    Re: Round Rotherham 50

    Hopefully it'll be as easy as that on the day. My one race longer than this I did was a 100km which I was on the verge of dropping out at 82k but was persuaded to carry on and actually found the last 5km as easy as any part of the race.

    Well at least it looked warmer than last year

    Make sure you're back by 3pm and you'll only get the heavy rain spell in the morning and not the afternoon too

    8 hours is a decent time going by last years results. Sub 9 will do me given the forecast.

    Was tempted until I found out I'd need a mortgage to get a pair

    Is it just me or does this look an even worse forecast than before?

    Definitely different, rain starts later tonight but there's more of it but it doesn't turn to sleet.

    Re: Round Rotherham 50

    Who's doing this tomorrow?
    Just had a quick scan through the last few pages and I've seen -
    mxhornet
    chris brown
    BritNick
    Socks
    Straggler
    hairier half
    me

    Anyone else? I'm not stopping over the night before, so will try and look out for likely forum loking types Stolly reckoned I looked a bit like my avatar anyway...

    Doc says I shouldn't be running again yet so I'll see how far I can get
