Please post details of any races for the race report no later than 7pm. Thanks. :+1:
Ellie and I went to Stevenage for the Decathlon Sports Series 5k this morning. The route took you up from Asda car park towards Fairlands Valley Park (under multiple underpasses on the way) then a loop around the park and back down to Asda car park. Ellie and I ran together and kept a strong and steady pace throughout whilst enjoying the slight drizzle in the air to keep us cool. We finished just inside in the top 10 where I came in first lady and Ellie a very close second lady, with times both under 25 minutes (the course was 5.3k not 5k in the end!)
For a free event this was well run with everyone racing getting the neon series tshirt to run in, with water, goody bag and medal at the end. There were people of all ages and other squirrels there too, we even saw a dog in it’s event top being pushed in a pushchair!
Here are some results for a few of us running this weekend it's been a fantastic weekend for PBs!!!
