Hello. I am working with Ordnance Survey on a research project they are carrying out into how people plan, carry out and record their outdoors activities, including running. There is a survey here where you can share your thoughts and everyone who enters will be in with a chance of winning one of three £100 vouchers for their favourite outdoor retailer: bit.ly/outdoors-2013
I would like to emphasise that this is not a sales push disguised as a survey - Ordnance Survey are simply trying to find out how people use maps, whether that is paper or digital, so your answers will not result in a shower of spam!
There is a campaign started by the people behind Xempo where anyone can tell the world about the achievements of another runner. Obviously as runner we love to give others the credit they deserve (erm, probably) and this is the opportunity to do it. I am just waiting for one of my so-called friends to cotton on and tell the world what a great runner I am... probably! http://ow.ly/mqRh9
Hi Bud, could you recommend a great half marathon for the autumn. My coach has said that he will only allow me to run the Pisa marathon in December if I achieve a PB in late September or October, so I need a good race to get the time. My coach is a bit mean-spirited like that... Hope you're well.
My wife ran a race and was 10 seconds outside the qualifying time, so she didn't get in./ However I would say that there is a chance that the scruitineer that looks at your application might rubber stamp it, so send it in. Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
