Knowle 5 Mile Fun Run

Hello all West Midlanders....

Just wondering if any of you are mad enough to be joining in the annual Knowle 5 Mile Fun Run this Sunday?
Start/Finish is at Arden School, the main roads are closed for the day, and it is all in aid of charity.

I shall be running (staggering) my way around the course for the first time this year.

Looking for a sub 40 min time, but need to pace myself early otherwise there will be nothing left in reserve for the last few miles.

Good luck to those who are joining us.

I was going to do this as its about a mile from where I work.
But unfortunatly I've managed to score some tickets to Twickenham for the Rugby 7's. So I will be dressing up for that instead.

Hope you manage to crack your 40min time though. Some good pace it you can hit it. Hoping the weather will be with you. Looks a great event!
A few from work will also be doing it!

Cheers Scott.

I'm doing 38min mark at the moment, but, have never run in a group/race before. So not too sure how the pace will be affected by that.
Fingers crossed.....

It'll make you set off quicker so try to keep an eye on your pace or the last mile and a half might be a nightmare. Good luck though and make sure you enjoy it!

Enjoy....hmmmm.....we shall see at the end!

Certainly looking forward to it. Has given me something to aim for, making me run instead of having excuses not to.

Thanks for the hint, will certainly watch the pace early on.
