I had never run this 10K before but was intrigued as to which '3 Bridges' it included. The start was at Salt Ayre Sports Centre, on the cycle track behind the club house. The weather threatened rain but stayed dry for the race, we even got some sunshine at some points. We set off, quite a crowded start but with the widening cycle path we were soon able to get into our pace. We ran the loop of the cycle track and then off out towards the Millennium Bridge (and water station number 1). We headed over the bridge and took a left turn towards Caton Road cycle track. A nice flat run along here soon ended when we were sent up the steps to the Lancaster Canal aqua-duct. The steps themselves did not feel too bad, but trying to pick up your pace again when on the canal path, legs wobbling, was tricky! Once they had stopped burning normal running resumed and we were soon marshalled off the canal bank onto the Halton Road.
