It's been a busy week in the Pitsea Running Club Grand Prix with Chase The Sun at the Olympic Park 5k race on Wednesday evening and the Ingatestone 5, 5 mile race on Sunday morning.
Wednesday night and the Pitsea Running Club runners went all out at Grand Prix race number 2,, Chase the Sun @ Queen Elizabeth Park. 5k. I reckon we totally smashed it with Adam Stow, Dave Beatty and Cheryl Macdonald all coming first in their age categories and me coming second in my age category.
A very undulating (very hilly) 5 mile race taking in the scenic countryside of Ingatestone. I had been warned about 'that hill' at mile 4 but it really wasn't too bad in my opinion - more a short incline. But what goes up must go down and we all experienced a very enjoyable downhill finish.
Entries have now closed for the next Grand Prix race, the Pleshey Half Marathon on the 19th September but you still have time to register for Grand Prix Races Five and Six.
10th October - Tiptree 10
17th October - Chelmsford Half Marathon
