Report

Victoria Park Open 5 mile championships of today (Saturday 22 March) was run in 29mph winds, rain, sunshine and sleet, so times weren't pb-level, but it was a class race with the top 3 male prizes and top female prize (cash awards) being taken by Africans. Despite the weather - an exogenous factor - as always with races organised by Victoria Park Harriers, the organisation was superb: accurate mile-markers, excellent marshalling and timing, cosy changing facilties, bag storage and yummy home-made refreshments after the race. Race results were out quickly too. And you can tell it was a class race: there was no water station (but then if you need one in a 5-mile race, in those conditions, I wonder whether you should be running at all)!

I did 35:47 and won 1st W50 trophy. But I wasn't the fastest Serpie Level 3 coach there today.
