JMC - I've done both for the last 2 years:

S10 55:31  4Vill 71:49
S10 53:58  4Vill 71:37 (in gale force winds)

Mike Shaw always used to reckon your Stockport 10 pace and your 4 villages pace would be pretty much the same, ie. the hills at Stockport 10 and the extra 3.1 miles at 4 villages cancel each other out.

With Four Villages (like S10) a lot depends on the weather.  Having said that like NI I ran faster (73.45) last year in a howling gale - which shows it is also down to who you are racing against.  I've run 4V 8 times and I think only twice sub 75.  The hills at 4V are nothing really it's just that they build up through 8-9-10 exactly at the point where you're resolve might be tested. 

Wilmslow is probably a better time target race (if you can afford it!).

If anyone fancies joining us, Jonah and i are doing a headtorch run tomorrow evening on the MW. 10 miles. 5.30pm at Rose Hill.

Good I was wondering who Joanh was

Clairster queen of flapjacks did very well at the weekend in both running and baking (not simultaneously)    (((clairster)))

Morticia--Thanks for reminding me. 

Clairster--Apologies for forgetting. Thanks for the flapjacks! They were shared around the goody bag packers.

well done all S10ers..hope you enjoyed the flapjacks

Malcolm tells me that Wilmslow Half entries will be closing this week so (if you can afford it) get your entries in now to avoid having to beg one later.  Also ideal Xmas present for your other half.

Thanks for the prompt RB.  I wasn't going to do Wilmslow and instead find a more low key race to do, but old habits die hard.

RB, is there an entry list? 

11/12/2012 at 13:23

ES - many thanks for sorting out the results and Power of Ten.

Do you think its my underwired push up bra that stops the chip working? Or my pace maker?

11/12/2012 at 13:26

PPP - have you entered any of the XCs yet? Or Wilmslow?

Clairster - thanks for the flapjack. It was delicious once it had thawed out after spending the night in GBM's car in sub-zero temperatures!

NI- the northern xc, not wilmslow. What do you think the situation we be regarding the 12 stage?

I could do the Liverpool half the week before and the 12 stage....
11/12/2012 at 13:44
BHB- you think you may have beaten me on sunday? I probably would have agreed until I noticed that your park run sub 19 attempt ended in failure...!
11/12/2012 at 14:43

Happy days

I had an enjoyable weekend of freezing up and down the greenwayin stratford..I never want to run on there EVER AGAIN. but at least I started AND finished two races in a row..bonus!

11/12/2012 at 15:03

Ah but...It was part of a long training run...I started off in the middle of the pack...It was not the usual course and defintely long...I was running on my own for 2/3 of the race.  I can't think of any more excuses at the moment, but I'm sure there are more.

11/12/2012 at 15:15

clairster - Well Done!
have you got much lined up yet for 2013?
have you ever heard of/done the Wye Valley One Way 50?
looks excellent:

not too hilly for you, and not too flat for me!

 

11/12/2012 at 15:35

BHB I don't think that they publish an entry list but I'll ask Malcolm.  If you're asking about prizes it's not looking good - I reckon there could be 3 WRC V50s in front of you - so treat it as a training run.

Wilmslow Half: "It's Expensive But It's Brilliant"

11/12/2012 at 17:10

PPP - We'll more than likely be entering a team in the 12 stage as not many of DT's athletes will be doing Wilmslow. It's a bit annoying that they clash. I've already entered Wilmslow but I'm intending to be at the 12 stage in a management capacity. If you want to do Wilmslow I wouldn't let it stop you.
