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.

mr d
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 http://www.fetcheveryone.com/route-1770455 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.
