Inaugural parkrun. 2nd - the first two were well ahead and I was with 4th for basically all of it - then I could see us gradually catching 2nd and I got him with about 100m to go and outsprinted him to the line. Really pushed hard. And only 6s off a pb, despite it having corners, slopes, gravel, grass and wind. So happy with this.
It was a nice course actually, 2 laps but the 2nd slightly different so there's really not much overtaking at all. Nice day for running too; still a bit warm but not too bad.

Great event. Bit conflicted as there were a lot of options today, but thought I'd do a shortish one given LDMT tomorrow.
Big climb on walk to the start (which I ran obvs) and then largely downhill course. Struggled with some of the peat hags just knowing which were mapped and which weren't. So there were some moments of confusion and APs were few and far between. The differences between stream, wet ditch and reentrant were not obvious. In general the best tactic seemed to be to trust the compass; a bit of pace counting wouldn't have gone amiss either but I didn't think of that at the time.
Some lovely running (the down bits), gamboling through the heather and grass. And the woodland at the end was great; no undergrowth.
Haven't seen any results yet (1st of 1) but happy with my performance; running well.
