Rugged Radnage 10K
|Date:||21st Nov 2010|
In the announcements before the race, we were warned that the K markers might be inaccurately placed and the race might be a bit longer than 10K but my Garmin didn't bear either of these out. She also said there may be mud! Well there was a lot of mud, especially in the woods. There were also numerous large puddles on the tracks and the roads. About 2.5K is on tarmac with the rest on tracks (some rough) and footpaths. Quite a bit of the route is through woods. So there was lots of off-road with plenty of opportunities for falling over or twisting ankles!
Most people near to me walked the two killer hills: there was one at 4K and the other one was at the start of the last 1K.
There were lots of marshals: they were enthusiastic and well positioned.
Neville was 32 seconds off the 1st MV50: he was beaten by a local!
