The Wokingham Half for 2011 doesn't seem to be included in the RW events database. This is odd.

Whatever, I'm in!

Same here Muttley...panicked a bit when I saw the entries were at 1800 already, as I hadn't seen either a thread, or the event on this site.

 Feared there were only 2000 places, but it's 2750...so not quite the urgency...but still...in now!

 Have missed out on Reading though. Again it's not even on RW events! Can't believe a £30+ event with 18,000 places can go so quick.

100s of them will be on here in Feb trying to sell their places tho!

I wouldn't do the Reading if you paid me to because of the crowding. But I take your point, it's a shame when big events don't put themselves on this site. Potentially a problem because I've always thought this is the only one-stop-shop for all my races and entries.

I wonder why these events aren't putting themselves on RW.

Someone tells me that Reading was on here briefly, but soon taken off!

I think Reading is ok if you get to start from the front pen. My pal has done this and he's a similar pace to me, circa sub 1hr 20, and he reckons you start in the elite group at the front.

Now that would be fun, bearing in mind the winners do just over an hour

Not sure i'll bother doing it if i can't by hook or by crook get to start in the right pen. Otherwise you'd be fighting your way through! I used to do that at Silverstone, as when I got myself to the front I couldn't get near the right area and had to start at the 1hr 45 bit!

I am in. It's on my birthday so I thought 'why not?'

Ah-ha, that's worth knowing! My target in half marathons is one hour plus my age in years, so you'll be up there with the 1:21 crowd then ...

if i can blag a place...although if i followed your method,  i'd be looking for 1hr 29

I might have a place too, couple of runs this week will reveal if I'm up to it or not, if anyone is still looking.

One week and counting - Looking forward to this.

Will you be wearing any "dodgy" shorts Mr K?
