Disclaimer: I was gifted the place to this race and the top I wore to run in came from a competition win.
Yesterday I made the trip to Dorney Lake in Windsor for the Run Through UK Dorney Lake 5km. For those of you familiar with my insta running page, you'll know I love the Run Through events. They are so laid back and there is never a sense of pressure. They are all about having fun and enjoying the running.
Dorney Lake is a great venue for a 5km. It's pretty much completely flat and is a single 5km loop. I wasn't out for a spectacular time but I imagine if I was, this would be a pretty good course to try and achieve it.
I'm not convinced it would be quite as much fun for a half marathon, given it would be 4 loops of the same thing but I suppose at least you know what's coming up!
