⭐ EDIT: Results post is live!!!! healthunlocked.com/marathon...

Hi all you amazing runners!!

★ ★ ★

The HU spring 2021 event is now OPEN for entry

Choose your distance - Half Marathon or 10k

Main event Sunday 28th March, 9.30am

(or as close as suits you - but do watch out for the clock change!)

★ ★ ★

Setting off at 9.30am on Sunday 28th March we will have an added boost, knowing we are all on the virtual HU start line together - running on our own, but definitely not alone. However, we realise the date/time might not work for everyone, so in order to give greater flexibility we will accept runs at any time on Sunday March 28th or at any point during the following week of Mon 29th March - Sat 3rd April (note this is a change of date from the original announcement - well all the big events have changed their dates, why not us too?)

---

This event is entirely free to enter. International entries welcomed (in accordance with local COVID guidelines). There are no t-shirts, medals, socks, aid stations or toilet queues! No training plans or routes will be supplied! Instead this will be a unique HU experience, run your way 😍

★ We will compile an event playlist based on your suggestions. Look out roseabi’s poll and submit your response so we can see what apps you use to listen to music healthunlocked.com/marathon... If you haven’t submitted your suggestions for the playlist, it’s not too late! Let us know in the comments below ğŸŽ¶

★ We will put together a ‘run experience’ using RunGo. Admittedly this will be somewhat quirky and you can let us know if it adds or detracts from your experience after the event (please be kind!). It’s not too late to 'feature' in this - let me have your motivational/funny message and we can include it in our audiotrack, the more the better (just send me a message via chat to keep it a surprise) 😊😊😊

★ We will produce a guide for using RunGo and the playlist in advance of the event. Hopefully there will be an opportunity to try RunGo out in advance and there will be no need to set up an account if you don’t already have one. All you will need is a phone.

★ We will put up a post for you to submit your finish times after the main event on 28th March, which will remain open until 3rd April. No proof required.

★ Race report posts will be most welcome, as always.

★ Finally, we will of course have a winner for each distance. The winner will be the person who completes their run in the time closest to our randomly generated time (after the event closes). There is absolutely no requirement to run fast to win this event! 🐌🏆

---

★ ★ ★ We hope you’re eager to join us ★ ★ ★

Register your entry NOW - simply comment below as to which distance you have chosen to run (transfers will be allowed right up until you start, there will be no fee to transfer - if you need to change distance between registering and the actual event just send me a message via chat or comment on your original entry reply here and we will transfer you. At present there is no option to defer) (It wouldn’t be a proper event without some T&C’s!!!)

---

Here's to a great week everyone, whether you're running, cross-training or resting - have fun!!!

Hello linda9389 and roseabi, please count me in for the HM. Thanks for all the organising, really appreciate it 😀👍👋

Fab! You get bib number 001 !!! Hmm, I should've added that to the post ... bibs not supplied! Ah well. You're still number 1 😀

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon in reply to linda9389

Thrilled to be number one for the first and undoubtedly last time linda9389! Could you also add me to the 10k start list please? Given the change of dates it's possible that I'll do both in a week.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Cmoi

Another superstar!!! Will do! As I said below, there will be a significant overlap in the RunGo experience so you may only want to use that for one or the other!

Cmoi profile image
CmoiMetric Marathon in reply to linda9389

Not sure I qualify as a superstar, nutter more like! I'd really like to get another HM under my belt so that will be priority for Sunday 28th. If that works out, I'll have a go at the 10k later in the week.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Cmoi

It's a fine line ... 😀

I was going to look for a number three in my stash of running bibs 😁 is that just me? ☺️

Maybe we should put roseabi s design skills to the test and ask her to design us a printable bib (then hope it doesn't rain) 😄

linda9389Administrator in reply to Joster

Brilliant. Adding you to the start list now.

How exciting! Unfortunately even the 10k is a bit too early for me so I'll have to watch from the sidelines and cheer everyone on instead 🤸‍♀️🥳🥳Good luck, runners! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🍀

linda9389Administrator in reply to Beatlesforever

We definitely don't want you to push too hard and are very, very grateful for the cheers! Thank you. Hopefully getting back to 10k won't be too far off for you 😊

Thank you! I'm aiming for mid-April all being wellğŸ¤ž

Hi linda, i would like to do 10k please, if the hip behaves itself!!! 🤣

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Peter44

Brilliant. Adding you to the start list. Go easy on the hip though. I'm finding concentrating hard on my running posture is helping with mine - standing tall, using my core muscles; and of course strength work will always help the glutes and quads take pressure off the hip 😊

Hi Linda, I think I'm ready to attempt the longer distances again ... please add me to the 10k list.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to RunSkippyRun

Excellent news! Adding you to the start list.

Sign me up please. I'll definitely do the 10k on the 28th, but I should also be able to do a HM on the 3rd. That'll keep me on track for by 2021 running challenge. 😃

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to runningdad

I'm loving this!!! I get to add you to both start lists ... although I think it's likely there will be a significant overlap in the two audio tracks 🤔 You may only want to use that for one or other of the runs rather than both!

10k for me please!

That's you on the startlist - bib number 305!

You can always change your mind if the legs are twitching by then 😀, but I'll add you to the 10k start list!

Go on then, I will try for a 10 km, on Wednesday 7th April

Hmmm.... any chance you fancy trying between 28th March and 3rd April?

Please add me for the 10km. I've done four runs at that distance or longer, so my legs are used to it now.

PS. Do I have to carry palms?

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to nowster

Haha! You carry what you like ... but that would make for quite the fancy dress 😂. I'll add you to the list!

misswobble profile image
misswobbleMarathon

I’ve had to bin off my last two runs to return to base with dodgy guts 🙈☺️

Plus I’ve got a painful bit under my foot as if I’ve landed heavily on a stone, which I probably have. Not a great start to the challenge. I did lose weight though 😁

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

Oh no! I bruised my heel at one point last year. It was incredibly painful to walk on (fine for running though as it turns out I barely touch the ground with my heels when I run) but was gone in two weeks. I still have no idea how I did it 🤷‍♀️. Hope yours heals fast

misswobble profile image
misswobbleMarathon in reply to linda9389

It’s a crock innit Cos you can’t really do anything about it. It’s under my little toe, and the one next to it 😤

I dug out the more cushioned Saucony’s for yesterday’s run.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

That's gonna interfere far more than my heel did. Ouch!

I only have one suggested tune, which I believe everyone should run to, and that’s Kenny Loggins’ “FOOTLOOSE”. It’s game on when this pops up. I whirl my virtual lasso above my head ğŸ˜ğŸŽ¶ğŸŽµğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸ğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸ğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸ğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸ğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸ğŸƒâ€â™€ï¸

KalessinHalf Marathon

I'd like to try for the HM please. It will be three weeks after my first one (Sunday 7th) and my hips and thighs are getting back to normal, but we'll see. It's highly likely I will be on here at 8.30am on the 28th saying "no no no - I meant 10k!!"

Can I put a bid in for a special prize for the slowest finisher? 🐢🐌

News flash, it won’t necessarily be you @Kalessin! I’m a contender for sure! 😅

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Kalessin

I have put you on the HM start list. I ran my second HM race three weeks after my first ever. All was good. I then ran my third (again a race) a few weeks later and everything went pear shaped so all I would say is listen to your body - if all feels well then go for it, but if not the 10k is there!!!

cheekychipmunks profile image

Wayhay!!! I’m in for the HM on the 28th please linda9389! I’ll be going out before 9:30 otherwise I’ll be forever avoiding dog walkers! 🐕🐾🐕🐾🐕

I am doing a half marathon but it is planned for the 23rd March which was ok as per previous announcement. The date is booked because my running buddy is on holiday during the week from the 25th.

I also usually run on Saturdays but can try to do a 10k on the Sunday 28th instead of running Saturday 27th!

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Fran6500

Ahh, I'm so sorry! I'm not sure I will have the RunGo thing ready for 23rd in HM format, but as we've changed the date I am more than happy to accept your time. For now, I'll add you to the start list for the 10k, and you can submit an 'extraordinary' time for the HM too 😍

Hi Linda What a fantastic exclusive event well done all for organising it.

Adaptability - the first skill of a Half Marathoner! You'll get there with a bit of perseverance 😊 I'll add you to the 10k start list and we'll see you on the start line - there's nothing to say you can't include a warmup and cool down walk, or a walk to take on fuel or a walk to take photos, or a walk of any kind come to that!!!

Hi Linda

Count me in for the HM and 10k - sorry not able to do the Sunday but will do both in the following week - understand plans change, I had though planned Friday 26th for the HM, still on the plus side can have an extra week for stamina training 🏃🏻‍♀️👍👏

Hi Linda and RoseabiI love the idea of a virtual HU event. Can you put me down for the half marathon please? I havent stuck to my training plan! However this virtual race and the COGH has really helped keep me focused on getting out and running. So thank you. I'm hoping to finish LEJOG 4 on the same day too.

I'd love to listen the play list but as most of my routes are on country lanes with little or no pavement I think it might be a bit risky.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Cantstopmenow

Fantastic! See you at the start line. Good to hear that these challenges are motivational- I always need to be working towards something! Safety definitely needs to be top priority, you need all your senses on country lanes for sure.

Thank you for organising all this, you have clearly put a lot of thought in it 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ It means a lot, especially since the Sheffield HM I have been training for was postponed from March 28th to the autumn 😭 Putting another event in my calendar has kept me motivated 😁 I am really looking forward to it!

Please can I be entered for the 10km. I’m slowly building back up my distance, and if it wasn’t for this pesky ankle, I’d definitely be up for a second HM.

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to BrianUK

Sorry you're not going to be doing the HM with us, but relieved too - I'd feel very guilty if anything went wrong. We've got our eyes on you - on the start list yes, but not on the start line unless the ankle is ready please! I think I need to add a disclaimer to our T&C's - 'remember, running when injured is inadvisable and would be entirely at your own risk'. A lot of healing can take place in two weeks though, good luck 👍

Lol, I did notice it didn't suit everyone...thumbs up from me at least, I needed the extra time which I assume is what made you change. I remember when you 1st put the dates up, there weren't many takers. Looks like plenty now though, for both distances 👍😊

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Run46

I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't factored in that I would have to have the 'app' ready for the earlier date and having been really busy for the last three weeks I hadn't done anything on it! Oops! If someone needs to run the week before that's still OK, but unfortunately things won't be quite ready ... There's definitely enough of us for a crowd on the start line 😊

Hi. Please put me down for the 10k on the Sunday and the HM the following Friday (2nd April). Can I have the same bib number for both please? I wouldn't want to mix them up and run with the wrong one.

Chwwer for organising this!

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to SkiMonday

Fantastic, that's true dedication!Much as I like to oblige (not to mention recycle) wherever possible, I'm afraid the answer to your question is no, sorry but I cannot!!! That would mess with the system🤷‍♀️🙈! However, because you've asked ... here's what I'll do .... I've added you to the 10k start list which gives you bib number 336 and I will give you bib number 036 for the Half. I now have a big gap in the HM start list, but it's worth it because I'm keen to help (though it probably doesn't help at all 😂). Should you inadvertently run with the incorrect bib, I see nothing in the T&Cs which would penalise you, so please don't lose any sleep over it😊 .

See you at the startline - hopefully you'll be the one with something or other 36 on his bib 😅

SkiMonday profile image

If you spot someone with bib number 336036, that's likely to be me 😊. Sorry for messing up the start list (I seem to have a talent for not quite fitting in).

Hi Linda, can you sign me up for the half? Purely by accident it is the day my current HM plan ends. My birthday is two days earlier so the wine fog should just about have cleared by then.

Calfs are no excuse mind, you can run later in the day or later in the week if needs be, but of course it would be great if you can set out at 9:30 along with lots more of us. Nervous is good - that turns into 'race magic' on the day and helps you from the moment you start running. Bib number 027 is now all yours!

Can I join for 10k please? It might have to be last knockings i.e. Easter weekend as I'm not really 10k ready but it might just about be doable in 3 weeks. Will we be able to use RunGo if we run outside of the official time/date?

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Birdlady64

Lovely! Hopefully you will be ready, but definitely don't push it just for this. Once we've set up RunGo it will be there indefinitely I think, so the answer is yes to that question 😊 By then though everyone may have said how awful it is and you'll be happy to have dodged a bullet 😍 I'll add you to the start list now and we'll keep our fingers crossed for you, but being sensible is the priority 👍

Birdlady64 profile image
Birdlady64 in reply to linda9389

Ha ha! Yes - I will wait to see what everyone else says.Of course If I don't feel ready then I won't push it. A couple of 4/5km runs plus a longer run of 7k this week, 8k next week and then maybe a 10k on the Easter weekend might do it. (Almost within the 10% rule)

Hi Linda. Can I sign up for the 10k distance please? Many thanks for organising - should be fun!

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

That's not quite how it should be! Am I right thinking you are running with the Apple version? The first things I would check are the settings. After that you need to be sure that you definitely chose the VIRTUAL OUTDOOR mode to run.

I’ll have another go 🙂

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

Have a look at the settings in the guide again ... when I was running - following the virtual route - the map displayed on my screen was a real map of where I was, with a red line for where I'd run and a blue dot for where I was. That's android and apple may be different, but it may give you an idea if Rungo is picking up your location at least.

misswobble profile image
misswobbleMarathon in reply to linda9389

Yes, I’d got a map up of my manor 🙂

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

and did it have a red line and blue dot showing (accurately) where you were?

This was my android screenshot. Red line was where I had been, blue dot was where I was
linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

and when I finished this was the final screen (it may be different on Android, but I imagine it will be similar). DId you get any details? or just zero? I'm trying to work out whether it is just a sound issue or whether it was more fundamental given you say it thought your pace was zero!

This confirmed the time and distance; also see the submit virtual race at the bottom
misswobble profile image
misswobbleMarathon in reply to linda9389

No distance or anything recorded in the log book I wonder if I’d missed checking a box

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to misswobble

Perhaps ... my son's didn't record to his logbook either ... but we were just sat on the sofa so zero distance was correct in that case. The settings in the app were totally different for Apple and I don't have access right now. Try it tomorrow. Let me know how it goes. If still no success I will try my daughter's iPhone or maybe my OH will let me have his work phone for a short while (what's that, did you see that flying pig too?)

Woo hoo - just back from a 9k in prep for the 28th 10k race, and trialled the Rungo app (all worked fine) and the play list (some great pieces in there and some I would definitely never choose to listen to, but I'm glad to know we'll all be 'riding on a donkey' together next Sunday 🤣 Will there be a shared virtual route for the day ? Or should we just set run and go ? Anyway - look forward to it. See you there !

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Juliet202

Excellent! Did you try the virtual 1k route? There will be a virtual route for the 10k and another for the HM. Both will virtually follow a real race route with snippets from the admin team and people who submitted soundbites. There will be something to distract you and maybe make you smile, every 0.5 to 1 kilometre. Hopefully it will help us all feel we're running 'together'

Juliet202 profile image
Juliet20210 Miles in reply to linda9389

Yes I tried the 1km route - found the voice curiously lacking in emotion ‘boom boom’ 🤣 look forward to next Sunday !!

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Juliet202

I know!!! There's nothing we can do about that unfortunately. I'm hoping the whole robot voice thing will add to the amusement factor 🙃 I've listened to it so much now I'm starting to think it's not so bad after all ... but that's because I long since gave up expecting to hear the 'cheer' factor from Miss Robot Voice (and Mr Robot Voice on OH's iPhone was even worse!!!).

Ok, so this is me NOT signing up to the 10k 🤣🤣 but nevertheless committing to running my planned 9k using the RunGo 10k route and the Spotify list!

As I’m gearing for the 10k Runderwear run just the week after 😳, I thought I can join in here, but with a planned 9k training route.

RunGo is downloaded (and experimented with... great little app!) and Spotify list put in my favourites. So I am all ready to go and will probably join you at 9:30 on Sunday!

Fabulous stuff! Looking great!

Thanks. Will RUNGO work alongside Strava?

linda9389 profile image
linda9389Administrator in reply to Mormor1

I haven't tried it, but it certainly should. I have run it alongside Komoot which is another GPS oriented app. If you normally run with Strava, I suggest you go into the RunGo app settings and turn off pace and distance alerts (but leave everything else on). That way you will get the run commentary but won't get extra alerts. Our commentary will give you all the major distance milestones plus other chat. It is possible that strava alerts will either be 'talked over' or may be stacked up until RunGo has finished 'talking'. In the background though, Strava will be recording all your stats as accurately as normal.If you are unsure, have a trial with the '1k Try Me' route we set up - you don't have to run, you can use it while you're walking somewhere 😊

Jonno34 profile image
Jonno34Half Marathon

Did my 10k this morning as we are confined tomorrow. (Having done my HM a couple of weeks ago) I was going to do one last Thursday but pulled up at 5 as my heart was not in it. Was feeling a bit flat to be honest and after a bit of soul searching I think it was a bit of "HM done, how do I follow that up" syndrome. To be honest, that is a question I will have to work on as to be honest there is no way I would consider a full marathon at this point, the first thing I thought of at the end of the half was "could I do that again?" So, soul searching aside I thought this morning I would take a fresh approach and see if I could better my time. I downloaded Spotify and the Edinburgh 10k route coach thing to give me a fresh playlist and something to think about. Not all the playlist suited but there were some fresh songs which was good, the route coach was shall we say different, it got sounded out sometimes as the transition from music was not the best but it did give a different dimension which is what I needed and getting told I was kicking ass by a dalek was certainly refreshing.

I managed to trim 2 mins and 16seconds off my time coming in at 1:07:06 which I was happy about.

I would like to say a special thanks to all who have supported the group both on here and Strava and a special thanks to the organisers and moderators on this forum which is an amazing place to be when it comes to running.

That's a really excellent PB - congratulations! It's very normal to feel the blues after aiming for something like a HM or FM. Often the best thing to do is to take it easy and find running for fun again. Sometimes I have signed up for a monthly distance challenge just to make sure I get out and run something regularly. Other times I've signed up for another event, but these days I'm better at taking a month or so to just pootle about and enjoy the run for the run itself. You'll find something to suit you, but no pressure!

Hello runners couldn't do today so done my 10km yesterday, haven't done 10km for a while so this was a good excuse to get out there. Enjoy your running today everyone 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

10k done on a lovely sunny morning here. Ran in 1 hour 11 minutes, which is a bit slow for me but I kept the hills in the route and it was hot so I'm happy enough. :) Next stop, virtual half for my postponed San Sebastián run in April and then, hopefully, the real thing in San Seb. and Valencia (both in October). SO looking forward to that... :)
