Bollington 10k


It was a beautifully sunny, late summer morning for Bollington 10k. This is one of the most scenic of all of our fixtures – resulting in sheer pleasure of being able to run. Marathon training Damien & Ruth had just come for a little ‘bimble’, revelling in what seemed like a short distance. Yana & Rachel joined them as a team of four hardy Belle Vue Racers.
The course set off (& finished) at the leisure centre. The first 5k is very undulating, but never overwhelmingly steep for long. The route goes through Bollington centre, out to Pott Shrigley, where cyclists & runners merged harmoniously, & then on to the Middlewood Way for a couple of flat miles back to Bollington. The views are incredible at times & there’s lots to look at in terms of countryside & posh abodes. It’s a well marshalled course with good local support; chip timed with a decent medal thrown in.
Damien Tolan came home first with a PB, followed by Rachel Watson, Yana Anderton, & lastly Ruth Amin with a PB.  The season is nearly over – just Hatters Half Marathon, Blackleach YMCA trail race, & the 12 minute test left.     Ruth
