Did it a couple of years ago, excellent race and beautiful city. No problem with food either.
The only thing is if we do something like that then we all have to pay for accomodation....

[quote="bronco"]I find the idea of running in january or february quite strange. I mean by then its supposed to be -10 degrees and lots of snow and ice. But I suppose the weather in UK is not as lovely as in sweden :D.


Running in the winter is no problemo in Sweden. If the ice and snow is dry (as in Skellefteå) you can have your regular trainers with a pair of warmer socks, and if the snow and ice is more wet and therefor more slippery (as the case in Uppsala/Stockholm region)you always have the great icebugs you can use... :D ;)

Hmm, I guess you may be right. But it just feels plain wrong ! Winter is the time for skating and floorball :lol:. Plus its allways dark. OK, I have to admit that's lame excuses, I will start winter running then :).

yeah! that's the spirit. Not that it's anything wrong with floorball or ice-skating during the winter, while waiting for the rowingseason to start ;)

New years run probably wouldn't be good for me. Think I would be in sweden around that time.

new year would probably be too soon for me, as I definately need a bit of a break from proper running

we can also do a non runing meet.. but than we could better discuss it in the general meething section.. it might become a veganfitness week discussion than... what should we do ?

we can also have more options.. but how sooner we get a date the cheaper the traveling..

bronco can not make it for new year and lgb is not ready for a new run..

other options are?

small meethings are ok for me as well..

would be nasty when one person is alone in a meethup..
