I have some low res photos of last year loaded on my web site www.smithfamily.me.uk
This is one of the few running events where you can actually take the whole family, and let them have a go (2k for the kids). Seeing the kids faces when they get a medal just like mums or dads is a brilliant experiance. and because the kids enter and leave the main field the same way as the 10k many kids (OK the younger ones) think they do the same route - Sorry adults but you have to go do another 8k !!!!
The PSA always put on a great range of activities including bouncy castles, great catering, and of course the Bouncy Castle, although I am told that 10k's are a little big to have a go !
Orpington is just 15 minutes by train from London Bridge and under 2 miles from Junction 4.
I wouldn't recomend sex in the middle of the night before a race... I found doing so did calm my nerves, but on the other side I was knackered the following morning.... maybe I should have stuck with just the once before bed rather than....
Once point about the article
male athletes were made to run on a treadmill 12 hours after having had sex. They showed no decline in stamina, or mental and physical performance
12 Hours is that 12 hours on a treadmill or 12 hours after sex ?
Duckinator, I think you should have kept that quiet, don't want the Mrs to come back and tell you it works!
Another Fantastic year with a good turnout despite a slow start we saw a huge on the day entry.
There were 372 finishers in the Adults 10k with the fastest time being achieved by Ian Firth of Blackheath & Bromley Harriers completing the 10k in 36 minutes and 24 seconds. The first lady was Andrea Pickup also of Blackheath & Bromley Harriers in 41 minutes 8 seconds.
