If the Shakespear 10k is on the long Marston raceway again then it is the flattest race you will do. I ran the one in March this year and there is a big ZERO on hills, not even the slightest lump. However,,,,,,,it is windy, very very windy and to be honest I would prefer the hills. I ran this slower than the Dudley Kingswinford 10K which is hilly. If it is a perfectly calm day then it is a definate PB course.

it looks hideous though chris
it would be like track running
i need more than that to enjoy a race

even the conductive education - which i admit to doing because it is nice and flat - has something nice to look at as you run
that place looked empty and souless

Lurker,

 I pretty much agree with everything you say. It was ok as a one off for me, but that is it and it is not really on my schedule as a return trip.

RK, I don't suppose you picked up a grey waterproof jacket out of my car boot on Friday ?

It's ok. I found it this morning. D'oh

10/10/2009 at 18:41

So. It's gone a bit quiet here. Nothing happening in the West Midlands?

10/10/2009 at 18:52
only the small matter of a certain jog round Brum tomorrow RK
10/10/2009 at 18:52

nope

nothing happening this weekend at all

Oh yeah, I thought everyone had lost interest in that after Ms Radcliffe pulled out with a sore throat...?

Wot? No beer?

The Courgette & Chocolate cake was very nice, by the way. Didn't taste of courgette or chocolate, but very nice all the same!

lurker - don't forget to mention that nobody's allowed to wear a watch!!
10/10/2009 at 19:53
Well, that's my dastardly plan out the window
10/10/2009 at 20:35
i can't remember if the bar was open last year
10/10/2009 at 20:35
i assume it is as the rugby and football teams are in

I think our clu pub run is much better, it is from pub to pub, 5 pubs I think last year, and you gotta have a drink in each one. Not too bad to start with but once all that fluid starts sloshing around inside you.........

10/10/2009 at 20:51
Chris - sounds good to me...
10/10/2009 at 21:03

ooh no, don't fancy that

too many fluids

11/10/2009 at 07:36
I think we're having a club XC handicap - and the only fluid involved will be mud. I've a feeling it may be the same day as your yacht handicap, too.

Sorry, folks, forgot to let you know I had a response re the Shakespeare Raceway 10km.

There's an entry form here.

I've pretty much decided against it.
