Thats it, my challenge for 2014 will be to run Hadrians Wall, got to be a good choice for O4S, anyone else fancy having a go?


29/11/2012 at 11:39
It's quite local to me DD. Perhaps we should set that now for the 2014 forum outing?

Ant - thanks for that book suggestion.

And thanks for doing the list Freemers.

Rest day for me today and I feel I need.

I'm up for that.  We cycled the Hadrians Wall cycle route a few years ago so running it seems the obvious next step.  I assume we will be doing it all in one go??

Can't we just have a 5k as our forum outing?

29/11/2012 at 12:47

I'm with Daren, a 5K followed by a marathon drinking session 

Races over 100km simply don't compute

O4S Of course

Come on Daren, surely you'll have man-upped by then,

Although Ant's idea isn't bad.

I'd opt for the continuous run but the weaker members of the forum could do it over two days.....

29/11/2012 at 13:04

 Can I do it over two weeks?

29/11/2012 at 13:09
Ant - I'm not to sure about clicking on any of your links after that dodgy one the other day.

DD - Yes I've seen this one, are you planning to do the hardcore all in one go 67m, or the easier one over 2 days of 30+ miles.

Freemers - yes I could of gone sick again, but that would of put me into a formal process for sick. Basically your only alllowed so many days sick in a rolling 6mnths, and a total of 8 working days in 12mnths. This would of put me over, and better to try and stay out of it, otherwise Big brother are on your case more.

DD/ O4S Yes, I was thinking of doing Hadrians - though maybe dependent on that water tanker following behind me perhaps...;). Friend did it last year in 15-16 hours and had a fantastic time.

See how I survive TT50 & VLM first, with Edinburgh maybe as backup, Thunder Run after that. (hmm... which reminds me, email time Team Gazelle now Brol is safely home).

DD- Fast reps, very speedy with that recovery time.

Simon, sorry to hear you're not well again. 2-3 people here with that bug too.

29/11/2012 at 13:19

I'm up for it. It's something I've often thought about.


29/11/2012 at 13:20

The Wall sounds tempting...

Ant- I see you're doing the Surrey Spitfre 20m in March.  I did it last year as MP run and really enjoyed. Might be tempted to do it again. Didn't you do Finchley 20 last year? I seem to remember that we did the same 20m.

DD- damn fast 800s!

Free- enjoy the party tonight.

Who would they be exactly?

Simon - dodgy one?! it was a guardian news story  don't they get that up Norf

29/11/2012 at 13:24

Bro - yeah I did the Finchley 20 last year and really enjoyed it, unfortunately it happens a little too close to Paris. The Surrey Spitfire looks like a good un and is a little earlier in the year.

29/11/2012 at 13:29

I've updated the 2013 list. Only put on the main races, not the XC or the park runs etc.

Freemers - your Broadland Half date was wrong. I've corrected it.

I'm relly not sure about doing the Wall, even over 2 days. Just not keen on trying an ultra, certainly don't want to train for one.  Can I do a pub crawl along the route instead?

I like Freemers pub crawl idea myself!

Was there talk of putting a team entry into Thunder Run?
29/11/2012 at 13:46

Same here Freemers. Unsurprisingly I have absolutely no interest in doing an ultra whatsoever and can't imagine I ever will - even if I had the endurance to do it I just don't understand the appeal of running really slowly for 16 hours .
