One place avoiding the snow this weekend, much to the delight of Gillian Jago was Chester. With a multitude of events cancelled it’s fair to say events actually being run were few and far between. Having entered this popular race as part of her ultra marathon training, this award winning, sell-out 10K is Chester’s only city-based 10K, now in it’s 6th year it’s billed as one of the the best City Centre 10K in the North West and is the first event of the Chester Triple Series. Runners joined the line up for what turned out to be an amazing day. This event sells out year on year. The fast course starts from Nuns Road next to the iconic Chester Racecourse and heads north-west out of the City along wide roads allowing runners to rapidly settle into race pace, then passing close to the picturesque village of Mollington, before returning to the heart of Chester City centre passing the historic Victorian town hall and Medieval Cathedral, before finishing on Eastgate Street with a spectacular backdrop of the Eastgate Clock. All finishers received a technical T-shirt, bespoke medal and a top-quality goody bag. In what turned out to be good running conditions Gillian cruised around this one posting a time of 54:58 Brilliant running Gill, well done!
