Leatherhead Fire Station 10K
|Date:||08th Nov 2009|
The Leatherhead Fire Station 10K is organised by Red Watch of Leatherhead Fire Station to raise money for a local charity.
The race is reasonably flat for the first 1.5K but then during the course of about 2.5K there is a gentle climb from 50m to 120m. Over the next 2K, you lose all that height and the remaining 4K is flat. About 2.5K is off-road on gravel tracks through a wooded area called Norbury Park, about 3K is on a cycle path whereas the rest of the course is on roads.
Presumably because the race was being timed by chips, the results were being put up almost immediately.
As the start and finish was at the Fire Station, I was amused to see the fire engines being moved several times during the course of the morning out of the way of the runners presumably just in case they had to attend a fire.
The weather was good, scenery was good, the signage was good, the organisation was good, the post-race refreshments were good: I'll be back next year.
