Well I've only gone and signed up for this years race on Sunday 21st October.
Now I've just got to keep my training on track for the next 8 weeks.

Been living in Birmingham since 1987 and never knew we had a half marathon in the City. Then again I've come to running late in life.

Good luck. I ran it on the first three occasions it was run. The third year was marred by really terrible organisation causing bottlenecks at the start and end of the race. Last year it was taken over & became a "Great Run". Think the organisation was a lot better but I was too tight to pay the £30 entry fee.

Yes it's £32 this year. But it's more or less on the doorstep and I can hope for a decent t-shirt.

I ran it for the first three years too, and after the fiasco at the finish in 2010 I said never again.

Less than half the price, chip timing, free online photos, all proceeds to charity and we're planning a nice technical tee.

That's really good value! Mr Ness won't let me run two half marathons a week apart any more otherwise I'd give it a go. I'll look out for that one next year. :)

Did it last year, quite a bumpy route round not helped by me being injured. Recovering from knee surgery this time round but at least I'm aware of the hills.

Nuts, just noticed that the registration is closed. Anyone got a spare place?
