The event was at Sessay and based at the cricket ground which was excellent for parking and also for warming up before the race. It had been red hot through out the daytime and thankfully by the time of the race in the evening a few clouds had appeared which made for a glorious summer evening.
The race started and I found myself leading the way, I was well within my comfort zone and by the time I was approaching the first kilometre marker I was starting to think maybe the week off and greediness was

I might not of been too keen to be racing at this present time but I was chuffed to bits that I went in the end as it was good to catch up with some old running friends that I haven't seen for a long while.
I didn't manage to qualify for a prize which was quite funny, being a chocholic and cake munching machine that is in the process of giving up, the prize was in fact a box of chocolates. If the race free time can wait so can the chocolate free time.
Prize wise it reminded me of the fell races, after turning to sport to get away from alcohol I found it funny to be winning bottles of spirits. Time to give up cash on that basis me thinks.
Finally, it was another awesome race organised by Thirsk and Sowerby Harriers. A great job by Marian Codling and the other members that helped out.
