Fast Half Marathon
Thought it would be good to start a forum thread for this year's race.
With a new fast course for 2012 there are already a record number of entries and the race is sure to be full well in advance of race day, so don't delay entering. For full information and online entry see race web site
We have monthly training runs from Total Fitness Chester, the next is this Sunday (4th), we meet in the cafe by reception ready for a 9am start. A number of different groups from 7:30 pace to run walk, all welcome to join us for a social run with coffee & flap jack afterwards.
Any questions please ask away & will get back to you.
Chris (Race Co-Organiser)
Deff. looking forward to this. I will be there on Sunday (no ice this time)!!!
I'm hoping to improve my half marathon time this year, I don't belong to a club so looking for some valuable input from others. See you on Sunday..
Hi Colin, hope your training and fund raising are going well.
Fab. to see everyone at the training run this morning, great turnout (65 of us) & good running by all. Was good to chat in cafe afterwards & share training tips & hints. Thanks to all who came along.
Next training run will be from Total Fitness Chester on Sunday 1st April 9am. Target will be 10 miles for most groups (7:30 to 11:00 min miling, 7 different paced groups).
RACE NEARLY FULL
With double the previous number of entries the race is going to be full very soon. We are now down to the last 500 places, so if you are thinking of entering please don't delay and enter now
Nearly full, it's going to be a nightmare getting off the Racecourse car park this year, last year went into town, shopped, had a meal, walked back and still had to Q to get out of Racecourse.
Colin - Parking on the racecourse will be different this year, we will be marshaling cars on the way out to speed things up plus have police on the exits. Also there will be a special park & ride plus all the city centre car parks to cope with the increase in numbers.
I downloaded an app for my iphone called Run Keeper and its help my cut 7mins off my 10k time in one run!
You can set a pace and it can notify you every half a Km.
Really reccommend it for cutting down times
First ever half marathon for me really looking forward to it. So far so good with the training, 11 mile long run scheduled for Sunday.
Good luck Jake and everyone else who has entered
