The night had finally come around. After 5 weeks of training through wind, rain and sunshine with the Box Park run club, team HOH lined up to run the Nike We Own The Night 10k around Victoria Park.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side and it not only poured with rain but there was a chilly wind to try to dampen our spirits. Luckily the weather held out for the hour of the race though making for a cool but pleasant run.
The winner of team HOH is Taylor, one of our online and sales interns (she’s also a semi-pro runner though so surely that’s cheating?!) who finished in 42 mins, closely followed by Henry at 43 mins. The rest of us did personal best times and all finished in under 1hr 5 mins.
All of us have had such a great time through the whole process. The free run club has been invaluable in getting us race fit and all the fun extras along the way have not gone amiss. We’d particularly like to thank Jay, Rebekah and the team at Nike for getting us on board and putting together such a great event.
Taylor – 42 mins
Henry – 43 mins
Steve – 48 mins
Emmeli – 53 mins
Jenn & Izzie – 59 mins
Gina & Lucy – 1hr 4 mins
So, when’s the next one?!
