Come on ladies, you know you want to!
OK. 4 weeks to go so who is up for this one? Nice scenery, friendly marshalls and yummy cakes
Last year one of them had a list and called us all by name
This year he will hopefully know all our names without even thinking Bridget!
pb course for me after running last year........... that marshall was indeed lovely
Think our team was 4th with one of us winning another prize.
Will consider entering, not very fit at the moment & recovering from food poisoning today so that's set my back even further!!!!!!!!
Hi, I was thinking of running this one. Only done one 10k as I'm fairly new to running. I started road running in June, having only previously run on the treadmill. Have another 10k race coming up at end of November but can't wait until then feel like I need to do another race before then. Yes I am already addicted!
How would you rate this rate for newbies? My best 10k so far in training is 57 mins.
Hi Jo, you'll find this one of the friendliest races around. It's a lovely rural, quiet course with very encouraging marshals and newbie or not we welcome everyone!
I'll be on the late entries desk before the race if you want to come and say Hi.
Thanks Helen, sounds good. I think I will enter, just need to check if my in-laws can babysit, husband has work comitments.
I'd be lying if I said it was completely flat, there's a few undulations but nothing too bad.
There'll be plenty of friendy faces around the course from the marshals and those of us running.... and cakes at the end so for a first race it'll be a good one!
Hope to see you there, come and say Hi before the start.
As Helen says it undulates occasionally but nothing that I would describe as a hill. Nice scenery through the villages/hamlets as well.
Plus as already said we're a friendly lot at our club
Any particular reason that 50% of the population are excluded?
I prefer events which welcome everyone.
Good point Wilkie!
This is the third year of this race so it's still very new. It's not that we wanted to exclude 50% of the population, more that we wanted to promote ladies running in the local area.
We do organise two other races in the year- the Chardon 5k in May and the Andy Reading 10k, on 9th December this year, which are open to everyone
Hi Guys, we sponsor this event along with the running club who put the event on. looking forward to seeing loads of you there....entries are comming in thick and fast but there are still places available.
in response to Wilkie's post womens running is a massively growing area and we are happy to support it, a lot of the ladies who enter this race would not enter mixed races as they feel intimidated by the some of the male runners. I see it as a good thing and I am all in favour of promoting something a little new.
hope you will enter the Andy Reading 10K
