London Chest Hospital 10K



  • Patrick, ally I will at the back too so perhaps we will see each other there
  • just back from a 30 min run and feel ok,so i must be doing something right......
  • Morning all,gonna try the route out tomorrow round victoria park tomorrow morning just to get a feel for it,as just live round the corner.......
  • Go for it Patrick. You'll love it :)
  • Hope so just printed the route out and it seems straight forward, so i will give it a go then i will know what sort of time i am looking at....and if go well then i will register for july...
  • Patrick

    Where did you get the route from as it would be good to know where I,m running to and from, Also well done on the 30 mins
  • Hi supergran copy and paste this link below

    you will see victoria park and the red line going round it.....
  • Morning ,
    Can anyone advise me how long i need to rest for as i have injuried my knee.I have pain at the front of the knee,is this due to doing to much milage over a week.
  • hi patrick - try the injury thread, you might have more luck.
    i've just signed up for this one - my first 10k. yikes!
  • Hi - I'm a Victoria Park Harrier so will be entering in this event.

    I doubt that we'll be following the route that you mention above. The 'lap' is more likely to be from the club house (put E9 5EG into streetmap) around the loop at the north side of the park, then down the annex which goes down the middle of the park, then back up along the path which runs parallel to the Hertford Union Canal. The lap is about 2 miles according to my GPS.

    For those who live around Victoria Park and are looking for people to train with, I'd highly recommend coming along to the club - the website is - all abilities are very welcome.

    Right, I've signed up for this one (even if it is two days after the London social!!)

  • OY, JEJ!! Moved from Greenwich Park to Vicky Park? What happened there then?

    Sezz, see you there, girl!
  • Hope it's not too hot, 10k is a challenge in the heat.
  • 10K is a challenge anytime for me who's only run one once before and I've had quite a long lay off due to ill health. but hey ho off I go, perhaps if I start now I'll finish on the 31st.
  • Supergran, hope you feel much better now? The early start is a cunning idea, I expect at least a top three finish.
  • Doing this one as well now. Can't wait to meet some forumites in the flesh. ai'll be pootling around in about an hour I reckon!

  • Hi All,
    A newby to this great website here and am looking for some advice, not another one! ;o)

    I've completed a couple of 10k's before, most recently the Help a London Child one in Hyde Park last month with a time of 58 mins.

    Since then I've only done a couple of practise runs, 30 mins or thereabouts so am wondering if I have had enough practise if I am to enter the Chest Hospital run?

    I'm doing the windsor half marathon in september and am starting to worry about the distance already!

    Hi W14 - if you've completed a couple of 10ks before then I'm sure you'll have no probs, esp as your time was 58 mins (better than my PB).

    Most of my training runs are only 30 - 40 mins. If you get in a few more training runs before the 31st, you'll be fine.


  • Cheers Sezz, I'd better apply online soonish.

    Only problem is a major drink-up on Friday 29th so better get plenty of agua in before and afterwards to dilute the Guinness!
  • was going to enter but not trained in six weeks due to bad knee....its seems ok but i know i will not be ready for it...
  • Hoopy

    QPR fan by any chance? If so let us know and we'll go round together.

  • SezzSezz ✭✭✭
    Yep, tis the London social for me too on 29th. But I'm not missing the social just for a race. Pah!

  • W14 58MINS flipping eck!!! I'll be lucky with 1hr 58mins. Don't forget though it could be very hot as it starts at 11.30. I think you'll be OK as I only run 30-45mins to. Enjoy the drinkie poos but as you say just drinks lots of water.
  • Thats it sezz have a beer after!!
  • i was going to organise a cocktail night on 29th but couldn't face spending the day before the race hungover!!

    i've only done one 10k before (last year's LCH race) and am really hoping to beat my time so please look out for me (no 40) and shout at me if i look like i'm slacking!! did it in 61:03 last time. reckon i could get under 59 - hopefully!
  • :o)) Supergran

    I think 11.30 start isn't too bad,will just have to run faster to beat the heat! (I wish)

    Peter - Ahah! A fellow R? You from the rivals board?

    Sezz - No cheating on the shandies! ;o))
  • 11.30 is just in time to catch the real heat at noon. I'll be with a two-litre bottle on each shoulder.
  • Yep. Peterjward2000 on there. Lots of you guys sponsored me to run the Brit 10k for Royal Marsden. Had to leave is getting a bit heavy over there at the moment. The e-mail I had from my electronic entry says 10am. Hopefully this will be clarified should I get anything in the post!

    Travelling from the Bush for this one as well. Nice trip to Bethnal Green.

  • Sorry for the poor punctuation, the boss was on the prowl and he's getting better at it.
  • Peter, 3k fun run and 1 mile junior before main event at 11.30 so my info says
