Not the Ellesmere 10K, Shropshire, Friday, August 23, 2013

Colin Blackburn

On Sunday I didn’t do the Ellesmere 10K. In fact I didn’t know the Ellesmere 10K existed. But I was in Ellesmere. Not Ellesmere Port but Ellesmere, Shropshire. Ellesmere is pretty. Ellesmere has a mere and so Ellesmere is flat. Ellesmere is pretty flat. The Ellesmere 10K has 31 metres of climb. That’s 3 metres of climb for every kilometre. It’s that flat. Oswestry Olympians, the club that organises the Ellesmere 10K, say, “This race was won [in 2012] in 29.12 which was the 6th fastest time in the UK for a road race.” It’s that flat. The Ellesmere 10K has chip timing. The Ellesmere 10K costs only £10. That’s £1 per kilometre. The Ellesmere 10K includes a technical t-shirt and a goody bag. The Ellesmere 10K is good value. The Ellesmere 10K has PB potential. Oswestry Olympians say, “The sun usually shines on this race.” On Sunday the 25th of August 2013 the sun did shine on the Ellesmere 10K.

I’d recommend the Ellesmere 10K but I didn’t do the Ellesmere 10K. I went cycling.
