Have signed up.  Half marathon, which half of a marathon do you have to do?  I hope it's not the second half.

Ran this year while being filmed for a documentary about marathon training. Film crew were asked to do a promotional film for the race at the same time, and the result is the promo video on the race website.

 JUST missed out on a sub 2 hour race, so hoping to bust that once I get off the cigs AGAIN,and stop having work meetings in Starbucks!

Looks like I might be doing this again, as it'll probably be part of my training for FLM.

At least I'll be expecting the hills this time. Flat course? Hmmmm...

Do tell.

Don't worry, I'm exaggerating! (a bit)

There's a slow climb at about 7 miles, where the course goes up the road above the start finish line.  Then it comes sharply back down, then a sharp uphill through the cycle path tunnel at around 10 miles, up onto the cliffs.  Nothing too nasty as long as you've not only trained on the flat!

The path back down into the marina is very steep, but then it's flat from there to the finish.

All my runs are undulating with short steep bits so sounds about right.

Did this one this year as well and am going to give it another go in 2009

Having done Barns Green the other week, the hills no longer scare me!

Count me in too.

Does anyone know why this race has been listed twice in the events section?  I'm assuming it's the same race!

Looks the same apart from one listed with "The" at the front!

Yeah, that's what made me think it could have been two races... doh!

I'm in for this! I ran Barns Green last Nov so looking to improve on that...

Me too. Have to do this one as it's my local race
13/01/2009 at 21:41
Mine too, would be rude not too

I'm in.  This will be my fourth.  Fingers crossed for a decent day.  The last couple of years were great.

Just signed up for this having had six weeks off running.  Hoping the weather will be good, but I have a feeling it's going to be windy.
