Yep, I'll be there. I too have only just started running. I entered the Great South in September and ran 1hr 18m which I ran quite pleased with for a first attempt. I've been putting in the training for this one and hope to manage a 1hr 15m depending on conditions?!?!
Anyway, best of luck. Best thing to do is find someone to run with. Your bound to find someone of your own ability who can run with you.
