My First 10K Ever!
The infamous hills will forever be seared into my memory when I look at my medal (which design is beautiful by the way). Uphill was too long for me to run up, so assigned it my walking time. Downhill was hard on the knees but got a considerable amount of momentum from it.
Organisers were friendly, welcoming, and had good energy. I attended by myself and did not feel odd, so if you're worried about doing one by yourself don't be. Good music and good energy all around.
The museum and observatory and park in general is a gorgeous scenery to keep you distracted from the pain or fatigue.
The Hills are Alive !
The laws of physic's state that what goes up must come down and vice versa. I’d enjoyed the downhill sprint but what followed was The Avenue – the main hill in Greenwich Park. It’s not too steep but it feels quite long.
The team organize this very well There are no goodie bags but you get a unique medal, flapjacks, bananas, bottles of water and plenty of support staff. I would recommend their races if you have a spare weekend. I'll be doing their run at Victoria Park, (7/9/19)
Would I run t Greenwich again? No, I am done with those hills for while. but never say never .
Would I recommend it? Absolutely
