Following the fact that I actually managed to complete my first half in Burnham last weekend...entered into the Bristol half and was wondering whether anyone else is going??

Why don't you come to Theale this Saturday. We can meet by the portaloo!
20/08/2002 at 09:25
Where the hell is Theale?! Besides - are you sure there will be portaloos there? What am I saying - of course, you will have checked that out before you entered the race...

Goes without saying ;-)

Theale is just outside Reading in Berkshire

I'm suprised there seems to be so little interest in Bristol. I may look at that one next year as its an hour down the M4 for us

Is Theale a half too?
20/08/2002 at 09:44
No just a 10K. A bit below you now I guess !!

OOh bitchy! No - it's just that assuming the stiffness in my legs pass before then (still really hurt) I want to do 14 miles this accordance with my NY training plan of course! (How relevant is this chat to my Bristol question?!)

Was meant a little tounge in cheek.

Hope your legs feels better

I'll get off your thread now

Hi New Runner - I'm running Bristol. It'll be my first half marathon and I'm hoping for a time of around 2hrs, although I've been pretty lazy this week and not run much! What kind of time are you aiming to run it in?
20/08/2002 at 14:10
A response! Am hoping to do about 2:10 - would be great to have someone to run at least some of it with though!
20/08/2002 at 14:14
Looks like it's just us! I know a couple of people running it but they're hopeing to do it in 1:30, so will be leaving me behind at the beginning! While I'd be dead happy to run under 2hrs I do think I'm being a little optimistic. Last week a ran 10miles in 1.36 (and couldn't move for the rest of the day), so we'll probably be running around the same pace. Do you know the course at all?
20/08/2002 at 14:25
No idea about the course at all- though have been told it's very flat which sounds good to me!
20/08/2002 at 14:53
flat sounds good!

hey New Runner - it appears there are others in the Bristol 1/2! Have you seen the other thread?
21/08/2002 at 17:18
Hi there.
Can't find the other thread so may be repeating the content. I am running Bristol too as it is my home town. I just checked out the route ( and can confirm its flat. There may be a couple of slopes, but nothing of significance.

Good luck to you both..

3 as far as I'm concerned is officially a group!
21/08/2002 at 20:59
At 2.10 there will be 5 in the group, me and my training partner who has promised she will stick with me.

The limit is 7,000 and its full so I am sure the group will be bigger. However i will look out for you on the day.
22/08/2002 at 09:09
yes, I'll be the one in the shorts and trainers!

I shall keep my eyes peeled, but as to finishing in 2,10 - well we'll see - preparations not going as well as they might - too many hills up my end of town...
22/08/2002 at 14:37
I'm doing it as well, another 1st timer assuming my newly developed knee problem clears up I hoping for about 1:45ish.

Im doing the Bristol Half for the first time aswell!! Am hoping for a time of 2hrs 15....its the first time Ive ran a half marathon so anyone got any advice? How far should I be running now?
