I've only done one ten miler before and that was over a very hilly off road course. I got 63 mins for that, but that was a slow course.

I've checked the race time predictor charts and my 10K and half-marathon times should give me a time of 58.30-59.00. Whether or not I do is another matter.... I'm looking forward to racing again, my last race was March 2004....... :roll:

Last year's results if anyone was wondering what kind of place their expected time would produce:

If it is a similiar field to last year, and I run well, I could hopefully finish in the top ten. :wink:

Keep training and I am sure you will. :D

I ran my first 10K when I was 16 in 44mins, now I can do 35mins. I did my first half marathon in 1999 in 87mins ( admittedly I hadn't trained for it, and very foolishly ran in brand new trainers which made my ankles bleed :shock: ), now i can do 78mins, and I hope to lower that still further next month.

It's all about practice basically. :wink:

Living in London - quite hard to get to races. No real local races as such, and other races in London can take a long time to get to.

I tell a lie, I also raced in May 2004, when I did a 10K in the delightful ( not ) surrounds of Hornsey and Alexandra Palace in north london.

I should make more of an effort really, because all my training means I usually place quite well. I want my Vegan Runners vest to get seen during races as well, so I better start entering a few more really.......

I believe that it's an undulating ( easy ) course, that will be conduceive to fast times. The weather will play a part - in previous years it has been cold, not sure what it will be like on Sunday though........

Read some of these messages from previous years, to get an idea for the race. Not sure if you have to be a member to view or not: http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/for ... 21&v=1&sp=

http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/for ... =1&V=1&SP=

It sounds a very well marshalled event too.

I don't know any of these people. Huw Llob who set a course record in the 20mile race is quite a famous British runner.
