Dewsbury 10k PB – 2015 race report

Dewsbury 10k is a perfect PB race if you’re chasing speed, it’s got a large and fast field and it’s a straight and flat out and back with only a slight bit of elevation so I wanted to do well and knock a chunk off my last 10k (37:50) more than a year ago.

Holding w.e 14/12/14

I felt really down after Frostbite last week, despite it not being an A race for me, I’d still hoped to do well on what looked a very runnable and speedy course through some lovely countryside, my DNF felt really significant after a few days thought.
