Forget Andy Murray’s historic Wimbledon triumph. Forget Lewis Hamilton’s prowess around Silverstone. There was only one monumental British sports event on Sunday, 10th July. Yes, seven runners stormed around the streets of London raising funds for the International Children’s Trust, battling with 11,285 other finishing runners at the British 10K London Run.
For a second year in a row, the clouds were gathering overhead for the race. Thankfully the rain stayed away until everyone was finished and stretching their legs. The crowds cheered and the bands played as the runners around the course that took in Westminster, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and the Embankment.
Monumental may be an exaggeration and the names Alice, Claudia, Lucy, Lydia, Olivia, David and Jeremy may not be on the tip of your tongues, but we are proud and thankful for their enthusiasm in running the 10km course around central London fundraising on our behalf.
While July 2017 may seem a long way away, if you are interested in running in next year’s race please get in contact with us.
