Stressful pre race as trains late both into and out of London, then had some crazy uber driver who couldn't turn round in the station car park.
Nearly knocked it all on the head, but jumped out of taxi at 19.15 and legged it straight to start, where the kindly start team let me start straight away and looked after my bag.
Unsurprisingly felt drained, but got through the first 5 OK, before making a right horlicks of 6 by mistaking the first left turn round the lake for the second and faffing in the woods in completely the wrong place.
Eased off the pace after that, noticed a few people crossing the purple to #11, nearly had a word but couldn't be bothered.
Had to then speed up again a bit as was getting dark and reading the map was becoming an issue.
Didn't cope with the multi level 18-19 at all well, though even afterwards can't see how you are meant to know which level 19 was on, 18 perhaps though to me still unclear.
Great park, must come back and do the parkrun.
