Hi there, im doing my first 10k on the 24th june and wanted to find out if anyone else is taking part in the horndon on the hill feast and farye.
I dont know anyone else doing it so it would be graet to hear from anyone, also what sort of time you are hoping to get. I know the course is quite hard (hills) but im still hoping to get as close to 45mins as i can hayley

Dave,

If you wear your RF top you might get to meet one or two forumites such as hayley.

Hayley,

Even if Dave isn't wearing his RF top you'll be able to spot him easily enough......look out for the man with an empty ale glass in one hand and a full one in his other!

I`ve yet to meet any forumites at any race,so I look forward to this one.

There is a few of us running and it wont be a massive field,so this should be a good opportunity to say hello.

Steve i think thats a good idea. I dont mind visiting the pub more often either and letting you know what iv tried.

Aren't we all....ask SE!!

SWMBO tried to ride her bike home once after having a coke or several and couldn't pedal or balance herself so ended up falling off and into a ditch.

I got lost once trying to find my way home drunk, to then realise i had been walking in a circle around the block for over an hour.........
I also cant be trusted when im out on the town, under the influence of alcohol doesnt do me any favors sometimes.
