• 1150 and something need to get your entry forms in!
  • Number arrived today 1349. Am i right in thinking that places are limited to 1800?

  • I was starting to get worried as my number hadn't arrived yet but arrived on Saturday I'm 1312. 

    Wow I'm really doing it!!!  So looking forward to it now.

  • It seems to take four to six weeks before your number arrives for anyone who is waiting for it.

    Hope you enjoy the race Emma.

  • My number only took a few days to arrive so me and my brother are signed up now! Hope we can do some training and stay injury-free.

     It`ll be his first half and my second as I`m planning to do one in June. I take it that it`s pretty flat. I hope it`s well organised and friendly for us! See you there!

  • Fingers crossed that I'm not too late. I sent off my application last week but I haven't heard back yet.  I've run it twice before but not since 2001 (at least I think it was 2001!).  A great race, nicely sheltered by trees.

    Yes Road Rodent, I read that there's an 1800 limit. The website hasn't been updated with info to say that the limit has beeen reached so hopefully I've sneaked in.   

  • My number was 1300 and something so I reckon you`ll have made it! Enjoy!

    deary me

  • I'm in!!! number 1673, must be pretty close to the limit now. If only I could shake of this injuryimage
  • Bloooody hell, only heard about this today from a work colleague who is from around those parts, its going to be a quick decision if I want to do this one!!!  From everything I've from Tourist info it should be a cracker - need to speak to the missus to see if she wants to make a weekend of it - might only mention the race on the way down !!

  • Sent my entry in yesterday. Hope I'm not too late. It's one of those races I've wanted to do for many years but something always cropped up. Start planning early I think.
  • Race is now full.

    Entry went off on 28th April so fingers crossed!!!

  • Entry form sent back with apologies


  • Really looking forward to this. Someone said the last mile is really fast. How come? Down hill?

    Any other tips about the course?
  • The last mile is down hill to the finish.

    However, the course is quietly undulating and deceptive as just when you think you have rounded the top of the reservoir, you go round a bend and realise you have around 4 miles still to go.

    You'll know what I mean when you are doing it.

  • My tip would be don't blow your bo**ocks in the first (fast) 6.5 miles.
  • WA Is right, when I said 4 miles, I meant 4 miles till you get round the top of the reservoir !!!

    You still have to run down the other side to the finish.


  • Ta! I`ll bear that in mind. I`d really like to get a tidy time in this one.
  • stuart72 can you e-mail me - princemadoc at hotmail dot co dot uk


  • Looking forward to it! Only just remembered that it`s a 1pm start.
  • OK folks I'm tapering but just wondering if I can get away with NOTHING between now & Sunday ?

    Anyone make a stab at forecasting the weather ??  

  • Tapering!  i'm just getting back into training after injury.  My tapering will begin Saturday.

    I believe the weather should be dry, with normal temperatures for the time of year, but things will probably change by Sunday.

    Good luck everyone who's running.

  • Camlo - I hope so. I`ve got some PF at the mo, seeing the physio tomorrow and haven`t run since last Wednesday! Still fully intend to run the lake!
  • Trust you have already checked your details are correct (subject to the handful of changes I had phoned through from teh organiser last night which aren't on site yet)

    Let me know if anything needs tweaking! Otherwise, see you there!!

  • Hi,

    See I am down as unattached, I am with Oswestry Olympians, is it possible to change my details? My no is 955.


  • What`s the crack for number transfers? I know someone who can`t run and someone who wants to replace them.

  • Weather? Sunny intervals and 17 dgrees!
  • Tricia - I'll fix that for you but you're not with the bulk of OO entrants so you mustn't have out your club on the entry form - Margaret is very careful transcribing the information.

    OO had a block of reserved numbers.

  • Thankls for that. I am sure Margaret is correct. I think I might have entered about the time I became a member of OO.
  • i have been asked to replace some one who has dropped out, in the past people have just re registered on the day, is this still acceptable? as i have now agreed to fill in.
