Fancy a real challenge? If you fancy an afternoon of ups and downs and probably the hardest and most unforgettable 15 miles you can find in London (and just about anywhere else for that matter) then enter this wonderful historic run. March 21st 2009 awaits - if you are tough enough (but it is great fun - honestly)  <a href="http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/#" title="Quote this message in your own message"></a>

When asked what his greatest achievments were,  Ian Thompson the European and Commonwealth Marathon Champion in the 70s said that coming second in the Orion 15 ranked well up there!!

Thanks for that - I'll have to try and find out when he did it!

Assuming I remember stamps my entry should be winging its way Essexwards tomorrow. It'll be interesting to do an afternoon race, never tried one before.

You will love it...and never forget it (and we will look after you after the race if you are feeling a bit tired...

Cheers ORB. Is there likely to be beer in the vicinity? Purely for medicinal purposes, of course.

The club house is at the back of a pub that also does meals. B-)

See you there. I know Epping Forest can be lovely but don't know the area very well.

Starting to send numbers out this weekend

Have you done it Cookie? It's a fab race......

Come on cookie - you could count the hills....

I counted the hills and the mud yesterday

And got to too many and too much!

And don't forget I've run in Epping Forest. Twice!
