London winter run

High entry cost but should be a memorable event with snow zones, swiss stuff in the underpass, polar bear and st bernard dog hugs at the end (even some real dogs), inflatable giant snowballs for the warm up and a stunning medal.  Atmosphere should be great amongst the runners.  I'm in a group of at least 7 running together.


And no, I don't work for the promoters

Goalpost - There are three 'waves' of starts.  Try to get close to the front of yours then after a bit of congestion for the first half mile you should find clearish road in front of you to help get a good time.

Yep Runner Johnny I'm something of a regular now.  Expensive to enter but I enjoy the day so look on it as a treat

I shall also be trying to get as near to an hour as possible but expect to fail by around 50 minutes! Which I'll be happy with.

Have you been training properly RJ?

Er.....this might not be the sort of advice you were thinking of Laura.

But it is advice 

How do you intend getting there Laura?  Trains are usually a nightmare as they annually have engineering works along by Havant.

Aha! Well done Toby3 on starting the thread 

After my deferral I had an email today giving me until June sometime to get my guaranteed place.  So signed up today!

Those hesitating about entering because of the price should be aware that the entrance fee goes up in stages the longer you leave it!

Snowmaiden I was astounded to read you are aiming for 3:45 but I am sure you will achieve it.  I am aiming for a 2:30 finishing time, 2:30pm that is!
