I've just noticed it's the 20th and I'm already committed to something else that day
Oh well, plenty more races to look at!
Thank you anyway AH
Have been umming and arring about this half, Kenilworth Half (3 weeks later - if my club allows me to race rather than marshal it), and Brum half (another 4 weeks after Kenilworth).
Think I've decided to definately give this one a go (the half) for the first time as I'm a Wolves fan and have family there... then also do Brum half 7 weeks later, and just see what happens in between as to whether I race Kenilworth or not.
PB course? Does the course run past Molineux? (I heard it had in years gone by).
I'll look forward to seeing everyone there! Shame to hear that there's no ISO drinks for marathoners
Really wanted to do the "Where Eagles Fly" LDWA event in Cumbria the day before, but cash is limited, and B&B's are expensive.
So as this is 20miles down the road, I've entered.
As for drinks, may be running with the OMM rucksack and 2lites of water, it's all good training.
Wrekin Road Runners.
Best running club in Telford (appologies to any Harriers or TAC'ers).
Having worked in Wolves and the Black Country for the best part of the last 13 years I guess it's finally time to run around the streets.
Also did my Degree at Wolverhampton (Nightschool), so it does hold some memories for me.
Materials Science being one of the more unpleasant
Nice you guys will have some people to cheer you on. I have some friends that live very close to course, somewhere near the 8 mile mark on the map.
I think it will be lonely on the streets so will be a good pick me up, I'm sure they'll do lots of cheering for the rest of you too!!!
I always say a marathon is a good way to see a place and actually expect course to be quite pleasant. I ran 3 laps in and around Luton in December, I don't expect the course can be much worse, and I even pretty enjoyed it.
I'll look out for club kits, might even say hello at the start.
Luton is Grim isn't it ?
Once took a detour through there and felt sorry for the locals, dire post industrial fag end of a place.
Much like wolves
But I'm being harsh, the place does have it's rough diamond charm.
although it is nice to be able to run through Whitoreans (i think that is how you spell it) safely
it is a good run
I did the half last year, & can remember being so elated as it was the furthest I'd run after breaking an ankle 9 weeks before. I'm tempted by the full, as there's no time limit & I'm really slow!!
Did the Blackpool full & that was 2 laps. I didn't have a problem with that as I was so focused on completing my first marathon. But maybe 2 laps round Wolverhampton might be hard mentally......
Hi there ... I will be doing the half ... my first half ... and I'm slow .. and I haven't run that far and my knee whinges just thinking about it, LOL.
I just hope I don't come in after the last marathoner !!!!
Looking forward to heading back to my old stomping ground for this weekend but should it be for the full or the half? Decisions, decisions...
Harry, are the race organisers happy for spectators to dish out iso/gels etc., given that only water's provided?
