Kicked It - just attended PLS 10K give out Goody Bags we donated.

 Generally speaking it's great to see the profile of marathon running being raised beyond London. Hopefully we can add to that next year. Well done to everyone committing to Chester, I'm sure it will be a big success judging by the many positive comments on RW.

JP - your determination is inspirational. Two in two weeks!!

Just pre-registered - brilliant.

The good news is that the route passes through Wales, as I am aiming to complete a 'six nations' of marathons.

Already done England (Nottingham), Scotland (Loch Ness), Ireland (Dublin) and Italy (Rome), so once I've done Chester I need only concentrate on Paris!

Not run a marathon for 7 years.  The Chester Marathon  2011 comes only weeks after my 40th birthday so it's a great long-term target to aim for .

 416 days seems a long way off but i'm going to need most of that to shift the weight and get active again.  This race could really change my life.

On Sunday 10th October we are hosting a launch training run around part of the course starting and finishing at the Chester Racecourse - All are welcome - There will be a choice of runs to suit everybody from a run-walk 3m to a 6 mile run route for those who already have a good training base.  Meet us at 9am at the Chester Racecourse and stay to join us for a coffee and chat afterwards.

Any questions leave a post & I will come back to you.

More information on the 2011 marathon is on the web site

A great turn out for the traning run this morning, Perfect weather, scenic routes & good company - its much more fun when running with a group. 

Thanks everyone - looking froward to the next group traning run on Sunday 5th December.  As today there will be 3, 6 & 9 mile options.  Keep an eye on on the training page of the race web site for more details.

p.s.  There are three forum threads running, suppose it makes sense to converge on one - why not all post on the MBNA Chester Marathon thread which is linked to the  race listings.

Hi Nathalie Rees - do you still have your ticekt available ?

 If so and you are certain you don't want to run, I will gladly take it off your hands and will run like the clappers to get a good time in your name.

 Great - I will send you a message asking for all your details so we can change my entry for the marathon with your details and you'll get a good time in your name.

Registered for this one and looking forward to it now most of the training is done!

I'd also registered for Liverpool but with the whole fiasco with lack of sports drinks on the water stations I decided I couldnt take the risk of going against both my training methods and the theory behind them. I haven't written anything abusive about the situation as i'm sure a lot of effort has gone into that event but with a sub 3hr time in my sights I don't want any worries on race day! I've suffered in previous races and training runs due to poor nutrition and it's not going to happen again!

Very much looking forward to running around Chester very soon!
