More Sun journalists cleared. Baffled by the fact that the person accepting the bribe was found guilty, but the people paying the bribe were not guilty.

Last year 13 people took longer than 20 minutes. Presumably they ran faster in the first half and then faded. But you wouldn't enter planning to do that - who'd want to enter knowing they were likely to be last in 21:30?

I could be tempted. It would be an interesting experience knowing that you are under pressure not to finish last.

Reading Half Marathon this weekend

It's hard to beleieve that it has been a whole year since we were reading tales of derring do...and Samir leading the Reading Half marathon.


The forum needs another Team GB style thread to bring back some of its mojo.

I am not wound up about it Miffi, I was just wondering why 15 West had adopted the pro Netty opnion.

15 West, I think the no stated cut off time is a nonsense argument. If the race director sees someone out of their depth in comparison to the field, he is perfectly entitled to make a decision accordingly.

I'm on her side. Go Netty! 

Why? The race director should be perfectly entitlted to make a decision with regard to a tail runner, when they are seriously falling behind the field. Why should volunteer marshals have to hang around for an extra hour for 1 person.

The amount of self righteous indignation on behalf of Netty is staggering. The only positive to be gained from the sorry saga is that it has started a discussion about the problem of dealing with slower runners.  

What is your oldest item of clothing you still wear?

I find it a bit odd, too.

My immediate reaction to being lost would be "find a map" not "get someone else to rescue me".


A map! embeded in a device that can be used for making telephone calls! who would have thought that was even possible?
