Brass Monkey Half Marathon



  • i was the one that wanted to run with an ipod, i still think that at the time of applying this rule should be made clear and give the option then of entering knowing that music is banned.

    as it was i did run and without music so whoever that was in the black hat it wasn't me. i managed to pass the time by running to mile  with a couple of other people but was on my own from then to the finish, i really struggled  and am sure my time would have been better with something to take my mind of things , however finished in 2.08.35

    i always run with music and always on busy streets, i do not have the volume turned up so that it drowns out all traffic, and have never had a problem , i have always heard cars or even bicycles approaching from behind. i think if you use an ipod sensibly it doesn't pose a danger

  • I see your point Andrea and know that for many it's just impossible to enjoy running without music.  However, this girl did not subscribe to your good practice and couldn't hear a thing.   She was a bit of a liability I suppose, however I don't want to sound like I'm preaching - let he who is without sin throw the first rock etc etc image

  • i also cant find the link to rate the race - any ideas?
  • passed a few people with an earphone in under a hat image

    was a great day, ran a good solid training run at (fingers crossed) marathon pace and had company the whole way round image

    Well done, nsc image Nothing like the sense of fulfilment when someone's got where they want to be by dint of another's efforts.

    You doing FLM btw?
  • Please dont run with earphones/ipods in at all, you are exposed when people run up behind you, not all people are nice!!!!.

     I have run past runners with ipods etc and the shock has made them jump out of their skins, i know that it may be the fact that I am running past people but I think that it is the shock that people can get that close to them without  them noticing.

    PS I didn't get in the Brass Monkey Half
