Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

  • mulbs says: I am very slow but I am proud that I run, so thought I should join this, I have never gone under the hour on a 10k, my fastest half marathon was around 2.5 hrs and my only marathon to date 5 hrs 48 mins. I am super chuffed if I get a 10 something in my mins per mile calculatin occasionally. Have never seen single digits for that . .. do I qualify?
  • FML says: Every year I am getting slower, last pb was 2009. Came last in East Hull 20 in 2012 and loved it SAP
  • Wombling Plodder (Welsh Womble) says: "No matter how slow I run I am faster than my couch" - Anon.
  • Merry Lip Gloss says: I like being near the back, it means I have all the time in world to get better lol
  • DoricDumpling says: Me and my little leggies party at the back! LOL
  • MissChappo says: getting slower by the day it seems
  • highlandfea says: hit 46 and decided its "time"
  • Highland JB says: Glad to find some like minded and legged runners, few and far between in my neck of the woods.
  • PinkTink-RRR says: I never liked running, even at school I used to bunk off PE lessons.
    Being 4 stone over weight probably doesn't help!
    I started running last year, January 2013. I had dabbled a bit before but always gave up. being married to a running fanatic, I could see the benefits of being part of a local running community.
    I now run a few times a week, pretty slowly, but I still do it. I joined Reading Roadrunners and now have a huge friendship circle with other runners.
    I think I will stick at it this time!
    I may be slow but I am proud of what I do.
  • Nutso Lazytoad! says: When running uphilll I chant to myself "tight bum george Clooney here I come" Lol
  • Dewines says: Always found running hard. Gave up many times. Starting again at the age of 60 and glad to find a group where slowness is OK.

  • Lemon10 says: If you can't eat a flapjack while you run you are going too fast, picnic pace is where it's at!

  • Wazelle says: I've always been slow, but am now reaching new heights of slowness - honestly I try hard and it is running not walking
