Serpentine 5k

Competing in his third race in twelve days Grantham Running Club's Robert McArdle took part in this classic race round the Serpentine boating lake in Hyde Park, London.

Despite the strong winds and the race taking part over the more twisty winter course there were some world class performances at the front of the field with three scores of over 90% and 10% of the field beating the 80% barrier. In such exalted company, Robert's PB of 21:44 and 71% WMA are put into context.
