I've just heard this announced on the radio - anyone know more details of the route etc?

The 10km run will start in Stoke town centre, travelling around the town before moving up through Shelton, Hanley, and Central Forest Park before returning to Stoke. I don't think it will be flat!

Looks like a fairly flat route, apart from the hard slog up Lichfield street

Yes it doesn't look to bad and it should be well supported along the route too. Will you be running it Mr Bozlem?

Just found this post while searching for local events. I'm a complete noobie after only starting running this week but starting to find it addictive!

Do you folks think it'd be daft to go from no exercise at all  to 10k in May or is it quite achievable? I'e managed about 17 miles of walking this week and today done my first attempt at mixing running & walking so quite an unfit git

Hi Mjk, Have a look at this running plan,
01/03/2010 at 13:58
Cheers Eric - from reading that I think I'm going to struggle to get fit enough in time.. maybe next year! LOL

mjk - you will have plenty of time for this race, it will be very friendly and lots of run / walkers.

I'll be entering and I'm currenly only able to run / walk 5k, and if there is a whiff of a hill well, I'll be having a stroll up it!!!!

I've just started a running club for beginners like me, where are you based?

Hmm you recon?

Newcastle (u Lyme of course )

Are you doing the RW 10k training thing then at the moment then? 

03/03/2010 at 18:47


I live in Porthill so every run has a hill or two,so if you follow the plan you will be having a bit of hill training at the same time,

A race that goes right past my front door ,, I can't really say no can I ??
No parking issues either , or arriving too early !!
09/03/2010 at 15:47

Which plan Eric?

09/03/2010 at 19:27

The plan that i have put in a link in earlier post,You can just alter the days and distances to suit,

Speed does not matter for 1st timer,mainly time on feet counts,

09/03/2010 at 19:36
Yes mjk eric is right , it's time on your feet that's the main thing when training for your first event. I'm back a square one too cos of my long term injury coupled with a dash of laziness !!!!
