will try one of these this year but which one .does anyone have any info on these races ie transport accomadation etc. i will be travelling from scotland.

Am entered in the Rotterdam marathon. Transport should be easy as start and finish is right in the centre. For getting there easiest options would be either ferry from Hull overnight to Rotterdam or cheap flight to Amsterdam and then a train straight from airport direct to Rotterdam.

i registered on-line for the barcelona race but the on-line form had no provision for payment---how do we know if the entries have been accepted ?????
please tell me how you have paid
23/01/2003 at 09:33
i was e.mailed the next day confirming my registration then asked for a bank draft or credit card details
for the 35euros.
i will receive my no. and pay for the chip
at the expo on the sat.
i will be going via luton from glasgow on sat. morning.
let me know if you req. anymore info.

let me know how you get on and maybe we can meet on sat at the expo or the race on sunday.
24/01/2003 at 23:20
got the confirmation e-mail today---would like to pay by credit card but there does not appear to be a secure connection---will see the bank on mon.
would like to meet--have only ran solo--imagine it would be easier to run with someone---have just joined a running club so will soon test this theory---i will be staying at the "HOME" guest house/hostel about 3 miles from barcelona centre
25/01/2003 at 20:07
i am staying near the la ramblas area, not sure how far from the centre. i have allways found it easier to run with a partner to relieve the pain.
im sure we can arrange something nearer the time.
went on my first long run today 1h 30,the weather was bright windy and heavy showers
got soaked through in the first 30min
its all in the fun of running.

hope to meet you there--good luck with the training--have not got the commitment to run in the rain---i just head for the gym and pound out the miles on the treadmill--did 14 m on the road on sat--2hr 7min--just keeping steady and trying to avoid injury
28/01/2003 at 08:13
at the moment the weather here is very windy with heavy showers will just have to try to get out whenever possible.
07/02/2003 at 09:39
how is the training going have you been out so far,ran 5 miles this morning as the snow had vanished, hope for a long run this weekend.
10/02/2003 at 17:13
went out for my long run on sunday.2hrs
felt slightly tired towards the end,but feel ok today. will start my short runs tomorrow. how is your training coming along.

hi kg
training going ok--did 20m last sat--3hr 5min--last 5miles were horrible--totally knackered--may have a slight chest infection
am still having problems paying the entry fee for the marathon--went to my bank with the confirmation e-mail and they said there was not enough info to make a bank transfer--would like to pay by credit card but no secure mode of paying this way--have e-mailed the web site --hopefully there is a simple way to do this--how did you do it ?
keep up the training
13/02/2003 at 09:28
have run two 5m runs this week.
I paid my entrance fee by credit card and im sure i received a confirmation but my computer crashed last week have asked for
another copy checked my bank statement but the fee still hasnt been withdrawn.
I'll be running the GRANGEMOUTH 10K this sunday. will try to fit in a run on sat.

hi kg
sent a bank draft to barcelona but the bank were not too confident about it getting to the right place given the info on the spanish e-mail--one would almost imagine that the spanish were trying to discourage foreign entries--i still do not know if i have paid or not--wiill definitely not enter this race again--also the bank draft cost £25--more than the race entry fee!!!
why could they not just include a space on the entry form for a credit card no. and make it a secure connection--every other country seems able to do this
i feel better with this little rant of my chest
am still logging in around 50m per week--did another 20miler on sat wearing new shoes i intend running in--went ok--3hr 10m but was freezing cold--nearly packed it in at the 8m mark but the sun came out and defrosted me--best of luck at Grangemouth--what time did you do?Are you doing any long runs
17/02/2003 at 13:17
went for a 1hour run on sat.The GRANGEMOUTH 10K i ran in 46min ,feeling ok today.
Ihope to go for 3hr run this week as i am on holiday.
I still havent got a reply from BARCELONA
regarding my entry fee confirmation.
keep on running.

good run in the 10k--RW pace predictor indicates a 3hr51s marathon off that time--i wonder how accurate these pace predictors are---have not had a race since Nov--here in NI races are few and far between during the winter--i feel really envious when i see all the races listed on the mainland--still no reply from Barcelona---anyway keep up the training
19/02/2003 at 13:10
weather here in SCOTLAND is dry but very cold, had a couple of rest days due to the kids being on holiday.
managed a 1hr. run today will try for a longer run thur/friday.
