Just entered this, Anyone else? I don't get to race much so look forward to it already.
How hilly is it?
Back to fetch.
Thanks Nice to hear 'gentle' it means I have a decent chance of beating my first 10k time
I have just recieved my running numer today. I have a minor niggle in my knee but raring to go. Looking forward to finishing and getting my medal or t shirt.
Jo have you been doing much training for this?
I can't really avoid hills (leek staffordshire) so not too worryed. I have just started doing some "speed training" so I am hopeing to see a bit of improvement. mmmm' hope I'm not being too optomistic.
Got my number too dirt monkey..........300
I'm doing it - hopefully my knee injury will be ok and I'll get through it.
I'm not quite in the shape I was in for last years Sheffield Half Marathon, but this race is the acid test to see if I can possibly run in Sheffield again this year.
It's also going to be my friends first ever run - so it'll be a case of nursing each other round I think. I'm doing this one instead of Lincoln and I may do the Rother Valley 10km if the weather isnt as hot as it was last year - because that is "pancake" flat although windy on the back straight!
First chipped race for me, I hope that helps bring my time down a bit!!
I want get under 52........ the closer to a sub 50 the better.
Will use you as a marker to try for that elusive sub 50, although I think it will be more than likely around 52/53ish as I know the course!!
If I can at least keep you in view I know I will be doing well.
Adrian I also live in Dronfield and its good to know we have such a well organised race on our doorstep.
I have entered this one as my first race in 2 years , my aim is to get round without walking!!
If I am under an hour I will be dead chuffed,
I used to run a lot, but lost interest a couple of years ago, I am hoping that it will get me back into it, and give me a benchmark to move forward.
Only time will tell !!
I'll see you Tues for that last run before the race
Goodluck everyone.Il be the one with the oxygen tank trundling behind me. Im hoping my last runs will be wednesday and friday. Looking forward to getting the tunes pumping and the heart ticking.
Good luck everybody.
Enjoy that pasta!
Good luck everyone, I've done all the prep I can and apart from a little bit on Friday - my thighs and calves are crying "enough you fool!"
This run will definately be a "blow the cobwebs away" run - not done much running since last years Sheffield Half Marathon. Plenty of gym work but theres not substitute for road running.
See you all at the start - I'm taking a newbie on his first run - so if I finish last....its his fault
Think of the post race stella and sunday dinner. thats enough to get me round
