The 5km race this year has been opened up to club athletes for the first time and has a prize structure

In the 10k race, the second water station at Turks Lane will return 

 Hall and Woodhouse -Badger Beers- will have the beer tent open early

How many laps is the 10k run?
27/02/2008 at 13:22

2 laps both the same route quite flat  its my PB course anyway

It's a very good race. Done it lots of times. My only gripe is that it starts at 2pm (at the beginning of June!!!!).

gb - flat apart from the bridge at the start of the lap and the incline over the far side of the park.......

Well OK ---ish

the course record is 29.09 so it cant be that bad   

as for the 2pm start we dont have any choice logistically because of the childrens races in the morning we couldnt ask 1,000  8-12 year olds to run in the heat however the adults can make an informed choice.

Last year we added a second water station which helped enormously St.Johns had no heat realated problems at all

Fancy it again this year Womble??? Badger beer tent

29.09, I think I can beat that

For the first lap any way

I'm in and so is my hubby

I've already posted off my entry - over three weeks ago

And yes, I know about the children's races and yes the new water station is spot on. I'll be there.

Fincher, I judge how well I'm doing from year to year as to how close I am to the leader ...... them at the end of the second lap and me the first.

Womble - I'm currently not running but have done this twice. Each time it was a point of pride to finish the first lap before the winner crossed the finish line, but it was a close call

I'm in for this one.
28/02/2008 at 13:07
Everyone come and find me on the day it would be great to meet you all

I cannot do this one now.

I will try the Southampton 10k in May instead ( I hope that has a beer tent).

Good luck everyone

I'm doing this. I think I am the only person that actually likes afternoon races. All my training is done in the evening and I can never run well first thing in the morning. The heat is an issue but I don't mind. A good idea is to wear a camelbak if you really struggle with the heat.

Online entry to the 5k is now available
14/04/2008 at 17:45

We're not going to be around on the day, Goldie, so wish you all the best for another successful day.

Lol at the camelbak suggestion - it's only 19k, surely carrying that would make you sweat more with the weight I'm sure it's a good idea really if you do have a problem with heat and are not looking to go as fast as you can.

 I've done this race a few times and never done good due to the heat, but its a nice course and i'll be there again his year.
