Running Brown at Lesnes Abbey Woods. near Woolwich in SE London, on a pleasant and sunny day, and not too cold. A tough, physical area, with lots of small but deep valleys, and a lot of green forest (& the map is somewhat out of date.) The course was relentless, with route choices on most legs, and mistakes generally meaning a lot of extra climbing.
Came second, and was in fact leading until quite near the end, when I tired somewhat (my middle section was fast as I was racing the winner head-to-head) and took some poor route choices. Annoyed that I was so close to winning a race, but happy with second place out of over 20 runners on the course. According to my GPS, the actual distance run was around 11.4km (although much of the course was in dense tree cover, so it may have been a little more than this.)

Hackney to/from Abbey Wood, via the Greenway and the Woolwich Foot Tunnel. 50 minutes there, over 1h 5m back (into the end, and very tired after running in a tough race.)
