It is amazing how many runners come out of the woodwork when a race is included in the Road Running Championships! People like Kenny Lowies for example, who tried to remove my shorts just before the off. The Silverstone 10k is simply two laps of the “old circuit”, starting on the grid and finishing in the pit lane. It is a very popular race and very well organised. I entered on the night and due to the A34 (again) arrived half an hour before the start and within 5 minutes had a number and a chip. All finishers got a technical t-shirt too, which is always a bonus.
This is normally a proper PB course – but it does suffer if the wind is up, which it was this evening. We also had a short sharp shower as everyone was waiting for the gun to be fired. Otherwise conditions were good, so please add any PBs. There was a fine showing from the Meadowcroft family, but it looks like dad picked up an injury.
