Hi guys, I am a local and a few of us will definitely be running, possibly slightly worse for wear after Saturday night. Has anyone run this before? How big a field will it be and I also wondered if this was mainly for club athletes as it is associated with Wimbledon AC?

Jonathan. It is a fun run and you are meant to go in fancy dress. Best get a gorilla suit or something.

p.s. Where are we going drinking on the Saturday?

I've entered, but it'll be my third race in three weeks (following Nike 10k and Windsor half), so I'm not expecting great things. But I think 10 miles is my favourite distance, so I couldn't miss it.

Are many others of you out there going to be doing it?

A-ha - great to see you on here Gordon McKirdy.

I was tempted to go in fancy dress, I was thinking of going as a motorcycle courier with my outfit including the motorbike. I think an impressive time will be seen!

I think a post match beer is also a good idea - maybe somewhere in Wimbledon center?

Going for lunch with Jamie, Cathy and Dave after the race. You're more than welcome to join us.

Cool, are they all running? I am not sure if I should eat a large lunch after the run. I feel I could manage a few beers though.

Jamie's running (or flapping his lanky legs about - which I think more fairly describes what he does).

Beers are a fine plan. P&P!!!

Excellent - sounds good.

Does anyone have prior knowledge of this?
The run - not the pub!!!
Is it a large field size, fast/slow course/ do we hit wimbledon hill etc?

looks like around 120 if similar to a couple of years ago

Excellent news - so my worst case scenario is finishing in 120th place in a renowned road race!

Ha, ha, this is brilliant.

That's if you finish mate.

I really enjoyed the race yesterday (after recovering from the pre-race beers).
