Here are some elephants doing a bit of a trail run to introduce our latest event post!

Have your upcoming race published in our Events list so that we can all cheer you along on the day and wave our fancy pom poms! Let us know whatever it is, a 5k, 10k, HM, marathon, ultramarathon... You don't have to be a pachyderm to qualify, or be doing a trail. All events welcome!

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.

Sqkr, and roseabi

I've just entered the Eastbourne Junior Twilight Adult/Child Relay on 1st August with my son.

It's run by the ladies who organise Eastbourne junior parkrun as some weeks have to be cancelled during the summer due to other events. They like to keep the kids running so they organise mid week events with chip timings, finish arches, clocks etc.

It's 1 mile each so I'd better get on with my speedwork πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Hi Sqkr, got another one for you - Emmer Green 10k, on 22nd Sept. This is organised by a local school, very close to where I live. It's a tiny one, last year there were only 150 runners, and I really enjoyed the informal atmosphere. So am doing it again - this year it will also be a training run for the Cardiff HM.

So in total that'll be 8 races this year - think I've got the bug ;)

Hi Sqkr hi all!!! After a few weeks of low mileage due to work (I know... it's incredible how life goes on without you when you train for a marathon!!!) I decided to come back seriously to try and beat my PB on the HM. To do that I entered 2 races:

laganside10k.com/

Belfast city half marathon (Belfast, on the 22nd of September 2019)

Then my running club wants to participate to a track and field trophy in Northern Ireland. I will do something this Sunday the 23rd June and something on Sunday the 6th of July

it will be probably long jump, discus and shot (maybe Javelin on the 6th...). I may run 3,000, but I am not sure...

SaskAlliecat

Ooooh, that looks fun! Do it! You know you want to 😈

I do I do. But what if I cause a pile up on the single track parts ?

SaskAlliecat
SaskAlliecatHalf Marathon in reply to paulanoo

You won't but if you do, the traffic will part and it will be ok. Last year someone bent down right at the beginning of the race as we were going through the narrow single track, we all parted around him, it was fine. If you trip, you pick yourself up, brush yourself off, have a little giggle and carry on. Traffic jams, tripping are all part of it. When I ran the trail race that was away last year, as we ran into the first forested area, I smacked my head on a low lying tree branch - I'm not used to to trees where I run normally πŸ˜‚. I grabbed my hat that was knocked off my head, my face got redder than it should've in the first km, and I carried on, ooops, giggling away. It'll all be ok. You just have to go with the flow and take what the trail gives you. Place yourself in the pack near where you should be based on other year's times and how fast you think you'll run it. If you are stuck behind someone on a single track, once you find a spot you can pass, just call out passing on the left (or right) and carry on. If you hear someone behind you that wants to pass, move over a bit if you safely can. But don't fret it. There are wider spots coming up that are perfect for passing (and getting passed), just enjoy the scenery, watch your footing and have fun πŸ™‚.

Ouch! That is great advice thanks. I think I will run the track myself before the race to give me an idea of how long I'll take. I'll stay near the back but not at the very back. There will be some very good ultra runners and maybe some more like myself .

The coach has talked me into squeezing another half in before the Leicester marathon, so I'm doing Stanwick Lakes Half on 15th September:

She's also threatening to drag me round Abingdon marathon next year, but we're still, umm, negotiating that one.

Hi

Well, I've signed up for a 10k and an HM, so why not add a full marathon as well?... Don't answer that!

Anyhow, it's the Thames Meander Marathon on 2nd November:
