It's all a bit complicated, I would go for 2 prizes max

I was running a race folk could win their overall prize, say top three, and their own age group too. So even if a 61 year old won the race they would only get the V60 prize as well as first place, rather than the V40 and V50 prizes too (as they are not in those categories)

Wether I'll organise a race is negligable tho

Are ultra runners fast or plodders?

Surely they are made better physiologically too? The wear and tear that your joints get are immense.

Whwn your hip flexors are moaning after a 15 mile run it makes me think about the ultra guys and how they manage it!!

Matt - nope. By 10 tomorrow am I will be nearing 70 miles for the week after an early 10 miles, then it's a deserved trip to Brum and a few beers hopefully seeing the mighty Cherries win their 4th game on the spin v City.

Then it all starts again - national xc relays Saturday after, then Surrey lge xc week after that.

Much like every winter - race,race,race,footie,race,race,race,footie..and repeat

Prizes are not important it's racing, position and times that count!! You'll be telling me next that you have a collection of fun run medals!!

Watch it  

Vouchers, vouchers, vouchers. And vouchers again..make this pastime useful at least!

Phil Pub and his mate from Kent AC have twisted my arm to register. My one and only other one was 2.49 from London 2004, so sub 2.45 is primary aim. Apart from that, the stag do's have dried up and I need a break

This WILL be my last one. (IF i get in..)

Dachs - I bow to your racing line! Infact there were no marshalls at all around that bit when I did it! Take 30 seconds off then...i'll let ya..

Prizes are silly with only one each - there should be a max of three. Race position, male finisher (if they do it) and first age group. It's all a bit egotistical I know, but if you win a race as a V40 and you don't get the V40 prize, it niggles a bit.....

Like the CP10. Like others have said, it's a decent course and good value for money. It always seemed like it was sticking a finger up at the big BUPA races by 'keeping it real'.

The only bit that annoyed me was on the wide road at 5/6 miles (opposite Ham Lands) I stuck to the middle of the road and loads took the right hand pavement, taking a good bit out of the course, as it bends to the right. The blighters

I am in need of new running shoes.  I just almost had a rush of blood to the head and nearly ordered Adizero Adios Boosts.  Fortunately, my calmer head prevailed, and I shall first ask whether anyone is running in them at the moment and how they're getting on.

Registered for Berlin - going to buy some of them if I get in. Not sure if it will get me sub 2.04 though!! Very good reviews
