A fun race to do! It was quite cold, but all volunteers were quite supportive and cheerful.

Setting out on a cold, misty morning I decided to take the underground to Stratford station. From there its about a 20 min walk to the starting line. Prepare yourself for at least 30 mins if you are not a fast walker. It would help if the walk crossing from Westfield could be sign posted. Collecting our numbers were quick and we got a Santa hat with our numbers. Bag storage was good and we had a pre race warm up. The event was well organised. Thank you to the Marshalls for their help.
