Last year our ladies won silver medals at W55 but we'd hope to do even better this year and to field some teams from other categories. If you might be available to run a leg (perhaps in a different age category) then please register your interest via this event registration facility. Teams will be selected to be as competitive as possible but the team managers will also shuffle where possible to try and give everyone a run. Men with an afternoon start may even want to indulge in some ParkRun tourism in the morning before supporting our ladies!
Please note that although the event is not until 16th May registration closes 16th April so don't delay.
These places are free to members and usually provide access to some of the front pens and athlete facilities reserved for club runners. This is a fantastic opportunity to race near the front of a large field and blast past some of London's iconic landmarks without the pain of doing a full marathon.
This event serves as the EA 10k championships for 2015 so promises a quality field and is an event that we want to do well in. The ballot process will therefore favour the faster runners but will include some places available to all under general ballot.
