Worcester Pitchcroft 10K, Sunday 11th June 2017 Print

Andrew Wadsworth writes >>

This is one event I have had in mind to do for a couple of years, usually it seems to clash with other races, this year being no exception with the Two Castles and the Aldridge 10K on the same day!. I'd done a Worcester AC organised event about a month ago, so was confident it would be very well organised occasion.


The race is named after the park in which Worcester racecourse is based, and for 80% of the time follows a well paved path around the racetrack and alongside the river. The course can only be described as pancake flat, oval shaped, apart from couple of 90 degree turns, and about 3200m per lap, so just over three laps. Perhaps not the most technically challenging 10k race ever but certainly a quick one.

Loads of marshalled parking and facilities provided within the centre of the racecourse, plus a terraced stand for spectators to watch the action which meant great support each time the grandstand was passed, Probably one of the most attractive medals I have received provided at the end, showing Worcester cathedral in great detail.

162 runners on the day, in slightly windy conditions the Sparkhill runners finished as below

 15 
 Frank Inman  
 39.01 
 37 
 Andrew Wadsworth 
 41.47

Would recommend this race especially if you want to test how fast you can complete a 10k, I managed a PB so no complaints here!
