Planning my events for this year!

Two running events for me shortly, the Porchester 10k on Sun 21 May & Hayling Billy 5 mile on Weds 14 June. This should set me up for my first half in Sept the Meon Valley Express & of course the GSR in Oct. This should keep me out of mischief for a while! Although I might be able to sneak another one in, you just never know! 😉

That all sounds very exciting Frank and is good news for the 'trophy room', I think! Great to see you taking on your first half too - I am sure you will be fab! I did the Bath Half last month and it was a very special day🙂 and I plan to do another one in November, all being well. GSR in October too - snap!😀

Great stuff doing the Bath half Sandra, you're really flying! Maybe we'll bump into each other at the GSR. 😎

Have also signed up to the GSR. Am gradually increasing distance and managed 7.5k without stopping on my last run. Seems a long stretch to 10 miles!

You will certainly enjoy the run it's fantastic, this is my third year and again looking forward to it. You have plenty of time to train for it, use the free GSR training plan on their website, I find it very useful. If you have to have a couple of walk breaks that doesn't matter, many people do. The crowd encourages you around and the time will pass quicker than you think. Well done for signing up, you won't regret it. 😎

I am not worried how long it takes but the crowd might have dispersed by the time I am finishing!

Plus as a local I am very familiar with most of the route (and the prevailing south westerly)

I'm sure you'll be fine, the crowds seem to be there forever!

Great calendar you have there. I got up Yesterday to enter my first event for ages. At 9.30 they released the first London Landmarks HM. (March 2018) I got caught up on a phone call and by the time 10.00am came all the run for yourself places had all sold out 😫. The charities are asking for £250-300 and I wanted my next charity run to be for the kidney foundation and they are not participating, still really tempted though.

Thanks RFC, I've been contemplating that one as well but I heard they sold out in the first hour. I'm sure you'll be back running an event soon, happy running. 😎

That's a shame. It's mad really how hard it can be to get places on some runs. There's a limit to how often you can ask people to sponsor you.
