any tips on the easiest way to get to this from Central London?
I have registered for this race back in December however dont think I have received any information about his run. Do we get numbers, maps etc? I'm sorry I'm very new to the world of running and dont really know what to expect!
I hope you can help!
Shida - I haven't received anything either but am just going to chance it and turn up! There is a phone number 07969 533 124 for the course organiser if you want to double check.
p.s. normally you do get something in the post, general info and a race number. I haven't been to this one before so not sure how it operates.
thanks catherine! I'm just going to shimmy along and hope for the best!!
good luck !!
It does say somewhere that you pick up your race number on the day. If you are in then you'll appear on the list on F3's site.
In November I entered on the day and walked straight to the front of the 'on the day entries' queue. Conversely, the queue for the pre-entered runners who were picking up their numbers was really long!!!
And, for anyone questioning whether the route is 10k (5k) or not, I G-mapped the track around the lake and made 1 lap equal to 4.94k (so it's 60 metres short per lap). However, I can't quite remember if they pushed the finish line slightly 'back' to make up the distance if you know what I mean?!

Well if you want someone to show you around the course - I'm your man...
See you on Sunday, x
Let me clear up the question on whether it is accurate.
I wrote to them and asked exactly this question. It is not officially measured by BARR or any indepentant body. They themsleves have measured it using GPS, so it is only officially 10k according to themselves.
I am sure it will still be a good race, but don't rely on it being the exact length
Ber careful about the phrase Officially 10k, it is not. But is it around 10k in length
Pics are now up and live on www.antbliss.com - just search by your race number.
