Trying my 2nd 10 miler tomorrow,Queensgate Fun Run , tempted by the fact they have permission to run through the grounds of Osbourne house, Queen Victoria's IOW residence owned by English Heritage. Only been there a couple of times, and have booked extra day off work(actually off til the 12th Oct now!) its more of a fun run rather than competitive race. Haven't run that end of the Island before(only once i Wootton) , hope its not TOO hilly(think some of it is!)
Also the people organising it say..........
"Every finisher gets a medal, AND THERE IS CAKE, so please stay for some refreshments and cheer everyone home :)"
Only done that distance once at the end of July, plus 2x 9 milers(on my own) before that, but sounds like it a relaxed one thats a good fundraiser for the school.....
Heres the route(its actually 10.4 miles! eek!
will report back!
ps if anyone gets the parkrun weekly email, my friends husband Rob is "parkrunner of the week!"
