Humpty Dumpty 10k

Thank you Hayley for this weekend’s report:

I haven’t run a 10k for a while and I was nervous about running this course as I had heard it was hilly and the weather was warmer than I’d like.

The start and finish is at Reedham village hall, I arrived far too early but calmed my nerves in the shade for a while. Once running I quickly settled into a steady pace and discovered the hills were flatter than I imagined and there was a lovely breeze across the fields. It is an undulating course but very pretty and takes in the villages of Reedham and Freethorpe. The roads are open to traffic but well marshalled and drivers were very considerate. There were two water stations and some friendly villagers offering support and sweets along the route. I forgot to spot the Humpty Dumpty Brewery on my way back to the village hall but I did notice a field of alpacas etc at Petitts, this made me smile all the way to the finish.

I enjoyed this run so much more than I anticipated and would highly recommend it. There were many age group prizes up for grabs and instead of a medal we were given a Humpty Dumpty Brewery glass at the finish. There was plenty of cake, bacon rolls and tea available at the finish.

I’m happy with my efforts in the heat and I’m left wondering if maybe I am a ‘summer runner’ after all.
