recommend me a half marathon or 10 mile race

I'm looking for a 10 mile race or half marathon to end my 'season'. Mid October would be ideal. I'm based in the north but willing to travel a little way for a good race. North, North east, North West or Midlands. Scotland too. Please recommend me a race. Thanks. I'm slow so nothing too competitive!

The Worksop Halloween Half is fantastic. End of October rather than mid Oct, but one of my favourite halves ever (and I've done lots!)
Picturesque course through National Trust's Clumber Park, a spooky technical T shirt for all finishers, and - as it's organised by a running club rather than Morrisons, Bupa etc - it's cheap to enter.
Don't be put off by it being running club organised though - there's people of all abilities run it, and several in fancy dress. Fab day out.

York ten mile, it's on Sunday 11 October. Part of the marathon so will be amazing atmosphere. You can't beat running past the Minster! All hotels full though so I'm staying in an air bnb.

Thanks very much. I'm thinking York or worksop. Maybe both!
Runningupthathill82 · 20/09/2015 13:32
Do both!! A 10-miler two weeks before a half is perfect timing.

Ooh I fancy the York one. Maybe next year though as Im not up to 10 miles just yet. I wish I had done a 10 mile before I did my half early last year. I might have trained a bit better then and not had to take some time out due to injury.

I've just signed up for York. Thanks everyone. I'll think about Worksop nearer the time.

Good luck for York! If you do fancy Worksop I'd check it out soon though, think it usually sells out .
