  Syke Reservoir Race

aka Brown House Wham Reservoir Race
Accurate 5km with 400ft ascent
27th May 2010

Race HQ and start line, The Red Lion



This is a tough little cookie, probably one of the the hardest 5k's in the North West.

The race starts outside the Red Lion, with the first 1/3 mile climbing 200ft.  Then its right and down to the path to the ressie, two laps round, then back up the same path. Its a mighty long slog on the way back.   Then it's a fast descent to the finish line, a little higher than the start line.

Expect this to take about 90 - 120 sec per 20min longer than your usual 5K.  The distance is accurate.

In the first two times this race took place only 20 then 23 turned up.  This was a little disappointing, but it did mean the prizes were easier to win and a top 10 finish was achievable.
