Chase the Sun 10k

A race on a Thursday? In the evening? Unheard of! 

But that’s exactly what super speedster Simon Pilcher was upto this week.

With 3 distances up for grabs this little evening jaunt promised to be fast and flat. Set at the magnificent Prestwold Hall just outside Loughborough in Leicestershire the course utilises the race track there.  The glorious backdrop of the Cromwellian Manor House. 

Simon opted for the 10k. Which meant 4 laps of the race circuit. Setting off at 7pm there was no problem for posthaste Pilcher to get the race got by the time the sun set. 

“There was a stiff headwind on the main straight” he tells me

Despite this though, he managed to sneak on to the podium in 3rd place and a yet another PB in a tidy 35.27.
