A selection of pictures from today’s London Winter Run. Its the fourth such event but the first for me. The day itself is significant because its held on World Cancer Day. Missed the start as it was 10.45am when I arrived! According to the blurb its said there would be a Yeti and a polar bear on a penny farthing bike! I didn’t get to see either, but saw plenty of what seemed like bears with carrots and hats… Of course they were snowmen. Silly me! The event finishes at 4.30pm today yet this is a record for me – to get a post published (14.50pm) before an event has ended! Enjoy the pics – they’re done in the order they were taken.
February the fourth – and they’re celebrating Xmas again!
For starters – a map showing the course of the London Winter Run
Yes it was quite cold today. Thumbs up for being a great runner!
Never too old for these selfies!
Snowmen in photo line up before commencing their duties as, erm… snowmen!
Cool guys, just a couple of the many hundreds of accomplished runners!
Cancer fundraiser in Trafalgar Square. A lovely pose!
Its very strong stuff. You’ll get drunk! Not to worry I’ll stagger to the finish line!
Photo opp time with the snowmen!

Mike, you’ve done well raising money for charity!

More runners, dont worry its just a few short metres to the finish line…
Wonder why they always put finish lines here…. maybe cos a King was finished off here long ago?
Not a snowman but a bear! Quite a few at the finish line, plus a inflatable one too (in background)
The inflatable bear made quite a popular photo setting for many of the runners who completed the course
Exercises don’t stop even though the running is now done!
Its bye from me until the next post. Over and out!
