You can drive and we can play eye spy.

Go on, you know you want to.

Isn't Tim Dale 2 on the scene anymore to do such tasks?

Oh no I didn't!

Yes I did!

Maybe us three could share a lift!

Oh no I didn't!

Yes I did!

I like the way he disappeared when his lack of any running knowledge was exposed.

My favourite part was saying would the Wycombe half put him up in a hotel, and then claiming he lived in Cookham...even though the 2 are about 5miles apart if that!!

It wasn't him, Ian!!

Hello All,

I see some of the posts are quite old , im doing it for the first time this year , just wondering do they usually send the race numbers out or do you get them when you get there ?

 You get your race numbers on the day of the race.

Hi I'm doing this one too, my first ever race. And so is my wife, who hasn't trained but is much more of a natural than me

 Good luck - I will be the person at the back walking the dog (genuine reason for not running - bad back!)

Enjoy the race.

Good luck dave and wife and so to you rowan.

Hehe if you're going to be right at the back Rowan, we may become acquainted I'm aiming for 1hr flat, I'll be v happy with anything faster than that.

Nice downhill bit at 1/2 mile - horrible hilly bit at 5 miles (my age sorry - don't work in km!) which is hard work! Long section along river bank which takes very near 3 pubs!

 Run through a chuchyard at about 4 1/2 miles which is quite amusing!

Yeah I saw the photos from last year from the church yard. We're dead excited, have been looking forward to it for weeks. Hope the weather stays good. I admit I'm sweating the hill a bit - training in longlevens I haven't found a decent hill within 5 miles of here so no hill training at all. I suppose I should peg it up and down a few motorway bridges

Pubs that sounds good to me, ive recently moved to Glos area and training for hills is a nightmare, i lived near cannock chase before and the hills were good for training now im on flat unless going ovee chosen hill which is confusing over there
05/09/2011 at 13:46
Yeah I may have to start one run a week with a bike ride over to chosen or wainlode/norton/sandhurst hill or something.
05/09/2011 at 13:51
i almost got up Wainlodes after about 4 miles - that is one steep hill!

JB - hills in Glos area? Plenty of them...look to the East. Cotswold escarpment!

Im not doing this, but if the church you run through is down by Odda's chapel, then it is gorgeous.

the church is 200 yards away from Odda's Chapel --- there is a wedding at 1.00 so hope we do not have some really slow runners!
