Morning all,

Yes, I know it's early, but entries have now opened for the Reading Half Marathon.

2nd March 2004 (a week early this year!), new course, new start, new finish. Faster and flatter. All sounds good to me - let's hope this fixes some of the problems of yesteryear.

So, we going to have another large forum presence at this one?

The website says that it is taking place on the 7th March, which is the same date as the half marathon at Silverstone. Divide and conquer I guess.

I've entered.

so what date is it? Now very confused!!
23/10/2003 at 10:11
It's the 7th Spans

Er, yeah, 7th March is that I meant. Well the keys are very close together...

Sod Silverstone as far as I'm concerned (personal opinion there, don't shout at me).

Running round a flat windy race track in the middle of nowhere or running round Reading with is many and varied spectators, comfy hotels and nice restauants.

Tough call, NOT :-)

Any way I'm interested to see if they cock the start up at Reading again.

thanks venom

just entered this through the website as silverstone was an absolute nightmare last year for the traffic getting in and out and the course is very very very boring

I don't whether I will do this one or not this year as I am doing Bath the following week so will need to do a long run instead... however I might come and support... will decide this weekend!

Spansy, spansy, spansy...

23/10/2003 at 10:39
but it won't work with my training... but I will think about it... are you sure you are fast enough to race me though?!
23/10/2003 at 10:43

Oh... I'm sure ;)

excellent new course - though I won't be able to walk to the start this year! flat for the last 4 miles great!

Yes please Fraggle :-)

I'm going book my place at the holiday Inn too.

I hopefully will be going for my sub 2hr as I didn't get in to Bath :0(

I might wait to see whether RW put the Sutton Park 20-mile training run on the same day as they did this year. If not, I'll be there.

from what I recall of comments on this forum after both the last two years at Reading, and 2003 at Silverstone, both were subject to severely delayed starts and othe problems.

why bother with either then when there are so many other smaller but well orgainsed club halves at that time of the year?
