Hi there. If you enter races, how much are you prepared to pay? My first one, to be held this Saturday cost £12. I have no idea of this was good or overpriced But I wanted to have one to focus on and it was the soonest I could do.
I realise that some of you will advise to just run outside for free so I'm really only asking those who willingly pay to enter races!
A friend suggested we do the Great South Run and the entry fee is a whopping £41!! I thought this sounded a lot (I do appreciate the huge efforts which go into organising these things, as well as the costs involved). This is also for 5k so it seems a huge difference from my Big Fun Run.
I'd like to hear your experiences please. Perhaps you could tell me why you bother entering these races, especially if it's not done for a charity (my friend sometimes just enters them for fun, no fundraising involved), seems an expensive hobby so there must be a good reason for it. Atmosphere? Meet with people you 'talk' to on forums? get a different experience? Better timings? Please tell all!
