I've set two PB's at Wokingham in 2010 then in 2013. Apart from the short hill at the end in my mind the last 2 miles is down hill so just empty the tanks. Fleet is my local HM but is a rolling route. I usually run it at marathon pace to judge my fitness. Ideal for getting in and out of, Fleet also has shops to keep the family occupied.

OK, complete change. Other half has mentioned Surrey as she has some friends running it as well, so will sign up for that despite the higher cost. It is the closest to us as well so makes the travel easy.

Looked into Ranelagh but unfortnately it is her birthdya that day, so that is out. Might try and put the groundwork in for next year though!

Well that was a bust. Surrey now out after I have signed on. For a good reason (niece is being christened and I am Godfather) but back to square one and looking again.

I'd do Richmond if there are spaces still. Can't go wrong with a run around there, especially if PBs aren't a concern.
