More 10 and 5 milers, yes! 12K is a good distance, very rarely run. I'm in between two 12.5Ks: run one, but not the one Gus mentioned. And I'm in I suspect a very small percentage of Fetchies to have done a 25K race (Berlin). HM and a bit is a fine idea, it's a very long step between HM and marathon.

We have a nice may/June/July Friday 5 series of races in Suffolk, only done one road 10k, prefer 5 and HM.

That said we have a new 10k in August and I am looking forward to it.

Reverse 10
Brecon 10
Elan 10
Teifi 10

are the only road 10 milers I can think of in the whole of South Walies, the Teifi 10 at Lampeter on Easter Sunday is a personal favourite of mine despite the slightly madcap bit in the town in the first mile. There is also something in there for Little Britain fans if you expand the map a bit

so much that I posted before i'd finished!! No edit or delete button on here then?

But no, a 5miler seems the same sort of pace as a 10k, but clearly that 1.2miles less helps a lot. And there's no messing around with the maths to account for that 0.2mile either.

Love a 5 miler.
