Have done both runs on a couple of occasions and even managed to pick up some bling. Thoroughly enjoy the event so hope to be there this year too.

A long long way off but one to keep in mind. A great way to finish the years serious running. An event that has been growing over the last few years. No promises but all being well I will be up there after being missing the last couple of years.

Thanks Chrisso :)

I was counting on no one actually visiting the site today.... which is when we've discovered it's down! After spending 75 mins chatting with the domain provider, their system crashed on me with no resolution - but we should be sorted by tomorrow morning at the latest, come back and visit then!


In the mean time, there's a small amount of new info at Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/cchalf :)


Thanks,

Good value at $45 for the HM. Ran it last year with a injured achillies. Hoping to crack the sub 100min mark (finally????)in this years event. Well run and a very flat course.

My father lives at Budgewoi and I visited him last week, and took the opportunity to run part of the course. Looks good. My only worry is that it is a public footpath and we could be stymied by people walking four abreast with their dogs. I've had that happen to me on other races. But admittedly it's a remote chance and I'm looking forward to coming to represent Tasmania in this one.

Just entered into the half marathon for this event! Looking forward to it! My second half marathon after giving the Lake Macquarie half a go! Looking at going much stronger in this one as had jelly legs early on at Lake Mac due to a massive netball semi final the day prior! Sounds like a great event!

Really like that the half starts 40 mins or so prior to the 10.5 km unlike Lake Mac. Lake Mac only had 10 mins in between which added for some congestion and a long wait for those who did the 10.5km and wanted to see us first time half marathoners finish! Lots of people had left! Should be a great day! Smart thinking starting at 7am too so hopefully not to hot!

Don't worry about that Davo...hasn't happenned to anyone as far as I know. If you are doing HM, you get a pretty clear run except for returning 9km runners at one point. Running back past HM'ers is ok.

Hi Sir Plod,

There is a fair bit of accomodation around The Entrance and the Central Coast, however it is a high demand time of year, and I know that some people had a bit of trouble finding accomodation actually in The Entrance last year - so probably best to have a look sooner rather than later. Check out www.visitcentralcoast.com.au.

Thanks,
Kristy

You're going to have to try hard to finish last! The first time I ran this I had been off running for months doing IVF, was bloated with artificial hormones, and it was a very warm December day (heading up to 30C), and, despite the fact that I'm a slow runner at the best of times, I still didn't come last! (2nd or 3rd last I believe). Next year I ran it with an Achiles issue that had just struck and was quite a way off last. I'm in again for this year: it will be my first race back after 4 months off with plantar fasciitis & I'm still hoping to avoid last place! Anyway, I'm registered & have accommodation booked so I'm looking forward to this very lovely run.

Well,looks like I will have some competition for the last spot,should be good fun on the day. :D  
How about comparing PW's at the distance?
Mine stands at 2h47m10s in 2008 SMH,last one I ran.
Given my current fitness I should have some chance of doing worse than that and winning the wooden spoon. :rolleyes:
Thank God for those long suffering(long waiting)race officials. :clapping:

2:29 was my BEST! Hah!

It was also my worst because I've only done one half.  :Big Grin:

Well, checking the Central Coast Half results from last year, it looks like 2.47 would not even have won you last place: in fact only 4th last.

So you'll have to try harder (less hard?) than that to win the wooden spoon!

And with 2.29, Sir Plod, you would have beaten a good couple of dozen runners!

Just entered as incentive to get back into some serious training after a few months with only sporadic running. I've loved this event every time I've run it - this year I'm a bit more organised and have booked for two nights (Saturday and Sunday) to make a bit of a weekend of it.

Hi. My memory from a couple of test runs last year is that there are a couple of toilet blocks & picnic areas up to about the 5km mark (10k race turn point) & I don't think there is anything after that. I'm pretty sure I used a waist bottle.
Hope this is some help.

Cheers

Graham

thanks Graham...this is my first crack at a half....so i better look at the course I'm thinking!!! probably just stash a small bottle in my pocket & refill in small amounts along the way so its not too heavy.

This was my first half last year - you've chosen a great one as a starter - good luck. I hope to be doing it again this year if I recover from my fractured wrist in time & can get enough training miles in.
A further suggestion, if your planning to refil a small bottle, is there are toilet blocks (if my memorys right) at about 16km & 18km on the way back. You'll pass them on the way out. The only real hill to speak of is not long after the 18km toilet block so if you can get to 16km using the water you start with you can refil there, rehydrate & refil again at 18km. That should get you back.
Hope to be there with you on the day.
Cheers

Graham

Hi all

I ran this last year, and can give it a big thumbs up. Very nice run, great vollies, pretty flat and nice scenery. It wasnt a massive issue on the narrow track, but just something to be mindful of. The big thing I remember was the humidy. For us inland runners, it was a little tricky.

Am thinking of heading up again.

There are plenty of toilet block along the way. I run part of the course on a regular basis. If you start under the bridge there is one at about 500 metres, then in the next 8 ks about another 4. The lake has a fair few picnic and BBQ areas so that is why there are so many. If you don't want to carry a bottle then you should be fine as long as the toilets are open. Only one that I know of has a tap on the external wall.

I did this one a couple of years ago and it was extremely humid.  Flies were bad too but it is a nice flat scenic course so it was a fair cop I guess.

Really considering entering this one. I did the Sydney Running Festival last weekend, as one of my 2011 goals was to complete a Half Marathon. Whilst I was running the SRF race, I seriously thought that  that would be it for me, but I must have the HM bug now, as I'm thinking of giving it another shot!  Plus I missed my goal time in the SRF so would be nice to have another shot at that!  Plus by everyone's descriptions, this one sounds like a nice, flat course.

Will be my first HM, but I've run the course a few times over the last month and enjoy the view. Great location and only 10min down the road.

I think I'll run this again. I've enjoyed the run but never really run a time I'm happy with. The humidity of a late spring Half gets to me. Can a cool morning be ordered?

I think I'll run this again. I've enjoyed the run but never really run a time I'm happy with. The humidity of a late spring Half gets to me. Can a cool morning be ordered?


For everyone's sake we'll do our best to keep the humidity down Quinkin!!!!

Hi,
I could be in for this one.
Just need to work out transport logistics.

Speaking about transport.......is there anyone living in the Budgewoi area with whom I could get a lift?
Willing to help with petrol.

Looks like a good CR  turn-out to this half.

How about we catch up for lunch after the run on Sunday at one of the local pubs. Would be nice to finally put faces to names and also a good
way to celebrate 'barefoots' recent 100th australian marathon in sydney.

After my 2 recent disastrous half's, I am hoping that my new training program gets me back under the magical 2 hour mark. Although I did run 2 hours and 2 seconds here last year.

Cheers Christine, maybe third time lucky. I'll enjoy the race anyway. I just entered.
