hash that sounds like a plan I'll take you up on that, thankyou
re the trains
I got a train from liverpool street early last sunday and had to get a bus replacement service for cheshunt and it tooks absolutely ages. Not sure this is still the case but worth checking
Looking forward to this one. Done it the last couple of years, but never really gone for it, especially in the heat of last year! Does anyone remember was it 9:30 start last year, as recall it was nice until about 5 mins before the off, when walking through the hedge to the start, then the sun shone down on us!!
if it's anything like today ......................
it is seriously warm out there :<
I had a bit of a taster in a 10km two weeks ago, but a 10 mile in the heat, it will be just like last year. Good for the spectators though!
thanks a million vicnvin.
i'm coming into Harlow Mill at 8:31, hopefully in time to register & get sorted for the start.
does anybody know if the whole course has changed, or is it just the last bit with that hill i had to walk up!?!
It looks like the first 3 miles are pretty much the same, then it seems to go out in the countryside a bit more, rather than those damned cycle paths! The last 600m or so coming in to the finish seems the same too.
The g-maps of this year and last are on the harlow website, if you want to look at those and compare, thats what I did. Someone local may be able to help more.
We have ~370 so far entered with race limit of ~500. We do usually get ~100 on the day , so I would walk quickly from the station to be safe. (10-15 min walk, or a 5-10 min jog).
Thats useful info. One of my clubmates is entering tomorrow, we should be there for 8:30 as it takes about an hours drive, so hopefully that should be early enough do you think?
I would recommend arriving as early as you can, especially if driving, to ensure you are parked in time to enter. I would think that arriving ~1 hour before the race should be sufficient, but if a large number of people fancy entering at the last minute, we cannot guarantee it.
If coming by train, I wanted to draw attention to the fact that there were 2 train stations. Harlow Town is 2-3 miles away where, trains arrive more frequently and earlier, but you have to be able to get from there to the race HQ. The other, Harlow Mill, is walkable via Old Harlow (0.5 miles), but trains are much less frequent
I'll be going past whichever station is in the middle of Harlow about 8am (ugh!). I can fit two people in the car so if anyone wants a lift from the main Harlow station, I was going to say e-mail me but it's notoriously dodgy so best post something here before about 7pm this evening
Loon, see you about 8.15am? I know it's early, but I'm paranoid about having to park in Sawbridgeworth or somewhere
Fat Face and Sezz - see you tomorrow. Meeting up again without beer being involved!
Cheers, will let her know to get there as early as possible.
If anyone else entered online, could you confirm that we have to collect our number tomorrow please. I know thats pretty standard with online entries, but could not find much info on the hrc website.
SS i entered online and got my number through the post. when did you enter?
I would imagine at a push yu could park in the Tesco car park, or old harlow car park, but they're a fair walk from the start. the main car park would obviously be the sport centre car park, but as already said, it wil fill up really early.
would say old harlow and tesco are about 10 minutes walk away unless you are a speedy walker/run it
hash, 8:15 will be great, thanks, time to hit the bar before hand he he he
I am so going to be last in this
If you have entered online and have not yet got your number, you can pick it up at the late entries desk in the sports hall.
For parking, you will be directed by marshalls on arrival at Mark Hall school sports centre.
Good luck to all running tomorrow.
Yes, there is a bagagge storage area.
HRC may have access to some additional parking... Follow directions from the race HQ
Glad there's a baggage store area.
My bag may clank a lot
I'm on my 2nd glass of red wine.
Shows how seriously I'm taking this
Yeah, we've just have had huge portion of Tiramasu and FF is on his 3rd bottle of beer **
** correction, his 4th bottle.
Thanks for info re baggage.
I was slowed up by the sponge syrup pudding I was eating.
Should be arriving just before 9am tomorrow............. but o/h is driving me so if we have any parking problems he'll drop me off & find somewhere.
Good luck all!
