Dear Phil

Delighted that the race is proving so popular but I am just wondering if there will be a medal for every finisher if you make extra places available?

best wishes

Hi Maria LOL every finisher gets a bespoke medal and a goodie bag

Entries have opened on runners world only for another 45 runners, once they have gone there will be no more!!!

Ria I know no matter what you will finish regardless of time and that's what makes you the marathon and ultra superstar you are

Haha! Alert mountain rescue on the day...I may finish in the dark!! But yeah, I'll get there eventually!

I've got really good vibes about this one! It's great to have an organiser that welcomes all abilities.... I reckon it's going to get really good reviews, & will fill up immediately if you organise another!

Thanks for panicking me Phil, clever marketing, I'm now in on one of the final 45 places, I don't like being told No!   Need to ramp up the miles in the hills, the snow now needs to do one.  This is all about finishing and thanks to your generous time limit I am happy to be a part of it.

Good luck to everyone who' s entered, I think it' s going to be ace

Fantastic that local clubs are giiving there support to the marathon, I have heard burnden RR are having their own VIP tent there's so many of you LOL
Good luck on the run today before the snow comes, save some of the course for the day

Change of plans means I wont be able to make it this year after all

So you have one spare place if someone wants it Phil.

Hope to see you soon!

I've just this minute entered while there's still places available!

Will be only my second marathon.  Did Preston last year, and looking forward to what looks like quite different terrain at Bolton Hill.

Looks like it will be a good event Phil, so thanks for putting it on and see you soon.

Had a great run today on the first 15 miles - extremely icy in places but gorgeous.

Great idea re the tent (we have two!).

Sorry to hear that Liz, be assured your 20pound will go to turning a young persons life around, someone who would have never had the chance if it wasn't for all you fantastic runners who are supporting the event so generously! Over the weekend we saw the money being spent it is truly inspirational and emotional to see what some of these young people have been through and how a course on brathay turn around these younger lifes is amazing.

Maria, glad you enjoyed the course, save a little for the day

James glad to have you on board

Great photo, i was up there yesterday and was surprised that the Mast road was one of the best gritted roads in Bolton lol, looks like its taken a hammering today though however i think its still runnable

Brilliant photo!

The picture was taken Saturday. It was fine for running as it was just soft snow. The worst bits were from Pikes Cottage to Pigeon Tower and then parts of the track around Noon Hill - it was a little icy there. 

Its a great area to run  - I cannot wait for the event, even though I will be a little slow!
