Jezza to run in a 10km race!!

Yes Dear Reader you heard it here first, I am indeed running in a 10km race this Saturday but you will be happy to hear as a pacer. The race is in aid of the National Osteoporosis Society

I hear a few gasps of relief from some of you that I would do such a "short" race but I have been toying with the idea of doing one for a long time as a competitor to see what I could do without any training for the distance which is a totally different technique so pacing will do for the moment.

The Race

The event is in Hyde Park, London and I meet the event organisers at about 9.00am on Saturday to be the 55 minute pacer. I am really looking forward the job but still a little perturbed at running at that pace as it is well within my comfort zone and I will have to keep my whits about me so I don't zoom off. My plan is to do it as comfortably as possible but aim to get to the 9km mark just a little earlier than 49:30 and start to encourage overtaking so that people can get a PB if possible or at least beat the 55 minute barrier


  1. That is awesome! I've done plenty 10km races but the last few years I don't any more. I did one last year though. Pacing is awesome, enjoy!

  2. Hope you have a good run, that pace should be easy for you !

    1. Thanks Andrew...I hope your ankle is getting better

  3. Yes, much better and new PB for 10K today ! so well pleased.
