Isn't Tim Dale 2 on the scene anymore to do such tasks?
Oh no I didn't!
Yes I did!
I like the way he disappeared when his lack of any running knowledge was exposed.
My favourite part was saying would the Wycombe half put him up in a hotel, and then claiming he lived in Cookham...even though the 2 are about 5miles apart if that!!
I see some of the posts are quite old , im doing it for the first time this year , just wondering do they usually send the race numbers out or do you get them when you get there ?
You get your race numbers on the day of the race.
Good luck - I will be the person at the back walking the dog (genuine reason for not running - bad back!)
Enjoy the race.
Nice downhill bit at 1/2 mile - horrible hilly bit at 5 miles (my age sorry - don't work in km!) which is hard work! Long section along river bank which takes very near 3 pubs!
Run through a chuchyard at about 4 1/2 miles which is quite amusing!
JB - hills in Glos area? Plenty of them...look to the East. Cotswold escarpment!
Im not doing this, but if the church you run through is down by Odda's chapel, then it is gorgeous.
the church is 200 yards away from Odda's Chapel --- there is a wedding at 1.00 so hope we do not have some really slow runners!
Yes I know Rowan! I ran through the village on Friday evening. Stopped for a quick looksie around the Chapel and the church, and took a pic of the Angel! Had a little drink from the blue pipe on the side of the church too.
Amazing to think the church and chapel are around 1000 years old!
Deerhurst used to be a very powerful town in Roman Times - think Canute signed a treaty here in 1012 in an island in the river which disappeared ages ago.
Here ends the history lesson!
JB - go and join Tewkesbury AC - they are a friendly bunch, im sure there are a few hills sessions you can do with them! Good mix of abilities too...and a good social scene
It is quite a slope on the A38 heading north - jest after the Mythe treatment works....only one hill, but good enough for a few repeats!
thanks - we had about 40 odd people probably helping out - we should have helped raise a decent sum for Tewkesbury Hospital and the club
see you there next year - hope to be running then!
Brilliant - will put official times up on web-site in next couple of days.
We will slowly build race up to 300 runners over next 3 or 4 years - some people will never like cross country so slightly restricted - not sure if we lost some from doing the 1/2 marathon the week before.
