Anyone doing either or both of these?

Myself and a friend of mine are doing the 10k.

If you are interested the details are on

Hi Caz.

I'm doing the half as part of my club's Grand Prix event.

Did the 10K last year - it's a loop circuit round the houses, a few gradients but nothing too serious, ending up in the park.

See you there.


p.s. I'll be fully suited and booted.

Hi Snoop, glad to hear it's not too hilly, I'm not familiar with the route.

See you there.

Hi all

Yes I hope to do the 10K as I don't think I'll be ready for the half marathon but still would like to meet others.

Hi VR, hurrah another kent person! I'm nowhere near ready for a 1/2 marathon either.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Hi all.
When I get my number I'll let you know it.
I ran the Tunbridge Wells 10K and met Scotty, it was SO nice to meet someone from the forum.

Hi VR, how did you get on? A friend of mine run it and said it was very hilly! I hope the Maidstone route is kinder, hills aren't my forte.

Got my race details yesterday and am doing the Half Marathon (No. 155) so long as my newly acquired knee injury doesn't play up.
Will be a make or 'break' run as far as my first marathon the following week is concerned.

Hope to see some of you there.

I'm doing the 10k and the 1/2m.

See you all on the day.

Has everyone got their numbers yet?
17/09/2002 at 16:04
Yes I have, it's 525. (10k)

Mine was posted on the 6th. What number are you ? might not recognise you from your ickle photo (unless of course you are dressing up as the Soup Dragon !)

I haven't run this before. Snoop says that the 10K is flat. How easy/tough is the Half ?
17/09/2002 at 16:14
I don't think the 10k is all that flat, the first half looks like it goes up the London Road which is a long slow hill for part of it. I haven't seen the route for the half.

Scotty H

I'll be wearing my URWFRC vest, and I'll post a bigger picture (minus the clanger/soup dragon) to you can recognise me :-)

Still waiting on my number to come.

I haven't run either race before, but with Snoop being a local he should know Unless he's pullling you leg Scotty.

I'll be wearing my URWFRC vest as well, it's debut outing.
17/09/2002 at 16:57
Oh pants, I feel like I'm missing out now. As a local I did the Tunbridge Wells 10k. Hills confirmed. Would do the Maidstone but have a baby due that day. Good luck to all you Kent runners.
17/09/2002 at 16:58
Neilruns, good luck with the birth of your baby!

Don't let a little thing like that stop you turning out N... give the missus an epidural to speed it up, then haul ass down to the start.

No 129 for the half - will be wearing my Dartford Road Runners vest as it's a Grand Prix event - will have UFRWFC vest on at Windsor next week... catch you all there.

Snoop. If nothing's happened by Sunday I might grab my trainers and turn up anyway. Maybe if she gets a good noseful of testosterone and honest sweat it'll kick start the labour. I can only do sex and curries for a limited number of days.

Number 1046 (combined race).
Suffering with slight flu at the moment, but I hope to be there Sunday!
