Big Vegan Weekend gathering of VRs at this parkrun. Was going to run easy but the weather was great and could not resist overtaking. Mile splits show I pushed on after the first half mile, as the runners spread out.

It started to rain as the race director said a few words and we had 2 minutes silence. I’d found out a bit about the course from another runner on the start line, positioned myself behind the fastest runners but not that far back.
The start was downhill then rose into a long hill about 1.5 miles long. After that was about 3 miles of downhill, then a flattish mile to the finish. The first 2 miles were good tarmac, then compacted stone trail.
Felt good on the hill, pushed hard down the downhill and kept it going along to the end.
Knocked 6 minutes off my 10k PB that I’d set at Stockport in September. Finished 101st out of 455. Was 17th in my age category out of 52. Very happy.
And I was going to do this race easy and work hard at Brighton next weekend! Guess I’ll swap it round and enjoy flat Brighton.

First run on the new course at Graves. Seemed to be hillier than previous, enjoyed it.
Pushed from the start, as heart rate shows.
