Dustin,

I take it you'd recommend the Camberley half then? I'm working in Camberley at the moment (lovely 2 hour commute from my home in central London...) so I could be tempted. Is it flat?

Definitely Ironbridge poss Helsby. Someone asked (sorry can't remember who) is Ironbridge hilly. There is a lengthy downhill and an uphill - the route goes from Telford Town Park down into the Severn Valley, across the old iron bridge (hence the name) along the river more or less on the other side and then back across the new bridge and up a hill to Madeley and back to the town park. The uphill bit is a bit challenging. But the route is very scenic as I don't think you can see the power station!!

I MUST do Ironbridge, then, because I can send the kids off to Wonderland Park for the day and they'll be quite happy.

I don't want to be left out, so it may be Salisbury for me. I live in Wiltshire so it is my local.Depends how things work out for the Bath half.(The Bath is full already!!)

Is it just going to be me in Inverness then? Might consider coming down South, which Coniston is it Humberside or Cumbria?
All the others are too far for me.

I shall be doing the Inverness half .. so that kind of rules out the others in March ..
I'll be in Amsterdam the Helsby weekend .. so that one is a no no ...
but hopefully more will come the calander for June or July ...

DD, see you at Inverness then I hope, you done it before?

Never knew there was a Coniston in Humberside Sarcy. The event is the Lake District one.

I'd like to do Inverness, especially since an old friend of mine lives there who's had 2 babies since I last saw her, and I want to see how a mad whisky drinking Scot can turn into earth mother overnight.

I'll be doing Inverness - sort of have to as I live here and know the organiser! I've done it two of the last 3 years (had flu in 2001) and it's a really good race.

Iwill be running in INVERNESS next year ,missed last year, nice route will be easier than the marathon we have just completed . I not sure of the other races.

Venom,

Camberely is not exactly flat , 2 loops with a shortish hill on each, the rest is undulating (but not as bad as Windsor).
Some of it is on residential roads but there is normally a good turn out.

Organisation is excellent (little queuing to park,adequate toilets,plenty of drinks)
and I've done it the past 2 years in my marathon build up and ran a pb both times (although I subsequent ran faster at Bracknell - end of April).

2 years ago it was freezing and snowing ....

I was thinking this morning on the way in to work whilst reading my Runners World (like you do) and thought that we should stick our nicknames on our backs (like race numbers) during our races. I thought that would be fun and make identification easy.

Caz, have been thinking the same myself... great minds think alike (obviously!)
03/10/2002 at 10:27
Morning Foxy, yes good ideas we animals have.
03/10/2002 at 10:30
Morning BK, I'd keep away from the dark side today if I was you - they have totally lost it (BIG TIME).... (even I'm sane today in comparison!)
03/10/2002 at 10:32
Caz
no point me putting my name on my back, there's not ususally anyone behind me.
Apart from the ambulance.
03/10/2002 at 10:33
Barkles, well at least they'd know your name when they are reviving you!
03/10/2002 at 10:34
Barkles, you obviously haven't ran with me then!!!!

Good idea Caz, my knees usually gave me away but now I'm leaving them behind I'll need something else.

To dark even for a Fox, must be really bad in there
