PREPARATIONS are well under way for this year's Standalone 10K with The Comet once again being one of the race sponsors.

The 19th running of the race on Sunday, October 1, will once again start and finish at Standalone Farm.

Entry limit is 1,200, up 200 from last year, with no entries on the day.

There is a dedicated website this year www.standalone10k.org.uk or there is a link from the North Herts Road Runners home page www.nhrr.org.uk from which there are various methods of entering the race on-line or by post.

There are still a number of places left but North Herts Road Runners who organise the ever popular event are expecting them to fill up fast in the coming weeks.

The usual free entry to the farm will apply and there will be a free to enter children's race after the main race.

However, the roads to the farm will start to be closed from 9.30am so the advice is to arrive early.

Karen Dodsworth, chairman of the event and Comet Sports Awards Coach of the Year, can also provide a training plan for people wanting to attempt the race for the first time. Richard Harbon is the new race director.

North Herts Road Runners is again appealing to runners of all standards that would like to run with others particularly anyone wanting to train for a marathon in the spring. Again, details on how to join are on their website or e-mail publicity@nhrr.org.uk
