With injuries/ill health taking their toll Eccleshill had just one participant in the Asda Foundation York 10k, aptly staged on Yorkshire day! Annie Kisluk stepped out in the blue and white once again this time in this beautiful city, on what began as a drizzly morning but soon brightened to let through glorious sunshine interspersed with cloudy moments to provide near perfect conditions for running. This race has been described as one of the country’s most beautiful city runs. Since its launch in 2009 by the Jane Tomlinson charity, the event has also grown into one of Yorkshire’s most popular 10K’s. The York 10K offers runners the unique opportunity to race through the heart of this wonderful city often to the sound of the Minster bells. The route starts and finishes in Knavesmire Road, close to York Racecourse. It then takes in some of the city’s most historic landmarks, including the ancient city walls, Clifford’s Tower and the Minster. The atmosphere is always electric from start to finish. And for runners chasing that elusive PB, the flat and fast course is perfect. Annie finished in a brilliant time of 55:05. Well done!
