This was a small 5k along the riverside pathway that I ran last Saturday and actually my first ever 5k – there are very few of them around here. The race was also free! all you had to do was register online and pitch up on time … no numbers or prizes.
The field was pretty small with about 1000 runners or a little less and mostly just recreational joggers. My time was good enough to win … obviously all the serious runners stayed home due to the lack of prize money!
