well, it looks like a goer...... Pencil it in for September 25th 2005 . http://iccoventry.icnetwork.co.uk/0100news/0100localnews/tm_objectid=14799390%26method=full%26siteid=50003%26headline=on%2dyour%2dmarks%2dfor%2dhalf%2dmarathon-name_page.html
500 seems a bit less than other halfs in area...... other halfs? I've re-read yer post a few times.... 'tis but 7 miles, not a half. I'll not be entering this year :0( because even though I started this thread last year, I didn't actually find anyone to cover my on call. Not sure I'd do any good at it as I'm doing Worksop this Sunday.

1600!!!! Cool. Hopefully won't be last then :0) Vyrnwy was about 1400 I think. I'm taking this week easy, I started tapering about a week before.....a week before Lake Vyrnwy :0( , and haven't really tapered back up again, getting by on a 3 miler in the week and a longer run, 8 - 11 miles, on a Sunday. This is insufficient for a good time, but should get me around. I'm hoping for 2.10 Will try to do a couple of runs this week but we'll see.
I won't say "I'll see you there" because I won't. I never seem to see anyone off the forum at races but, hey ho.
