a thread for those of us who live and run here to keep up to date
Oh Good thread Lurker! Will bookmark it.
the bournville harriers "leafy 10k" is open for business now on:
or on here under the events tab
last year it was a bit like a cross country as it chucked it down.the race is on roads, through parks and along trails which you might not expect in birmingham - hhence "leafy"
for those who have done the rowheath 5k, it's a bit like that but a bigger circuit, so there are hills
and we absolutely promise that this year there will be tea and cakes - our club is known to give good cake but last year it was the thing we forgot
you forgot the FREE CHOCOLATE FOR EVERY FINISHER-
and to mention the fabulous efficient results service
and furthermore - it has its own thread Leafy 10k
Is that enough shameless and totally unbiased boinging?
Just thought, it may not be a 'serious' race, but anyone here doing the Sutton Park Race for Life tomorrow?
I'm not, for obvious reasons, but am marshalling again, so if I recognise anyone I'll give you an extra shout!
no, i am cross witth the rfl crew (again - lasrt time i was cross because they failed to provvide water even though the conditions were really hot, i know they say they don't provide but two years ago the conditions were terrible and i feel they have a duty of care considering how many inexperienced runners there are at these events. i was obviously not the only one who complained as they had water the following year)
but anywaythis time ii am cross because they took away the cannon hill version and expected us all the trawl out to the niawell i liked it where it was, i went down and ran it and was still able to jog home and be back in time for t
so they have lost my custom
I'll have a word, shall I?!
You could still make a donation, of course - I'll put your tenner in - give me it back next time I see you!
It was really hot in May at the NEC but had a good laugh, shouted myself hoarse. I'd probably have done Cannon Hill, given the option. Was it just there last time, or were the NEC & Sutton Park ones on too?
i don't knowi think they may have taken out a couple of the smaller ones for one big one
i ama major plonker - i have just checked my last rowheath time and realised i actuyally did this one 55 seconds faster than last time, not slower as i had thought, i got my times muddled up
If Chris M's unofficial time is correct, I was about 29 secs slower this time.
BTW Adrian C, re your Nov HM question, I guess that's a no!
yay indeedit was a parkrun event that i did last month on a completely flat course that i did in 25.50
i did the rowheath one in 26.55and 26 this timenot fast by your standards but a significanrt improvement
the fast boys from bvh were talking about how windy it was - possibly to make me feel better, or possibly it made a difference - we shall see when we compare
still no official results on the 5kthey have obviously got better things to do over the weekend
bit hilly over there though aint itis it properly measured and all that though ? - cos i am looking for a pbthis year i am doing no races with "fun" in the title
hmm, organised by the same people that do the race for life
so it won't benext year maybe
although it might be good practise for the conductive education 2 weeks later, since that is flat
Given that the entry fee 'does not include a donation', you have to wonder where the money goes. Even with the free T-shirt, it is a little bit steep. Then again I've paid £22.00 to enter the Jane Tomlinson 10k in York.
Makes the Leafy 10 look great value!
