My local Brampton to Carlisle road race, which is ran by the Border a Harriers, claims to be the oldest 10 mile road race in the United Kingdom. Which sounds impressive, but is quite low key and very no frills. 2013 was the sixty second running of the race and I hope it continues for many years as I love it!

Brampton Carlisle is a quick course too. Great pb potential ;-)

Balloch to Clydebank has been going since 1928. Originally a 12 mile race it was extended to a half marathon in 2000 and has plenty of pb potential.

Maidenhead Easter 10 will be run for the 61st time this year. Another good one for a PB attempt.

Thanks guys, A couple in the south I over looked and some further afield that would require some forethought and planning.
2 that I do, but didnt mention before the Southern Counties and English national CC Champs, especially when on the classic Parliament Hill Fields in London.
