How many? When? Where?
I've been thinking of incorporating a few races during training for the FLM. At the moment I've been leaning towards:
Canterbury 10 mile (January)
Ashford and District 10k (possibly) (February)
Hastings Half (March)
Obviously it would make more sense to run a 10k in Jan and a 10miler in Feb, but I couldn't find a 10k in the second half of Jan in my area. I've never taken part in a race before so my question is, is this a good itinerary that will complement my training? Should I be racing more or less leading up to the marathon? Thanks for any help.
Only done Hastings Half Marathon, it is very hilly and my slowest half marathon but lots of slower runners.
Paddock Wood half marathon is a nice flat marathon on the 30th March. I got a pb there in 2006 and not beat it since.
Since you're Kent based think about the Sidcup 10 mile on 10th Feb albeit in the London part of the county.
Thanks for your replies - that was very helpful! I'll probably enter two 10 mile races, followed by a half and a 20. Hopefully that will be enough but not too much. Thanks again!
