RunThrough Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix

Race Date: Sunday, 26/05/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

The first running of this new RunThrough event on the Mercedes-Benz motor circuit in Weybridge. I did question that it was only a single lap for a 5K until we started and I realised it was a typical RunThrough course making maximum use of the space and seeing runners in every direction you looked. 5K, 10K and Half Marathon on the track at the same time (different start times). I really liked it and is certainly a fast course (wind could be a factor as it's very exposed). Lynn was set a target time of exactly 61 minutes, to run 5K, post race socialising and collecting goodies and then walk the mile to Weybridge station to travel upto Green Park for the Westminster Mile. 5K was the only distance that enabled us to get to Green Park in time for our mile run. Achieved with seconds to spare. Lynn thoroughly enjoyed running with Guy today, who did a great job to make sure her pace kept on target for Green Park! I on the other hand was less organised and on boarding the train realised I'd lost my phone post race. After the Westminster Mile it was answered; it was the RunThrough technology expert who knew my name (we've exchanged e-mails before and he's great at resolving anything), so a trip via Twickenham and I was reunited with my phone.
