Hi everyone just stumbled upon this post. Wolves half will be my first half marathon (only because I cant make the date of the B’ham one) Seems a shame there are no Iso drinks and not much of a crowd motivation. They don’t seem to have mastered the art yet of putting on a decent event . Maybe we should rally round get the crowds in, invite everyone you know..and make them all bring drinks for us all..hahaAnyway just thought ide join the thread
you havent run it yet then?
have you decided it wont be a decent event already?

Is that your attempt at keeping your mouth shut
mr uno ran with him at stratford - i believe you have heard the tail
Rolf - I have not emailed the organiser regarding spectators handing out drinks. I think it should be fine, but I might drop an email just in case, I trust you will make the right decision and enter the full marathon?
it is against EA rules for runers to be given stuff i thinkunless your friends are willing to hand out stuff to anyone who wants them - then they are an aid station like the ones RW and Fetch do
however, i would think in a race this size no-one would notice, and it depends who is organising it
Ref: being handed out drinks by frends/spectators
Unless you are in the 1st few places nobody will care. I always get a bottle of isotonic drink from 'er Indoors at the start of the 2nd lap on these 2 lap courses. Never had an issue. I'm not a front runner but will be in the 1st 10-20% of finishers.
Nothing to worry about.
Yes, will do the full. Had best get out and get some miles in these next couple of weeks.
Sounds like that second lap could be lonely.
Harry, I hope you'll be wearing something fetching on race day...
Madlot, Marcusuno, I have entered this now.
I'll make sure you dont slack off
Re: Isotonics on the course; I emailed the marathon sec and they said that it wouldn't be a problem to pick up isotonics from friends/family as you run round.
There goes my excuse for when I crash and burn in the last few miles, if it hasn't already happened before then.
Anybody doing anythng daft like training for instance?
If so, how's it going?
since when do you do as you are told????
