I was looking to get trail shoes, as I don't fancy running 15 miles in my studs with no cushioning, but on current conditions I may just go with my road shoes.

Off road or trail are best - spikes are fine but 15 miles is tough on spikes - normal shoes are ok but it can be boggy

I will wear studs for what it is worth

Having just finished Brentwood Half with a PB I feel the urge to do something stupid

Put me down on the list ORB!

Will be trying for a reasonable time (for me) in the Orion 15, doing the A20 Pathway the next day as a lsr ....... some loose talk at my club persuaded me that it was a good idea to do both, I am not totally convinced, but find it difficult to resist a challenge..... I am hoping for rain, rain and more rain

I would like to enter on the day. What time should i arrive by?

I was going to do the A20 Pathway, but have been banned as it is Mother's Day!

All numbers sent out. Some entries arrived yesterday and they will be asked to collect number on the day. If you think you should have received a number and have not then please email me.

As this week has been dry just wondered if anybody knew the state of the course ? -  not sure which type of shoes to wear, trainers or studs?

Sorry I don't know and have that decision to make myself so will have both with me. Lovely day for it

Can't even run for the bus at the moment

Having witnessed Epping Forest on a dark, grey, cold, wet November afternoon I was looking forward to seeing it in the spring

Good luck everyone

Yes, there is always next year

Not to mention the fell race later in the year

Did you enjoy the champagne at the finish?

Was too late but I enjoyed the race, thanks to everyone who made of possible.

Too late for champagne too but a cracking run nevertheless.

ORB - nicely located clubhouse and great organisation. Please extend my thanks to the heroic marshalls taking on the motorists of Essex on all those road crossings.

Very nice race, really challenging. I knew Epping Forest is undulating but where did they find so steep hills ?

Definitelly will go again next year hoping for a different weather. This time I used my road trainers, my studs are waiting

I'd like to thank organisers for a superb race and for the promt placing of the results on internet.

thanks Helly d i was one of those marshalls the motorists were very considerate, bar one in a silver hyundai coupe i think. Evasive action was required as he floored it hurling abuse at everyone. Apart from that was a good day i hope to run it next year.
