I'm thinking about tackling this as my first half. I recently ran 10k, and should have plenty of time to train from August, so I'm sure I'll complete it.

However, I am slow and no matter how much i train I will still be slow. I can run 10k in 77 mins, so I'm guessing about 2:45 for a half.

Is anyone else on here planning to run this race? Does anyone know if there is likely to be a spread of ability of if I'll be running 12 miles on my own? I don't mind being at the back of the pack, but it would be nice if there were others back there with me.

My wife is planning on doing it whilst I do the `full`. She recently did the Sheffield HM (her second) and finished in 2.20 so I reckon there`ll be a good mix.

Im doing it (i think, it is in Oct and the 1st one in years isnt it?)

Looking forward to it having had a lazy year event wise so far.....I planned to do about 6 halfs and a couplke of 10k's but had man flu twice ealy in the year and have only managed the one half so far (reading) but i have the GNR in Sept and the Preston half in Oct booked in.

Bring it on... (give me a couple more months of training 1st thou)

Great, see you there.

Last weekend of October if I remember correctly. The Preson Guild is every 20 years, so I'm guessing that's whaen the last race was too.
