Moscow Marathon

So after drinking too much post London Marathon someone suggested Moscow Marathon. 

Anyone "been there done that"?  Good race? Easy to get around etc??

Anyone got a spare place for Essex 20

WoW - old thread just emailed me

It is all good - since I first made this post I have met many of the LOSS guys and found them to be very friendly, helpful and some are very fast too  

I have spoken to the Chairman on a few occaisions and as pointed out in an earlier thread - it was just poor timing with people being busy etc - so no issue fromn me at all towards LOSS - in fact if anyhing I would recommend them, since meeting their members.

I can say they have been an exceptional club for anyone to be a part of - so for sure this thread can be closed, and marked as "all is well."

App for recording runs?

Runkeeper for me.  Easy to use,  logs it all on a website as well as your phone.

Thanks for the replies all.

I wanted to post as I did get a reply in the end from the LOSS Chairman who apologised for the lack of repsonses etc. 

Whilst I have not signed up, I do think once someone has made the effort to apologise it's fair to to accept it and put the matter down as closed.

Thanks again for the replies.

I run from around Thames Drive to the Broadway and back in a kind of loop - along the seafront.

Longer runs from around Thames Drive to the seafront passing Chalwell station - to the Pier and back.  Do you use Runkeeper by any chance?

Hi Debbie,

Just picked this thread up - I will send over my contact info for sure.  My only concern would be that I live in Leigh - and Rochford I assume train in Rochford - but lets see first before writing the idea off.  Someone suggested Castle Point too.

I have given up with LOSS.  I even found a phone number for the Chairman there and left a voicemail - still never got a reply.  Just plain rude if you ask my opinion and a club perhaps I would rather not be involved with if thats how they treat interested newcomers.  

Moving on - I will send over my details.

Hi All,

I have recently got myself into running and I am entering all sorts of races along the way - just did my first 5K, booked the Spartan Sprint (eek), Southend on Sea 10K and I am loving it.

When I was at the 5k race seeing lots of running clubs there, I thought that looks like fun, and duly found my nearest club to be Leigh on Sea Striders. 

I emailed them, twice - no answer, even stalked ther group on Facebook and asked about the process in joining them via a couple of their admins on Facebook - but not one response.  So two questions

1) Has anyone got a contact for LOSS that I could approach?

2) Does anyone know if there are any other running clubs in Leigh I could get in touch with?

Or am I doing this wrong?!?
