This weekend coming there is a multi-terrain 10km hosted by Derwentside Harriers, one of the local athletics clubs. The route takes in a section of the Celestial Way and Hellhole Woods, near Beamish, hence the name of the race being the Hellhole 10km. This will be my next stop on my racing back to fitness strategy. Definitely not a pb course, but fun and hard work.
After a miserable weekend the sun is shining and at a pleasant 13C it is a wonderful autumn evening - so I'm off for a run over the tracks to Pont Burn.
