Unlike KPO I now CAN enter Sheffield again this year, damn that VLM ballet
Still, like you say, it is a great race
just entered this great race along with Leeds aswell hope to be back on form by then
doing Bransley 10k tommorrow
Whats the minimum age for the half marathon? Haven't been able to find anything about age catagories...
well nearly right
did Bransley 10k in 44 mins good hilly race
just entered - only done Great North Run 3 times.... and a full marathon in March this year which near killed me - i swear never again .... done NOOOOO running at all since - but need to stay fit and feel like a slob, so half marathons i think i'll be able to get back to.
(bearing in mind when i say i've done 3 - the first i mostly walked - the second i did 50/50 walk/run and only the third one did i do without stopping - time 2 hr 06. the marathon - totally different ball game in hlly connemara - not recommended for first timers!!!! i got around in just over 5hrs... (about 100 behind me just..)
You Sheffield runners.. tell me abit about the course - is it mostly a roads/flyovers?? whats the best/worst bit of the course? Which are the killer bits? And soooo cruel that bit around the stadium at the end ????
Little Whippet - do you know Sheffield at all? If so I can tell you the exact route, but a bit pointless if you've no idea what I'm talking about!
It's pretty flat really though (flat for Sheff anyway) - a couple of little climbs, but overall a quickish course I think.
im in this again just entered after being let down by the vlm ballot and slimmingworld team
their loss is sheffields gain, i say
Finally got this ( my home ) Half Marathon as my PB after 5 years of trying .
I shall be there as always, great event / race.
I've entered this one again. I missed out doing it last year due to ITB. Hopefully, this year, injury won't scupper my chances. It will be my first half so i'm looking forward to it. (again !)
Think I might do this one...
Not too far from me...I can make the time limit....medal.....t-shirt......Sounds good to me....I'll just see if it clashes with anything.....
Got my entry ready to post today.
See you there Ning.
This was In the newsletter from the organisers that arrived in my email this morning....
"Entries for this year’s SIG Insulations Sheffield Half Marathon are continuing to storm ahead of the 2009 event and could reach entry limit at the earliest point to date, say organisers. The race, one of Sheffield’s biggest sporting spectaculars, has already reached more than 3000 entries, almost 1000 ahead of the same time last year."
If you're planning on doing this event, but haven't yet entered, it might be a good idea to get in sharpish!!
I got my confirmation for this a few weeks ago.
Ive got Leeds to do after then Edinburgh marathon on 23rd.
Is Sheff better then Leeds for spectator support?
welcome to the gang david
cant compare the support in leeds to sheffield as ive never done leeds but if we get as much as last year this is well supported
have fun doing this and leeds
im doing edinburgh in may too got a few halfs before this and the kilomathon as part of my training
