Carolyn Davies in Trafalgar Square Carolyn Davies of Dumfries Harriers was once again in action last weekend as she successfully completed her third race (in addition to park runs) this season.
The Cancer Research London Winter Run 10k took place on closed roads through central London.
It started in Trafalgar Square and took in many of London’s iconic sights including Strand, Royal Courts of Justice and St Paul’s Cathedral before finishing close to Downing Street. It was a flat route but the repeated twists and loop-backs of the course made it challenging.
Carolyn joined the 20,000 strong field on a cold but sunny morning and was using this event as an opportunity to meet up with her online running friends which they do on an annual basis.
This was Carolyn’s third time running the race so she was no stranger to the course. The volume of competitors made navigating the start line quite difficult and Carolyn narrowly missed out on a PB when she crossed the finish line in 56 minutes 46 seconds. Nevertheless she enjoyed the experience and now looks forward to her next race, Glentress Half Marathon later this month.
