Grindleford entries now open - https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?event_id=882

As you put together your spring marathon plans, you might be interested in this article on the Hansons' Marathon Schedule: http://www.runnersworld.com/race-training/new-year-new-you-way-renegades?page=single I'm sure many of you are already familiar with it.

I don't mention this to promote or advocate it, just food for thought. The plan is perhaps best known for the element that caps the longest run at 16 miles. It is hard to argue with the success that the athletes who have followed it have had.

Of course a weekly parkrun can't hurt either!!

Entered Grindleford last night. Almost 200 entries already.

Might do Liverpool or Blackpool instead of Wilmslow. It's very expensive and you have to have a degree in nuclear physics to be able to navigate around the entry application, only certain types of cards accepted too. Worse than trying to get Olympic tickets. Sorry for my constructive feedback RB!! Happy to take any S10 feedback from you!

Eric- Yes you are right about Wilmslow- I remember a similar problem a few years back so I gave up which was good in my case as it meant one less wasted race entry! Why pamper Wilmslow's complexity when..... (sorry I'll shut up now )

14/11/2012 at 23:00

ES/Mort-tbh, i came to the same conclusion

15/11/2012 at 06:47
I'm gonna do Wilmslow. Don't forget to factor in travel costs if you do Blackpool / Liverpool.
15/11/2012 at 06:52
FOAR - Maurice Holmes is that spin bowler I was talking about (although I've decided I don't like cricket this morning!) :/
15/11/2012 at 08:22
ES - Wilmslow is too expensive, but like NI says it is local; well organised; the timing is perfect for mara training and it has great depth so you can measure yourself against a quality field. You also get a very good quality tech t shirt.


Also the roads a properly closed and it is fast and scenic.

So shut your mouth, how can you say, they go about things the wrong way?
15/11/2012 at 09:03

I forgot to say yesterday- Please don't mention Hanson again because I end up with Mmm Bop in my head all day.

Plod- If Seagull wants to run in Liverpool or the seaside town they forgot to close down then what difference does it make to you?! YOU shut your mouth!

 

15/11/2012 at 09:46

Mort - I think that seaside town actually is closed now. This is why the political parties annual PR exercise, AKA 'the party conference', which were often held there in the past, are now occasionally held in the city built by Morrissey.

The lights are left on in September and October for the tourists.

That thing in your head is apparently known as an 'ear worm' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earworm). I don't thnk there is a cure.

ooh! clairster - I'm going to have a day off work next week to go and recce round the Hebden route if you're interested...?
(this applies to anyone else btw, but I know clairster is mad for the Calder Valley)

 

15/11/2012 at 21:27

GBM - not sure if you were thinking of a Sunday run but I won't be able to make it - chest infection! I knew something was brewing!

16/11/2012 at 07:44
Clairster - Good job you're on the ball! I get a load of running related emails all of which I just delete atm without reading but I do vaguely remembered seeing one from Run Further so i've just sifted through the deleted folder & there it was. Looks as though I might have done . I'd completely forgotten I'd entered that & I wasn't going to bother, glad I did now. Thanks for pointing it out

Wilmslow Half is certainly way too expensive.  Some of the organisational costs are high (road closures particularly) but even so the cost has risen just based on what can be charged and got away with compared to Great Manchester Run etc.  No person or company is making any money out of the event.  The "profit" is used to support the rugby club, the hockey club and large grants are made to local charities.  The running club has benefitted from the improvements to changing rooms.  Personally I don't mind paying a bit to support local sports clubs and charities but I think that we should make it clear where the money comes from and where it goes.  I have been asking for a couple of pie charts in the programme for many years.

But, the prizes are good at Wilmslow - £125 voucher for winning PPP's category.  Also it is the national championships, a great event and well organised by Malcolm's team.

I can't fault the S10.
