I like the look of this event.  Gives me a chance to stretch beyond half-marathon as part of my marathon training for December.

Also, as I'm not getting any quicker, it gives me a chance of a PB - can't be bad!

Looks like I might win it then!!  I'm the only entrant

I'm thinking about this but my longest run so far has been a half marathon so am a little scared!!

Hi Kate - i'm feeling a little that way as I'll only have run up to half-marathon recently.  Hoping the last 3 miles are downhill

02/10/2012 at 08:24

it seems a big increase but I guess its only 5k. I will sign up today (probably!!!!) Good luck )

thanks Kate...

Does anyone know the closing date for entries

I don't John sorry.

It still seems to be open. Quite tempted to do this- can't do the Great South Run on account of train strikes and logistics, something on home turf is a good compromise.
Is this the first London Kilomathon?

I think it started in 2010 Anna

Did a bit of homework - I thought I'd seen it advertised before, but it was pulled before it happened last year. Have registered though, so am definitely in

Good luck Anna - fingers crossed for a good run

17/10/2012 at 08:05

Good luck to you too Am going to use it to gauge recovery after this years marathons.

You feeling ready?

17/10/2012 at 11:08

I think so - quite pleased with my recent half-marathon and 10m races. 

How about you?  when was your last marathon?  I've entered the marathon in Portsmouth on 23/12 and I did Rome in March.  Been a bit lazy over the summer though

17/10/2012 at 11:29

I did Chicago last Sunday, and Berlin the Sunday before that, so having a bit of a rest now

Reasonably pleased with my recent half marathon time (Great North Run). Will be hoping to better my marathon time for London next year though. Kilomathon distance seems ideal to maintain the training distance rather than get lazy (which I have the potential to do easily!) and have to start from scratch again....

Wow - a good rest needed there then!!

It is def too easy to get lazy....

This thread's rather quiet...

I'm doing this race next Sunday.  I've done four HMs so this seemed like the next step. Training hasn't been great though.  I've done a fair few 12-13 LSRs but nothing more than that.  I'm really nervous about those last 3 miles but I have no time target in mind and am thinking I can walk the last bit if necessary. Hopefully adrenaline will keep me going on the day.  How's other peoples' training going?  And also, I have never used fuel on any run- training / races.  But am wondering if I should consider it over this distance?  What are the rest of you doing?

Hi Nessie

I'm in the same boat as you really.  Did a couple of HMs recently, and a few runs up to 10m but will get round eventually.

I wouldn't change your fuel strategy at this point. Stick with what you do in training.

Good luck on Sunday -

Just looking at the entry info.  I can't believe they are charging runners to be shuttled between the finish and start  If they have designed the course that way you should get a free shuttle, or start and finish the race in the stadium.  Just another way to extract more money out of people!

22/10/2012 at 21:22
Classic GSi I'm afraid. They organise the Edinburgh marathon and are finding new ways yearly to get as much money as possible out of participants and spectators. Lets hope the organisation is a little better for this race...
