Track up to top of Winter Hill. I ran around most of the course today, mostly okay underfoot - if you don't get a bit muddy, you're not doing it right . Let's hope the weather is like today on race day. Perfect conditions.
fab photo - let's hope the weather's like that on the day
Ran about 16 miles of the course on Sunday to find out what it's like and really looking forward to it now. Followed a poorly printed grey scale os map didnt really help, got lost a few times, but we had fun! Still wondering if my 5 hours estimated time wll be possible.
got some great photos and video also
Well, final destructions are out. Looks like you've got this organisation lark well sorted there Phil, it's nice to see a race giving out such comprehensive advice.
Just plotted the route on maps using the PDF and route details, all looks good. Is it correct that there are a few areas run where paths aren't on the map and it's not open access. I'm not being picky, & I'm sure everything's fine, but don't want to get shot by a farmer if I'm crossing unauthorised land on a part recce!
Looking forward to it
Noticed the signs have gone up - its nearly time!
TWT glad you noticed signs have gone up! Alfa all route is on access land, the coppice loop is UU land (not on map) although it as a footpath sign either way you will be fine for the whole course on a recce run.Chris i like the photo, are you sure you didnt take that mid summer?
Cheers for the info Phil.
David, We have a couple of places remain, i think it will be full by Monday/Tuesday next week if not before, it should have been full now but we got supplied 10 extra medals lol
I'm inDid Hardmoors Osmotherly marathon last Sunday..what a cracker..but legs still in recovery..hope this one isn't as brutal. Never been to Bolton before but good vibe on the forum and nice rural scenery will do me. Trail better than road any day..pity about the VLM entry
ps hillrunner..I really hope I don't need a map bud, cos I can't navigate out of a supermarket carpark!!!
Ben, what a difference running a track marathon then trail in the same weekend! I save the track for training couldn't imagine anything worse than running a marathon on a track!
The route will be full signposted, you should not need your map!!
The race is now full!! You just got in !
Cheers for reassurance re map reading!! Booked my digs for Saturday night in Bolton..I'm 'good to go'..bring it on
I'm a bit worried about the mention of a map, im hopeless at map reading ? whats the chance of pairing up or joining a group to improve chances of not getting lost?
Cheers hillrunner and thank you for organising this event. It must take a lot of doing, hope it all goes well. Let's hope for good weather too. Nice fell race today for me before tapering begins
No problem BR, its taken a lot of voluntary time and effort by some amazing people. We are all looking forward to supporting all you amazing people around the 26.2mile course its going to be a fantastic and emotional day regardless of the weather
hillrunner..where can I get a course profile graph from? I think you mention it earlier in the forum. Just want to gauge where my effort needs to go most!!
Roclites nearly dry from today's event and am sooooo looking forward to my first visit to Bolton in a week.
