Just got the entry form through the post for this and I can't wait. This will be my fourth time running it, twice it was glorious sunshine (if a little too much sun), and last year it was wet and windy.

This is the race I'm really looking forward to this year, and I'm hoping for another PB (provided I can get over my current injury and get some solid training time in).

Who else is up for this one....?

Hi Funkin, Mr Happychap and I are planning to go to this one again.

Nice race but last years weather really was dreadful. Hopefully this year we'll see some sun :o)

I have done it for the last 2 years and last years weather did suck. it is my favourite run and i am aiming for a PB again this year. The only problem i have with it is that the race is my main training route!!!

Mrs Funkin and myself had great 10k runs in Chichester this past Sunday. Bring on Bognor...

Anyone know of any other good 10k (ish) races in the same area over the coming months?

I will be running this, I love the course, a defo pb race, as long as weather is ok!

There is a fast 10k in Portsmouth at the begining of June, Called D-Day 10k, it is flat and farily fast. Not as nice as the Bognor race, but it is fast.

Count me in! Did it years ago in lashing rain, so hope for better weather...I am doing the London M so this race will keep me training after the big event and of course a nice weekend stay with my folks in BR.

Race number received this morning - 157. Now's a great time to be tracking down an eight week 10k schedule. Enjoy your training everyone, and feel free to let us know how you're getting on.

I wonder if anybody can help me here? Is the start/finish close to the station?
30/04/2007 at 13:09
Ian it is a fair walk to the west end car park from the station. However I think it is better than going by car as parking will be an issue with that many people!I would guess the station is 1-2miles from the start.

Just did a google map. Its 1.5 miles. Go to maps.google.co.uk and enter "Station Rd, Bognor Regis, West Sussex PO21" as the start and "Silverston Ave" as the end and it should be 1.5 miles.

Could be a good 1.5 mile warm up if you take it easy.

How's everyones training going? I'm doing a 10k this coming sunday as a bit of a warm up/race prep which should tell me if my recent months of training have been going well (which I think they have).

The station in bognor is not too far from the start. when you get off of the train head towards the seafront and walk east you will reach the start. hope that is of some help. parking is usually ok. am lucky as i am able to walk down.

Thanks for the info everyone.

Hey there peeps,
I know this is a long shot but does anyone know of anyone who cannot race after entering?
The reason I ask is I did not enter as I did not think I would be well enough. I suffered multiply slipped discs in my lower back in september. The physio I was seeing spent most of our sessions trying to make me have an epidural, i'm only 23!!
With a hell of a lot of hard work, grit, pain, and determination I am on the mend. I live on this route and I really really want to do this to show everyone, myself and that stupid physio 'specialist' that I can and other people can recover without drugs and injections. It is scary to think that a lot of people see physio's and trust what they say. An epidural or painkillers can make things a lot lot worse sending a pateint into a vicious circle of back pain, and beleive me I know it happens!
Any help with contact info or such like will be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance peeps,
Laura.

Good luck to everyone. Looks like the weather will be on our side.
20/05/2007 at 07:36
Looks like a great day from where I am - Sutton - (hopefully not too hot) - don't forget that, although you can see the finish when you get to the seafront, there's still about 3 miles to go. Save that sprint finish!!
20/05/2007 at 14:19
Does anyone know if theres somewhere online where I can find my race time? I couldn't get it after the race. I know it will come in the Observer this week but I'd love to find out before then. Thanks! : )

Try here a bit later, you all had perfect conditions for it, better than last year's.

Why two chip timing mats?! I thought I'd finished at the first mat (i.e. the start line) and momentarily stopped, losing 2 places and probably about 10 seconds!
Then there was a really bolshy attitude about handing in chips at the end - even before getting water! Not good.
And the km markers were awfully positioned; I only saw about 3 of them.
OK, I'm probably just bitter because I had a disappointing run... but it could have been better, dotcha think?
20/05/2007 at 18:28
My first 10K ever. Great atmosphere and the weather wasn't too warm.
I did find the two timing mats confusing.
At the end of the run, many around me stopped once over the 'start' line thinking that was the finish.
I also thought that being given a medal and having to hand over your timing chip BEFORE getting access to water was odd to say the least. I was gasping for a drink! I'll carry my own water next time.
Anyway, seems I took 56 minutes, a new personal best.
Something to better in next years event.
A Great Morning.
