Thanks for the runkeeper route ross - I was looking for an elevation profile and that looks right up my street with PB potential
Weather looks reasonable at the moment - 16C and sunny intervals.
Really looking forward to this now, need to investigate the parking situation!
Thank you very much for the parking advice, will get there early so I can see what the official site is like but will check out cherry orchard too
Looks like it will be a nice day for it really looking forward to it now - what sort of times are people going for I'm hoping for around 1h 50
I am hoping not to come last!! I did MK half marathon mid March in 2 hours 8mins but haven't really run over 7miles ish since (have a couple of times, but not with any regularity or structure really!!) so just hoping to get round.
I was in two minds as to whether I should do it, but I think I would like to have a go and as long as I don't have a time in mind and am just happy to get round it sould be ok???
Hoping it's not too windy or too hilly....my flat is different to other people's flat!!
Looks like the official photos are online : http://www.runner-photos.co.uk/rpEventSearch.asp?RaceID=LHM11
Thought this was a fantastic event, really well organised & great value for money.
Mine and my brothers first half marathon & i finished in 1:43:59 which i was really happy with (was aiming for under 1:45)
One thing i don't really think makes sense, is why the overall positions are generated from the 'gun time' and not peoples chip times? just wondered.
Well done on a fantastic event, will definately be there next year.
one question....only just signed up to the site, tried to add a profile pic but it wont let me?? i seem to be doing it right but the pic just doesn't upload?
Jay, Good run, that's a good time for your first.
The timing is due to UK Athletics rules where chip times don't count toward official standing. Therefore your official time is the gun time. Obviously when it comes to larger events then there's always a delay for getting everyone over the line so on a personal level your chip time is more accurate and that's why most events offer chip timing now.
Thanks Ross just wondered if thats the way it's always done.
