Sounds like a good warm up for BHM, PH?

I shall do the half..done it a couple of times, good course for a good time BUT very quiet for a marathon and a 2 lapper.....I wouldnt !!
12/04/2007 at 12:37
No not at all..I have always managed to get near a PB time there ..

makes note in diary and hopes nothing else clashes

GCR should be the week before

Bearing this one in mind as an alternative, but travel for Limpette and self will be harder to organise.
12/04/2007 at 12:48
No wouldnt have thought you would have a problem entering ..fairly quite as there is a half AND 10k ..run at the same time..
12/04/2007 at 12:48
I do the first lap with you KK then wave good bye !!!
12/04/2007 at 12:48
It wont be bloody quiet if all the abingdon lot turn up here!

could newton abbot cope?

I have GCR half the sunday before and Derwentwater 10 miler the week after so if i go down i think the half would be better, espcially as it is a strong likelihood that i'll be trying for a half PB around Carlisle the week before and again around Derwent lake the week afer for a 1o miler.

Oh now I'm really torn. I'm originally from Devon, but had almost decided to run Abingdon. What to do?
12/04/2007 at 13:05
well, it doesnt look like you CAN run abingdon-so---------------
12/04/2007 at 13:11
I just have this idea that Fetchies and Forumites will club together and rescue Abingdon, and the world will see what a gloriously collaborative community the running world is, and all the non-runners will start running because they're so inspired by us all.

No? Oh alright then.

would be lovely wouldnt it

but they need a locally based course director and water station coordinator

It would be fantastic if such a thing happened.

Must go and study my road atlas.

Of course the other thing is that I did FLM in 2005, Abingdon last year, and doing another one this year would mean that I'll have done one every year since turning 40. Although this sets a dangerous trend it might be fun to find a different location each year.
12/04/2007 at 13:43
why stick at one a year;)
12/04/2007 at 13:46
mmmm, pasties and beer for me and cream teas and scenery for my OH, sounds perfik.

Think this is No. 1 alternative to Abo so far.
12/04/2007 at 13:54
That's a v. persuasive argument KK.
