|1907 Around the Bay|
8,500 will take on the 30km (plus a bunch of relays, 5k runners, etc).
I last did this race back in 2009... I've always meant to go back, but if I want to give Paris to Ancaster a serious run in early April, biking has to trump running in March. This year my goal is the Toronto Marathon, so it fits perfectly as a dry run.
I want to just hold my planned marathon pace of 5:05/km. This is considerably faster than what I ran in 2009 (5:22/km), but I'm in considerably better shape. It's also in line with my result at the Peterborough 1/2 marathon.
If I can manage that pace over a pretty tough 30km and still feel pretty good, I will have the confidence for the 42.2km in a little over a month!
