Race Report   Luton 10K 25th July 2010 : 
The GOOD NEWS  - I would say after umpteen years of running this race as horrible 3 lap event they have finally made it fantastic with a new very scenic route taking in Luton Hoo house and grounds and the new Lee valley walk cycle path. (Although they still have to Tarmac one bit of the cycle path). Mostly car free (~1 km on a public side road) - no congestion  - running mostly in beautiful countryside -  and you don't see any of Luton......
The BAD NEWS - the course  UnDuLaTeS  - so it's a real tester - there is one monster of a hill.... but you run down it. Think you get the illusion that your running uphill all the time (the Finish is only about 2ft higher than the Start !!). Anyway Iva said she really enjoyed it and there were a number of Harriers with PB' s - which is amazing - that Harriers getting PB's not Iva enjoying herself.
Well done to Harriers- Jerry, Dave, Ian J, Ian M, Juilet, Marianne, Clive, Lesley, Iva
