Hi Cinders,

I probably will - first time this year as I started running in April. 

I'm still trying to decide between this one and the Harvest Trail 10 on the same day (miles away but I have a running friend in Hertfordshire... depends if I can persuade her!)

See you there Emma if you're not doing the Trail 10
21/07/2009 at 21:15
It's a Club Champs race for me, and I've done the previous three, so I expect I shall be there.

Me !!!

Hi Andy, see you there

Hey Nicola J,

 Are you travelling by train too?

I'm in !!!!

Love this one.

V flat apart from rememberance hill.

You can run flat out. Defo PB potential.

I'm there.

anyone else get an email about their payment not being accepted via the website, sounded a bit dodgy

Chaz - the start is only about 1 mile from Folkestone Central station, but I suspect getting a train may be your main problem. Assuming that you're travelling down through Ashford the first train into Folkestone arrives at 09:18, and that starts from Tonbridge. The first train down from London is an hour later - arriving after the start of the run.

Thanks for the info oi.you. Looks like I'll have to give this a miss.

Hi. I'm a total novice to racing but just noticed that this event is on my birthday and seems like a good time to start racing as any. Any advise on how long should I arrive before the start of the event?

Posted my entry to this one today. Will be my second half marathon after completing the Kent Coastal Half on 6th Sept.

Only started running in Feb this year.......but loving it!!!............and that just sounds so weird as I just started this as a cheap form of excercise.

Anyone know how long that Hill of Rememberance is???

that hill is epic and right at the end, many people walk it. Having said that you do go down more or less the same hill near the start.
15/09/2009 at 23:03
The hill is approx 300 metres long and climbs approx 30 metres - according to GoogleEarth. It would be a doddle if it wasn't 12 miles into the run.

I agree.In itself,the hill isn't really that long or steep,compared to some others.

What makes it always feel like a "killer" is that it comes right at the end of the race-when your legs are feeling the effects of 12+ miles of running-and the psychological effect it has coming after mile after mile of perfectly flat seafront.

It cost me an all-time PB 3 years ago.I had loads of time in hand after 11 miles,but struggled to keep running at all once I hit the hill.

I would imagine lots of potential PBs have died a death on that hill.....
