I've just heard it is cancelled. That was from Adrian Themiecke (Cheshire AAA) so probably right.

Stuart, JMC and I are heading up for some snow running in Lyme Park tomorrow.  Meet at 8.00am Boars Head.  Bring your dog.

It's on the website now: 4V Race Cancelled!

19 JANUARY: With great regret, the race is cancelled. The course has been assessed by several experienced race organisers and is not safe to run. The police would not pass the route on their inspection tomorrow so we wanted to give people as much notice as we could. There are long stretches of compacted snow which will not shift in the next 24 hours. We've been working hard with shovels to clear the club area, but the real problem is out on the country lanes which are not clear. We really enjoy putting on the race and putting back into the community, but it's simply not safe for our runners. Please spread the word.

We'll try and get some pictures up later to show you the state of the course.

To everyone that has entered and supported us in this great race — SORRY!

We'll be in touch with more information when we have it. Thanks!

SARQ - if only you'd waited to post that you could've got away with it without looking like a big girls blouse

Only just seen the posts about the Lyme Park run - I am meeting RC for a hilly 20miler tomorrow, meeting 8.30am, top of Shearwater Road (just before 17 Windows) then heading up to Marple Ridge , Disley, Lyme Park if anyone fancies that. May see some of you in Lyme Park.

19/01/2013 at 13:45
Would be up for joining one of the runs. How about all meet 8:30 at boars head.

Am- you in?

Pity about the 4 villages race was expecting some fast times.

16 miles on the MW with UB/Kev and GBM this morning, nice steady run.

Enjoy Lyme park not run round there for ages.

19/01/2013 at 14:12

I'll be starting from Poynton Lake fishermans car park at 7.30am.  Next stop 8.00am Nelson Pit car park (by Boars Head - yes that's the big pub on the cross roads) for start of Lyme Park tour proper.

There's another slower WRC group meeting there at 9.00am - we might join them for a 2nd lap.  So lots of options.

Usually just me and the deer.

19/01/2013 at 14:34
Hmmm, all a bit early and far away. Bhb, sarq, fancy the banks of the mersey environs, nice and easy at 9-10 ish? Or any other ideas?
19/01/2013 at 14:57

BT, I should have edged my bets on it being cancelled and gone on about how good I felt.

PPP did 13.5 this morning to Manchester and back after a turbo session last night and my legs are mashed. And I'm out tonight. So biking tomorrow

19/01/2013 at 14:57

PPP- (or any other ideas), if you're ever going to improve, you need to run with the likes of RB and/or somewhere like Lyme Park and get some hills in, not poncing about on flat surfaces, you know i'm right.

Well there goes my HM sub 1.30 attempt. I bet Daz's race is still on.

19/01/2013 at 17:36
SARQ - i was feeling great and couldn't wait to get out there. Absolutely gutted when it was cancelled. At least thats my story and no-one can prove otherwise!
19/01/2013 at 17:57
We could do the Tiviot Dale loop, meet at Tiviot car park at 9.
Any takers?
19/01/2013 at 20:22

I agree with BT (but without the tongue in cheek element). I had already checked the V50s and thought there was only one who would beat me.  The others who were in front / about my target had both dropped out.  I guess the training is in the bank though.

Can we split the difference and go for 9:30 at Tiviot car park. Already had a few beers...

19/01/2013 at 20:34
Which one is tiviot dale car park? I would be up for 9:30 meet.what shoes, trail or screw shoes?
19/01/2013 at 20:41
