is the postal closing date of 5th Jan right?

it was May last year. if so i guess i missed the boat. mind not helped that i kept looking on the event website for it, which just has not been updated at all since last years pics were put on.

Just go for it Bats. Can't see them rejecting a postal entry unless it's full.

It was good last year as we went up for 3 days, & we spent the Sat at the Pleasure Beach.

It's one for all abilities too. Think I beat something like 522 people! Good atmosphere with a live radio show & commentary.

Have you actually done any running in the past month!!?? When are you next going to Heaton? I'm getting drawn to the Woodbank park one too. Nice to have a change.

i will, be the end of the month though.

zero running for almost 4 weeks. kiddywinks over xmas now the snow not happy lol. 

not sure when back at heaton. hopefully in 2 weeks time

Try not to do any training at all until the next Heaton, then I may have a chance of beating you.....I wasn't far off your time at "The Best"!!!!!!!
09/01/2010 at 17:28

cheers Dinda. enjoyed it on my previos occasion too, just taken me too long to get back to it.

This will be my first 10K. Really looking forward to it. Anyone else on here doing this one?

I've just decided to do this. What are the conditions/benefits of entering as a team? So you can see how well you do on average compared with other teams and see where you are in the finishing positions?

Also it says normal entries are £9.50 but online entry is £11?

 Welcome Wellyman.

Hi Alex. runnersworld add on a cut for themselves (in most cases its £1.50).

i think what the organisers have done though is make it so its £11 overall through here by taking the hit themselves and keeping it £11 for post enteries so everyone pays the same.

Thanks a lot.
