D-Day 10k, Portsmouth – 5 June 2016

The D-Day 10k is organised by City of Portsmouth AC and is now in its 27th year, having initially started to commemorate D-Day so it is held as close to 6th June as possible.

This was a chip timed event and the Race HQ was at the Lakeside North Harbour (near Portsmouth) which was very close to the start and finish of the race.  The race is very friendly and traffic-free and the course was flat, run around the complex and along firm paths.  Although the race is competitive as it is part of the Hampshire Road Race League and attracts many club runners, it was also suitable for all abilities and first-timers are made welcome. 522 competitors finished the race and I finished in a time of 51:37 on a very hot day.

Best wishes,


Julie D-day
