RunThrough Battersea Park 10k

Race Date: Saturday, 15/02/2020
Race Distance: 10 Km

For the second weekend running I’ve been lucky with the weather, with Storm Ciara arriving shortly after last week’s cross country and Storm Dennis narrowly avoiding this morning’s (now monthly) RunThrough 5 & 10K event in Battersea Park. If the race had been just an hour or so later, conditions would have been very different. As it was we had a slight breeze, dry and a pleasant temperature. I had unfinished business with this flat course after a disappointing run here last summer when the heat got the better of me. Today was different and with the help of some recent cross country training I was rewarded with a PB. Well done to David who finished strongly with his trademark sprint to the tunnel – his 4th 10K race in a week! Apologies if I have missed off any other Windmilers who may have been there. Many thanks to RunThrough who delivered another well organised event of nearly 600 runners (and another 140 running the 5K event).
