Is anyone doing this one?
I'm doing it for a first time and would be interested in people's thoughts and experiences?
I'm aiming at 1.45, my previous bests were Haweswater and Sheffield in 1.46.
To all RUNNERS
Just Becareful another Event will be on Sunday as Grantham Canal from Grantham to Cotgrave(Nott)there start 9.30am onwards.Surely Gratham Athletics feedback with Rory Coleman?
This is my fourth year in a row I'm running the Newton's Fraction and I must say I'm really impressed with the much improved information I received when I entered this year's run! The emails I receive following my entry are also interesting and really help build up the excitement to the event too.
I hope that the day lives up to the build-up and I can break 2 hours!
Weather seems ideal for running at the moment.
Thanks for the compliments Nick.
We must be doing something right if this is your fourth visit to our race. We now have an enthusiastic race committee in place which wants to put on a first class event for the Road Running community at a sensible price. We haven't got it 100% right in the past, but we have listened to what competitors have told us. We are therefore confident that this will be the best Fraction yet - yes I am putting my head above the parapet on that one.
The weather forecast is cool, but bright and fine - so you are going to have a good running experience.
A big thank you to all at Grantham AC for the excellent organisation. A great race made even better by perfect weather.
As for the hills not being too bad - I beg to differ!
FAO Richard Bulmar - thanks for the kind compliments - never forget - you are a proper athlete
dorunning The instinct to run is born into all of us and is something we can all experience. Running takes us outside and sets us free. It doesn't have to be against the clock. You can run easy. Remember, there are two types of people... those that run and those that should. So be yourself, hold your head up high and take pride at being out there. Be the inspiration to those who may follow and help to tell the simple message...
dorunning...you are an athlete
Thanks so much for all those involved in organising. You certainly have some contacts in high places to sort the weather out like that! Really lovely course. Amazing scenery. I had a fab time and really enjoyed it although it was only mind over matter that kept me running on those hills!
Facilities were good - plenty of loos at the stadium (very improtant). Liked the finish on the track as you knew therefore that al least that bit would be flat!
This was my 3rd half marathon and I managed to beat my personal best by 20 minutes despite the hills (proof that training properly actually works - why didn't I think of that before!). I enjoyed it so much that I'm seriously considering a marathon which, if you'd told me that a few months ago, I'd have said you were crazy!
