Helsby and Ironbridge for me.

Ooooh, I'm excited already!

Already sent my entry for Helsby off. Someone did say it fills up very early so be warned. Ironbridge has to be my local 1/2 so I'd better do that one too.

I really fancy Coniston, though walking there used to kill me when I was 17!!!
Isnt it a fell run??
Salisbury, FAB, Stonehenge--
Like the sound of Ironman
Oh God, shall be in permanently knackered phase like now
Dont think marathon followed by half marathon 6 weeks later is particularly si=ensible for a beginner!!
Just cant resist
Someone decide for me!!

Helsby's pretty close, but would require a complete change in my training. Would have to up the length of my longest runs very significantly. How late can I leave it to decide whether or not to enter, on past experience - anyone?
If successful, then Ironbridge - maybe.

Thanks BK, delighted to see both Helsby and Coniston made the list, I'm down for both so it looks like I might finally get to meet some forumites in the flesh, which I'll really look forward to. Inverness would be great if I could sell it as a weekend youth hostelling to the family, will have to decide nearer the time.

Pleased to see you're keeping your promise Ratbag! Don't be scared of Coniston, it's 14 miles not a half so you've every excuse to forget your normal 1/2m times anyway.

Go on Mike; just think of it as 53*400 m with no recoveries.

You didnt mention the extra Coniston mile
Suppose its up a hill

Salisbury for me - if it's not too hilly!

Almost certainly Salisbury, possible Ironbridge but its the day after I return from a skiing trip!!! Maybe I can catch a lift.
Is it possible for organisers to extend the entry limits to races if they know they have a big demand? How/ Why do they set entry limits ?

I like your idea of winning the "unofficial team" team prize at Salisbury.
We'll have to persuade Drew to come along.

Will do Helsby.

Would like to do Salibury, but if not will do either Ironbridge or Coniston which ever is the most popular.

p.s. 1st time using forum and have only done 2 10k races so far this year (only started running in Feb 02)

Welcome Theresa
The others are all mad, except myself and Jonny Boy, and RB and Badge and....

These races should be great!

Good for you Tired Legs. I started around the same time as you. You'll be hooked before you know it.

Don't listen to Barkles, he lost it years ago

Put me down for Salisbury - a weekend away and it is taking ages to catch up!!

01/10/2002 at 13:35
Salisbury Plain will be very special - very vibey place.
I shall be up for Consiton/Ironbridge too.

Daisy Dog - where is your kennel? I used to live at Chittern. Love that whole area dearly.
01/10/2002 at 14:01
I'd love to meet up, but geography is my worst subject Salisbury is kent isn't it? Coniston no idea - when are these?
01/10/2002 at 14:04
Salisbury I believe is in Wiltshire (you're probably thinks of Canterbury - Cathedral thing)

Coniston I would imagine Lake District.
01/10/2002 at 14:10
Can anyone join in ?

Salisbury is better for me being about an hour down the A303. Not sure if clashes with the Camberley halfM tho' - wouldn't want to miss that having set pbs in the past two years, I should go for the hat-trick.
01/10/2002 at 14:20
The idea is everyone joins in. Hope it doesn't clash
01/10/2002 at 14:29
Any of you lot doing the Kenilworth Half marathon this weekend? I shall be there!!!
