Did Royal Parks Half yesterday and knocked 10 minutes off my pb after having a terrible run at new forest half. Got a bit of confidence back for Solent half this Sunday. Hope to go sub 1.45 by the time Gosport comes round.

big slow tel, well done on the PB!

no long run for me as I managed to break my baby toe kicking a wall! By accident!

so I decided to swim today, not been for 9 months but managed 90 lenthgs, will see how toe is at weekend for running!

Big Slow Tel

Have you rin Solant Half before and do you know if there's a medal for the finshers?

I'm looking for a half this weekend, and was going to do Swindon but it's closed now.

Trippr - There is also Chichester Half this weekend which appears to still be open. Bit more expensive than Solent though.

Never done it before Trippr, have heard it's reasonably flat with just a couple of hills but don't know about the medal. Entries still available online. i know Chichester takes you up the trundle which is hard to even walk up.

Got my race number today, 4 weeks!

After uhming for a few days over this, I plan on running this one.  Did the Chichester Half this weekend just gone, and I am loving these local (cheaper!) races.

Did it last year.

+ It is a fast course. if you cant do a PB on here, you won't do it anywhere.

- Got to be honest, a lap around the airfield and then some backstreets isnt exactly the most scenic of HM's Ive done.

But cant complain about the organisation it all seemed up to scratch, so if your concern is more about your time than about enjoying the scenery then this is a good one for you.

I've taken the plunge.  I'm in.

Just need to shake off this Tonsillitis...

Hi all

Can anyone tell me if this race is for good runners only? I ran the GSR on Sunday in 1.31 and have done a 12 mile long run so far in my training for next year's London Marathon. So this will be my first half marathon and I plan to take it fairly slowly so will be looking at say 2.10 or so. Will I be last???


29/10/2013 at 10:47

I did it in 2:12 last year, if you google gosport road runners I am sure they have results on there, some at 3 hour point,

you won't be last,

it is a lovely race and its great for a first half, it was my first half and I have done it 4 times, it is a mixture of club runners and people like me

29/10/2013 at 11:33

Results from last year:


Does attract a lot of club runners, but if you can get round in under 3 hours you're not going to be last.

Got my number now, looking forward to it.

29/10/2013 at 12:40

Just entered. Looking for my sub 1:15 for championship spot for London. Hopefully a few other runners to run with specially if it gets windy.

30/10/2013 at 10:02

My number has arrived!

NatB - I will be in the 2:20 to 2:30 bracket so you'll beat me!
