The BRJ Race or Pace It 10K saw a small group of runners complete the distance.

The challenge was either to run the distance in the fastest time possible or as close to their predicted time.

The start was organised ensuring social distancing was maintained.

Dave Hudson was the first finisher in 33 minutes 16 seconds while James Orrell was second (36:49) and Alec Mitton third (45:46).
