Stifling heat and a flattish (i.e. undulating) out-and-back course on quiet country roads. Stunning setting at Pinewood Preparatory School for the race HQ, with excellent car parking right by the start and finish. Great views of Swindon in the distance. Congratulations to Mark on an excellent run. Annoyingly I was felled by cramp at 9K and lost time but still placed well in my age group as few other oldies were stupid enough to run in such heat.
