Sorry MA2, no idea.  Did find an email address so have mailed to ask about how *multi-terrain* this will be.

Just entered this event. Will be coming from London and be nice to have a sober New Years Eve. This will be my second half marathon though not sure if I will get a personal best depends on course and how much I eat over Christmas.

 We highlighted the course as 'multi-terrain' purely because the route will utilise a mix of tarmac, gravel and concrete tracks and pathways and maybe a short grass section.  It will certainly not be a cross country route as I don't think I could face that myself the day after New Years Eve!

 Check out the medal which has been specifically designed for the event and an image uploaded onto this site - we hope you will all approve.

Thanks Lloyd, not sure I fancy x country on NYD either!

Where is the image of the medal?

Thanks again Lloyd,

like the medal, I think it will be my first ever race where I might feel better at the end, than I do when I start - hope anyway.

Cinders - if you go to the main event page and scroll to the bottom of the screen, you should see the medal image.

Feel like a wimp now only doing the 10k! Just thought a HM may be a bit much on new yrs day esp as already doing Bedford half 2 weeks before.... Then again would be a good start to my marathon training does anyone know if I can upgrade?

Which mara are you doing KB?

Im doing the Bedford HM on 12th Dec so thought would only do the 10k recovery run at Wicksteed as opposed to the HM but quite fancy the Half now...

I'm starting the year off with the half and bulding up to London

Does anyone know what the course will be like in terms of gradient, terrain etc. As I am coming from London I have know idea what the area is like for running.

I really like the look of that medal.  Initially thought no chance due to expecting twins at the start of January but they decided to come 9 weeks early so perhaps it's a sign
