Run Reigate

Race Date: Sunday, 15/09/2019
Race Distance: 10 Km

Portable Toilets are a good place to meet somebody new! Whilst queuing for the toilets at Shoreditch (on the day England won the World Cup) Lynn and her friend Sarah were offered free entry to this race. I decided to tag along; paying of course. Sarah then won two free entries to a pre and post race VIP section so she and Lynn had post race Prosecco and snacks whilst I sat the other side of the fence with a Stella I had to pay for. 3,000 runners across Half, 10K and 5K distances with 1,140 in the 10K. The trophies were presented by last years Half Marathon winner Kevin Quinn who set a course record of 1:08:20 having had heart surgery less than two years previously. Quite an undulating course, personally it was harder than Greenwich yesterday.
