Race Walk – Ilford Open 10K

Date: 21st Dec 2003
Distance: 10K
Type: Road
Comments: Nice, but hilly, semi-rural course on the outskirts of NE London - from Chigwell Row to Lambourne End, three circuits of Lambourne End, and back to Chigwell Row. I picked this race because I know I'm faster than the guy who won it last year, but as first an African Games gold medallist and then a Commonwealth Games competitor, plus various other classy contenders, appeared at the start I knew I wasn't going to win. But I picked up a pot for '1st veteran' (the real first veteran getting a vastly inferior trophy for being 3rd man overall) and there was a highly recommendable after-race pub, the 'Two Brewers' in Chigwell Row.
