varying different types of terrain including some tarmac sections with speed bumps. To cap it all it had been raining earlier in the day plus more was expected so the choice was normal running trainers or something else – maybe cross country trainers which is what I plumped for.

I did two laps last year and went for it again this year but it so took it out of me this year! I don’t know, maybe it was the rain, it did rain but we got away with it lightly or maybe it was the trainers! Luckily the rain wasn’t too bad for the under 1 hour and 45 finished but those left running would have hated it even more especially when it chucked it down!

Anyway – less of my bleating —–
