Just wondering does anyone run with ipods? and is it best to carry your own drink or are their drink stations?
Don't start about ipods!
There are drink stations, about every 3 miles. If you get desperate you cross the River Stour twice.
ipods aren't so bad, I do a lot of running/training on my own and it keeps me company and helps me set a good pace
i did a 10k recently and they said under some running regulation we weren't allowed to use them as some of the course was on public roads. Is the Stickler all off road?
Oww wasnt that fun? A minute slower than last year but we were completely blown away by the other dogs. I think being towed by huskies is cheating though (outside assistance)
Well organised as usual, weather wasn't too bad and a really nice top to take home. Well done the Doddlers
Note to self, multi terrain events need off road shoes!!!
Not sure I enjoyed it at the time but have fond memories now.
Well organised and I'd only been talking about needing a long sleeved t-shirt in the morning - bonus ...
One last thing, MF posted earlier on the thread that you should expect to run your half marathon time - what's the consenus on this based on today's run? While I was disappointed with my minute miling, this would be a fantastic half for me!
FH - I actually ran in at 15 mins under my half marathon time, so that estimation didn't really work for me. Saying that having expected a longer time I was doubly pleased with my result. Actually ran without a watch and checked the time when I got in. Found it really great to be not checking on the time on the way round!
Well done to the organisers and everyone who took part, thought the atsmopshere was great, especially the encouragement from the other runners when I managed to run one of the bigger hills!
Will definitely go back next year!
I'm having a bit of a rest from races, next one for me is the 'rough 'n' tumble. Will still be training though!
Good luck to all you who are still racing!!
