I meant to sign up for this race last year but never got around to it,
I had hoped on hitting a personal best during this run and beating the 1:13 I set in training for running a 10mile, however I was wary that this may not be do-able considering the Stook 10mile had a number of hills including one big hill to climb before mile 8 but I figured I "might" be able to make up for this on the flying mile.
What is the flying mile I hear you ask?
Well, the flying mile is mile 8 - mile 9 during the race that's all down a very steep hill. It even has timing mats at the start and end of the mile so its great fun to see if you can set a fast pace.

Seriously enjoyed 8-9 as I managed a 6min mile (63rd Rank) even with the hill climbing still in the legs. Very well organized and supported race. Not the PB of 1:10 or under I had hoped for but really enjoyed it.
Finish time: 1:13:12 (69th Place)
