Perfect for a pb
Good for beginners
This was a pleasant 10K. Battersea Park is flat as a pancake, and running along wide paths/roads makes it easy to go for a PB. The organisers delayed the 10K start time slightly to allow the 5K runners to start-- this should have been built into the advertised start time instead-- but otherwise the event was organised well. I especially appreciate that it didn't feel suffocatingly crowded at the start! Note that faster 10K runners will have a lot of 5K runners to pass, but the wide paths make this pretty easy.
