Good luck TP and Tricia. 57.5 - remember parkruns in England start at 9!

Windy but not cold here this evening. Enjoyable run.

Hi all

Am looking for a half marathon within 10 -15 miles of Helensburgh around June July.

Just by chance I came across the Balloch to Clydebank half on the web there in April - I have looked at the Scottish athletics site but it doesnt mention the smaller races. So looking for local knowledge really

Thanks folks, still got a days work to do before hopefully leaving on 11pm boat tomorrow night.

Have to admit to a sneaky look at Glen Ogle website last night but seems its all full up. Guess that may be a good thing.

Any of you more northern folk thinking about this 1746 Culloden run, sounds like it might be fun though maybe a bit too short to justify a trip south. On the other hand if I could tie it in with a course or something...?

I had thought of the Culloden run, no real excuse as I live about 10 miles away. Plenty of PB potential for the legendary 17.46km distance. Hope the boat trip is OK.

Thanks for the reminder Alison. We sometimes get joined by English parkrunners as we set up the Inverness course when they forget the 'time change'.

interview this morning at 10am hate these things... oh well, what will be will be.

Boy its got cold though these last few days... brrrrr....

Happy hols when it comes Elspeth.

Morning all

Elspeth - Glen Ogle has been full for ages .

Thank goodness there are still some races around where you don't have to decide yonks (years?) in advance whether to enter .

I am debating Kirki Half, 7th Oct, but will see how the legs recover from tommorrow, before I decide whether to run such a ridiculously short distance .

3.30 - plenty of Halfs just off the top of my head usually in June/July, but none I can think of that fit within your mileage limit.

Right, I need to get my kit ready for tommorrow and go out and buy some tablet .

Happy weekends everyone.

I cant seem to find any at all !!

14/09/2012 at 11:58

3:30 or bust - The Helensburgh half marathon is normally the first weekend of August if that is of any use to you. Small event, but it's a good one.

14/09/2012 at 12:59

3.30 - Scottish Athletics probably dont have the full Spring / Summer calendar up yet. Dunfermline Half is usually in June - that is a nice one, but I dont think they ran it this year. Girvan in July, although I wasnt that keen on the course. And there's loads if you are prepared to travel to some of the islands - Barra Half is lovely, then there is Skye, Lewis, Harris etc, all challenging runs with the hills involved.  

14/09/2012 at 13:44

I really want to do my home town Half again and am hoping instead of putting it on 5/8 this years they will run it Sunday before as I am off on my hols on 1/8

14/09/2012 at 16:47

I am trying really hard not to eat all the tasties I have bought for tommorrow .

Arrrrrrghhhh! Resistence is futile ........

14/09/2012 at 17:58

Goodluck with RAW TP

14/09/2012 at 18:22

3.30 - the Dundee Half is at the end of July. Nice event.

14/09/2012 at 19:20

So will do so be back later

14/09/2012 at 20:31

Tri: Hope your interview went well today.

Nice mornnig oput here in Erskine

An easy run done and dusted. Lots of fallen leaves lying on pathways.

MrsMac: Arnold Clark are fine until you have signed for a car. They are really bad in fact Appalling, Customer Service Wise.  We've complained to their head office directly, that does seem to help. if you haven't then,I'd advise you to do so. Don't hold back either with your complaint.

Just back from the parkrun. New PB - very pleased, as first pb in anything since June.

Beautiful day here.

Alison: Good to hear and well done on pb
