Serpie Planner - event reports

Croydon 10k (03 Apr 2005)

A popular South London race, organised by Croydon
Harriers, that took place in optimal temperatures with
pleasant sunshine.
The race took runners around the residential parts of
South Croydon near Lloyd Park. The various hills and
drags made it quite challenging at times and far from
being a pb course.
Facilities were good - changing/shower facilities at
the nearby football club, parking, pre-race aerobics
warm-up session, free massage, commentator.
This race has attracted internationals in the past
like Annie Emmerson and Lee Troop.

is an exceptionally well organised small race with chip timing. It definitely goes down as an undulating course, half alongside busy roads and half on much quieter residential roads. The weather was excellent - and they even stop the trams for you at the end if one turns up at the wrong time!
