Done this once, back in 2005.
Haven't done any other 5k's so looking forward to this.
Won't you be done by the 15th (I don't know the actual day of IM btw)
Will ponder Bearbrook............
Hi folks. I've done this one before. It seems quite challenging for a 5K - I see now that they reckon the second half is mostly uphill - that would explain it then. I do quite a few 10Ks so I come to this one expecting it to be a piece of cake, and it isn't!
Looking forward to it. The last couple of years school events have got in the way. This year I have booked to run and now a school event has cropped up, but I am probably still going to run it and then go on to the school afterwards (well there could be some champagne or at least wine involved )
Hoping that Steven will join us on the thread as he usually lets us know how many folks are running in each category. Nice when the organisers join in on the thread.
I've done this a few times before. Yes, the second half is mostly up hill, but the first half is mostly downhill of course to compensate! It is fine if you just grit your teeth on the climb! And there is a nice flat final 1k lap around the manor house where you can recover from the climb, to allow you to put in a dazzling sprint on the home straight!
I'm hoping to it again this year, but have a work meeting during the afternoon which might mean I'm too late. Will enter on evening if I do it.
Had an email with race details. Apparently we collect numbers on the day.
Looking forward to it. So few 5Ks around down here (apart from Race for Life). They seem to get loads more up North.
EdKings - Nice idea to make it a 10K - but please not twice around the same circuit - only because that gives us 2 very long drags. There may be scope for alternative routes of course!
Going around the back of the Manor, having seen the finish, is a bit of a killer but at least a good opportunity to view other parts of the estate!
Must come for a less formal visit soon.
Plenty of photos from this lovely race now online
