Hi, I am running this one on 22nd September, its near to Colchester, apparently it is quite a fast course, anyone else fancy it?

Comeon someone else must be running this one, or will I get the trophies all to myself!

How flat is it?
Flat with hills or flat as in flat?

oops, hi Pizza man, i must have missed your message the other week, Lyn and Fozzie drove the course yesterday and say that it really is reasonably flat, there is a downhill and uphill in the 2nd km, and a slow climb at about 7km, otherwise very flat, and judging by last years times very fast too....

Fancy it?

I would love to do it NN but have had my pass taken away & will not be able to travel, so I'll have to stay local on the 22nd. I was realy looking forward to a flat 10k before the end of the year, just to see what I'm capable of. Never mind.

Hows it going for Windsor? I see from the uphill downhill thread that you're simalar to me. I'm abit worried about how "undulating" it is. Still on for sub 1.30?

I believe that the only "real" uphill is in the first mile along the Long Walk, so it shouldnt be too bad, especially as the last mile will then be downhill!

A sub 1:30 is certainly on, I tend to go off a bit quick and hang on towards the last few miles, are you good at pacing or do you run similar to this?
16/09/2002 at 10:08
That's me exactly. I don't know how fit i am at the mo' so I'll just have to see what the god of running has in store for me. I'll make a sacrifice on the morning of Windsor to try & gain his/her favour.

That last mile sounds like fun, lets hope we've got enough left to realy pelt it .

I feel at about 95% at the moment, so as long as I feel like this on the day then I am sure that sub 1:30 will happen. We are planning on getting there for about 10.30am so will be very relaxed by the start of the race.

I look forward to the two of us pushing each other towards maybe a 1:28 with a nice sprint finish also :)

Am not too sure about being able to see the finish from 1.2 miles away, that will be strange!

Superb, got my number through this morning, after last nights 5km PB I am really looking forward to this one.

Well done on the 5k PB, and good luck with Langham and Windsor. I'll be doing the Ingatestone 5 on Sunday so will not be able to make Langham.

Also I have just noticed that I have the first 5 mile Metropolitan x/c race the day before Martleshamj, so that looks very shakey at the moment.

I noticed on your website that you also have some Suffolk based x/c races. Are these open to anyone and are they part of a series?

All the best

Lamb is doing this race, although she has no acccess to the forum at the moment.

All the best to everyone in this race tomorrow, including, Lyn, Fozzie, Lamb, SlowButSure, and of course to myself :)

Just logged on to send you an email NN so had a quick look at the forum while I'm on and saw this thread.

I aim to be there tomorrow but have been a bit sniffly today. I'll make a final judgement in the morning but should be ok.

Looking forward to it - good luck to all

Well, what an excellent result for us all, havent got the official times yet but we all got PBs, somewhere in the region of the below times,

Nattynoodle 39:17
SlowMike 46:25
SlowButSure 48:26
Fozzie 48:30
Lyn 50:25

Unfortunately Lamb was not able to make this race in the end.

I think it would be fair to say that we are all very happy, and will be off out down the pubs later :)

Well done to all, and it was great to meet you at last Mike.

Lets see what we can all do at Martlesham 10km in 3 weeks time!
22/09/2002 at 18:22
Well done one all, congrats on your PBs.
22/09/2002 at 18:39
Good warm-up for the Windsor half next weekend too
22/09/2002 at 20:06
Official times now in at the scaa website. 46:26 for me. Well pleased with that.

Excellent race I thought. Well organised and even an unexpected memento!

Nice to meet you at last NN and SBS. Nice to meet you too Lyn and Fozzie.

See you at a future race. Still aiming to do Martlesham but I have a clash of dates since we spoke this morning with a christening. I need to work around this somehow but not sure how yet.
