about 130ft

This popular 10K attracted over 1000 runners and took place on typical Cheshire, rural roads.  There was plenty of parking on a field and then it was a short walk to pick up my race number and shoe-based timing chip.   There were portaloos but with long queues nearer race start time. 

The race started with about 400m on a rough surface, then it was onto the tarmac for a slightly uphill start.  Although the profile indicates that there was only 130ft of climb, it felt more and the middle section felt like it was slightly up hill for about a mile.  At the end it was slightly downhill and along the rough surface to the finish line.  The goodies included a cotton T-shirt, fruit, water and flapjacks.  There were also hot drinks vendors. 

The race attracted some top runners, including Helen Clitheroe who as a vet 40 managed to knock out 32:45 to set a new ladies course record. Very well marshaled and results came out that evening. Id say it is a fast course, though not as fast as the Trafford 10K.

Height Profile

Pretty flat, but I felt the slight incline from 4 to 6 Km
