Hello

Yeap - once you've signed up, you'll be sent your running number and a piece of paper to fix to your vest back... where you can put a message. You'll also be sent a sponsorship form.

Where are you running? I've signed up for Harlow

Hiya

Im running in Glasgow. Do you need to train for it? Is it okay just to walk or jog at your own pace?

You can do either.

I like to train - as it's an incentive to keep fit.

Another relative of mine has had a knee op, so is using it as a reason to get better - though won't be able to run far.

Another colleague of mine, has blatantly said - there is no way she is running, and is going to enjoy the stroll!

Do whatever you fancy doing - it's the cause that matters and why we are doing it to raise awareness and money!

I found it very exciting when I got my numbered vest - lol!

Are you going with anyone? It is usually quite an enjoyable event - though sometimes sad. I'll be thinking of relatives who have passed - some because of cancer.

Also for the teacher at school at the moment who is suffering - I hope she recovers.

Might as well run some of it, most people without any training should be able to jog 5k.

LOL - I couldn't jog for one minute when I first started training!

Seriously!

I used to be very fit - playing up to 10 hours + of tennis a week - but after I had my babies - the fitness totally went.

Now of course - i could jog the 5k even though I have only run 3 times in the last 12 months (1 being 2 weeks ago).

You've got to be realistic with your own abilities, and listen to your body!

Im doing it in aberdeen, not got my form though yet.
