Is anyone else who reads this forum doing this 10k ?

I have received confirmation from the organiser today that he's had my application so I will be there - it'll be the first time I've done it since 1992, and I'm looking to beat the time I achieved then.

A nice flat course (just watch out for the sand blowing against your legs in the "cool" October sea breeze !)

I will be there, I think not running though. This is one for Mr Fat Girl Slim, I'll be watching with the children. Whats the course, is it all along the front?

If the course is the same (which I would expect) it starts at the Leisure centre on the prom, goes down past the pleasure beach and then loops back on the path next to the sands - back up as far as the bowling greens and then back down to the leisure centre on the prom.

Very straightforward, flat and fast.

I just hope the weather is nice !

I don't know my number yet but if you see someone with a vest or shirt like the one in this photo please give me a cheer (I ould do with the encouragement !)

From the details that came with my race number it sounds like they have changed the course since I last did it - it seems to be 2 laps now of a slightly different area, and it sounds like we don't run past the sand anymore !!

Shame - it added novelty value !

UNFORTUNATELY, Wind and sand combined to make a major shovelling job necessary, so the course was changed a few years ago. The height under the pier is now sometimes only about half a meter and it's not a commandoes only race!
It's still near enough to the sea to feel the breeze an an easterly will add some sting.

Well, I've had an e-mail from Deanskipper, so I know he did well yesterday.

I struggled with my knee pain from the third km.

My full race report is on my homepage:

Did anyone else do this run, if so what did you think ???
