    Witton Park if you don't mind - don't get too familiar

    1,000 limit, but with the new permit regulations the numbers can go higher (allegedly).

    I don't think we are at 1,000 yet. The numbers are being allocated online from 1,000 down, and for postal entries from 1 upwards, that's why they are converging at around 600 at the moment.
    A few slots are always kept for elite runners - we tend to get one or two along at the last minute!

    Heck, was 1999 when I last did this one. Not injury free or fit enough for a road race just yet. It's a nice course and a well organised event, don't let the 1st flat mile get the better of you. Good look everyone.

    I agree Ady about that 1st mile. I'm just under 39min at best, so 6:15 per mile is about where I should be.
    5:50 is usually where I have been - so a good tip is to try to hold a little back on the 1st mile - at least if you are just a regular runner out for a decent time.

    You will get sucked in to it though. Watch for our Chairman at the mile point giving you your splits.

    I've entered but I'm not fit at all. Will probably do the Hot Toddy instead now I'm no longer on for a fast time. Its closer for me, there's hills in it and it's an arbitrary distance so I won't feel so unfit!

    Just kicked kids out of bed - eldest racing along with me and the wife. Youngest a runner for the timekeepers.
    Hopefully a couple of paracetamol will get me round.

    Great race. Pity the 5 a side and 6 Pints yesterday came back to haunt me. At least it set a benchmark for the coming year.
    30 years and still here.
