on run britain! Pretty run-of-the-mill in lots of ways but I always enjoy the atmosphere so I`ve entered early!

Anyone else going to do it?

Yup - me and a couple of my running mates from work are doing it.  Quite possibly my first race after a year of injuries in 2011 so well excited !!

Yep me, this will be my first ever race (started running 3 months ago), has I live locally, I thought it would be ideal. and really looking forward to it!

Brilliant Wolfy!

It was my first ever race in 2009 and I`ve not looked back since. I did 18 races last year. Pop onto the Sheff Social thread in Clubhouse if you need any help or for a chinwag!

This race seems to be described as undulating. Exactly how undulating is it? I mean, there's undulating and there's undulating......

Well there`s an uphill start that you won`t notice too much, maybe for a k, then a long, fast down. After this though there`s a long drag up which must be the best part of 2k. You repeat the down and the long drag up on the second lap. It`s not steep but it goes on a bit so it can be tough. My advice is to go steady on first lap and then you can pace yourself on the second as you`ll know how hard to push on the hill.

Good stuff! Nearly full again!

How did it go for you all? I absolutely loved it! Thought the crowd support was brilliant, the results are on the website, and I did it in 54 mins, which for my first ever race I was happy with. And I can't wait to sign up for my next race! Will definitely sign up for this again next year, ps. The 'hill' got me second time round!

Cracking day, eh! I did it as a tempo run for future races (busy month!) and it went well for me. Great support and organisation. Good luck for future races MW!

I did this too and thoroughly enjoyed it. Second time I've done this one, last year did it as my first ever 10K. Have done a few more and a half marathon since then!

A great day today indeed, fab weather, great crowds and wonderful atmosphere. My 9 yr old entered the fun run too - her first ever run and she loved it too. She was so excited!

Will be back for this one next year...now off to plan out my next few races!

3rd year on the trot for me and I love it ! Live local so was my first event ever in 2010. I have gone on to do a few more and a few half marathons, think mr toe got it right bout the hills. Steady as ya go, keep on running
