The Bradford 10K

Bradford 10K 2013

We couldn’t find our star runner John Halliwell for the pre race photo, but we were allowed into the Town Hall to capture the moment!

John was the first Abbey home in a time of 40:44 and Jim Whittaker claimed he got back in 42:30 but there is no record of this in the official results. I did see him near the half way mark, but he was running in the opposite direction!

What a brilliant run by Victoria, who was first in her age category.

John Halliwell 40:44 M40 13 48

Bradford is notorious for it’s steep hills, but fortunately this race is flat along Canal Road, except for a short climb at the start up to the Cathedral.

  1. My time was actually 42:55, Age Position M40 23 and Chip Position 84.

    Don’t know why they left off my running club on the results.

  2. I am on the results! – honest!! – position 84th!!

    Or did I dream the whole race?? That’s happened before!

  3. Hi Jim,

    Oops, Sorry Jim. I searched under Abbey Runners and for some reason you are down as un-attached!
    It makes for interesting journalism perhaps.
    At least I gave you a better finishing time!
