I did this race last year and it took me 2hrs 9mins and there was still a few finishing after me so I reckon with 2 hrs you'll be fine. (I'll be behind you at least so you might just be second last)
Plus there was a mars bar at the finish which will encourage a last minute sprint.
Hadnt realized it sells out.
I'll have to get my entry in quick!
Lancaster Half had a change of course due to flooding, and the change included a couple of hills which wrecked my PB attempt by 36 seconds!
I was hoping to run this one as a leg loosener after Christmas but it may turn into a serious attempt on a PB now!
Sells out? Didnt realise so many people wanted to run so soon after New Year. Most of the people at my club said it was too close for them to recover!
Welcome aboard Scott - I'm sure someone will volunteer to disown you of your mars bar - well done on the 45kg so far - that's an impressive achievement
I got my confirmation email for enetering on the 1st November and my number came through in the last day or so, so you should get it pretty soon. It also comes with some good instructions and directions.
However, also in my bundle was an application to do the Blackpool Half Marathon in February and I am really tempted as I haven't done that one before. Evil tempting more races. . .
(mars bar prize not necessary)
(also apologies Scott - in my congratulations I robbed you of 1kg - and I now how hard each one is to shift)
I've signed up . My race number came within a few days, 600 and something.
As I see it, I'll have a hangover on 1st Jan, spend all day lazing about, drinking lots of water, so I should be rested and hydrated ready for the 2nd !!
Don't actually know where Catforth is...............other than near Preston somewhere (deduced from the Post Code!)
I entered last night. Hope the weather is like it was second time around last year not that black ice nightmare. Not sure whether I`ll be `racing` or `taking part` but we`ll see how training goes and how the Xmas Xcesses go!
Do you think there will be entries on the day?
I couldnt make the rearranged date last year after the first one was off
