After a 5 mile race in the east midlands, our club has a record time for this distance and I think I can beat it. Any suggestions would be most welcome

Eh ?

I am looking for race in the midlands, the distance being 5 miles. I know it's a strange distance for a race but I have seen a few

Used to be a couple in the old East Mids Grand Prix series .... Banbury  and Rugby ?

03/09/2013 at 18:04

Ohh yeah sorry forgot to mention that

Wellingborough ? 

Its 10 years since I lived in the area, how about asking someone at your club ?

03/09/2013 at 18:13

I will ask them but I have had a little scour of the internet beforehand

If you still haven't done it by February try Alsager. What is the club record?

03/09/2013 at 18:21

it's around 40 minutes I think, althought it's only that because most of the club have never raced a 5 miler

Well, in that case definitely don't ask them what races there are, or they'll all notice what you're doing and turn up at the same race!

Good job you havent used your own name and stated your intentions on a popular running website too.

If you think you can beat them then you should organise a club race. Put your money where your mouth is.

I'm sure you could find a few club members to marshall. Could even become an annual event and expand to non-members.

I hope they do turn up, the competition will push me harder and thats not a bad idea tim

Good point. Actually, you might as well tell us what club it is now. I might join and have a go at that record myself.

It'd be quite a trek from the Midlands (if a fairly straightforward journey), but this race sells itself as being good for a PB attempt: http://www.ickenham5.co.uk/ I've never run it before so can't comment, but will be there on the 15th to test it out for myself. Best of luck in your goal!
