Make your event our event! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ…๐Ÿฐ

Hi all!

This is a quick one, although I will pin it for a bit, so maybe more of you will see it.

Would you like to have your upcoming race published on this page so that we can all cheer you along on the day?

I know several are training for races at the moment, and I will ask all of you separately too when I get the chance. But please do comment on this post or PM me about it, and I will add your event to our Events calendar in the Marathon Running and Race Support sidebar.

Just tell me the name of your event (or events), and its website if there is one, and I will list it up!

Cheers,

Abix

It's awesome. There's a marathon, too. And a 10k, and a walk, and children's races. There are food stands all along the route that serve up wine, local specialities and fuel for runners. There's music, lots of people in fancy dress and spectacular views. This will be my second time.

It's a newer event and has been really well organized and attended. The guys do a great job. I'm hoping to feel prepared enough to try the 20k next year which really gets into the back country. The 10k with its 2 steep hills will be tough enough for this year. I'll be focussing on hill repeats in training this summer, in hopes of running a good portion of the hills - well maybe not the first one. It is crazy steep and it's hard enough hiking up it, lay alone running up it ๐Ÿ˜….

Hi roseabi. Saturday 17th March is the start of my Duathlon season. Clumber park duathlon is an age related qualification for being chosen to represent my country in 2019.. as usual I am the oldest (and possibly the madest) competitor. It consists of s 5km run on tarmac followed by 20km bike ride on tarmac and finishes off with a further 2.5km run. I take part in the " sprint " event the " standard "event is double the distance.Top British athletes competing for a limited number of places .......and me๐Ÿšผ๐Ÿšผ
