I hope to make what time and where are you meeting.

I was working on Barrow Bridge Rd on Tuesday morning and couldn't resist sharing this shot with you all of Moss Bank Park looking towards the chimney and over spill car park.

Hi All,   Very sorry but had to cancel the recce day tomorrow due to heavy snow which has just fallen in Bolton it is impossible to go ahead.   The Recce run will now be rescheduled for 10:30am on Saturday 2nd February 2013.   Apologies to everyone and look forward to seeing you next Saturday and hopefully better weather!   Phil & Kris

I see your doing the 10 in 10 you say hillrunner?... im in the brathay marathon for i guess your friend of Foxy ? :O)

Hope you're feeling better Wona. You'll be fine - there's ages yet until the race .

We've put together a Burnden Marathon Nutters Group to help with training & we've been having fun offroad around Entwistle & Jumbles and up Rivi of course. Longest I've done so far is 17 miles - there are some days when I think I'll be fine and others where I think what on earth was I thinking!

Looking forward to the recce Saturday.

 Here is a picture looking down 63 steps - before the bad snow last weekend.

Hello Wona,

Me too - not been out for nearly two weeks.

Don't try to get back too quickly or you'll get injured.

Drop a week back to where you were, and stick to little and often.

I'm walking to town (3miles) on rest days, just to give me time on my feet.

30/01/2013 at 10:48

You'll be fine Bill - I saw you sneaking past me at training on Monday - glad you're back 

30/01/2013 at 11:05

Hello All,
First of all, thank you Phil for organizing the marathon. It seems you're putting lots of work into it, and so I'm sure it will reflect on the race day in the quality of the event!
All the pictures you post (and those on the hillrunner website) are marvelous. I really regret not being able to make the recce.
Also, I have a question to all the marathon-participants from Manchester - would anybody have available two seats in their car for me and my girlfriend to give us a lift to Bolton and possibly back to Manchester on the day of the race? We'll be spending a weekend in the city to do some sightseeing and want to pop out to Bolton only for the run. While I'm at this - we're also looking for couch-surfing host (as in in Manchester for that weekend - maybe somebody is interested?
See you all at the start line in March!

Hi Marcin, Thanks for your comments and i am glad my passion for running comes through although there are more people behind me doing fantastic voluntary work to help put our little marathon together. We wanted to put on a marathon that is good value for money and raise some money for local charities and make it a special day for all runners and i hope this is what we give you bearing in mind in my view the entry fee is minimal. My satisfaction will be giving everyone of you fantastic mad people your medals at the finish and seeing my just giving account bulge .

Bill good advise and look forward to meeting you Sat.

If you all would like to email me your pictures of the course in the snow or not i would love to put them on the website, of course i will be taking a few snaps on Saturday for the site so come in your best running wear lol
