Just spotted that entries open on 1st February - it sold out pretty quickly last year.

I'll be logging in and doing online this year, I sent off by post last year but didn't realise it sold out as quickly as it does.

And they've even opened it early

Just note the 5 hour limit will be more strictly enforced this year

Nice one. I'm in.

Not that I am suggesting that would be a problem for anyone!!!

I'm in, was the link off the man site working? I went in directly through runbritain. Small matter of London to get through first and I'm nursing a dodgy calf at the moment but abo is definitely my A race this year.
Pmo must be number 1 getting in at 6:20

Details via this link:


please ignore the "venue" on the RunBritain site.  This will be corrected shortly

Sadly Martin, I reckon it'll go alphabetically

01/02/2013 at 12:27
Ha ha I've been number 1 before (by chance) and believe me it's not worth the pressure

My favourite was 666

01/02/2013 at 14:08

I was a 666 in a previous race as well!  Went well with the club vest and gave the annoucer at the track a good giggle.

I signed up for Chester yesterday.  Abingdon was great last year but I'm not sure I can do both.  Might have to leave it for the time being and hope for a transfer closer to the time, depending on how I feel and availability.  I think there were a few transfers going on in September...

I'm in. I entered via run Britain yesterday afternoon! Looking at the web site I'm not sure it should of been open yesterday.

Who has raced Abingdon before? Is it a very flat course? I need a new PB

I'm in. Maybe I get the number 259. It will give me a target to aim for.
01/02/2013 at 18:04
Gazelle it's as flat as a pancake definite pb course. There is a slight rise that you go up twice but there's no way you could call it a hill!!
01/02/2013 at 18:25
Martin, I'll hold you to that!

Millay-259 looks a nice number, I hope I get 314;-)
01/02/2013 at 20:30

I'd like 3:29.59 or below

01/02/2013 at 22:37

3rd time lucky for me, I have entered before but not actually made  to the start for various reasons..

01/02/2013 at 23:38

I think the biggest 'hill' is that first bit of road as soon as you come out of the stadium. Course is flat and fast - Abingdon is a great race. I'm in again!!
