Races / Ramsgate Rotary 10K off?
« Last post by Rick Ryder on May 15, 2015, 12:24:53 AM »
from the Rotary webpage
The Club has cancelled this year’s 10K road run, due to be held on June 7, because of difficulties concerning the technicalities of arranging road closures.
It is however determined to keep the event going and has  decided that it will take place next on June 5 2016.
The man behind the original idea, Simon Wallace, last year’s Rotary Club President said: “Naturally we are very disappointed having to make this decision but in order to ensure the repeat success of the first race last  year we  had no alternative. The safety of the public, as well as  the runners, has to be paramount.”

Congratulations to all Traccies who were running yesterday, what an event. Was staggered at the time Paula Radcliffe did it in, 2:36:55 with very little training in the last couple of months, waving to the crowd all the way. Before Sunday the UK's fastest marathon time for a woman was slower than that. She finished about 7 minutes inside the qualifying time for Rio, what a performance.

I'm sure it started at 8.30 the year i did it.  I know i had to leave home around 6ish which was ridiculous for a 10k.

Andy, yes I have done it a couple of times and it is a good race, but I have a funny feeling it is an hour earlier this year. They probably have to do it because closing the little narrow country lanes around the course and putting in the informal one way system they need has made it more and more difficult to get permission to hold it, hence the increasingly early start.

I did it a couple of years ago and had to leave hone stupidly early.  On the plus side you get back home at a reasonable time and it is a fab race.

Races / Darent Valley 10k
« Last post by Bill Wright on April 15, 2015, 01:04:11 PM »
I read Ian's posting in the news section about the Darent Valley 10k and how there were only 3 TRAC runners entered. I was surprised I hadn't entered that one, so I went to their website. We all put ourselves out quite a bit for our sport and I am not averse to an early start but 08.30 start about an hour's drive away up the county! I "come to" slowly in the morning and I have to factor in a fair bit of time before leaving the house, plus I like to get there about 45 mins before kickoff. I reckoned if I wanted to enter this I would have had to get up before 6am on a Sunday morning, I don't think so. No wonder only 3 of you guys are doing it.

Wow lets make sure we can get some runners / riders input to the planned new coastal paths, we need to ensure unlock-able type kissing gates are used and anti motorcycle obstacles are wide enough to allow mountain bikes and runners

I will be happy to lobby "Natural England" on our behalf
