Best running headphones???

Posted: 22/10/2011 at 16:12

Has anyone got a recommendation of a good mono earphone to use while running?

 I want to be able to hear traffic etc and I normally just run with one stereo earphone in my ear and one tucked in my sportsbra, but the sound quality obviously suffers... I haven't been able to find a mono earphone which will stay in place while running - any suggestions? Many thanks!

Has anyone else who is doing the Nike 10K's on 16 Oct not yet heard which of the 3 London parks they're supposed to be running in? The website says we should have been notified about which park we've been allocated to but I haven't heard anything and they're not emailing me back in a hurry...

Number of women runners

The official number of women finishers was 10,464, which puts me at 20% - very happy with that! The total number of overall finishers was 35105 (iofficially - I think quite a few come in after the time limit), hope that helps...

Repatriation Area

One practical point regarding Horseguards Parade - there were 2 arches leading from the square onto Whitehall - if one of these had been an entrance and one an exit, with appropriate signs and marshalls, then life would have been a lot simpler for everyone with a single file system in place. As it was, people were trying to squash through both arches in both directions and the whole thing ground to a halt for the half hour we tried to get through...

Where's my result???

Posted: 18/04/2005 at 11:55
Although my results are there, there's a spelling mistake with my name (a small problem I know, compared to those posted above, but I'd still like it corrected!) The organisers' phone lines are constantly engaged - is there no email address they can provide where we can list details of all these issues? It must make things easier on both sides than constantly trying to call and getting frustrated... and it might mean they get corrected by the official results publication, which would be nice.

Does anyone know where to find photos of the race? There were a lot of official photographers around the course, but I can't track any pics down! And of course I'm desperate to see the expression on my face as I finally crossed the line... thanks!

adidas Flora Liverpool Half Marathon

I'm seriously annoyed, I still haven't got my pack and am leaving for Liverpool this afternoon so it's too late now... I've called the Flora helpline 5 times to try to get it re-sent but it's obviously not worked!! Worryingly poor organisation...

I can pick the pack up on the day but is there anything good to know beforehand please?! how long do I need to get there beforehand, how long do people hand their kit bags in before the race, I guess bin liners are good, weather looks sunny but cold...

Thanks for any tips, and good luck everyone!!
