Just back. Brilliant event. Loved the flatness. Great organisation but the route would have been better reversed so the runners get a big long view of the olympic stadium coming towards them from the green way.

Well done Johnny

One of the lead bike riders fell of at just after 1k.

Agreed really good race, lookd for the "hand" Tracey but didn't see you.

Got a PB though so happy with day.

Congratulations on your PB Flat Footed. My mother-in-law was on the last wave, so had to wait a long time for her, but she wasn't last.

I saw the big yellow hand and it made me giggle!

Thanks Caitlin  How did your race go?

Good thanks Tracey - new PB of 1.02.50 for me.  It was great that there were some supporters along the route on such a cold day.  I hope your mother in law got on okay!

Caitlin - my mother in law did it in 1:11:03. Think she is still on a bit of a high as she went back to the park.  Got it was cold out there today.

Results out now. I did mine in 57 mins 37 secs. New PB for me. I thought the first K was very narrow, and could have led to fallers, but enjoyed it. very cold at the start, but the sun came out mid-race. Looking forward to the newham Classic on April 17th or 18th.

Cheers DJ great time 

48.38 a new PB for me as well!!

I thought the 1k was narrow, so glad that you were set of in waves. I had to move out of your way on the pavement. One lead cyclist entertain me and my son by falling of his bike, now that could have been a disaster for your runners. The medal looked very nice for a 10k and the security on the baggage was good.

Great event despite the bitterly cold wind, organisation superb and the warm-up really did warm us up. Marshalls were very encouraging and even the work men/security men at the Stadium were cheering us on. Good medal and eco friendly goodie bag. All in all a good day out and a chance to see another part of London. Would reccommend everyone to do this, beginner friendly and PB friendly.

security on the baggage was good?!  - there was NO security at all at the beginning - you just left your bag wherever you fancied and there were no checks on who went in or out of the area/ who took what bag in or out.

at the end they did try to make sure your running number matched the label on the bag but it was all a bit late by then? would have been VERY easy to steal something.

Hi Glad Rags, I didn't mean the security at the baggage drop !! I meant the security men at the Stadium !!! I do agree with you on the security of the bags though, they were very thorough though, at the end when we were hands were so cold I had trouble picking my own bag up never mind anyone else's !!!!!!!

Does anyone know if there are any photos of the event uploaded anywhere ?
