Those special few on Twitter may have seen that Chrissie Wellington has announced that she's going for a "casual run" from Speakers Corner, Hyde Park. London at 12.15pm on Thursday 3 November and all are invited.

Be warned though, FlatFooted has said he might be there, so not all good news!

I bet her casual run will be a little quick for me, but it's a rare opportunity to do something a bit different, so I'm hoping to be there, Pirated up of course, trying to avoid FF!

That will be a special comedy moment, Chrissie being chased by every red blooded triathlete within a five mile radius.

It's going to be embaressing when Glad and I lose her by the first bend as were blowing out of our hoops at the back.

Now Gladys you're going to have to resist the urge to throw Marmite at her (since it's all you have in common )

I reckon our only hope of finishing remotely in the same time zone is if its a 2-lapper and we 'let' her catch us at the end of her second / our first!

You could offer to hold the collection bucket so you'll have an excuse to be at the back

Which is probably why she booked Thursday !!!

Would be great to have a solid pirate turnout.

Apparently 45mins run at "conversation pace" apparently. So a Pirate speed session then!

Mmmmm, Thursday is my day off Am very tempted. Although I don't have my pirate top yet. Could have my pirate water bottle sticking out my backpack though.

Might combine it with some Christmas shopping.... for me!

So it is true what Gladys was saying

5 miles in 45 conversational minutes may limit my conversation to "yes", "no" and "fur cough". Hardly on the Stephen Fry or Peter Ustinov scale of raconteuring, but I'll have a go.

I won't be wearing my larey yellow pirate clobber, mind. Wonderful as it is for garnering support in the last, exhausting stages of a race, it looks pretty deathly any other time. Hyde Park at lunchtime ain't the time to sport a bright yellow sausage skin and hotpants. Not unless I can fit in a full body wax and a spray tan it isn't anyway.

See you there chums.

sorry guys - I can't understand why you'd want to do this and get caught up with a bunch of other wannabees. it's all about celeb culture surely and you're going to get surrounded by a load of people who want to have their picture taken with her?? what else is the purpose??

don't get me wrong - Chrissie is a great athlete and great ambassador for the sport but I think she's getting carried away with her celebrity now. I've no idea who's advising her on PR but I think she can do better things than this if she wants to either promote the sport or do something for the charidees she supports..

Yes, but you get to meet up with other pirates .

Chrissie and I have already kissed anyway, so I can safely stay at the back. And if I come I WILL be pirated up. Come on STIL. Man up. (How to befriend a person you've never met before )
