Who's in for 2014?
Hillrunner ...I ran up Rivington Hill ..re your statement early ...well right to the last tip part..LOL
You're a better person than me if you can run all the way through that farm without exploding Wona!!!
i think it's park run and Trotters 5 for me this weekend to keep milage down in preparation For next week. Otherwise I'll get bored and do something silly...
Good weather forecast for Saturday but I suspect it's still going to be wet up there. Fell shoes or trails shoes is still the burning question for me as I know there is a lot of hard paths and roads but also some pretty boggy sections of moorland.
If anyone has got a recent update on conditions it would be helpful and much appreciated.
Yep, it's wet. Monday on the section from rivington lane to finish terrible mud in the wooded section just before climb up through the farm, also bad going down track south from collier's row. Presume bit north of Belmont road and some of the white coppice loop still wet too. It's raining now. More rain tomorrow but Saturday does look better. The forecast says 0% chance of rain on Saturday. But I bet they're not from round here.
Dan, what are the mile points for those wet 'hazards'.
havent got ref to the map right now but about 20 mile for world of mud, bit south of colliers row about 25 mile, the boggy section north of Belmont road perhaps 8 mile ish
Thanks to all, much easier than last year. Big thanks to the first aid folk who helped with my left foot, sounds like a good name for a film. Without them I would have failed. An enjoyable run and it was a run (no walking) in my non-trail shoes, wish I had them what a difference they would make.
