I'm going to give it a go.  I won't be breaking any course records, though.

Is there a course map anywhere online for this race?

Hi Matt

Is the course the same as last year? If so and anybody is interested here's my Garmin record from last years run. And I didn't break any records either.

I won't be running this year as I'm doing the Kent Roadrunner Marathon on 1st June

Thanks Fat Matt I can see it, I realise there is plenty of time still and I'm just a bit eager .

Gary Fatbloke thanks for the link, looks like a challenge, just what I like!

It's good to be eager Sharon, you need to be for this race!

Thanks for the link Gary, you still could make it, you'll have 3 weeks to recover and you would have a few miles under your belt, so you would have done most of the training for it! : )

Hi All,

I signed up for this some time back, but now as it creeps closer I'm beginning to wonder if it's a good idea! Did the Warwick HM last week in ~1:45 and that was about the hilliest run I've ever done at only about 150m total elevation.

The "big hill" in Gary's garmin plot looks pretty scary. Can't imagine coping with that if it's either a hot or wet day!

Oh well, it's going to be "hill reps 'r' us" for the foreseeable I think.

Ha ha Matt, you've got me thinking now! You're right in that I would have all the necessary training and will be better prepared than last year. I was thinking of maybe volunteering to marshall if I didn't run.

I quite fancy this, it's local to me - what'sthe terrain like?

23/03/2013 at 14:14

Hi Bokster

It's mainly fields and country paths, have a look here,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2bFpKey-jg for a short video from the 2009 race. It will give you a good idea. 

23/03/2013 at 14:41

Nice video Gary, bit of Orbital always goes down well too . I'm signing up!

05/04/2013 at 18:55

Looks a good run And the results from last year suggests that I probably would not be the last to finish. So I'll sign up.

18/04/2013 at 10:42

I'm in, first ever race at this distance, any recommend a decent training plan?

Hi all

Cheers

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know anyone who would want to buy an entry from me? (willing to discount).

I have to go away for a work trip so I can't do it anymore I dont want to take up a space and I've been told by the race director I can inform them of a change. I have already recieved the race pack but can send this on. Let me know

Thanks

12/06/2013 at 20:51

Fionahog, I would be interested in buying your place, if still available? 

18/06/2013 at 12:45

I'm doing this, wondering if anybody knows what shoes are best? If it stays dry I am thinking my flats will be ok? 

18/06/2013 at 12:46

hi all btw!!
