I have only ever done gosport half and really need to venture out abit!

    Hi Zoe

    I have done this race last year. It was my first ever HM and I found it very nice and well organised and very enjoyable apart from the weather... I have signed up for it again this year hoping that it will at least stay dry this year.

    I have also done Gosport HM last year and considering doing it again this year
  • I looked at the course profile and it seems quite undulating! 

    Quite expensive for a half, have to enter this weekend as cut off date is 31 august

    i have done gosport 4 times and its my local race, hopefully do it this year too as well as great south run

    It can't be any more expensive than the great south run?
  • JindaleeJindalee ✭✭✭
    No idea how much the great south run is but the NF half is ??26 unaffiliated
  • Your right great south run is 40 quid! Probably last year I will run that race,


    going to sign up now!

    maybe see you there Zoe image
  • Entered now! 


    I have quite a lot of tattoos so you won't be able to miss me! 

    Better start putting some miles in although I did 10 today so not far off, problem with gosport is that it's so flat!

    I will be wearing pink shirt with Jindalee on the back.

    Yes Gosport is pretty flat and I got a PB there last year imageI will do a long run on Sunday. Have been a bit lazy since my Marathon 2 weeks ago but will start again now as I have Bristol and NF HM coming up image
  • What was your time last year?

    planning to do my first marathon in December, portsmouth nice and flat!

  • JindaleeJindalee ✭✭✭
    my time last year (New Forest) was 1.55 was so happy to be under 2h for my first HM
  • JindaleeJindalee ✭✭✭
    Fingers crossed the weather for your Marathon will be ok. I hate running for hours in the pouring rain.
  • That's a good time, my best is 2:14, will get under 2 eventually! 

    Yes I hope the weather will be kind then, although I did the great south run in 2008 in rain and it was horrendous!

  • JindaleeJindalee ✭✭✭
    Sure you will get under 2h image NF had horrendous weather last year and being as unprepared as I was I caught a horrible cold and was sick for a week afterwards. Its not a good sign it you are freezing cold whilst runningimage

    So hopefully we will have better weather this year!
