A race to enjoy
Go on!! You know you want to really
You probably won't get in on the ballot anyway so whats to loose???
There seems to be quite a lot of you who run this race regularly.
Is it flat enough to test pb's or are there sneaky hills that creep up on you from around the bends?
I'm just wondering incase I need to have an extra Mars bar or 2!
I've got my racepack now so I'm happy - No. 583 I think. I'll be the one at the back.
Looking at the course it looks really nice but those hairpins look a bit hairy, and the comment about watching out for the adders is enough to make sure you don't hang around too long!
Early days yet but the weather looks like it might be OK - we certainly deserve it! I'm fed up of coming back from every training run either soaked by rain or humidity!
For the first-timers, best get yourself into your pace group before the start to minimise the traffic. It's not a fast field compared to races organised by athletics clubs. My guess from last year is that one third will be under 50mins, half under 55mins. Of course if you're a sub-40min person then best camp on the starting line!
Keep the faith - don't worry about the Mars bars, it's a flat course.
Latest forecast for Sunday - sunny intervals and a high of 20 deg - should be quite a bit cooler than that at 9.00am though
Looking forward to this on Sunday.
My son and I will be wearing our Reading FC shirts to hopefully celebrate another win over West Ham from Saturday!!
