Really hoosie? That would be absolutely great!!! Its a really nice race, very friendly and the funrun and wheelchair thing before the half make it super accessible. Can't praise it enough really. Bit of a long way to go but definitely worth it.

Is it flat?
06/05/2007 at 18:48
i entered it a few weeks ago so i'll hopefully have a nice low number this year

i should beat my time of 2:18 from last year as that was my first ever race, not sure if i'll beat my current PB of 2:05 as i have the Dartmoor Vale Marathon the week after so i'll not be pushing it too hard.

as for is it flat well it is mostly flat with a few points of climbs which you also have to go down so they kind of cancel each other out ;)

i would say the climb back up out of rickerby park at the end is probably the worst spot and its not that long

I'm hoping to be on the first line of the t-shirt Keith!

Yes, that climb back up at the end is a bit of a swine come to think of it, but as you say, not that long.

Get in, its back on the forum thread.

Aye im in again,4th time for me.Cracking half marathon,gets better each year.There were quite a few of us who met up before last years run.
There was a lad called 'Millsy' who organised the meeting point last year.Hopefully he'll be back again and do the honours.
06/05/2007 at 19:11
I remember Millsy - never actually met him though. Yeah, we should all meet up beforehand, that would be great.

Was your thread last year Mick, beat you to it!
06/05/2007 at 19:25
Aye jennsie you beat me to it.Not to worry,just glad its back.

There were a few of us who met up last year opposite the entrance to the stadium.

06/05/2007 at 19:41

06/05/2007 at 19:45
You won't be last hoose - last year there were lots of people slower than me and I'm a snail!
06/05/2007 at 19:46
mm -9 min miling for me these days:o( -Used to do sub 8 years ago.
06/05/2007 at 19:50
got some fat to lose believe me:o-
06/05/2007 at 19:52
9 min mile is still canny.
07/05/2007 at 09:57
I can't run a 9 minute mile Hoose, especially not over half marathon distance! So you'll definitely be in front of me.

I did achieve my goal of a sub-28 minute 5k yesterday though, so go me!
08/05/2007 at 07:32
yippeee! the forum's started. I'm in for this again.get the forms off soon.

Raced yesterday 15k in 1:22 I was really pleased with that so hopefully a good time for this race with more training.
