Best Laid Plans

Some ideas for 2011 –

  • 20 March 2011 – (Sunday) – Reading Half Marathon.  (http://readinghalfmarathon.com) I’m already registered for this and it will my my fourth time doing it.  Great run with a finish in the stadium.
  • 03 April 2011 – (Sunday) – Regent’s Park Races Summer 10k 6 Race Series. (http://www.regentsparkraces.org/) I like the look of this series because they’re only a trip on the train into London and you’re there.
  • 01 May 2011 – (Sunday) – Regent’s Park Races Summer 10k 6 Race Series (http://www.regentsparkraces.org/) I like the look of this series because they’re only a trip on the train into London and you’re there.
  • 02 May 2011 – (Monday) – Shinfield 10k in Reading, Berkshire.  Organised by the Reading Roadrunners running club (http://www.readingroadrunners.org).  I wonder if I could be adventurous and do the one on 1st and then this one the next day?  We’ll see how fit I am by then.
  • 17 May 2011 – (Tuesday) – Queen Mother Reservoir 5k/10k Race Series – Race 1 (http://www.purplepatchrunning.com/).  This one is 7:30 in the evening and I may not be able to do it.  My lovely wife works a lot of evenings and there could be a conflict.
  • May 2011 – (Date to be confirmed) – Woodley 10k (http://www.woodley10k.co.uk/).  I did this one previously and it’s pretty good.  I’ll have to keep an eye out for when registration opens.
  • 30 May 2011 – (Monday) – Bupa London 10,000 (http://www.london10000.co.uk/).  This is one of the best runs ever.  Really well organised and fantastic running around the centre of London.  I highly recommend this to everyone.
  • 05 June 2011 – (Sunday) – Wallingford Thames 10k (http://www.thamesrun.co.uk/).  I’ve never done this one before but it looks interesting.
  • 05 June 2011 – (Sunday) – Regent’s Park Races Summer 10k 6 Race Series (http://www.regentsparkraces.org/) I like the look of this series because they’re only a trip on the train into London and you’re there.
  • 12 June 2011 – (Sunday) – Blenheim Palace 10k – (British Heart Foundation)
  • 12 June 2011 – (Sunday) – Wargrave Charity 10k (Wargrave Runners)
  • 21 June 2011 – (Tuesday) – Queen Mother Reservoir 5k/10k Race Series – Race 1 (http://www.purplepatchrunning.com/).  This one is 7:30 in the evening and I may not be able to do it.  My lovely wife works a lot of evenings and there could be a conflict.
  • 03 July 2011 – (Sunday) – Regent’s Park Races Summer 10k 6 Race Series (http://www.regentsparkraces.org/) I like the look of this series because they’re only a trip on the train into London and you’re there.
  • 10 July 2011 – British 10k London Run (9:35 on a Sunday)
  • 19 July 2011 – Queen Mother Reservoir 5k/10k Race Series – Race 3
  • 07 August 2011 – (Sunday) – Regent’s Park Races Summer 10k 6 Race Series (http://www.regentsparkraces.org/) I like the look of this series because they’re only a trip on the train into London and you’re there.
  • 04 September 2011 – (Sunday) – Regent’s Park Races Summer 10k 6 Race Series (http://www.regentsparkraces.org/) I like the look of this series because they’re only a trip on the train into London and you’re there.
  • September 2011 – Mortimer 10k (http://www.readingroadrunners.org).  I’ve done this one before and it’s quite hilly.  Just gotta wait for registration to open.  Great morning out for the family as well!
  • 02 October 2011 – (Sunday) – Reading o2o 10k, Thames Valley Park, Reading (http://www.purplepatchrunning.com/). This is one of the very first events I took part in back in 2007 when it used to be organised by Oracle.  I’m thinking of giving it a go again.

    How about the Crisis Square Mile Run in London, June 9th for the single race, or rope in some friends for the relay the day before.
    A beautiful route round London, it’s a great race with loads of benefits as well as raising money to help end homelessness!!!
