Hi Paul. Last year it was limited to 250 runners, split between the marathon and half marathon runners, and I guess it will be the same this year. There seemed to be pretty much a 50/50 split. A good run out and back and a good medal
A long trip for a half marathon though isn't it!
Hi hansyhobs. Yup, sadly most of this run is nowhere near the common, or for the most part Wimbledon itself. It starts on the common, then goes to Raynes park, before returning to Wimbledon common to finish. It is a fast'ish 10k, with one hill downwards which goes on for a long time, and an up hill which goes on for a few minutes, but not too serious. I run on the common all the time, and can't work out why runs aren't arranged to run just there. (Apart from the weekly 5k runs every Sat morning!) Shame. Do it though as it is a good, very well organised run.
Hi Steven. Im using this run as part of my training for the Amsterdam marathon, which i think is the same weekend as Dublin. Definately a good idea to do a few half's before the big day, and this should be one of them! I'm currently doing at least one half marathon distance each week, which gets longer week by week plus some shorter runs. In general, you do get a very mixed field in these runs, so you should feel comfortable somewhere in amongst us all. Hope to see u there, and good luck in Dublin.
DR5. Maybe, just maybe, the sun really will come for us!
