Only a couple of weeks to go now. Anyone running it.

This is one of my favourite 10K races, and I try to run it every year.

Entry fees have gone up this year, but as the police now have to be paid, this is, unfortunately inevitable.

I'm considering it.

What's the course like, flat or Hilly, fast or slow ?

Comparable to Marwell ? or easier ?

It is not a flat course - but it a good event for local charity - not done it for a couple of years, but have always enjoyed it.

It is quite a fast course. It is a little hilly outward, with a faster return. I usually run the second half quicker.

I haven't run the Marwell, so can't compare it. It isn't the fastest 10k course that I have run, and my best time for it is 37.12, set way back in 1991.

It is a friendly race, and goes round southampton common. They take entries on the day. I would recommend it to you.

I'm afraid I never received my race No. so didn't run it. It still hasn't arrived.

Very disappointed, as I have run it practically every year, since 1987, when it was my very first 10k race.

A good day out - I looked for you at the start Terry, shame you missed it.

I made up 3 minutes on my Winchester 10K time but still appear to be going backwards as I approach the big five -oh this year....does it get any easier ?!

Got my entry form for Marwell - a friend who's done it says its a great day out but hilly....might see you there ?

Hi Roger, I saw your name in the results lists. I am really peeved that I didn't receive my race pack. Must have gone astray in the post, as everyone else seems to have received theirs.

I am not running the Marwell Zoo 10k, but have entered the Isle of Wight Marathon, which takes place on the 20th May.

Hallo, I wasn't able to find the full results of the race on the two saints 10k web site yet. I gave a call to the organizer, but I was told that I have to wait few more days. Has anybody found them somewhere else?
Many thanks.

I saw the results on the two saints web site on Monday.

Terence, thank you for your reply. I have been going through the several times since Monday. But were is said: 'click here for full results' I keep finding the 2006 race's resluts. So I have gone through all the pages of the site, but no 'results'!
It's me being "blind", or something else is wrong?!

Laura, I can't understand why you can't get the 2007 results. I have just checked again and they are still there.

Hi Terence, I do not know what kind of 'mistery' it was, but on Saturday morning I found a Two Saints 10k web site which appeared (to me!) finally updated and with all the "long-awaited" results!
Thank you anyway for your help. Laura

Good luck with the IOW marathon Terry - and any other Forumites who have it on their 'To Do' list !

( As Terry is probably well aware the IoW is FAR from is a polite way of describing the terrain :-) )


( looking forward to trotting past the tigers...)
