Statistically this trial is as useful as throwing a pair of dice. 15 athletes!

Once in the 1980s I was photographed wearing double denim, the shame, the shame.

On another note the Overton 5 started as an invitation International race with separate men's and ladies races; we had entrants from all over the world with runners from the old Czechoslovakia taking two days to get to Overton. 

The club still has links with, the now, Czech Republic racing over there every other year.

The Overton 5 is still, virtually, the same course since its inception, through the heart of the village, but it's now one race for men and women, open to all and is the opener for the Hampshire Road Race League.

Could possibly be good for an article?

Come to the Overton 5 Race in September and there are loads of adults doing the race whose parents did it when they were kids, in fact some of the parents are still doing it. We have old photos but you'll have to come down to Hampshire,

I'm afraid I'm not going to do all the work for you  


That's why you are paid!

Loads of running clubs have family members: dads, mums, daughters, sons running in the same race.

In fact I would imagine that a running club that didn't would be the exception.

Matt send me a PM and I'll send you the details of some of the runners at the AA.

I'm currently injured, just accepted that rest is not going to work and so off to physio on Monday.

Having looked at your Power of 10 rating we may not have a "pace to suit"

I work in Basing View and there are quite a few of us at the AA and at Eni that run regularly. 

There's no formal meet up group and it's a bit adhoc but I've been tempted to start something a bit more organised.

Paces to suit all. where do you work?

If its the "British 10k" you'll probably spend a significant time walking or at best slow jogging.

Certainly an unsung hero. If only every race would get officially measure.
