Framlingham 10k – 04/09/2022

The Framlingham 10k is a really lovely event hosted by the Framlingham Flyers in their picturesque home town. The race starts in the town centre and heads out onto country lanes via the town hill. It is a two lap undulating course with good support and marshalling along the route.

Yesterday the start was at 11am and the conditions very warm to put it mildly. There were plenty of water stops though and a little shade at points round the course. The climb up the hill the second time doesn’t seem too bad but at the third count the end can’t come soon enough.

Unfortunately once you have conquered the town hill for the third time you are taken through some grassy paths to run round a rather large playing field. This can actually feel longer than the hill!

I was the only Jaguar participating yesterday but there were a few other Norfolk vests on show.

The age categories were 10 year groups and I managed to claim first FV50 with 47.55. I was rewarded with a lovely wooden plaque showing Framlingham Castle and lunch in the Castle Inn!
