PPP - Navigation's easy until you get to the second half and cross Brown Knoll - if the weather's rubbish, it can be a nightmare - it's pretty featureless up there - it would be worthwhile squeezing in a recce of at least the second half. And they do check your race history...but if you stick down the BGR I can't see them arguing! Let me know in good time and I can sort out the transfer.
It's a bit late now, but unable to do Gridleford, if you can get down there by 10am start you can have my place, yet another injury, i'm a bit pissed to say the least.
MH, PPp - Mickey tried to swap a number a couple of years ago and they were not doing swaps,he ran as them I think. The best trick to crossing brown knowle is follow a pennine vest, they seem to spend far too much time up there.
TB - that is disappointing,
J8-well done, but we do expect that of you. TST-cut a long story short, had piriformis last few days, (pain in the bum, then sciatica) could hardly walk Thursday, got a quick appt. with a local physio, Friday, couldn't bend down, took Ipufuren, got up at 6.30am this morning, same problems but i have been stretching the last 2 days, 3 hours later decided to go for a run as the pain had eased and did 24 miles 8x3mile reps around Dr's Gate in 3hours 50min, doh. Just paid £240 for 2 tyres and we need a new dishwasher (£400), so a mixed day.
Another great Harriers turn out at Grindleford and an enjoyable event as always, although by far the muddiest I have done.
I didn't have the best of races, felt tired from the start and then my Garmin packed in after 2 miles, so whereas I thought I was putting in a sub-3 effort, I actually only managed 3.12, a course PW by some distance.
On the plus side my new 'Nip Guards' were a success !
Well done on all the great performances today especially JS , Jayne L and TB (!) on winning their categories.
All the best to anyone still to race this weekend.
TB - 400 to replace mrs tb, you cheap skate.
good running at gg would have been the worst for years, the end food would have been welcome.
Well Done to all Grindleforders! I can appreciate the conditions on it, as I had them in spades on the Haworth Hobble (32M/5000ft) - character building though, and my Mountain Equipment jacket coped admirably (one of the best bits of kit I've ever bought)I was running with a sub-7:30 time in mind and came in in 7:26 so v.pleased
oh, and Edale Skyline organiser is happy to take substitutions
Well done to the Grindlefordians yesterday, most of whom had a far better day out than I did - it was a horror show for me! Still that's hopefully one duff performance out of the way!
Also, for info, my Skyline entry has been taken now...
J O - best bet is Daz,sounds like his sort of thing
Well done all runners this weekend !

Well done Grindlers!
I thought that the MWW was a bit quiet as I jogged from my long run. It was a bit tasty over Bowstones with a nice little blizzard.
23 miles done and hopefully at VLM I won't have done XC the day before.
Some great Stockport runs at Intercounties - Steve V 2nd, Elle 2nd and Katy Whiteoak an amazing 2nd too. Me and NI were a little further back
Mort - No it was actually J8 that won the prize not JS. Sums up my day - I even cocked-up the race report !
Well done XC'rs and anyone who got out of bed in time to run Trafford .
Glad to win th V60 prize even if i didn't do the race.
