Are there many young people that enter this race, around the age of 17?

There are not that many juniors that enter the Harvel 5. Last year there were only 6 under 18 males and 3 under 18 females (Minimum age on race day is 15) There is a trophy for each of these categories.

Drinking AND running - sounds like a perfect combination. I must check my diary!!

Well we are The Drinking Club with a Running Problem!

Disaster. its my rugby club dinner the night before. We may be ladies but we party hearty and I'm not sure this is the cure, then again could run it off and have hair of the dog at the same time!!

The Harvel 5 is worth travelling for - I have done 3 of them now, although I don't have that far to go (Essex) I always make the effort - my In laws also live there so I can get a shower before going to the Amazon and Tiger

Well thats it I am entered so you will have the pleasure of my slightly hungover company on the day. I'll try and drag some of my dining companions as long as well...don't think we'll be threatening the front runners but we'll be at the back with style!!

I love this 5-miler. I ran it for the first time last year and it is only about a 15 minute drive friom where I live in Gravesend.
It is great to have a pint after too! And, what a beautiful village Harvel is too.

well all this talk of beer and running - sounds great! I live in Essex near Epping Forest and I reckon that I could get to the course and follow birdypie at the back in style and even enjoy myself!!!

Yep I'll be there Rachel. It will probably appear that I am going backwards but I do hope to get to the finish at some point. Got my race confirmation through this week so no excuse now!!

Don't forget we also have a licenced bar on the Green and beer available on request at the water station in the Country Park! Also the Amazon & Tiger Pub (The Clubs sponsor) is open all day.

Did this last year. Got there late from Luton due to horrendous snarl ups onthe M25 but decided to run it anyway. Given I was running by myself I decided to indulge in the beer at the drinks station. Very nice course especially once it gets through the woods.

Probably not going this year as I have a choice of two local races the next day.

This is a great event. Did it last year and doing it again this year. My time might be adversely affected now that I know there is beer at the water station. May end up running The Harvel 2.5

This was my first ever race last year, have entered again this year and am looking forward to it. Last year it was very hot but as most of the race is through the country park it is pretty shaded so was bearable.

Tempted as I was by the beer I didn't indulge last year, but this who knows????

I think this race must be my idea of heaven, beer at water stations!!!!

Well that's it, the entry has been logged and I hope to persuade a mate to run it with me and help me get to the liquid refreshments at the end!!!

Can't wait!!!

11/05/2003 at 17:41
