Bernouville, Normandy 10k Racewalk, 29 April.
Time :  77 min, 36 sec (12th approx of 22)
Bernouville, a village to the East of Rouen and home to about 300 residents and a racewalking club of 10 years standing, hosted the Normandy 20k and 50k championships alongside a local 10k. The total turnout for the full event was about 70 walkers, ranging from internationals from Tunisia and Turkey to local enthusiasts for whom this is the annual equivalent of a village fun-run. Hence a cheerful, low-key event with a refreshing disregard for age-groups (apart from junior ones), and great hospitality including a three course meal afterwards. Not exactly a 'PB' course, with each of the 2k loops (of which the 50k fanatics had to complete 25) starting with a steady long climb into a headwind with driving rain.
Next racewalk? Hopefully something a bit nearer home.
