  • anyone got a waterproof camera?
  • I am thinking about doing this, I am worried that I will be really little slow as I only started running 6 months ago and I am still a beginner, it would be really good to say I had done it....and I do live about a mile away so in a way I could call it my local race!!!

    Still not convinced will have to ponder a little more....
  • I'd say go for it Tamsy, only started running 7 months ago myself!

    Considering that you live soooo close you really can't miss this one, go on.... it'll be a laugh, albeit a muddy and wet one!!
  • I am half tempted Tara

    What kind of times are people thinking they will do??

    I am an 11 minute miler on flat ground, with hills it will proberly go to 13/14 so say 15 x 8 it will take me around 2hrs then add 15 mins for the swim I do on the way and maybe another 15 for anything else which may happen I will be aiming at 2.5hrs would this be reasonable, will I be last or are my estimations way out???

  • Tamsy - this is definitely NOT a pb type course, and I for one will be running to enjoy it. My slow runs are 11-12 min/miles and if you'd like to do this event I'll run round with you to keep you company (did this with Pixie last year and we had a great laugh)
  • As long as the pub is open when I finish then I couldn't care less what time I get.
  • There you go Tamsy, problem sorted!

    I'm not going for a pb either, what's the point there's going to be sooo many obstacles in the way!

    personally I'm just hoping to complete the damn thing in one piece and with minimal tears shed along the way!
  • lol I like your thinking, it's just a PB with an extra 'u'!
  • And we won't see the tears with all the water and mud.
  • how are your bike...er, injuries Gavo?
  • haha yeah you'll just hear me wailing: "why did I agree to this...!!!"
  • Mostly OK now Dutchie, ta. I'll try not to get hit by any cars just before this. How stupid of me.
  • Ok ok I'm in!!! But as long as we go for a well earn pint at the end!!! (Is there any where to shower??) Mind you I will be able to pop home!

  • Tamsy - you are being rather hopeful asking about showers..... standard practice at this one is just to strip naked in the car park!
  • haha shouldn't have said that Tamsy, gonna all pile round to yours for showers if there aren't any at the venue!
  • Tamsy - can you recommend a decent pub for afterwards then?
  • Unfortunatly I don't have a shower, but I do have a hose in the garden!!!!!

    I am looking forward to it now!! I may pop over the common and do a bit of training on some of those hills as I am used to training on flat surfaces!!!

    Is there a plan to go for a pub lunch after??? I could recommend somewhere which is close by?

  • Peeps would *love* to go to a pub afterwards, but as no-one seems to know the squaddie-riddled area well enough, we don't know where to go!!
  • I know somewhere.....
  • and it's not in Aldershot and proberly closer then 1-2 miles from the race!!!
  • excellent!!!


    party time!
  • Fraggle, I have to say I loved the glasses you wore for the GSR!!

    The pub's called the Forresters and is only a mile away, It does nice food and on Sunday's will be doing roasts!!!

    It has plently of room inside for a large group (if many decide to go!)



  • Sounds nice Tamsy - how large a group do you think they can cope with? I think there will be a fair few!
  • oh I am not sure I reakon that maybe 30-40 people sitting, it maybe an idea if I call them and organise it, as I can't imagine them being too pleased with a load of "dirty" runners just turning up and overtaking the place!!

  • lol us dirty runners can sink a few pints though, may be very good for business if they're runner friendly!
  • I'm sure they are runner friendly as long as they know we are coming!!!!

    If you like nearer the time I can try and get a rough number of those who wish to partake in our post race drinks/food etc and let them know.

    If anyone else has a better idea please let us know..don't want to look like I am taking over!! (I just like to be organised..especially as there's only 6 weeks and 4 days to go!!!!!! ;-)
  • ooooh party party party!!
  • Yipppeeee!

    Tamsy - thanks for offering to organise it :-)

  • My two team mates only agreed to run if i bought them a pint, and they only agreed a couple of weeks ago, i told 'em 2 months would be enough time to train. Ha! guess that means we'll be last then, save some beer and food for us.
