Serpentine New Years Day 10k 2014 gallery now live

A fast start, running away from the Winter Wonderland
Happy New Year !!
OK if you were caught in the storms, floods, rain, wind or burst rivers, probably not that happy, but for a bunch of brave souls who weathered the storms and ran, marshaled and officiated at Hyde Park on New Years Day there seemed to be quite a lot of fun being had !

Race Gallery link
There's a quick selection of photos from the race at the bottom of this blog.

Current live galleries:
If you have not got some of your 2013 memories yet - then these galleries are still live - but they are going to be archived from the oldest first (at the bottom of the list), so don't miss out. Once they are archived we can only retrieve them with your race number and they will cost more - so get yours now !
Free download races are not free once they have been archived - so get those now too, in ten years time you will appreciate that you got them now when you could - don't regret it later !

more to follow...

A great win for Jamal in 34:20 in punishing conditions

39:40.8 for Elizabeth to win the ladies race

The joy of completing a 10k - whatever the weather

Sightseeing on your way round the course and taking photos, or just checking your friends race results, either way, phones can slow you down a bit on a race...

Good to see Peter running this year after two years of supporting at the finish

A Tom Baker Scarf was almost essential in the wet and windy weather

Getting the Mo-Bot done in style

Answering texts during a race is a bit much

Happy New Year ! Start on a high !

Crazy Happy New Year
A YMCA New Year !
Well done to the marshals, officials, and everyone from Serpentine who managed to make the event what it was, with 582 finishers in the atrocious weather conditions it was a better turn out than expected and everyone got round safely. Fortunately it wasn't too cold, but there was an incredible amount of rain. To put it in perspective we drove through 2 completely flooded roads on the way back - which had been dry on the way to the race.

This weekend around the country sees a lot of local county cross country championships - Sussex has been reassigned to Bexhill due to travelers on the grounds at Stanmer - so it's going to be a wet and windy race about the paths in the woods tomorrow. Hopefully that storm in the Atlantic will give us a bit of a rest before it sweeps in...

Happy New Year, I hope your training plans are starting to take shape and going to last well through into April at least ! Keep safe in the rain and floods.

Until next time
