Races measured short

Well that's pretty bad news! Question marks over my HM and 10K PB.

There's 5 or 6 notable races on that list attracting quality fields so there'll be lots affected.

So apparently a guy dressed as a shoe saw Natasha go under a barrier *link*

I doubt it will happen but I hope she makes a public apology!

Can you warn us when you link the s*n?

I clicked on it before I realised it was that rag.

My reading of the GFA page on the London Marathon web page is that the GFA times are now set for 2017.

Championship runners all get 2 chips - presumably just to make sure they're picked up since prizes and qualification spots could be at stake.

Thanks both. I'll get London out the way then start some accommodation research!

Well done everyone who ran this year!

I'm mulling over running next year. What was the entry process like? I can qualify, so is it just a case of registering in September via the website or do you need to go through one of the tour companies?

Free Park Runs

Pretty short sighted from the council. It's possible that a popular parkrun would lead to additional maintenance, but it sounds like they've just identified something they can whack a levy on.

If they try and force it through I imagine that parkrun will just stop, but it'd be amusing to see them attempt to charge individual runners for using the park. It could create a whole argument about what constitutes walking/jogging/running!

Do GPS units "wear out"?

Posted: 12/04/2016 at 11:05

Well my 110 wore out. The GPS unit itself wasn't too bad, but after a few years' hard use the strap virtually disintegrated and ended up being comprised more of duct tape than strap. Got a 225 now and it's much quicker finding satellites and also has a strap that looks like you can replace it.
