Newham 10k London Run 2010

Somewhat off message but I have just signed up on-line to the 2010 Newham 10k Run which is taking place on Sunday 7 March. This morning I had a glorious run locally in the sunshine and mud and this has inspired me to take part. There are only 3000 places and you can join up for £20 here. Below is part of the blurb.

Make history. Be part of the first run in the Olympic Park and soak up the delights of Stratford Park, West Ham Park, The Greenway and Stratford town centre whilst you’re at it

10km run starting and finishing next to Stratford Park on Sunday 7 March at 10:00

For runners of all abilities age 15 & over

Closing date midnight Sunday 14 February 2010

l'll be asking for sponsorship on behalf of:-
