Big Flat Runway 10


For his return to racing after the Covid enforced hiatus Peter opted for possibly the most exposed circuit in England along the runway at Elvington Airfield near York. His plans for a relaxed start with even paced miles were thrown into disarray when he noted that a 2k stretch into the wind was around 30 seconds slower than the same effort gave him with the wind behind him. He was pleased to be able to accelerate up to parkrun pace for the final 5k overtaking the only two runners in sight on the last bend before the lonely mile long sprint to the finish. Delighted to get that first race back without any setbacks Peter has races planned for May where he is hoping to regain the sort of form he had in early 2020.
