The 'official' thread. Of course.
29th and first BFR male so chuffed to bits.
Annoyed to see us in 4th, but we will have to change that.
Firmer course than last year, got quite warm.. Fighting out with SJ and RRR's fast ladies for most of the race!
Top performance Sprint....but the game starts to get tougher, as I know Sandhurst will have some good runners coming back for the next races...
Good to read this thread...and looking forward to getting back involved at the 3rd race.
Sprint for the line wrote (see)
Quite an improvement on last years team for you BOTF - New members or faster members?
Found the thread!
I'll be making my season debut at Sandhurst.
Hello to all the regulars from lastyear, and welcome to all the new ones.
SG-have you moved away from Striders now?
nicely found Cat!
I have for the xc only. Sandhurst will be my xc racing team.
Ironically..a guy joined marlow...as 3rd claim..he won't race for us...who can do 50mins for 10miles. Makes my 58 look pretty pony...just when i thought it was decent
I'm hoping to make the 3rd race...but have got a bit of a niggle at the moment I'm hoping isn't too bad.It's that uncertain time where it could either be a massive problem, or back in a week!
Sandhurst - the local opposition! I hope you've been sharpening your elbows
10 miles in 50 minutes, blimey, that's good going.
Heal well. I had a niggly achilles in July whilst training for Beachy Head. Unlike me I took it easy for a week or s, as I knew I had plenty of time to sort it out. Luckily all was good.
cheers, to be fair it's a good time of year, as the main road stuff is all done and dusted, and only XC coming up for a few months. If i did have to miss some it'd be a shame but not an ass.
What is an ass is this niggle! Glute muscle i think. I'd always presumed it was a hamstring thing, but completely different muscle to stretch! And not the kind of day to day stretching we all do as standard.
I'll have to race well to get up the scorers list for Sandhurst. If i have an off day I'll find myself out of the scoring 6 positions! Bit of a far cry from being guaranteed first home for Marlow whatever i ran like. Much better this way though.
So whats Sundays course like? Club says 5m yet people who have done it say 6+? Narrow sections dont sound great, how much is like this?
Looking forward to it though, hopefully nice and wet!
I think i remember that Datchet is always the highest attendance, and then it can start sloping, and by the last 1 or 2 is well down!
Handy Cross quite close to Christmas is always the acid test of both course toughness and attendance.
Personally I find a 3 hill section on the Finch course the toughest segment of the whole series. Splendid though
