Wimbledon 10k photos now online

In near perfect conditions the Wimbledon Audi 10k took place yesterday.
You could tell it wasn't june as there were no strawberries or cream on sale, no green blazers with purple trim and the sun was out.

With hardly a hint of wind the race wound it's way from the Rugby club east towards the Main Station and then up the big bad hill towards the village. Round the south bit of the common and the pond, and then back down the long hill going west and back into the finish. The route is here - but it doesn't really show that you get to run right through the middle of wimbledon village high street !


The leader came through the common at quite some speed:

The weather on the common was rather nice and good for a quick drink:


This chap won - Hassin Raidi from Belgrave - don't feel too bad about losing to him , he came 9th at the Hastings Half Marathon last week against an international field and 3837 other people...


Just under a thousand managed to take part making it one of the larger 10ks in the area on the lead up to the london marathon at the end of april.
