SqkrHalf Marathon

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 Everest...

Just tell us the name of your event (or events), the date of the event and website if there is one, and we will add it to the list.

Here's a new thread just so it doesn't get too unwieldy--there's an awful lot of running going on, and loads of plans for future events. The picture is just one of an alpaca because look at him flying there! I do enjoy alpacas.

Helsinki City Run on 18th May 2019. There is a HM, marathon and a new "double" (half marathon followed by a marathon 63km). I'm definately signing up as I ran the HM last time, but i've not made up my mind about whether to go for the DOUBLE or not yet though! Two races for the price of one! Might be a good way to start my "ultra" career? hcm.fi/en/content/helsinki-...

Oof a double! Your poor legs. But it sounds like a brilliant way to step up to ultra level! I've put you into the events diary as a length tbc 😊

I actually have signed up for the Brighton & Hove Triathlon, it's ages away - September 15th 2019! I deferred it from this September 😊

But I mainly just wanted to say OMG THAT ALPACA LOOK AT HIS LITTLE FACE!!!! 😍😍😍

Did you enter the Olympic distance?

roseabi

No, just the sprint 😊

benwill
benwillMarathon in reply to roseabi

I might do this one been thinking of trying olympic distance but not sure about that far in the sea, as they have a kids event too.

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to benwill

This year the sea was rough and they ended up having everyone swim just 400 m - it was low tide and people were walking most of the way to the first buoy!! I was glad I'd deferred 😊

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to benwill

I'm not sure I fancy Olympic distance at B&H because 4 laps for the run and 8 for the bike. A bit tedious! It is good because it's closed road, though - and very flat 😊 As for the swim, just take it easy!

benwill
benwillMarathon in reply to roseabi

8 laps and 4 laps i hate laps! sprint it will be :)

Next year is filling up, right the way to the end! Brilliant!

Alpacas bring such joy to the world 😄

I did the super sprint triathalon at Brighton this year. My first triathalon, the swim was terrifying. I almost gave up..! I was almost last in the swim, but 5 people gave up and DNF the swim. The sea was super rough. It was overall an awesome experience though, everyone was dead friendly and the crowd support and volunteers were fab. I was buzzing for ages after finishing. I'd like to do the sprint next year, but I will see based on my rubbish swimming, I may stick with the super sprint as it's a very manageable distance. You will love it x

roseabi
roseabiAdministrator in reply to Snuffy_T

Well done - that sea was nasty! Pretty windy for the run and bike too.

I did it in 2017 (sprint), it is a fabulous event, isn't it!!??

Yes, only one hill about 3 miles in as you head up towards beachy head. But this is swiftly followed by an about turn and run back down the hill.

Am in Fayetville NC, got in late last night and staying at friends house. A bit nervous about the Ft Bragg Ten Mile Race tomorrow. Back has been acting up for a week or so and also feeling a bit battered and throat-achey from a Cold.

On the bright side, I’ve been asked if I will run with a Marine Corp Major no less - she had never entered for this before and is “slow” so, like me, we will let the young hotshots gallop off into the distance (she is only a couple of years younger than me and hasn’t done much running for a good while so we might well be well matched - but probably as slow as I am she might also disappear into the distance after the first few hundred yards 😂)

Anyway - it will be quite an experience one way or the other so all AOK 😋

I love how if you half cover up the pic with your hand the back of the alpaca is pure speed, but the front is blissful serenity. I aspire to get a race photo like that.

According to my version of roseabi s new HM plan, I'm supposed to be running a 10k race on Sunday 17th Feb.

So what's a girl to do but trawl through the 'net and find a suitable race! So Royal Parks Winter 10k - Hyde Park, Feb 17th is now booked, just like the plan says :D :D :D
