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!

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
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?
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,
Which plan Eric?
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,
