Hastings 100th Anniversary Marathon



  •  As I did not get into FLM this year thought I'd do a number of halves instead, enjoyed all three so far felt so good at Paddock Wood yesterday I decided  a full late on in the year might be good fun, this sounds interesting and have just entered, bring on those long autumn runs!! Done Beachy Head in the past and that was quite, er 'undulating' so can't imagine this will be quite as tough,  though I have been wrong in the past!!

    Good Luck to all , see you there...

    Sunluver, people on here who know me have probably been waiting for my response to your comment "Maybe Alzehimers is setting in " and I thought it better to keep my comments off the thread - you've got mail!

    Oooh, I see the number of entrants is rising steadily.

    Huffapuff (great name btw!), welcome to the thread. Beachy is fab isn't it. I'm hoping that the support at this marathon will be as good as the Hastings 1/2.
  • Hi Redhead

    Just entered Martin and myself for this one - though he doesn't know it yet. At least we've got the opportunity to practice some of those hills beforehand. Should be fit anyway we're planning on doing the Himalaya 100 in October. So we'll be fit or dead. And yes the Christmas Pudding Dash will be the following week.

    And Martin's running Paris this weekend. Doesn't look like much chance of it being as hot as last year.


  • Where do you find out how many people have entered
  • RedheadRedhead ✭✭✭
    Hi Cathy,

    Excellent news - it would be rude for us not to do it really wouldn't it! The Himalaya 100 sounds very exciting. Is that 100k or 100 miles? Regarding the entry numbers I was just going off what MrF said earlier and from my conversation with Eric. Good luck to Martin for Paris. Please tell him I shall miss his helpful words of wisdom at FLM image
  • I'm in!  Can't wait for this one image
  • Debs.... WOOHOO... 

    is Booty doing it as well?

  • We'll be at London cheering people on. Martin says make sure you don't drop any stitches.

    Himalaya 100 is 100 miles - and includes the everest marathon.

  • OK, I'm in too image
  • RedheadRedhead ✭✭✭
    Excellent, lots more people entered!

    Cathy, I am soooooo jealous. I have a secret desire to do a 100 miler one day. You must let me know what it's like. Please give Martin a <SLAP> from me - last year he said "have you dropped one?" as he ran past. Well, what's a girl to say to a question like that!

    Redhead, you have mail, also sorry if anyone was offended as none was intended.

    Cathy, doing a 100 mile run is one of my longer term dreams but it never included Everest..........please dont put any more ideas into my head.

    I cant wait for this race, it's gonna be so special and i'm very excited, 2 christmases in one year, whoopie!!!!!!

  • i've entered - yikes!

    FB, what about Petal? I'll try to watch my language this time although I can't speak for the Hippo imagehttps://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/wink_smiley.gif' />

    MF6, check out the schedules on RW or Hal Higdon and see if they suit you.

    Sunluver, thanks pet. See you at a local race soon I hope.
  • mark fox, try  http://www.halhigdon.com
  • nice to see I wont be the lone pirate at this ...  although for once I may well be the youngest   imagehttps://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/wink_smiley.gif' />
  • afternoon,all

    mark, i'm just about to do my first marathon in 3 weeks and 5 days (not that i'm counting). i only began running a year ago and before i started the training i'd only run 13 miles once and that was in the august. although i haven't proved it's worked for me yet, i've found it really good. it only requires 3 runs a week then 2/3 cross training sessions, pref cycling/swimming to help prevent injury.

    i found it by following the links on here.

    just another alternative- i think they are all good, just depends what suits you.

    good luck imagehttps://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />

  • Hi Susie,

    Do you know how many entrants there are now?  It's my track evening with the running club tonight and we might make a special announcement about the race.  Ta if you know, ta if you don't.

  •  i did hear it was already up to the 800s but i suspect that is a rumour no-one seems to know for sure.
  • The Hal Higdon programmes look pretty good.

    Good luck to everyone who's entering - glad to see there'll be a few first timersimagehttps://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />
