Number has arrived!  Getting close now..

Got my number today.
Does anyone know if it is a free for all at the start or do they try and organise it in time order, as we had to fill in a predicted time on the entry form.

There are boards adjacent to the start line Millsy, that show predicted finishing times.  It's down to the runners to decide where to stand though, this isn't marshalled, but I've never had a problem with it.

Cheers for the info. At least the signs will give people an idea of where they should stand.

Looking forward to this and hoping that the snow/ice is long gone by race day.  I managed a PB last year and I am hoping I can go better this year, but it will be close.  I had a great race last year.  No matter what happens, I know it will hurt!

I would be worried about the snow going for this one, if i wasn't doing a race the week before! My worries are with that one first

I recommend a bin liner for keeping warm in....you have to ditch your gear at the tent well before the race start due to queues, and those bin liners do quite well

An excellent PB course. I've run Wokingham twice before - the only two times I've run under 1:30, and I ran my fastest ever 10 miles ever over this course in the process (the 10 mile mark is going over the bridge on the way back) - fond memories. I won't break the 1:30 time this time around - I'll be luck to break 1:40, but fingers crossed I'll be there!

Looks like we are going to get wet on sunday

07/02/2013 at 10:35

And cold. I did say the course is a bit exposed so bring that bin liner with you to avoid freezing at the start.

pip - thanks great - i love u too

Muttley - bin liner - you'll need a portable gas bottled fire on wheels LOL LMAO

Can anyone give me advice on parking for the event? I am coming in from Reading and have no idea what parking arrangements thre are.

Thanks in advance.

bedders - hi, how are u -

coming in from Reading, you locals will still be in bed when we arrive  - we'll be up and 5.30 and away at 5.50 - 1.3/4 hour drive

07/02/2013 at 11:32

I've done it a few times before and there are plenty of car parks in the town centre. I think they are sign posted, but unless you are super early, just follow everyone else!  Once parked, again, just follow everyone else to the start!

Bin liner will be packed

07/02/2013 at 12:13
I usually laugh at people running up and down in bin liners. But aye, looking at the weather I may be converted!
07/02/2013 at 13:06

They can be a god send.  Last year at MK marathon, the weather was so bad that most bin liners were still being worn at the finish, as well as the start

07/02/2013 at 17:24

So when is this again????

07/02/2013 at 19:35

Wokingham is the only race I've ever done where a bin liner has been necessary.


That's not to say it's the coldest, it's just that you park a mile away, and have to ditch your bag early, or risk the race starting before you've done so (2 years ago!, on a very wet day!)

Well hello there Mr K. Are you with us for this one, or admitting you missed it?
