St. Levan 10K on a mizzly Land's End

August 11, 2017

 

Round 12 in the Cornish Grand Prix Series, the St. Levan 10K takes runners on a 10K loop around country roads of the Land's End peninsula. Starting and finishing at St. Levan playing field, the course incorporates some hills but is fairly fast by Cornish standards with PB potential. Any thoughts of a nice scenic run were soon quashed though as persistent mizzle covered the Land's End peninsula on this miserable Friday evening, making it difficult even to see more than 100m in front in some parts of the race.
The race starts on the road outside the playing field, initially flat but soon starting a gentle climb northwards. The main hills are in the first two thirds of the race, typically comprising long drags rather than steep backbreaking ascents. From two thirds in, the gradient is mostly flat or gently downhill with a gentle rise again back towards the playing fields and finishing by doing a loop on the grass.
There seemed to be an abundance of prizes for the finisher at the end of this race, including a rock plaque and a choice of two medals from the generous Mounts Bay Harriers...
