I did it the year before last, it was very good, had planned to do it last year, but I turned into a big scaredy cat about the ice (it was extremely icey)
The hill a the end is the best bit, trying to sprint finish up it....
whereabouts are you veester?
I'm in Manchester, Whalley Range. How about you? Do you reckon you'll enter this year?
A hill sprint finish? I'll give it a shot. It'll make my post race pint all the more welcome.
veester, if you ever fancy running with other people our club is only up the road from you
I am in Sale, I think I will enter it, its a good race. I try and get lots of our club to do it because its very beginner friendly
hows things in Kitt Green?
they've not put your stapler inside jelly have they?
have they switched the keys on your keyboard too?
Farnie - cheers for that. I've just stated running with Sale Harriers as Crossford Bridge isn't too far on my bike and it's convenient for my friend who works close by as well. But I'll keep your club in mind, it's also not too far..
btw - the membership links aren't working on the club page.
Nutty - That's three of us so far then. Hopefully it will be a great race. The reviews look promising. How did you get on in Berlin?
I got my race number today! Does anyone know what the timing system will be?
I only live down the road and have never done this one before. Did the Swinton half marathon in Oct that this club also organise and it nearly killed me. ha ha. But it was very well organised and great people. Looking forward to trying this shorter distance race. Plus I have been out of running for six weeks due to a cracked coccyx so I will be taking this one very easy. But at least it will give me something to get back in to training for.
See you all there!
This will be the 3rd time i will have done this race - although previously i did it with a friend (who no longer runs) so will be a big test for me to force myself out of bed on sunday just to do it on my own.
its a good course and it is a really mixed bag of runners. times for last year went from 31mins to an 1hour and 15mins for the 8.4km (like to work things out in km as it sounds further to me!!!)
And to be honest the hill at the end isnt too bad.....the one in the middle is much worse!
All in all its an ideal one for those who have done 5km and wanting to complete a 10km. Its not dead flat but at least its on tarmac/pavements so should'nt get too filthy in the rain!
Well I managed to do it in about 57 minutes this year and am very pleased with that.
Congratulations to all the fabulous women who participated, well done, you should be very proud xx
