Thanks to all those runners who took part in yesterday's Bass Half Marathon.  Again the weather was kind although I may ask for it a little cooler next time.  Below are the links to the race photographs and also the race results.  What a pretty bunch of runners I had and fast runners at that!  Thanks to all those who have also provided feedback on the race -if you enjoyed it, please tell your friends and fellow runners and help me grow these races! Dont forget, my other race the Bass Belle 10 Miler, which sold out in 2016, is open for business, with Early bird available until 31st August.  If you enjoyed the half, you will love the 10 miler. Get booked in now by clicking on the bookings tab above!






Sunday 2nd July is the date for the fourth  Bassingbourn 'Brainstrust' Half Marathon and the seventh  event of Fit4thechallenge.   If you have ran any of those races then you will know what to expect.  If not, here is the low down - my courses always include off road sections, beautiful scenery, sometimes a bit of mud and also the odd hill, which remember goes up as well as down.  The course consists of 12.1 miles on road and 1 mile off road along a grass track.  The course has been measured by GPS only.
