I've just entered. I do we get more than 10 on this race - that's how many runners I see when I'm on a long training run.
We have 250 entries to date, so we do expect to be full before race day. Hope the weather is like it was this weekend - glorious!
Sounds as if I applied just in time. Are there any dodgy bits to look out for? e.g. very narrow sections or bits to clamber up and down by the locks? If you've got it all down in the race packs then I'll be happy to wait until I receive it.
I really look forward to it - I opted for this instead of Marlow. The thought of running a "flat" half-marathon is quite appealing to me having done the Wycombe and Berko this year.
You'll be pleased to hear that flat it most definitely is!
Yes, there are some (very nice!) locks to run through and some parts are narrow, but all in all it really is a lovely run with a great finish in Cassiobury park. The race pack will give you more details and obviously there will be signage and marshals helping you on your way.
I hope you enjoy it - let us know how you found it afterwards ....
what is your maximum capacity? I'm not sure yet whether i can make that date so was wondering how long I have to make up my mind!
Hi Ruth - Maximum capacity is 300 ....
I'll be travelling from Oxford,parking at finish,cycling my road bike to start then hopefully remembering where bike is after i've finished to collect it...anyone up for a bike warm-up with me?
Ah go on...i need help with the map!
Thats a pre-race peloton of...1 then!
Hmm my first tri...great idea if a little unhygienic
Anyone driving from London area? Prefer to not rely on public transportation.
Ok i just booked this one Did the half in march so should be ok,
Don't let hills put you off a race .. i used to but i have now conquered that fear,the trick is to just go out and have fun and enjoy..
This will be a nice race whatever the canal surprise's us with, and crossing that line is far more important than putting yourself under too much pressure ..
See you there folks
"the trick is to just go out and have fun and enjoy"
Indeed. Whether you do it in 1hr 15 or 2hrs 30, it's still a pretty good investment in your health.
Which is my excuse when I say I'm too old and creaky to go chasing pb's anymore
I'm only an out-of-towner, but it looks to me from the Transport for London website http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravelnews/realtime/tube/track-closures.pdf that the Metropolitan underground Harrow-on-the-Hill to Watford is replaced by a bus service. Still OK, I think, to get to the start by going to Uxbridge, but any underground travel to or from Watford will in fact be by bus.
It will be good to get past the hassle of getting there and start running a nice flat 1/2 marathon!
