I haven't worked out how to search the 1851 messages on the Abingdon thread, or if you can do this (another question in itself), so at the risk of repeating a previous thread...does anyone know if there will be any informally organised pacing groups arranged (maybe through the Runners world forum?) for the Abingdon marathon? Any info on this would be great,if it has already been organised. Thanks, ALison

Hi Alison
There is a group planning to get around in 4 hrs. There's also a list of peeps with their hoped-for time. What pace are you looking for?

I was hoping to do it somewhere between 3 hours 30 mins and 3 hours 45 minutes. Are there any groups planning for around that time? Alison

I have just copied the list of forumites on the latest page of the main thread. You can see from that list that there are a few running at your pace.
Saves you reading through all 1850 odd posts!!

Thanks for this! I've had a look at it on the other thread. I guess everyone will be swapping race numbers closer to the time, so they can identify each other (not sure what Blond Dog will look like!). I've written on the other thread, so that there's just one thread for the race. See you at the start line!

I have a similar plan... 3.29 to 3.42 am up for some company to keep me going. Will try to find out what my number is.

Sounds good. We could get a group of 3.30-3.45 runners together. Although after my 3 hour run yesterday, I think I will be much closer to 3.45 than 3.30. My race no. is 34.

My number is 317... did a slow 20 miler the over week to should be ok on pace if I don't tighten up too much

Is there a sub-4 pacer for this event?
16/10/2004 at 11:42
If you have a look on the other thread, there is a list of the times various people are aiming for, and there are quite a few sub 4's. I'm going to look out for their nos, plus Alan's (317). Mine is 34. See you at the start line!

Muttley - why? Is someone going to do sub-4?
16/10/2004 at 14:18

Alison . . . Muttley (who is cold blooded) is pullin' your leg . . . tomorrow the sub-4 group will be doing irony . .

177 - Noelene (3:59:59 is possible again)
179 - ICRAM
181 - its time (3:59:59)- looking a touch doubtfull :-(
187 - Highway Kind (3:59:59) – so much faster than 4 hours

264 - Basking Shark (4:00)
388 - Legless (3:59:59)

Sorry alison I missed you.. managed 3.29 company would have been good as I got a bit bored at times... having someone to gasp to would have been fun... next year then!
Well done to all...
19/10/2004 at 08:34
Well done, Alan. Just as well you missed me, as I did 3.50. Not enough training, too many injury interruptions. I enjoyed it though, and hopefully will be better prepared next year. See you next time!
