Hi guys, i ran the great north run for the first time last year but was forced to miss this years event through being injured. I sat in front of the tv watching the proceeedings wishing i was there and became massively inspired to put in for next years race as soon as possible. Just wondered how soon we can enter the race or get application forms, advice would be appreciated. Cheers, Craig

Keep an eye on greatrun.org which gives the details. The date for the next GNR is the 18th September. Places are usually released around Christmas time. I did it for the first time this year and I'm hooked! Loved it!

Gareth where's your piccy gone?

I don't know! I tried to upload a new piccy from the GNR but it's gone t*ts up! Now I can't even upload the old one! Aaargh! Will keep trying!

Sometimes it takes a couple hours between loading up new one and the old one. Try logging out and logging back in again - worked for me yesterday.

Ta. Hope it will work soon. I kinda feel like someone who doesn't want to be recognised - " We have disguised his voice.... "

Thanks Gareth god knows I need a laugh 2day.
Roll on 10 October(Liverpool 1/2 Marathon),then I can cut down on all this training.

I know the feeling! I've got a 10km this Sunday and the Henley half on the 10th and that's it then until the Sodbury Slog (8 mile cross country with hills!) on the 14th November. I really need a rest (my achiles needs a rest!). Why do we do this to ourselves!?! Because we're insane masachists who enjoy hurting ourselves?
29/09/2004 at 09:04
Yep - that's y I do it Gareth
I do fell racing as well....2500 feet 14 miles, lots of rocks,cow poo, mud etc...I havent really worked out why I do that yet. It is bloody hard work and I get horrible injuries.
Must be mad....

Fell running sounds mad! I read an article by a fell runner a while back and it sounded excruciatingly painful. Cross country is enough for me. Not got that many hills down here in Oxford so it's kinda difficult to train (I have to go to Wycombe to do my hill training which is 30 miles away). Full respect!
