I should have waited to get prime top-of-the-page advertising space, shouldn't I? Never mind.
Good luck yourself Yeti! It falls a week after the Robin Hood mara and a week before a family wedding for me. Oh, and a 7-miler the day after the wedding!
It occurs to me that there may be several hostelries along the route still open for business... beats water stations
There are loads of pics of runners doing the last rowheath, if you let me have your number from the race I can send them on. One of our club members took them all.
Local 10k week before Bham Half

Nobody seems to have mentioned Centurion's GP 5M series, Nov 09 to Apr 10...
Centurion Grand Prix 5 or Centurion Grand Prix Series
I have a 5 mile PB to beat now! There were quite a few Centurions at Cov last night. Didn't spot any Bournville Harriers. Quite a nice race, and the rain just about held off. Don't understand why they had to lock the pavilion changing rooms just before the race though.
I'm thinking about doing a few of the Centurions GP races. The Jan 3rd one might be a bit awkward, mind.
Prior engagement, Chris - Robin Hood mara. Nuneaton was on my original list of 'possibles' for that date, along with two maras and two 10kms!
I'm hoping to do a couple of 10 milers later in the year - the Rugby & N'hampton one at Draycote Water (if I ever find any details for it) and Thirsk (oop north), both in November.
Good luck though. I've heard it's quite nice. May turn up at the Midland Road Relays the following Saturday, though I may or may not take part as a) I'll still be recovering and b) I'm marshalling the Acorns Midnight Walk that night.
BTW - anyone know anything about the Shakespeare Raceway 10k, 21 Nov? There's an event page on RW, but the event website quoted there, raceways.eu, doesn't exist!
I've emailed email@example.com, although if the www.raceway.eu site doesn't exist, her email address may not either!
As for coming last, a) it's very unlikely and b) so what if you do? There's no stigma!
Did you miss CoacH on Friday?
I did although his wife tells me it's gonna get tougher, obviously no more Mr Nice Guy!!
lol I suppose training's got to be tough, else there's not much point!
I may not be there on Tuesday, and if I am I probably won't do the full session, as I'm taking it easy now in the run up to next Sunday's mara. I'm looking forward to running 'normal' distances again!
R-K (again) mark did it last yearit looked absolutely vile10k run on a runway so completely flat and therefore some fast times were run
i will see if i can find the link on our club site
hmm - it was in march this year so it may not be the same racebut i seem to remember the organiser was called catherine
Never mind - thanks Lurker. If I get any response I'll let you all know.
If it's any help Spence, the slowest finisher in the March 10k there was 81:52 - now I'm sure you can beat that!
it looks hideous though chrisit would be like track runningi need more than that to enjoy a race
even the conductive education - which i admit to doing because it is nice and flat - has something nice to look at as you runthat place looked empty and souless
I pretty much agree with everything you say. It was ok as a one off for me, but that is it and it is not really on my schedule as a return trip.
It's ok. I found it this morning. D'oh
see you tonight
So. It's gone a bit quiet here. Nothing happening in the West Midlands?
nothing happening this weekend at all
actually R-K, you must get some of yor club to do our xmas yacht handicap race, it's a bit of fun, teams of two, you predict your combined time, run 3 ish miles and whichever team is nearest to their prediction wins and then we all drink tea and eat cakes

Oh yeah, I thought everyone had lost interest in that after Ms Radcliffe pulled out with a sore throat...?

Wot? No beer?
The Courgette & Chocolate cake was very nice, by the way. Didn't taste of courgette or chocolate, but very nice all the same!
