Hiya,

I was wondering if anyone is planning to run in a Race for Life this year?

I thinking of running in one of the edinburgh ones, but I'm not sure which. I'm assuming the one at Hopetoun House is flatter than the one around Holyrood, but that's not really an issue since I live on top of a hill, so all my runs have uphills and downhills - no flat bits though :(

I will be entering the Bedford RFL. It was great last year with a lovely route as they managed to get one road shut off and the rest of the route was around the embankment and parks.
So come on you girls sign up as there is bound to be one near you!!!!

hi dawnie.... i supported my wife at coventry R4L last year, although it was at the memorial park. she's not down to do it this year tho'.

i hear mixed reviews about R4L but even i was impressed with the atmosphere.

Cant wait... I'm really looking forward to it, but everyone I know is running at the memorial park not Coombe Abbey, so looks like I will be on my own :(

Dawnie one thing you can guarantee about a R4L is that you will never be alone but surrounded by 100s and 1000s of women. It gets quite emotional reading peoples messages!!

Go for it MM.. I was a non runner until I entered the R4L I can now manage about 4 miles, admittedly not very fast, but I can get round !!

I'm doing my best Ed... would just like it to start getting a bit easier !! lol

But I am really enjoying it, specially when I can get outside for a run, just a shame there is no one local who I can go running with, have to make do with my own company !

I'm doing the race for life in Oldham this year in June, ive wanted to do it for a couple of years and never got round to it. I started training in January and ive found it really addictive. I had a running partner but recently lost her(not in a bad way) so started going it alone and its not so bad, there's no one holding me back now. Funnily enough i bought a R4L t-shirt today so i'm really excited.:d
