I've done a couple in the War Memorial Park, Coventry. Both did multiple laps, basically round the perimeter. It's a fairly flat course and quite quick as long as they don't take you off the paths. I did one in March 2012 organised by Help The Aged which was really good. The other in November 2011 which was a bit dodgy.
Ive just been down to the war memorial park and run the same route as the weekly 5k park run, but ran it twice (4 times through the park)
timed myself and achieved a time of 49:22 for a 10k run, is this a good time or is this a slow pace ???
that is a very good time for a first 10k !!!!!
Yeah thanks Peter, I have been talking to a few people today etc and most (not all) have said it is a fairly good time. I have visions (nightmares) that im gonna turn up for the race and end up coming in last.lol
I have now registered to run the Coventry memorial 10k run on November 18th so Im going to get as many training sessions in as possible so I can improve on todays time.
it'll be 2, 2 1/2 or 3 laps of the outer perimmeter paths - the amount of laps would depend on the route thats picked for the distance
quite safe and a good event
It's a very scenic run, completely off road and with good facilities. There were a few problems with the finish last year, which was on one of the main paths through the park and not well marked. You had to fight your way through grannies/dogs/pushchairs in the last 100m. Hopefully the organisers will have taken feedback about this on board.
does anyone know if they use chip timing for this event? Thanks
It wasn't chip timed last year.
