I travelled down to Magor for the 10k as it was part of the EastWales road race championships. It was the first time this race had been run. The start and finish was at Undy football club, and it was a well organized event, over a relatively flat course. 207 runners finished with Andrew Hussey (Cheltenham) winning by 1 second, in 33:30. I finished 6th (35:11); I was disappointed not to have run quicker but I paid the price for going off with the leaders through the first few kilometres. I picked up the prize for first vet 35-45, I also came first in the East Wales championships for my age group.Next event in the championships is the Brecon 10 in a fortnight.
