Some new additions I see! Did Lake v with OS at the weekend and despite a lousy run as he was carrying an injury, he got aa category first. Don't think I'll ever hear the last of it!! Contacted by the organisers today so looks like they've got the pacing sorted out. It's an Asics sponsored event. There'll be an early briefing on the day at 8.20 so I'm going t have to get up early for that one. Hope all going well guys

All going well, getting ready for the trip up North for a certain event.


I just hope the dreaded Sue Barker doesn't use that horrible term "Fun runners" when talking about anyone who isn't in the first 3!

Good God Spike, don't you ever learn.  Have a good one.

Thanks folks!

Looks like someone will be dossing down on Town Moor this weekend! Handy for the start mind!

17/09/2009 at 09:44
Lol - he accepts he's going to have to pay top dollar for somewhere to sleep after driving up on Saturday.

Daz

There are still places at the Innkeeprs lodge at Gosforth.It's about 15 minuutes drive from there to the start,though there is better chance with a taxi on Sunday morning.
Newcastle Uni may still have rooms in Student Halls which they rent out every year as well.Unfortunately I haven't any contact numbers for them.

Hope it helps!

Aaaargh - I think I'm the biggest pratt in Cardiff.  At club last night, told others I hadn't made a decision, but decided I would race and register today.

Had car in garage this morning, so been out most of day, just went online to register and it closed at 1200

However, just phoned helpline, and lady said if I posted it tonight, they should get it on Monday and all should be fine - phew

Cheers for info Spike, but I've only just read so a tad late lol.

18/09/2009 at 17:34
Oh yeah, meant to say I think I saw you out last night h0vis, by Wagon Wheel on Taff Trail, you were running with one other?

 Hi HG...  I may have to join you in the back row for this one.  I seem to be going backwards with my HMs (I have only had  two) 

Having read the times been declared on this thread, I will slink back to the other cardiff thread where the pace is more at my level

HG! Runner "String" bean! Hello Hello fellow Bath Half runners. (In case you have no idea who I am, my forum name was MLC@30).

 Fear not, as I'm running, nobody on this thread needs worry about their time being too slow, my goal is 2:50!

I'm doing this one and also royal parks the week before. A bit of practice in multiple races in a short space of time ready for disney goofy marathon and a half in Jan.

daz........ where is the wagon wheel?

i was on the taff trail, so it was probably me

21/09/2009 at 14:10

The wagon wheel (as we call it) is just where you come out of Hayleigh (sp?) Park heading North, under the Railway Bridge, then the houses are on your left.  The wheel is just before you can turn left following the cycle route betwwen the houses, or you can just go straight on up the road.  A group of us (about 10) were stood there at approx. 1830 on Thurs, and you went past over the brow of the hill towards the Canal entrance? 

Think I also saw you at Parkrun on Sat, I was at about 300m from start on your left hand side, as I was on an LSR and was heading North, so decided to stand aside as you all passed, then I continued.
