Im flying over from Guernsey to do the race.... and did the same last year! (finished 7th)

 Im all about fast course and PBs. And You'll struggle to find a course that quick at that time of year.

 Its also stacked full of runners between 70 -80 mins which is useful for fast times.

 I couldnt fault it last year, and hope its the same again this year.

I agree with No more nails, it would be far more interesting if the route went through the historic citry centre.

They would need the help of the council, but take Hull as an example, they have just got the council  to let a local club  run a marathon through the city of Hull.

OT.. I'm old enough to have run the 'Yorkie' half marathon back in the early 90's.  That one covered quite a bit of the city centre including the main shopping avenue 'Coney Street'.  At one point I thought we were going to be directed through British Home Stores!  This one finished very close to the BM finish actually but from the opposite direction.  In the end the organisers found it to be just too much hassle and called it a day.

On a general note it is usually easier to get an event put on in a city centre or prime site if there is a charity involved.  My club help with the Bramham Park CRUK run every October which is a 5k & 10k race.  We help with course measurement, results, marshalls, marking the course, building the finishes etc.  However I don't think Bramham Park would let our club organise a race directly, CRUK are the people who get the permission.

Hey Smifffie see you there!  I'll be aiming for around 1.30 - 1.31   Get there early - last year it was chaos in the registration area.

Thanks Minni, next to try to juggle some 'proper training' time, i.e. ex OH to have both kids so I can run

Speed is OK and trundled round 9 miles with Spud (dog) on Wednesday night so this half will be fine, but London & Edinburgh will require some decent LSR's as I'm fed up with surviving marathons instead of enjoying....

What time'sh is 'early' for Brass Monkey, is it collect numbers on the day?

 Off to find calander to mark off weeks to races to focus my brain

Seems like legs are remembering LSR's OK 14 miles LSR last Saturday, and 15.7 this Saturday and I wasn't a gibbering wreck at end   Theres hope afterall

As you all may have seen I have recently put on a new half marathon called the inskip half and it is on the same day as BM and helsby. It is a good fast course and if you go to the post on this forum you can get the garmin data and see for yourself hope to see those who didnt get in to the other races on the 22nd of jan cheers Alan T and this one is only 12 quid.
