Has anyone done this race? I heard that it is a bit hilly?
03/05/2006 at 18:21
started it a couple of years ago but had to drop out due to injury but don't recall any hills and did go to school in the village. there's a lot on disused rail track (so like a gravel path) which can feel a bit strange if you're not used to it.

very friendly organisers though :o)

Almost completely flat - majority of race is run along the dis-used railway track which is predominantly hard-packed mud (as opposed to the gravel suggested by MOAT)

It's a really good race - not too big.

p.s. I ought to declare I have a vested interest as it is organised by my club!

i'm sure i remember gravel!!

tis a good race tho i have to agree :o)

I can't find anything on the website http://www.cranleighrunners.com - I'm planning to enter and would like to walk through the course before race day.

Simbil,

I've put the route into gmap (see link below).

I'll put this onto the Club website also... if you want to enter just use a universal entry form, although I'll talk to the race organiser next time I see him and ask him to get the proper form up on the website.

Cheers for the info.

Think I'll have to enter this one.

There is something about running down a disused railway track that appeals to me. I don't know why though!

Maybe I am just a bit weird like that!
Just so long as it is flat I dont mind.

Does anyone know if there is there anything for my wife and the kids to do whilst I am running?
15/05/2006 at 11:42
A65 - Depends on the age of your kids.

There is a playground at the far end of the field (300yds) from the start line with the usual array of swings, climbing frames etc.

Alternatively, the Leisure centre is also adjacent to the start area, so they could all go for a swim.

If that all sounds too energetic, the high street is also very close by, so they could just grab a cup of coffee and watch the world go by.

Rocks-
Thanks. They will probably do all 3 knowing my 2!
My daughter (10 by then) will have run in the kids 3k earlier so she may just want to chill out. Then again.......

Does anyone know where I might find the results from last year.
I am getting worried that I might be last home in this event!
I am aiming to get round in about 60 mins.
18/05/2006 at 16:35
I have the results in a word document. In summary:-

2005
Finishers - 220
Winning time - 36:44
Last finisher - 84:50

A finish time of 60 minutes would have put you 180th.

Any other q's let me know.
18/05/2006 at 20:05
That is fantastic news.
It's not that I am paranoid about coming last (someone has to) but this is my first 10k and I don't want to be scared for life by the experience ;o)

is 36 mins a little slow for a winning time over 10k? is this a slower than average course?
19/05/2006 at 08:10
A65,

I'd agree that 36 mins is relatively slow for a winning time, but don't think the course itself is particularly slow. It's just a relatively small race which, because it is off-road, probably does not attact the "serious" athletes.
19/05/2006 at 13:13
Even better!

I am looking forward to it again now.
Though I did note your rather luke-warm review from last year.
19/05/2006 at 13:56
Flippin' 'eck - I was a bit indifferent wasn't I!!! Don't tell anyone at the club or they'll lynch me!

That review was a couple of years ago... I have a much more positive perspective on it now.
19/05/2006 at 15:37
OK Rocks, your secret is safe with me ;o)
