Pudsey Fun Run & 10k

posted in: Race Reports | 0

Race 7 of the club’s Summer championship came in the form of this challenging 10k race hosted by Pudsey Pacers AC  and 2019 will be the 29th anniversary of this event. A fun day for all the family starts with an under 8’s park run at 9:30am followed by a 3k family fun run at 10am and finally the 10k challenge at 10:45am. The fun run begins from Pudsey Cenotaph, goes along Carlisle Road, with a left turn on to Fartown, Roker Lane, left turn on Littlemoor Road, along to the next left turn on Radcliffe Lane which takes runners up to park entrance to a raucous finish inside the park. The 10k race is a multi terrain, undulating course, again starting from Pudsey Cenotaph, South Parade to Littlemoor Road. Left turn on to Littlemoor Road, left turn on to Radcliffe Lane, left turn on to Chapletown, left turn on to Carlisle Road, right turn on to Fartown, left turn on to Bankhouse Lane and into the Valley. Runners then return from Tyersal Lane, Smalewell Road, right turn Green Lane, left turn Greentop, proceed on to Fartown, Roker Lane, left turn on to Littlemoor Road, along to left turn on Radcliffe Lane and up to Park entrance. It was clear to see from the finishers that it was very muddy in places, not surprising given the heavy rain we have had over the past couple of weeks. None the less we had some sterling performances from Claire Hern (46:20) Daniel Jenkins (49:34) Tony Redmond (55:20) Brian Perfitt (01:03:05) Sarah Rawlings (01:03:17) Mick Hogan (01:05:35) Sarah Myers (01:10:46) and Vicky Cousins (01:10:46) Taking part in the family fun run (with a little less mud!) we had Julie Steele and Marcus Myers. Well done Everyone & thanks to our support & photography & volunteering crew.
