Another month meant yet another Run Richmond Park for The Fix Team and all it's runners. This Saturday it was Race number eleven.
As all our runners came down to register we enjoyed a relatively warm start to the day for the time of year which was great. We spoke to some local runners who were super keen to keep up their regular attendance over the Winter months and also some not so local people who were in London for the weekend and fancied maintaining their fitness goals. We even heard a few mention it was their first ever running event so BIG shout out to the newbies.
The atmosphere began to build as the participants mingled, chatted and began to make friends with fellow runners, some taking on the 1 lap (5KM) but most setting out to compete 2 laps (10KM). In usual fashion we rounded up all our participants and set our 5K runners off at 10am and 10k runners just 10 minutes after! With the course signed and marshalled all was left to do was RUN.
The rain that looked likely to pass did no such thing as we we began to witness a full-on downpour half-way through the event which set the stage at the finish line! However a little bit of wet weather has never silenced us nor has it slowed us or our challengers down and this race was no acception. Joined by many spectators, we screamed and cheered for every last person over the line. We even had a over the line proposal to top off an amazing day... she said YES!
We had trophies, medals, water and sweets for all crossing the line, plus our Results Base team on cue so all the runners could see what their overall time was.
Massive CONGRATS to our winners:
