The forth year of the ‘hilly’ Burnley 10K greeted the c. 2000 competitors with wall-to-wall sunshine. The race started and finished in the fabulous Towneley Park with a short road section linking this section with a loop around Thompson Park. Burnley really is blessed with some great parks.
ABurnley 10k - Graham Plewsnyway, given my recent demands on NHS resources I’m not sure how sensible it was for me to enter the race but I thought “you only live once” and its all good triathlon training so lets go for it! A couple of years ago my time of 46.51 would probably have plunged me into a state of depression (only kidding!) but when I saw I came third in my AG out of 33 and 148th overall decided perhaps this wasn’t too shabby after-all. 
The race was part of the Jane Thomlinson series and was really well organised and supported so recommended for anyone wanting to augment their triathlon training with a race-pace 10K run effort.
