The Burnsall 10 mile road race has now run its course. – another road race casualty of increasing road traffic.
I joined Holmfirth Harriers in 1967 with the event already on the club’s fixture list, and it has remained so until this year. I competed in this event many times with my best performance in 1977, winning in a time of 49min 19sec – a course record. This time has remained unbeaten for the past 45 years.
It is my intention to complete the course one final time. This will be a walk not a run.
When: Saturday 20th August 2022
Where: Burnsall main street
This is an open invitation to anyone interested in participating. This is not a fundraising event but is a Parkinson’s Awareness Walk. Therefore if possible please wear something sky blue. This is the colour adopted by the Parkinsons charity.
Hope to see as many of you there as possible.
