Places available in the 2016 Great North Run

Posted: 03/02/2016 at 22:33

So you are selling a place for £345. Are you paying VAT on that?

Is running in -1 degrees Celsius bad?

Used to work in Atyrau in Kazakhstan and would regularly run at up to -20C; coldest I ever ran was -32C for a bet.

"Dry" cold so only major problem was eyelashes freezing so I used to wear glasses.

I've just got the Epson Runsense SF-810B; really good and it has an optical heart rate monitor.

Amazon are just about to do a lightning deal, (p.m. 29-12-15) though check it's not cheaper direct from Epson.

I've got the Epson, it's really good, would recommend it for running and biking. It has a bike specific mode.

Why aren't there parkruns in France, Germany, Spain, Italy etc?

Doctors note isn't required, probably because it's a run not a race.

That shows how much bullshit the medical note really is.

Make up your own certificate; easy to get the paper and you can "big" yourself up, award yourself how about: "Best Basingstoke Marathon Major Runner 2014"

Hi Guys,

Does anyone have an entry for this race that they can no longer use? Spoken to the race director who is happy for transfer.

Will pay entry fee.

Combe Gibbet to Overton 16 mile

Posted: 09/03/2015 at 21:57


Anyone who wants to enter the Combe Gibbet Race get your skates on as for the first time ever it looks like we are going to be full.

We normally make places available right up to the day of the race but this year it's likely we will close for entries early.
