what better thing to do January 1st...

Than get up and go do a 10k run at 11am.

*makes mental note to enter after pay day*

When I first moved to the UK, my wife's family (in Cheltenham) had a tradition involving a longish country walk on Boxing Day. This was quite an event with several families and around 50 people. A 10k run at New Year's will help you to disgest any Christmas excesses, and help to keep you ready for next year's Great North Run. Which you will do, I assume...

I'll be doing the GNR as long as I can get my own place, not a charity one :)

I plan to do more training this time, too....

Do you have to do something specific to get your own place, or is it just a form of lottery (because so many people apply)?

You have to register on the GreatRun.org site once entries are open and yes then it's a lottery and you have to pay £40 if you are successful. Bit of a con really :)

Although going to check the site I just noticed that entries for the Great Womens' Run in Sunderland are now open. Will have to register for *that* after payday too! I really like that one.
