I'm in! I'll be giving the crowds at Reading and Fleet the slip and instead taking a leisurely bimble along the Thames.
Pity the three events clash this year, but I'm happy with my choice
Ha! Realise that you HAVE done this before.....am VERY tempted.......and just a little......EEEEEK!
You know you want to!
It's pretty much flat, mostly off-road on good surfaces, couple of minor gradients but nothing major. And some kissing gates so this is not a balls-out pb course.
It was probably my favourite event this year.
Muttley, you're talking my kind of language! Who wants to run through city streets when you can be slithering your way along a towpath in the middle of the countryside?
I AM going to turn up at the start line in one piece for this one, I am I am!!!! Marshalling's all very well but ... Ohhh sooooo careful training over the winter months methinks
When I did it the weather was dry and sunny. I'd say road shoes should be fine. The route is mostly off-road but it's not a cross-country mudfest although if the weather is wet beforehand it might get a bit squelchy.
Great stuff, I'll enter after Christmas to make sure.
Thought about Reading myself but £28 is a bit steep for a half, especially as I have 4 to enter in 4 weeks.
Back out on the roads last night and a few laps round Ascot racecourse innner road this afternoon. For the first time ever I've been using a treadmill at the local school's sports centre. I might use it again for doing speed work or intervals.
I'm going for this Water of Life race instead of Reading or Fleet. I know Marlow pretty well (have done the Marlow half twice) - Muttley, is the parking at Bisham Abbey for the race, and was it ok when you did the race before?
