Unlike KPO I now CAN enter Sheffield again this year, damn that VLM ballet 

Still, like you say, it is a great race

Sorry to hear you didn't get in Hill1, i think i only managed it this year due to the previous 5 years rejections hence having a guaranteed entry.

Whats the minimum age for the half marathon? Haven't been able to find anything about age catagories...


15/11/2009 at 19:42
I think it is 16 for half mararthon   and 18 for the full mararthon  if you do any full ones
15/11/2009 at 20:04
says on entry form runners must be 17 or over on race day
15/11/2009 at 20:35

well nearly right

did Bransley 10k in 44 mins     good hilly race

just entered - only done Great North Run 3 times....   and a full marathon in March this year which near killed me - i swear never again .... done NOOOOO  running at all since - but need to stay fit and feel like a slob, so half marathons i think i'll be able to get back to.

(bearing in mind when i say i've done 3 - the first i mostly walked - the second i did 50/50 walk/run and only the third one did i do without stopping - time 2 hr 06.  the marathon - totally different ball game in hlly connemara - not recommended for first timers!!!! i got around in just over 5hrs...  (about 100 behind me just..)

 You Sheffield runners.. tell me  abit about the course - is it mostly a roads/flyovers?? whats the best/worst bit of the course?  Which are the killer bits?  And soooo cruel that bit around the stadium at the end ????

not many hills  but great support   at the turnround area    starts and finishes in Don Valley statdium   not many killer bits

Little Whippet - do you know Sheffield at all? If so I can tell you the exact route, but a bit pointless if you've no idea what I'm talking about!

It's pretty flat really though (flat for Sheff anyway) - a couple of little climbs, but overall a quickish course I think.

im in this again just entered after being let down by the vlm ballot and slimmingworld team

their loss is sheffields gain, i say
