I've run both Hampo, and both are great races. I would class the 4 villages as undlating, with a couple of steep up and down bits. There is more 'hill' to the hills than Warrington!
There was a thread for this race last year, somebody posted a profile, have a look here
Cheers Ian and Steve, Would you guys say that it could a PB Course then. I have found flat sometimes tougher in a wierd way. I am also running my fav half which is Wilmslow in March.
Hi all, did this race last year and back for more this year! Loved it, well organised but I have a score to settle with it timewise! I hadn't done any hills or hill training when i ran it last year but i have just (2 weeks ago now) dont Snowdon Marathon so feel that i might just be a bit better round Helsby this time round!
Must be a good one as i'm travelling 200 odd miles to it, i live in south west wales but my parents are local to helsby (ish).. my dad's in Wirral AC and running it as is my mum....it'll be my first race ever with both my parents in it!!! (And the first one ever that i should beat my mum, I would love to say beat them both but my dad's a bit of a running machine)!!!
Just hope the weather in the weeks running up to it are kinder this time round......was so touch and go last year and with the distance to travel was very uncertain............all adds to it i guess!!! Oh and the park and ride is very well organised etc so would recommend to anyone instead of trying to park at the event!!!!
Dunno about it being a PB course - dont think I've ever PB'd on it ! Liverpool is faster unless you get that nasty headwind down the river.
Sorry you've missed out EF - but you have to get in early with these races. They fill up quickly. Check out the calendar and get your entry in for Lpool or Wilmslow before they fill.
the village bakery half in Wrexham in February
Flat and fast .
If anyone has a problem and can't do the run, I'll happily buy your place off you (I hoe the reason you can't do it isn't a very serious pone)
I too would like to join the 'unofficial' list of willing place takers, only if requests posted above me have been exhausted of course. Just planning my calendar for next year & hadn't spied this one till now!
As above, hopefully not due to any serious reason but any unforseen holidays/work commitments, bad weather etc. get in touch.
Unfortunately I cannot do this now, so if anybody is interested let me know.
