Thanks Debra - someone sent me one in Newcastle that I'm tempted by. I have a target which usually would be manageable, but nothing like deciding to enter a race of a new distance four weeks before race date!
Hi all, I'm looking for a new challenge next year to renew some motivation for running after delving into triathlon for a bit and have a couple of options lined up, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any flat (ish) road 50ks between now and the end of January? Preferably in the UK, but would consider Europe.
Unless you know exactly what you're after, the expertise of most shops is worth paying the extra in comparison to online prices. Paying for an anlysis is a bit much though when there are plenty who'll go to the ends of the earth to help with anything you could wish. At worst it should be free if you make some kind of purchase.
Your fitness will still be significantly better than the start of the year so congratulations on that and achieving what is likely to have been one of your goals when entering the marathon. The thing that will hold you back on race day is to the extent your hurt is injury. A sports injury specialist will be able to give you a diagnosis on whether you should run (not a GP with little sports knowledge who will almost certainly err on the side of caution)
