As I've come down with the lurgy and can't now do Stebbing  thought I'd enter a race for next year.

So who else???

That`s a shame. I hope you get better soon.
Was opting for Stebbing too but opted out and going to do a long run.

Great Bentley 1/2. Will enter for this one too as long as all the entries don`t get snapped up.

very true. i am a little concerned that from the end of the november to the beginning of jan training could be harboured by xmas parties/events/drinks and such like just got to stay strong and focused to achieve

Hey you're using that as an excuse , I know what you mean but you have to work around it. 

Where are you based?

i know its a terrible one but i already have every friday and staurday booked with a party or get together of some sort - night mare. just joined the local club so am really hoping that will give me a kick up the rear end and hopefully if any of the others are doing it a chance for motivation

Harwich - yourselves?

Harwich are hosting the 1st XC race on the 15/11 are you taking part, I will be against my better judgement tho

Afternoon all. I've just signed up for this. Will be using it (along with the Benfleet 15 and Brentwood Half) as a tune up for the Brighton Marathon.

Anyone done it before? If so, what's it like? 

06/11/2009 at 16:45

Yep done it before and it should be a pb course very flat - can also be bleeding cold.

Why you not doing the local marathon like me

To which marathon do you refer Tired Legs?

I just been on the GBRC website for their half marathon.
On-line entry only. Are they giving up on Mr postie?
No ipods, MP3s or similar devices or face disqualification. This will be very interesting.

Hi guys i live in the area so will be having a go at this one myself Hope places are still available.

This will only be my 2nd half race but intend on a new p.b, did Frinton/walton half in may 1 hour 46 mins. This one is ment to be fairly flat and fast from last years results !!!!

12/11/2009 at 23:59
I too have entered. Now hoping that I stay injury free and get the training in. Good luck everyone!
13/11/2009 at 01:00

I may give this one a try if i can keep away from injury....

Essex Eagle - Halstead in May, alway a good turn out from the locals and very well organised.

 For Info on those thinking - in the first week they had 150 entries, this is a popular races as it fits in with mosts peoples marathon training.

Muppley - won't be a XC as something else has cropped up, but there should be a few from my club doing it, good luck as you're the first in the league think we're doing the last this year.

the entry`s are still coming in fast with just under 600, so if you don`t want to be dissapointed better get your entry`s in soon as we expect to fill the race before the deadline

I've just entered, only 30 minutes from me so easy to get to.  Ran this 2 years ago, flat and fast though the wind can whip across the fields in February.
