Entered this on line via active europe web site a couple of weeks ago and other than credit card being debited not heard anything yet.

Anyone else entered this already and heard anything?

Would also be interested to hear what the course and organisation etc are like from anyone who has run it before.

Did it last year. The course is described as "flat" however there is a bit of a drag out to the turn and the final 1/2 mile felt pretty tough. The rest of it is dead flat. All of the top 10 finishers last year beat 31 minutes, so it is a fast course.

Although I haven't entered it yet it's one I intend doing if the training goes to plan.

Just remembered! The start is pretty disorganised and you will have to push your way to the front as it is quite narrow considering the number of competitors.

I entered about a month ago direct to the organisers and my cheque was cashed soon after. Numbers are sent out closer to the date. You should be OK SIT.

Hi Simon, I've entered online like you and am waiting for my race details.

I think it's flatter than the Barnsley 5k!

They usually send all the race details out together a few days before the race, rather than as people apply.

thats a bit bad as they send sponsorship forms out dosnt give you much time to go around with it

Thanks for feedback. Looking forward to seeing a few of you at the race.
