Yeah, that's a good point. Just how many laps of Victoria park is it anyway?
27/04/2005 at 11:47
I've entered now!!

Last year there were three laps but not round the entire park. We started further back to make up the extra 1k as the laps were about 3k.

You do get a map of the running area before hand so it's handy for a practise!

Three laps , very flat,you pass a water station at the start of each lap.Just hope they set the 3k race after us, a 30 min delay last year.

Lost mine last year and had to register again on the day, but was no hassle, probably why I am doing it again.

i still have not reg yet,having second thoughts about it.

Patrick are u doing any training at the moment? If so. U will be fine for July 31st
13/05/2005 at 09:57
doing training 3 days a week only on the treadmill need to to some outdoor training which i plan to do soon,new to running still a novice

Ok. Outdoor running is completely different to treadmill running so make sure u have the correct running shoes for outdoors as these will reduce the chance of injury. The London Marathon Store in Covent Garden is a good place to start, although there are several specialist running shoes dotted around London.

Don't panic everyone just an email from Antoinette and there's no time limit so I'll be at the back bringing up the rear as it will be my first race and I'm still a fair bit overweight.
But I'll plod along and finish (hopefully)

Hey superGran you will be o.k.
The main thing is you are running,whatever speed you do is great.
Just remember paula radcliff had to have a first race at sometime.
It is flat no hills, and their will be other runners the same as you, doing their first race.
I remember my first race 2 1/2 years ago i thought i was out of my depth but other runners gave me support and i not only got through it but did more races.

Richard
Thanks for the encouragement, I'm really glad it's flat. I know I will enjoy the race but I'm still a bit worried as can only train early morning and so far have never ran at 11.30am. Do you think this will make any difference?.
16/05/2005 at 22:26
SuperGran
No i dont think it will make a difference,
99.9% of my training is late afternoon or early evening.
Nearly all the races i enter are 10 or 11am starts.
Treat yourself to a long lie in on the day,then you will fool your body into thinking it is another early run!!!!!

Supergran, It won't make any difference at all, just make sure you have breakfast and drink about a pint of water when you get up then you'll have plenty of fuel for the race and won't get dehaydrated.
18/05/2005 at 08:15
Thanks for the advice I'll give it a go
18/05/2005 at 09:01
I think that I have entered, at least i hope I have! Will be my first race after 2.5weeks on holiday so it will be interesting to see if the long taper helps!!!
