London 10K

Ruth Conquest completed her first event since the London Marathon last bank holiday Monday, by making the trip down to London again for the Bupa 10,000m. It uses much of the last 3 miles of the marathon route. Having had a day she'd like to forget at the marathon, Ruth had a much more successful trip this time around. She has come a long way from being unable to run at all a couple of years ago and completed her first ever 10K in 69:37 with an even split of 34:34 at 5K. This was quicker than she had dared hope and now has her sights set on breaking the hour mark.
