The Yorkshire Marathon by Sarah Burn

The event was very well organised, marshalled and supported which was fantastic.

The weather held off (I think the forecast was originally pretty grim) but it remained overcast and a little bit windy, but nothing to write home about.

Personally I found the route quite pleasant! I’m sure others may disagree especially as ‘flat’ refers to Yorkshire flat, i.e. quite a few long slow drags up and down, but again nothing major. I thought the hill at mile 25 was great as my legs had something different to do than run through treacle!

I came in at 4:05:23 which was less than a minute shy of my PB in my first marathon, however that was 7 years and 3 kids ago, so I’m pretty pleased with that one.
Finished 1493 of 3880 overall, and 108 of 445 17-34 F.

Hello club members and friends of the Thirsk 10 road race. We would just like to provide a brief update to inform everybody that for obvious reasons the Thirsk 10 race will not be held in March 2021 however, we intend to reassess the situation in the Spring with a view to holding the event later in the year subject to national and local restrictions in place at the time. We apologise for the disappointment this will undoubtably cause, however I am sure that everybody appreciates that the Covid 19 Pandemic is a fluid situation with rules and restrictions seemingly changing on a daily basis. We will provide a further update in once we have been able to consider matters. Assuring you of our best intentions at all times, keep running and stay safe. The Thirsk 10 Team.
