Just did a google search and this thread comes up first, before the official website :) I thought they were doing this in 2009 but looks like its been pushed to 2010 now! This has been in the pipeline for what feels like forever!!!

Yeah I heard about this from a press release from Liz. I'm not sure if it's the 'perfect' race distance though.

I got offered a charity place for this but the sponsorship commitment is too much for me.

ohhh i got a big leaflet on it ...... the email iswww.kilomathon.com they are still taking entries arent they - just regular one's that you dont have to reach a minimum charity amount for.

i was gonna do it but it clashes with the silverstone half i think

oh i'm such a muppet - i got so excited i didnt read the posts and just put what i knew and you all already know dont you :lol:

just ignore me ...i'm prone to bouts of over excitedness :lol:

Hello!

I am a volunteer fundraiser for a Nottingham based charity called MCAI which is an affiliated charity with the Kilomathon. We are looking for runners who are interested in running the world's first Kilomathon and help to raise money for a charity! If you are interested please get in touch via [email protected]

Thank you and have a good Christmas!

I had a voucher through the post today - £5 off entry to the Kilomathon England - just use code 2010kilo when entering online.

Kilomathon England goes from Nottingham to Derby - No idea about the Scottish one though.

Entered the English one, cant do the Scottish due to work. Its the day before im on a course in Pompey so its quite handy, drive halfway sat, travelodge, race and then finish the drive.

I'm still planning to do this (Scottish one) but haven't booked yet. It's quite expensive though, and quite far to run...

It'll be so near me though, I just have to do it.
