Bob Wells 1.08.38 1st MV65


Some claim that the Derwentwater 10 mile race, a clockwise tour of the Lake starting and finishing in Keswick, is the most scenic road race in the UK and runners travel long distances to take part. The weather was perfect for the 56th edition of the race and the views were truly magnificent. Of course, good scenery usually involves hills and the Derwentwater is no exception - there are some particularly hard climbs between miles 5 and 8 (in Fred Whitton cycling sportive country), Some competitors in my part of the field were walking. Consequently I was surprised and very pleased with my time.
