Ash's Busy Weekend

[Mon 7th Jun 2010]Ash was first at the park run 5K at Exhibition Park on Saturday morning (5th June) in a time of 16:27, in ideal running conditions before the day started to warm up. He then competed in the 5000m at the track & field meeting at Middlesborough later in the afternoon (see separate report). If that was not enough, Ash then competed in a multi-terrain 10k on Sunday at Harewood House near Harrogate. A very beautiful and very undulating scenic run away from cars in the surrounding areas to the house, farmerís fields, tracks through woodlands in the rain and slippery mud. Ash finished in a pleased 6th in a time of 36:02, after one of the longest hills he has ran up in the middle of the course of nearly 2 miles (could have done with a cable car or something half way up). Knowing this now Ash wonít be running this one next year.
