My mate came along with me to this one about 3 years ago, not signed up, on the off chance of running it and was comfortably able to sign up on the day. In fact there was a mass of tables and entry forms, so seemed well accepted.

With a 15,000 limit, and finishers in the last 3-4 years being 5-8,000 I don't see any reason why that can't happen this year!

 It's probably worth a quick call to the organsiers who I'm sure won't say no.

I'd have been interested myself on a last minute decision but off to watch Man Utd instead!

Hi all,

I signed up for this race as a training run for VLM, but, well i'm not doing VLM anymore, and having run this one for the last 3 years, i'm not that bothered about doing it again. So, if anyone needs/wants my place then drop me an email toby182@o2.co.uk. First come first served.

Cheers

Hey,

 I'm doing this one for the fisrt time, anyone know how long the course is?  I'm wondering how many laps there are.

Cheers!

being a half marathon, 13.1 miles.

laps 1 (does not folloow the circut as a normal car race would)

map of the course...

change the view from street view to satellite so the course makes more sense to look at.

Thanks.

Being a member of this site, I was clear asking for the race distance ;0)

Sorry, the snow gave me an extra sarcastic mood lol. Not sure how long the track is as it gets configured for different types of races. The map does show how it will be marked out for the run though

Thanks - That is a really useful link actually - I have been wondering for ages what the route actually is. Only thing is the first mile seems a bit longer than the rest based on that image. Or I am nitpicking.
21/02/2010 at 20:03
yep, looking forward to this... gone without alcohol since new year leading up to it ... going for a sub-1:30

not really looked too hard at the map. 1st mile could depend on where the actual start point is rather than where its been pinned on the map as being.

yep got mine too! Ran this for my first ever half marathon last year and loved it! using it as training for my first ever marathon this year.
22/02/2010 at 17:45

Mmmm, he didn't bring mine today.  Will wait till tomorrow!

All I can add if you haven't done this before is make sure you're covered for all weather!  The track is very open and exposed in places.  2 of the 3 times I've run it it has been snowing!!!

22/02/2010 at 18:06
and I got sunburnt last year!
22/02/2010 at 18:42
Having been to the Grand Prix numerous times since 2001, I can testify that the area does have its own micro-climate.
23/02/2010 at 08:58

Yeah I even got sunburnt on a rainy day watching the Grand Prix

Would love to do this race.
