Richmond Half and 10k

26.2 gathered this morning for Richmond Half and 10k.

IMG-20160403-WA0000

Heading out from Old Deer park on familiar routes along the towpath from Kew to Ham (and almost to the Hawker centre). The course is a mixture of Thames Towpath Ten, Richmond 10k, Cabbage Patch 10, Kingston Parkrun and many other local races. Scenic and flat are probably a good summary.

Two highlighted performances included a 2 minute PB Dennis Brandrick and a first time 10k for one of our Zero2Hero regulars Lee Hilton.

From a personal perspective I thought the race was torture. I was in the just under 2 hour 26.2 group that formed on the finish line (I got slower, they paced well). No idea how I ran 6 minutes faster just two weeks ago. Worth it for the medal, T-shirt and sense of well being at least. I am yet to be convinced by the cucumber and mint flavoured water or Tamari Toasted Soya beans in the organic goody bag.

As always, well done to all participants and thank you to the 26.2 supporters out on the course.
