The Wokingham Half for 2011 doesn't seem to be included in the RW events database. This is odd.
Whatever, I'm in!
Same here Muttley...panicked a bit when I saw the entries were at 1800 already, as I hadn't seen either a thread, or the event on this site.
Feared there were only 2000 places, but it's 2750...so not quite the urgency...but still...in now!
Have missed out on Reading though. Again it's not even on RW events! Can't believe a £30+ event with 18,000 places can go so quick.
100s of them will be on here in Feb trying to sell their places tho!
I wouldn't do the Reading if you paid me to because of the crowding. But I take your point, it's a shame when big events don't put themselves on this site. Potentially a problem because I've always thought this is the only one-stop-shop for all my races and entries.
I wonder why these events aren't putting themselves on RW.
Someone tells me that Reading was on here briefly, but soon taken off!
I think Reading is ok if you get to start from the front pen. My pal has done this and he's a similar pace to me, circa sub 1hr 20, and he reckons you start in the elite group at the front.
Now that would be fun, bearing in mind the winners do just over an hour
Not sure i'll bother doing it if i can't by hook or by crook get to start in the right pen. Otherwise you'd be fighting your way through! I used to do that at Silverstone, as when I got myself to the front I couldn't get near the right area and had to start at the 1hr 45 bit!

Hopefuly getting the train in for this one - then I can do a decent warm up, do the race & then beers in the `Hope And Anchor` afterwards.
Impressive website - link
One week and counting - Looking forward to this.
Will you be wearing any "dodgy" shorts Mr K?
I'm doing this and looking forward to it. Aiming for 2:35. Planning to do first half slow at MP and then pick up the pace a bit for the second half for a negative split. Well thats the plan anyway hahaha.
Doing this one , just done Watford half today, so hope to enjoy this flat course . ps can anyone give me a post code for canley park wokingham for my sat nav.
LWJ - so sorry to hear you won't make it.
Mr K - i'll keep an eye out for your racing snake then - oeerr..
I know it's late in the day, but if anyone has a spare place, I'm desperate to run. I've come back from a pretty nasty back injury a lot quicker than I was expecting, hence I didn't enter at the time.
