Sri Chinmoy 10k (30 Jul 2005)

Anthony Stranger Jones 1st V60 and 11th overall and Phil Kelvin 1st FV50.

Anthony Stranger-Jones comments "The early start (8 a.m. on a Saturday) did not prevent a good turnout on this familiar course, which consists of 3.2/3 laps of the outer circuit of Battersea Park. As others have commented for
previous races, this is a friendly race with many trophies on offer - most of the Serpies present ended up with one!

Congratulations to Victoria Carter who was second lady.

The Sri Chinmoy races in Battersea Park are on a fast flat course. While there is no chip timing, on Saturday I crossed the start line in about 2 seconds. There was almost no congestion. Entry on the day is £9. Bananas, cereal bars, water, sports drink (orange squash?) and socks were given out at the end to finishers.

The course has changed since last year and the race now goes through the central avenue and bandstand rather than right round the park. While I don't mind having more laps unfortunately the new course has two sharp corners. Run and Become will be considering opinions on the new course at the end of this years series..

However this is still a fast course (I got a PB), very good value, well organised and has cheerful encouraging marshals. Highly recommended.
