Haven't done this before.
Will have to wait & see whether The Albion are at Wembley on this date before deciding to sign up!
Well, we're out of the JPT,
looks like I'll have to enter up now.
Have a FLM Gold Bond place and was thinking of entering this race. Is this too close to the Marathon or would it be a good "trial run".
Any advice gratefully received
I have done this a few times and found it to be a good trial run. It's a bit tough being 4 laps, but if you can get over that then it's a flat course and a fair amount of support, I would go for it, you don't have to race it flat out, just treat it as a training run
Thank you for that - panicing now as didn't realise what a huge undertaking running the FLM was.
Looking forward to getting my Sunday lie-ins back
I've signed up, managed a 17mile run training run last weekend but most of my training has only been up to 13 miles. Fingers crossed I can make it to the end!!
A little birdy told me that the momento will be a glass cube with runners in it, sounds cute, I really want one now so with have to get to the finish line even if it means crawling the last 3 miles!!
I've got that momento 3 times already! They're starting to get as common as medals now! Very nice though, and significantl more appealing than a medal.
Feeling quietly confident about this, have done a 22 in FLM training, and another 20 mile race. Planning to run at least 15 miles as slow as I can, and maybe stick in the last 5 at Marathon pace. No PB attempts from me!
Not much info about the race - or anything - on the site.
Has anyone tried to contact the organisers by e-mail? I've tried twice but had no reply.
Hi my club is organising it, have you any particular questions? I can find out for you.
What I know so far is, it is 4 x 5mile laps around going and it is a fast flat course. There will be chip timing. It starts at 9am and they still have entrys on the day. (If you go to the entry form I think it has a bit of information.)
Couldn't remember whether I'd entered so I e-mailed for the first time on Sunday 22nd. No reply so missed the pre-entry (£14) date of Thursday 26th. Tried again last Sunday - all to address above - but no reply.
Not sure I'm happy to pay the £20 on the day price given that I tried to get info before the closing date, but thanks for your reply.
is the map they have on the website.
Basically does a loop from seafront ferring, east, up george the 5th, west along goring rd, goring way and down sea lane ferring.
on my doorstep thats a bonus
Yep, enjoyed that one, although I'm sure the breeze along the seafront got stronger each lap!
Good steady run that will hopefully set me up for London.
As Liam says, a good, well run event. Amazing how well the course worked, the use of the cycle lanes was a great idea which allowed road running without tangling with the traffic.
