So you still have 264 places available? I'll tell my clubmates the good news along with your email address then.

If you do that Keir there will be 265 places available!!!!

30 degrees?  How wonderful to have someone who still likes their temperatures in Fahrenheit...

We don't know where they got the article from but categorically there are no more entries

Chesterfield Bill thank you for the update!

I'm travelling down tomorrow, it's all quite exciting, first race I'm having an overnight stay the night before.

I hope you enjoy it. It is a good race which will test you and the Thanet crowd are a really friendly bunch.

JFDI I guess you could really be doing without an article like that appearing. Race day will be fraught enough for you all without half a dozen "it must be true because it said it in the paper" runners turning up looking to enter on the day.

I know - so glad this will be the last time I am doing entries for a big race

Never say never JFDI. I am sure I said I would never run another step about 1 week ago. But then someone offered me a selection of Jelly Babaies, Short bread and a Titan bar and all was well with the world.

Keir I have been trying to hand entries over to someone new for a year now! Cant remember the last time I ran one of our events

well done today everyone - results are now on the club website....

What a well organised event. Thanks to the fantastic marshalls for waiting for me!  Well done Thanet Runners Club.

Great organisation and friendly marshals, as is standard for Thanet RRs events. Thanks guys

As you can tell from my avatar I am biased. I think this is a great race. I personally felt I benefitted from the reverse direction and was delighted to take a couple of minutes off my pb. I have decided to stop running marathons as Old Father Time is catching up with me but I am going to keep on running this one while I am still able.

Can I just give a big pat on the back to Sharon and her team and Ed the Thanet website man for getting a report and results up there less than 3 hours after the last runner finished.

Cheers CB but cant take credit for results as that was down to IEK!

Well done on your run

Great race!  Pleased to come 5th in 2:02:49 - was on for sub 2hr (and 3rd) until about mile 15 when the wheels come off badly.

The organisation and the marshalling were top notch - a really good job by all!  Not so fond of the course though - few too many hills and sharp turns for my liking.  The section off-road though was far worse - rutted, uneven and a right royal pain in the backside.  Is there no way it could be avoided next year? It was unfitting for such an otherwsie brilliant race.

I had real problems with the Pfizer playing field section, I lost a fair bit of time on that mile. This was a new route so I guess teething problems were to be expected. We need to find a new Race Director for next year as Andy Carter is standing down, so everything is up for grabs. Finding Race Directors is unfortunately NOT an easy job and I dare say there will be a lot of soul-searching over the next few months to make sure next year's race even goes ahead.

By coming off the path and running in the field next to it the surface was a bit better.

Had a good race, cheers guys. Struggled with the football pitch bit, ground was a bit troublesome for my likening.

Thanks to all, was my longest ever distance in prep for VLM and done 2.49 so am very happy.
