  • Thanks for the heads up Dave, might be interested in this one if I don't feel too bad after Loch Ness

  • Be good to see you there.The route they have picked is perfect for Running.Plus having the roads closed is a bonus.Luton Hoo is were Jenson Button held his triathlon last week.

  • Mostly flat couple inclines but nothing.one at Luton Hoo the other on A6 but only short.

  • Cheers dave, suspect I'll be doing this one 

  • Entered, and looking forward to it. Got to be better than doing Stevenage's cycpleaths and subways which I had been planning to do the week after!

  • Entries now looking good.Lead car to follow and lead male and female bikes.As I said before closed roads up to 3 hours 

  • I'm now in the final stages of my ad hoc plan. Did a 10l last week with a massive PB. I should be well inside my goal time of 2 hours

  • Dave, when do you reckon entries will close?

  • if your injury isn't healed for the luton half the Bedford Half is on the 8th December 

  • another one is the silverstone half. that's well after xmas. £20 entry. can't remember whn it is

  • Luton closes week before unless full.If anyone has done the Luton marathon this route is not the same.Its all on road and as I said before roads will be closed.

  • Out of interest how many places are available?

    I must admit I'm quite looking forward to this, not yet done a half on closed roads.

  • It was set for 1000 but numbers have been to 1500

  • Should be a good day out. What times are people aiming for?

  • Kelvin, I'm targetting a PB so sub 1hr 49. Not as fit as I'd like but my PB was done off road so it's not quite out of reach. Realistically I expect to be close but not quite there and miss it by a few minutes.

  • 2Wheels we will help you all the way

  • I was expecting to do a sub 2 hour time as it's my first half marathon but due to a recent 10k time of 49.26 I may be aiming more for 1.50. But who knows what the conditions will be on the day. It'll be a pb whatever happens image

  • Couple of our runners will be out there if you need to,tag on to them let me know.
