I sent in my forms for the White Peak "Swift" Half Marathon 0n 16 May 2009, and paid for my kids' entries for Christmas... hmm... isn't that really a gift for me? Oh well.

Join us! The sign-up is limited to the first 200 people and opens on 1 Jan 2009 - it usually fills up by April. Here's the link to the entry form:

Its a great race; soft underfoot on an abandoned railway line with fantastic scenery and a 800 ft downhill cruise for the second half - really fun!

There's a video of Nick and my Swift Half run in 2009 which can be found at this link on Runcast.tv . Petra and Snowshadow Phil also talked about running it this year!

That race sounds amazing. Personally, it sounds scary, only 200 people. I'm wary of races with less than 1000, I don't want to come in last =).

How come just max 200 runners? Great landscapes, wish I could have a "space machine" and come run it!

Limited to 200 "because of restrictions imposed by the authorities" - I assume becase it is in the Peak District National Park. Petra, Nigel (RFTR) and Gary W have now signed up!

When I ran this race in 2007 I was the second to last marathon finisher.. They were packing up when I came in. Not training for the race had something to do with that terrible performance but it was definitely not a day to be running a race with only 200 people in it...
