Race Report - The Run Through Olympic Park Christmas 10k

RUN THROUGH Olympic Park 10k

Terrain: Road, Flat

Saturday night brought billowing storms of icy rain to Walthamstow. Despite obsessively checking the forecast and being told Sunday morning would be clear but cold, I didn't believe it. So I pulled my usual trick of over preparing and packing too much kit. Although I did only bring one pair of running shoes in the end.

As it turned out the forecast was right and the day was clear. A short tube journey from Snaresbrooke to Stratford. A low winter sunlight bouncing off the Westfield glass as I walk towards the Timber Lodge and after meeting up realise that the race is on the other side of the park.
