Hi all! Have your upcoming race published on the calendar page so that we can all cheer you along on the day.... be it a 5k, 10k, HM, marathon, ultra or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro let’s celebrate it!!

A new post as the old one is getting tatty ;)

I chose this pic as I just kinda like it- lets all be strong like Wonderwoman and nail our goals :)

Just tell me the name of your event (or events), the date of the event and its website if there is one, and I will add it on,

Happy Panthering

Don’t know if it’s too soon to add, but I will be running the 10k charity race for British Heart Foundation at Blenheim on Sunday 30th September. I don’t think I will be dressing like Wonder Woman though. Erm, it probably is too soon to add, isnt it? Not that I’m excited or anything or that it’s my first race ...

Awe it's a lovely place to run Flick, just try not to be influenced by the pace of others. That was what I found hard during my first run. You will be great. You run Headington hill! 🙀🏃‍♀️ xx

I found park run daunting ... I haven't run Headington hill past Brookes yet, but i've done Morrell avenue and then up to Headington past the Churchill. I think it goes on longer but isn't as steep. I'm more scared of things like needing the loo at the start, losing my way, coming last, not making it round because i couldn't sleep the night before. I'm not really cut out for public running, but I'm doing it ;) My daughter will be running it too, but she's faster than me so we won't go round together xx

Having dithered for about a month now, I've just signed up for the Great South Run on 21st Oct. Managed 11k today - my longest run to date - so hoping I can get to the 10 miles in time, uninjured! Felt great this morning until it dawned on me that I need to add a whole other 5K to today's distance :D :D :D Eek!

I've found that I've been co-erced by a friend into registering for the Windsor Autumn Half Marathon at Dorney Lake on the 20th October. I'm not sure if I'm mad, but have a training programme to get my distance back up to where it was before all the hot weather started. I won't be fast but I hope I will be able to finish it.

Hi! Congratulations for entering your first race, how exciting!!

If you are using the Health Unlocked App I'm afraid the Events list will not be visible to you, but on desktop it can be seen on the right-hand sidebar on the Marathon homepage (or scroll down for it on a mobile browser).

In any case, I will add you to the list and will give you a shout-out nearer the day of your race 😊

Back from holiday and booked two races today😳😀

First up is my little local 10k this Sunday (23rd) - the Emmer Green 10k. They apparently had 300 runners last year.

And then it’s back to South Wales on Nov 10th for the Cardiff MoRun 10k in Bute Park, where once again I’ll be running with my sisters.

All of which is aiming to keep me motivated through the winter, ready for my first HM in March 😀
