5 July 2015 – Chesterfield Spire 10

Stuart Gregory made his way to Chesterfield for the Spire 10 mile road race. The race takes in around 776 feet of ascent mostly in the first five mile with a slight to modest incline over the final mile. Stuart started the race very well and found himself ahead of last years times over the first five miles, unfortunately this went to pot over the 3.5 mile down hill section of the course coming off of old Brampton, as his pace was slightly slower than 2014.  At mile 9 it was still looking very close as to whether Stuart would beat his course PB and as the final modest climb back to Holmbrook Park began his pace slowed slightly as he crossed the finish line in 1hr 46m 04s, 2m 36s slower than his time from 2014.
