SW22 I honestly don't think I'll be much paster than that...

If you've trained for a half and you've got the miles in your legs you may well surprise yourself

Hi All,

 After reading these comments, you have given me the courage to enter. This will be my first race and I'm a bit unsure of what to expect. Can anyone tell me what happens on the day as regards to best place to park my car...changing....do we have to enroll on the day and what would be a good time to get to the event.

Thanks John s...

I've just had my race pack through.  It come with your t-shirt, race number and 'instructions' and directions...

Or are you entering on the day.

Apologies if I'm teaching a granny to such eggs John...  

If you're entering on the day, get there at least an hour earlier.  Race start is 10am so get there for 9am. 

At the start there'll be a registration tent where you hand over your tenner and get a race number, which you pin to the front of your top with safety pins you'll be given.

Instructions specify to be at the start line around 20mins before the start.

Parking:  voucher parking by North Road, College Rd, City Hall etc or in the Sophia gardens Car Park.

im a bit unsure about where the start is too... i didnt really understand the map!  not being from cardiff im not up with the place names on the map either

The start is by the ambulance station near the changing rooms. Closest parking is North Road. Easy walk from Castle though... Start is NOT at castle.

OK...now I'm ready North Road parking and hopefully better weather than today!! good luck to you all.

Hi all i have done this one for the last two years and it is a perfect race for the first timer, a little tip if you are entering on the day ( not just this race, any race ) take your own pins in case they run out. Good luck everyone

so how did we all get on?   quite a nice little event, my dog loved it!!!
02/03/2008 at 12:52
I met up with a fellow local forumite who is following a run-walk programme and it was her first ever race.  She hadn't even done the distance yet and we got round with only tiny stops in just under 33 minutes, so BIG slap on the back for her!

We started right at the back of the pack and I was running behind the girl in the dragon outfit most of the time, as the swing of the dragon's tail was a nice mesmerising pace!

Hi All

Just finished this race, I am some what suprised by my time. If my stopwatch is correct I finished in about 19' 12. My pb was set last week during the blackfriers 5k time trail which was 20' 06. It says on the runners world website that the course was measured and certified. Did anyone check the distance using thier garmin or any other type of course distance measuring watch. If anyone can help it would be most  appreciated.

Thanks Nam

I havent stopped smiling yet

02/03/2008 at 15:45
well done everyone - sounds like you all had a good one
02/03/2008 at 17:00

Robert - you've got me thinking now, i got my 1st 5k time of 25.36 at the time trial last saturday... today i got 25.05 according to my hrm but it felt like i was running slower today than last week

perhaps the distance wasnt right if i can easily knock 30 seconds off my time in a week??

02/03/2008 at 17:38
Knocked over a minute off my p b and did'nt feel i was running noticibly faster so you might be right Southwales22, the results can be found here when its next updated probably in a day or so.             http://www.lescroupiersrunningclub.org.uk/results/
