Whats the course - ?
Really looking forward to the Half next year after todays 10K over at Moreton Morrell. Read all about it http://www.hamptonmagnarun.co.uk/christmas-cracker-10k-moreton-morrell/. I'm looking to organise some early Sunday Morning long run sessions in the lead up to the half, essentially on or around the route itself, so if anyone fancies some company on a long run, and is local, let me know. We also meet regularly on Friday evenings @ 6pm #hamptonmagnarun

5m30s per km is pushing it quite hard for me.
That's under 9 m/ mile don't know about quite hard that's bl**dy impossible for me
Hello - this will be my first half marathon - being supported by local running group.
Having done Heroes Run and Two Castles last year, I know the castle allows free parking only until a certain time on race days.
Have received outline plan from Hannah and working on LSR taking in a bit more of the route every week. Still not sure I will get there, but hoping confidence will grow as LSR gets longer and longer. Least being local means I have a good idea what the route is like. Hannah has been helpful so far - good luck on the big task ahead of you.
We have a running group in Kenilworth for anyone interested in joining us, especially on Sundays - organisers planning shorter route for slow coaches like me, longer more challenging route for others and meet up at end. We have grown from being a group that carried on after some of us training for first 10K. No PBs, occasional coffee and even curry nights and plenty of support to achieve your goals. Contact Steve Atherton or Steve Mason - all abilities welcome.
Steve - that ford only gets wet during silly wet season. I often run that route and have not got wet yet. Also the B road you mention is very very quite. ( but gets busier near kenilworth ) No problems for me to dat - especially when run in daylight with bright clothes running into "traffic". Its undulating rather than hilly - but I agree the car is different to running !!
thanks AGF. Great to know. In that case I will give that B-road section a go one Sunday and see how it is.
considering this one. Don't think PB will be possible on this course, but now I live 1 mile from the start, may have to be done. The stretch all the way from mile 3 to mile 11 is fairly lumpy, particularly from mile 5 to 9, but if the road is traffic-free, very pleasant to run along.
Signed up in the week and already thinking about the race. Ran GNR and Leicester Half last year but both late in the year ( Sept & Oct). Will be interesting to see how I go in March?? Looking forward to a pint of the Black Stuff after - Well it is St Patricks Day.
I ran the Portree (Skye) HM last year which was pretty undulating! I haven't done any since but am training again so hope this one won't be too bad as found it was a little bit too hilly for me.
That is a con, there was no mention of this before, it's disgraceful. I got conned like this at whipsnade a few years back and said wouldn't do that gagin (and haven't).
Too far into the training to pull out now, hopefully someone from the organisers is looking at this site. If this is intended to be a one off event then I don't suppose you really care, but if you want this to grow into an annual event then you REALLY need repeat runners (and good reviews) which you won't get with cons like this.
If this realy is the case I'll run this year but not again.
Very queit from Hannah or anyone else from the organisers, whilst appreciate it's probably not your decision or fault at least some form of response would be appreciated.
This is disgusting, having known this before i would not have entered. it costs enough to enter never mind making friends and family pay to see you finish, what a joke!
Just had another look at the BHF web site and it says the following
Your friends and family are very welcome to join in cheering at the finish line. Ask them to look the part and rock up in red!
So if it's true they have to pay it's even worse that BHF are encouraging people to attend without saying they have to pay. Whats the situation Hannah?
