Help! Ive gone and done it, scary stuff. I have run this distance twice myself lately but on my own with my Garmin watch. Totally different I think with loads of other runners, I’ve got real butterflies already and it’s not until September 15th. Any suggestions to help would be appreciated, thanks.

Well done! It'll be loads of fun. pinkaardvark's suggestion is a good one. I'd add: Imagine yourself running across the finish line and how proud you'll feel - those butterflies are also caused by excitement!! On the day of the race (and the parkrun if you do it) don't worry about the crowds; at the starting line put yourself towards the back of the runners where you won't feel overwhelmed. Take in the atmosphere, start off at a very relaxed pace, and enjoy the experience 😊
