For those of you who like running events just this side of insanity, the forms for 2005 Grizzly are now online at the Axe Valley Runners website.

See you there?

Hi Creamcake - Time to book our annual meeting! I won't be running in 2005, as Liz (School Runner) will be. Already looking forward to watching...

................ you sadist!!!

Ah yes, 90 minutes. Will look forward to it!

Is School Runner doing Cub or Grizzly? I'm having to content myself with just doing the Cub - working, school holidays, karate etc just don't give me enough time to get the miles in! (At least my karate is improving and I've got my orange belt now!).

See you in 2005!

Cc - Liz has entered the full race along with her running partner from WRN. They may opt for the cub option when the time comes, depending on training, weather, how it's going, etc...

My entry was in the post first thing yesterday,this will be my 5th year and I only hope the weather is better than last year,see you all at the start. If you want a good breakfast or lunch ect,try trotters cafe the food is great.

Am seriously thinking about doing this this year... is it really that bad?!? And if I do do it how good is it for my marathon training?
15/09/2004 at 09:13
Spans, the fact it sells out every year means you've got to be quick, as far as marathon training goes its good sound endurance training, apart from a slightly increased risk of injury (due to the terrain) but as long as you stay within your abilities you should be fine. Treat it as a long slow run.

And don't worry too much if things go wrong before hand as you will easily find someone to snap up your number.

You'll love it!

Spans - Go for it!

Apart from being a great experience, it is also good training. I did it as a long slow run with a fast finish last year - ie 9min/mile until the last 3 when I legged it. This was also good fun as you get to overtake lots of surprised runners!

during a brief bout of insanity my right hand has scrawled details on some sort of entry form, stuck it in an envelope and now my legs have dragged me up the road to post it. But dont worry if you are going to be there, I do have moments of sanity unfortunately they seem further and further apart these days

Here's a tip. Enter the Drogo (7.11.04) and by the time you finish, you'll know what it's like to be half-way round the Grizzly!

in your portfolio, you mentioned you wanted to do 3.15 before you were 50 and "watch this space for the cardiff marathon"---well has cardiff been or are you still waiting?
26/10/2004 at 07:54
Where do I find the details of the Grizzly?

Sorry, should have read the first post properly - entries now closed anyway!
