Yep, I'm in! Finished the Leicester half marathon on Sunday, with a new PB 1:57:35 - only my 3rd since beginning running in January this year. Hoping for a new PB again on the flat surface at this venue

I ran this last year and set a PB.  It's not a very exciting course and after 4 laps it does become a little boring but it is flat and if the wind is light then it has PB potential for sure.  I ran a 1.42 and the following day ran the Gosport Half in 1.48.

Yeah, thought it might get somewhat boring but worth it for the experience if nothing else. Certainly won't manage such a fast time as you Daz!

Not looking forward to the 4 laps at all!

good morning folks!! how are your legs?? not long to go now!!

I am as always on the hunt  for a pb! I did a flat half mara last sunday in peterborough, it was freezing cold and chucking it down with rain for most of the race! I was only 3 minutes out side of a pb, which considering I was a bit hung over and had run a marathon the week before I was really pleased!!

I ran Birmingham last week and it was awful,. I'm 57 now and had hoped to get under two hours but was 2-04. It was so undulating and I couldn't handle it. However, that's why I'm looking for this flat one.


By the way, does anybody know how I would get to the race from centre of Stratford?

I'm going to do it as long as the wife hasn't given birth by then, due on November 27th.

Done my first half in Peterborough last week in 1:42, way quicker than what I thought I was capable of. Will be happy with that again!

I'm considering the 10K

hi LeeH, did you get wet doin peterborough half??

I did it and got completely soaked, although it was flat, it wasnt as easy as it could have been due to the conditions!!! I sneaked in just under 1:45, was running on tired legs and slightly hung over!!! looking forward to this one!!

Does anyone know if you are allowed headphones in this race?


28/10/2013 at 13:46

not sure MatB, most races dont allow them, so would assume not.

Hi NatB

I ran this last year, and no you weren't allowed headphones (not sure why thou?)

As other post say - it is very flat. I did PB last year 2:00:29 - really hoping for sub 2 this year!

To answer a couple of questions earlier in the thread.

I've checked with the organisers and they will be allowing people to wear headphones this year.

The venue is on the Campden Road on the SW side of Stratford. .

Great place for a pb if the weather is good!

not wishing to court controversy, but I am not one for wearing mp3 player while racing, I wear it while training but prefer to soak up the atmosphere of the race, I love to hear the crowds, and like to have a bit of a natter on the way round. Each to their own I suppose.

well folks, just over a week to go........ are we all ready??

08/11/2013 at 17:24

According to the latest RW email, there are 140 of us running the half. Looking forward to it. Hope the weather improves though!!
