Start your engines
So then, who's up for this? I did this as part of my buildup for FLM last year, and since April I've been sat squarely on my arse, aside from the odd gym session.
I'm looking at 9 weeks of uncomfortable hell to get myself back into the rhythm, although I think I'd struggle with 5k at the moment. I'm trapped through, a mate of mine has entered and I agreed to do it with him ages ago. I shall pinch a 12 week schedule and compress it accordingly.
It was a good race last year though, a bit dank and damp at the start but it warmed up nicely after the first hour, I'm looking forward to it.
it is a good event in every way i think-
i say that even though my relationship with the organisers isn't sweet
but i'm not knocking the event - we clocked 1.48 and 1.54 i think there -
we've also taken part there in the East Midlands summer grand prix 10k race in May about 4 maybe 5 times - our times there - twice around the formula one curquit range from 46.30 - 52 mins
can be exposed though in wrong conditions- and the middle bit is boring around the outer perimeter service road
but that's running for you - your in or your not - simple
petedaddy - I have a FLM club place. I could do a local race on this day but have decided to pay my club back for my place by helping them out. I will do my lsr on Saturday.
Na i doubt it - u enjoy it babe
mick - I don't think getting on a coach from Dagenham at 6am in the morning to go to Silverstone and stand in th cold sorting baggage enjoyable except for seing my running friends.
barongreenback - this was my first ever race and you are right £15 is not bad for this event.
petedaddy - have you entered this race yet?
barongreenback - I know petedaddy from being on the Sub 5hr FLM thread last year. You could do a couple of races for £35.
Yep Tracey, I entered last night. Gah!
£35 for GMR is far too much. It was £30 last year and that was a joke, it's only a 10k!
petedaddy - Roobarb is doing it.
1 x clockwise lap of curquit
1 x antil clockwise lap of inner perimeter service road
1 x anti clockkwise lap of cirquit
I't s flat compared to Brands hatch HM
Excuse me saying this - ( I don't know u or your abilty )
go back and read the 4th post on this thread
Like i said- only problem with Silvesrtone- if the weather is inclement - it can be exposed and hard running
i think it WOULD be worth your journey
It depends what u want -
Apple - on the plus side you do get a nice medal.
Mick - I was looking forward to seeing you and Phil at Silverstone
Tracey - what can i say ahh
You know me, so if i said what i really thought ( and it does NOT involve the organisers) you'd understand - but others ( some know me - some don't ) may not and may thinking i'm being arrogant and patronising- and if they did think that i could'nt blame them
i certainly would'nt be running for ANY momentoes- we run to run -Full Stop !
