The sixth annual ISEH 5K and 10K run took place in London's beautiful Regent's Park on Sunday 24 June in glorious sunshine.
The 2018 event saw yet again an
increase of entries by 25% compared to 2017 with just under 500 people
registered with really growing numbers entering the ISEH 2.5K for those
new to running or simply wishing to walk which again proved a successful
entry point event.
We were delighted to have double
Olympian Joslyn Hoyte-Smith in attendance who warmed up the competitors
before officially starting the race as well as congratulating the
runners as they finished.
The run was a licensed chip timed
event and attracted both competitive runners and people who wanted to
use the race to test their exercise regimes and become more active
something which we are passionate about here at the ISEH.
Runners were supported around the
course by enthusiastic marshals and at the end of the race were greeted
with a smiley face, a medal and some refreshments.
There were prizes for the first three
finishers (male and female) in the both the 5K and 10K races.
Congratulations to Grzegorz Opial and Melissah Gibson who came 1st (male
and female) in the 10k and each won a free CPEX fitness test at the
ISEH and to Jacob Pickle and Nicole Lane who came 1st (male and female)
in the 5K.
