Entries are open today for next 24 hours for those who pre-registered an interest on the website - I received an email with a link to the entry a couple of hours ago. £46 seems steep but them so do a lot of the bigger city HM's. I don't need the 'free' T-Shirt, but the music is of more interest to me
The blurb suggests there are 19,000 running
Race entries for October arent uncommon - all of my races in October are already open and either full or pending.
@Gem - take a look at the events section on here for a list of HM in October - there's lots in October from my memory - i'm running one nearly every weekend :/.If you're looking for something a bit different - I can recommend Cologne!
Some friends of mine did one Run to the Beat, and they haven't gone back for a second.
The promised music largely didn't materialise - because it rained, I think? Don't remember.
I've done Amsterdam twice, that was a nice race. And Amsterdam is a nice place for a weekend
Also, you don't need to scramble for places, you can enter at leisure. Although I think it is open.
Windsor's in the first week of October and is easy to get too from London plus is a late start at 1 so no rush to get there, so can get the train there and back. About an hour into waterloo so an option?
I did RTTB in 2010 and I enjoyed it. The course was short last year though, but it seems to be becoming harder to screen out organisers where that is a risk.
Ealing HM will be also be held for the first time this year, I think that's October.
...was bitten by this in its first year and haven't been back since to find out whether it's improved....
in favour and against:
1. It is a "big city" marathon with crowds at some point of the course, although parts of it are fairly quiet...with approx 8,000 runners which gives you a sense of a big event...
2. It's fairly overpriced and a dull course and with much cheaper and better organised events local to london for the same distance are on offer....you might feel a bit pushed financially...
TBH: The inagural year heavily promoted and relied on the use of the O2 as a "base" for runners which transpired to be a load of nonsense there was no reciprical arrangement with the O2 and I believe it was this type of misleading information that led people to lose faith in the event not the transport issues and delays which were obviously out of their hands...
I have a torn my muscle so I cannot run this event now..
One place now available. Entry was £46. Contact me if interested. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Event starts and ends at the O2 in North Greenwich on October 28th.
