The Askern 10K event run on Wednesday 21st May was well attended by Go Veggie members, a couple of whom had half an eye on PBs. Unfortunately the event was something of a suffer-fest with a high temperatures and a thick oppressive humidity making for very heavy going - in spite of the 7.00pm start. Of the almost 700 starters, few seemed pleased with their times on this otherwise fairly fast course. Most seemed about two minutes behind their usual 10K pace.
Mick W, Emma S, Rosie Wigg and Steve W all gave it a go and times ranged between high thirties and low fifties. Emma ran well against locally known competition and thankfully Rose seemed to get round unscathed following an enforced four weeks out with an Achilles injury.
