Thames Path 100 miles

Race Date: Saturday, 08/05/2021
Race Distance: 100 Miles

One Windmiler ( who shall remain anonymous ) advised me to aim for a strong sub-36min first 10k, then suggested that all I needed to do was simply hang on for the next 150km. I decided against this advice. I felt it best to treat this monster distance with the respect it so rightly deserves. After a long period of uncertainty the 2021 Centurion series of 100 milers kicked off with the TP 100, starting in Richmond and winding along the Thames to Oxford. This event has run for a number of years, and even with the challenges of COVID, the organisation was exceptional, aid stations well stocked and the volunteers enthusiastic (truly, these guys are heroes!!!!!) . A tough headwind and early rain made for some tough conditions in the morning but as the day progressed and night drew in the weather slowly eased. Apologies if other Windmilers ran this, the results page doesn't include clubs so if you ran it, add yourself because you absolutely deserve it!!!!!!
