Please, your comments are not helping anyone. I am not trying to criticise the organisation of the race so don't use my questions to turn it against the race organisers. I will repeat my post again to make that clear!

 I'm looking to run this race as training for the VLM, however I have no place. Here are some questions which can help me:

 1. As I am travelling up from the Wirral I don't want to waste a journey, so what are the chances of getting a place on the day?

2. What time should I get there if I wish to enter on the day?

3. Plan B- is there anyone willing to give up their number if they have decided not to run. Posting will be tricky due to the bank holiday so I would expect that I would pick up the number.

If you send me a message through this forum, I'll happily answer your question.

Message from the Race Referee

I have meet the organiser this morning to check the safety of the course and I can confirm this race is going ahead.

The decision is based on the current condition of the course and the weather forecast that is currently available.

If we suddenly get a foot of snow on Saturday night we might have to review it, but let's all be positive now and look forward to a good day on Sunday.

Thanks Simon, but they're not my efforts. It's the labours of a lot of other people. I'm really just passing messages on. See you Sunday.

Looking forward to it. Just done an easy 6. See you there!

 I have had to pull out due to injury.  My number would be available for the entry fee.

31/12/2010 at 14:04


I would be willing to get your number for the entry fee. What would be the best way to organise this.

Hi Sean

I live in M8 area of Manchester. Just off several main, but busy road. You're welcome to pick the number up if it is feasible for you.  my email is /forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif[/img]imrut@googlemail.com]simrut@googlemail.com.  I'll be clocking off from work very soon.

 Thank you for the offer, however it may be too much of a trip to collect the number from Manchester before heading up to Preston. It's just a shame it is the bank holiday weekend otherwise I would have suggested posting it to me.

 FAO Brian:

My message before was directed at SOUP's reply, which I felt was inappropriate and unjustified. Anyway could you please clarify my two questions below:

1. As I am travelling up from the Wirral I don't want to waste a journey, so what are the chances of getting a place on the day?

2. What time should I get there if I wish to enter on the day?

Thank you

sean send a cheque to icbinr and give him your telephone number and you can get the race number and im sure the organisers will change details over for nothing or for the £2 on day fee.

Was getting worried about this after the Ribble Valley 10k was called off earlier this week.

For those spectators looking for something to do, there is a pub just along the road from the village hall and only a couple of minutes walk away. Don't know the name of it, been a while since I did the Catforth 10k, can't guarantee if it will be open on Sunday either.

If you entered online or postal the race organiser will know your number and you may need to take a felt pen with you and an old race number to write it on hope that helps.

I'm in Wallasey and not planning to run due to injury/lack of training. You're welcome to my number if you're not already sorted.

Sean, if I were you I'd take up Carl's offer. If you get his number they will be able to do a transfer on the day.

UglyJes, please do not simply creat a new number from folded paper and a felt tip pen! Please speak to the organisers on Sunday. They will sort it.

01/01/2011 at 14:11

Yes I will take up Carl's offer.

 Brian- Which details do you need from me.

Carl- my email address is /forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif[/img]ean.britton@hotmail.co.uk]sean.britton@hotmail.co.uk. Could you email me your details and I'll come and collect the number at some point this afternoon.

Thanks everyone

Hi Carl,

I'm still awaiting your response. I would be more than happy to take your place in this race. Would I be able to come and collect the race number from you soon? Could you send me your details to /forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif[/img]ean.britton@hotmail.co.uk]sean.britton@hotmail.co.uk.

 Thank you
