HENRI LLOYD ABERSOCH 10K – Saturday 3rd June 2017.

The Henri Lloyd Abersoch 10K is firmly established as a favourite of many runners from around the UK. Both elite runners & beginners to the running scene relish the vast array of unique & satisfying elements that the Abersoch 10K has to offer.

Taking place in the very popular and picturesque surf village of Abersoch, North Wales, with its narrow streets of bustling café’s, pubs and trendy surf shops, the Henri Lloyd Abersoch 10K race kicks off by running through a street packed with spectators keen to support over a 1,000 runners and takes in some sensational scenery as it winds its way over challenging tracks and roads and up on to a spectacular viewpoint over Cardigan Bay, Bardsey Island and the dramatic Snowdonia mountain range. To ensure a spectacular end to this challenging race, worthy of its stunning backdrop, the 10K finishes on Abersoch’s main beach where runners have to negotiate the groynes, battle both hard and soft sand and dodge an ebbing tide, as you push yourself to a finish line with hoards of cheering spectators.

A professionally run race with a £1,000 prize fund and some nice product prizes. It includes bibtag timing technology, good marshaling, clear kilometer markers as well as prominent start & finish lines, drink station at 5km & the finish, medics & traffic management marshals, and a great after race party!

A rewarding race with stunning scenery and a fantastic atmosphere.

03. Plan your workout time — stick to it.

Now that I had the headphones on my head, I was finally ready to plug and play some music. I plugged the provided cable into the jack on the headphones and then the one on my iPhone 6. Then I called up Pandora. I tend to have a very eclectic music purview and have many stations set up for different moods. From John Williams to Fallout Boy, the sound quality of these headphones was remarkable. There is an amazing depth of sound and incredible highs and lows that make listening to music a truly breathtaking experience.

In order to test how voices sounded, and the overall art of sound mixing, I pulled up Netflix on my iPad Air 2 and watched a few minutes of a movie to hear all the nuances of the film. None of them were lost. In fact, I ended up hearing sounds that I hadn’t heard before. Echoes…birds chirping…wind blowing through trees…breathing of the characters…it was very impressive what the headphones ended up bringing out for me.

Distractions aside, there was no real rhyme or reason to my workflow. The not-so-fun (but necessary) stuff kept getting neglected.
