Start of run: 12 noon Saturday 22 May 1999.
The run got off to a cracking start. The first runner, Paul Seddon,
was lapping the circuit in 19 minutes i.e. a speed of 7.6 miles/hour
OR, to put it another way, equivalent to a 3.75 hour marathon!
The runners, roughly in running order were:
Also: Crystal Palace Fun Runners
Dulwich Park Runners
other people & groups
Caroline Blake (our marathon runner) did 12 circuits which is
28.8miles - slightly longer than a full marathon. There were others
who came quite close to this; John Turner, Paul Seddon... the run was
never a race and a lot of fun was had by all.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who took part (I hope I
haven't missed anyone) - I calculated that they ran the equivalent of
a London to Manchester journey in "people-miles".
