It was a lovely, warm day for the 26th Hook Fun Run and Road Races in Hampshire with a record 1250 finishers over all the races. The race HQ was at the Community Centre at Hartletts Park in the heart of Hook. The event incorporated children’s races as well as 10k and 10 mile road runs and was organised by and for the community, raising money for local charities and community organisations.
I ran the 10 mile undulating race which was a lap of the park and the town of Hook before the course went along the Reading Road north to the rural village of Rotherwick. The route then turned south towards Newnham and then onto the A30 London Road, through the centre of Hook before entering Hartletts Park to the finish. I finished in a time of 1:23:31.
