Seville 5k Breakfast Run evaluate

Right here’s what I appreciated probably the most about this occasion and why I’d like to run it once more.

  • Though it was “simply” a 5k, the ambiance was unbelievable. Spanish occasion organisers know the right way to placed on a celebration! It gave me a style of the marathon ambiance with out participating in the principle occasion.

  • It’s an excellent occasion for individuals like myself who had been in Seville to spectate the marathon and had mates/household operating it (my associate took half) however weren’t racing it themselves. It felt like we had been nonetheless participating by some means, and received to expertise a number of the magic of the weekend.

  • The course was actually gratifying, beginning and ending in Seville’s hottest park, and taking you thru a number of the iconic sights such because the Plaza de España.

  • It was gratifying for everybody, whether or not you wished to go full beans or taking it simple as your ultimate shakeout earlier than the marathon. Both method, you had individuals to run with.

  • It was very properly organised on the day and the outcomes had been printed on-line immediately.

Any downsides?

  • The course appeared barely shorter than 5k, and it doesn’t appear to be it’s been precisely measured, as per the wording on the web site: “The circuit will measure roughly 5000 meters”. So technically, you can not declare your end result as a 5k PB.

  • I noticed photographers on the occasion, however there have been no pictures obtainable on-line to obtain and even purchase. It will have been good to have some visible recollections of the occasion!

  • The 5k race quantity assortment wasn’t the smoothest. While my associate collected his marathon quantity as quickly as he arrived, I needed to wait in line for 25 minutes. Sadly there was just one stand for the 5k quantity with just some volunteers. If there was such an extended line on the Friday morning at 10:30, I can’t think about how dangerous it was at 5-6pm!
