Whos doing this race then?

Also 2 or 3 others according to the URWFRC website. I shall be jogging to the start for my warm up (I live that close!) and I'll have a post-race bevy in either The Bell, Tolleshunt Major (opposite the start/finish) or The Chequers, Goldhanger (2.5m from the start/finish). Anyone care to join me?

Will anyone be wearing blu/yellow kit? I'll be in my local club colours as it's our club 10m championship.

P.S. Long Legs & Little Feat - what a combination!

Yes, I may well be wearing the vest, definitely before the race anyway.
Should see you there
11/10/2002 at 11:29
I'm going to be there, first race for ages, really looking forward to it.

Whats the course like then?

I have a map but as I have not done this before I am not too sure. I believe it is flatish and I know it is a 2 lap course. The web site is www.tiptreeroadrunners.freeserve.co.uk if you want to have a look.

I had a look on the website but can't find a map. Oh well I'm sure it'll all be a pleasent surprise on the day (or not!)

When it is the Tiptree 10 LL?

11/10/2002 at 15:21
Its Sunday the 20th

Are you thinking of doing this one, then?
11/10/2002 at 16:36
Hi LL, I will be here for this one, looking forward to it after my DNF at the Mersea 10. I have to get one 10 mile time this year after all!

As rightly stated above it's a 2-lap race through small country lanes with some gentle undulations. Mostly protected by hedges, but there are one or two spots where you can be exposed to the easterly wind (like today!).

Hi LF, sounds like quite a decent fast course then, I am looking forward to this one
12/10/2002 at 15:53
Just to set your minds at rest, I have driven around this course today and as LF suggests there are one or two open spots, but the course could really be fast, there seems to be more downhills than up. It is through quite narrow country lanes, so hope there will not be much traffice on the roads as that would make it quite difficult.
It starts and finishes at the Beckingham Business Park at Tolleshunt Major and The Bell pub looks to be favourite for meeting up afterwards as this is very close to the finish.

Thats good LL, at least whatever time I get will be my fastest 10 miler of the year as I havent done one yet :)

Will wear my new Racing shoes for this one that I just bought at Sweatshop this afternoon.

LL & Co. The narrow lanes are usually great as far as traffic is concerned, I do all my road running around there and some days I'll scarcely see a car at all.

Shall we say The Bell for a de-brief?
13/10/2002 at 16:35
LF, that sounds great, The Bell it is then. What time are you hoping for. My PB for 10miles in 84:53 (GSR), so I would like to get near that if possible.
13/10/2002 at 18:38
My best for 10 is 84:06 about 6 months ago, I'd like to think I could do something like that again. See you in the sub-85 start pen!
13/10/2002 at 18:57
Hi LF, any idea on how many take part in this? I see its in the Essex Championships and so expect that some local clubs will have a lot of representation.
13/10/2002 at 21:53
Hi NN - Don't know about overall numbers, but as well as the County Championships it's also my club's 2002 10m Championship race so I'm expecting a decent turnout.

Expect the standard could be quite high (not that I'll be troubling the leaders - unless I get in their way when they lap me!)
13/10/2002 at 23:40
Hi LF, any idea where the year befores 10 mile results could be? I know last year it was cancelled because of the bad weather.

What club do you run for?

Regards, NN
