Clapham Common 10k

Race Date: Saturday, 05/12/2020
Race Distance: 10 Km

A real race – and lovely to run around Clapham Common on a chilly but sunny morning. We started off in groups of four, to allow for social distancing, which makes it hard to tell how you are doing in relation to anyone else - it's more like going for a run on your own. Sub-50 minute runners started at 9am and the rest at 10am so things never felt too busy, including the loo queues. The course was four laps, with some stretches a bit muddy and others windy but the part I liked the least was the deep gravel just before the finish - it's nice to end with a sprint rather than an ungainly stagger. Still, it's another colourful medal to add to the collection. I think I was the only Windmiler in the 10k, which seems strange at such a local event, but there may have been some in the (later) 5k. Thanks, Runthrough, for getting events going again.
