The Ranelagh Harriers’ Richmond 10k

Is there a better way to follow up a hot and hilly half marathon than with a fast and flat 10k?

Yes.  With a leisurely bike ride into Ham to watch other people run a fast and flat 10k.

The route is a double lollipop, which includes a section of the Kingston parkrun.  I found a likely looking bench and waited for the runners.  Familiar faces came thick and fast.  Martin (Clapham Chasers) was the first, Rosemary (Collingwood AC) was the last, and in between were Windmilers and parkrunners galore.

If I weren’t too scared to sign up for 10k races (they always turn up in my training plan as “All Out” efforts, and 60 mins of “All Out” is hard!), I’d definitely be adding this to my To Do list.

Especially now I know that all finishers receive a mug, a banana and a bar of chocolate.
