[quote="ida"]... 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 ;)


Ida, which Icebugs do you recommend? :) I know at least a few of their products aren't vegan, but I've been very happy with the casual Banff boot and looking for a change from the Montrail shoes I usually wear...

[quote]10/20 miles 19th Feb


Right, after the discussions at the bristol vegan fayre, i think this may be the a great meetup for the following reasons:

It means those that want a longer run (20 miles) can do it, and those who are not quite at that level yet (like me!) can do the 10 miler.

It will offer a good training step for april, when there are a couple of runners in London, and the potential to do a half marathon too.

A half marathon is too much for little me in february!

Yep, that works well for me too, I reckon I will have a bash at the 20 :twisted:

So, who else wants to play?

10mile = 16k
half marathon = 21.1k

is not a lot more

but 10m is more or less the limit for me at this moment.

I would like to do 1/2 marathons again in a couple off years.. but first i would like to try to get faster times at my 1500mtr 3/5/10k..

the longer work is good for endurance, but bad for the speed.

but a 10mile in feb would not be to bad i guess. .. that way i can break the time i have.. because i did it once under pretty bad conditions.. in a bad startgroup and with 27'C on a road with lots off diference in levels and lots off turning.. so pretty bad.. the only good thing at this race is that there are lots off people.. more than at the amsterdam marathon.. so good support..

I think this course is quite fast so you should easily break your record. It is a popular race though and there are only 1500 spaces so we will need to enter soon. I will see if I can find an entry form.....

The price is £13 for the 10 and £15 for the 20.

[quote="runner"]dowe start in diferent time groups?


I don't think so. There may be signs suggesting where you should line up according to your speed, but I don't think there will be separate start pens like there were in Amsterdam. There will only be 1500 people there at most though so it shouldn't be a huge problem.

Apparently entry forms will be available in a couple of weeks....

What happend in amsterdam was stupit that people give afast time get a place in the front and run it in an other life...

it's ok not to have a box.. the only thing is that we migth need to go in earlier..

is tarz also down for this run?

and are there other people who want to do this run? and or support?

if there will be lots off people with vegan vests that would be a nice promotion!!

what time should i get? 1:04?

C'est possible. Only the 10 miler though. I collapsed ( I've still got the scars on my fingers from where I fell ) during the first and only time I tried a 20 miler back in 2002. I foolishly hadn't trained for it properly - thought my basic running fitness would see me round. I went off too fast, the weather was truly atrocious ( very cold and windy ) and got very giddy and light headed. I made it to about 16-17 miles then I stumbled. A car had to take me back to the start. :roll:

Moral of the story - a 20 miler is very hard so train properly for it SW!!

Yeah I reckon under 1:04 is a good target for you Emile.

I'm definitely not taking the 20 lightly Tarz, I've done 14-15M quite often in training but I suspect the extra 5 makes a big difference :shock: I will have to try and build up to it over the next few months. (Although I believe they let you bail out after the first lap if you're really struggling :wink: )
