Massey Easter 5 – 05.04.2015

Lesley Pymm reports:  Where were you all?  There is usually a good turn out from BvH at this annual 5 miler, and the first race in the Warwickshire Road Race League.  I think I was the only one there, unless anyone was in mufty??

This is a potentially fast race that takes place (mainly) within the War Memorial Park in Coventry.  It was slightly different this year, with a small loop first and then two large laps.  This made it slightly longer – I made it almost 5.25 miles, but that was fine.

I was not going very well, I must admit!  I had run a 1/2M the week before and then did this wierd 4 hour walk event on the track at the Alexander Stadium on Wednesday (17.38 miles) so I was feeling a bit tired.  I think in the circumstances I did pretty well, although I was disappointed with my time of 48.24.

This is a good event – a useful goody bag – an actual bag that you can use, KitKat, banana, satsuma, mints and water.  There are also showers and a cafe.  Friendly event, well organised – what more can I say?
