There`s mention of supervised baggage storage. Is there any? I may need to be dropped off there early and picked up later so need to have a bag with me - ?

You can leave your stuff in the boot of my car if necessary ET. I'll be there early (next half hour or so) and will be there til the end.

Should be doing this today but I've done something to my ankle doing a NYE marathon in Liverpool and I can't walk, never mind run Currenlty lying on my bed with my laptop and it is even hurting when rested and elevated - this could be a serious one I think.

 Gutted as 2011 is going to be an intense year. I have Ironman in July and training was supposed to be intense and daily to whip me in to shape. If I can't even lie down without being in pain, what hope is there to be up & walking any time soon? 

Good luck to everyone today, hope you all get a nice 1/2 marathon in to kick start an awesome new year.

Disappointed to miss this for the second year, last year it got postponed re-arranged for Feb(i think?) and i was ill and AGAIN it comes around and i have been ill over the Xmas period and still recovering.

 Ah well, maybe 2012 is my year!

My first time at this event. And isn't it just lovely?

It was never going to be a speedy run for me, coming back from illness and injury, but the people were very friendly and made it worth the trip. I was also surprised just how flat it was, especially when looking up at the scenery and nearby hills!

Thanks to everyone involved with the organisation

Very enjoyable race

Well organised and a very flat course with PB potential.

Weather was perfect for runnin-sadly im a stone too heavy but i struggled round and was happy enough with my time.

Wouldve loved to have had a post race massage but a bacon roll and coffee were more important to me at the time.

Thanks to all the organisers

Had a GREAT time. The first half marathon run for me in event form and loved it.
Impatient driver was a good start followed by Brian saying he was my wife, LOL.

Very well organised, nice medal and very friendly officials etc.

The wife and kids came along and enjoyed themselves as well, a great way to spend a few hours in the fresh air on a crisp Sunday.

Thoroughly recommended to everyone wanting a nice run.

Tea's, coffee, butties, pre and post race massage and some cool running gear were all on offer.

Can't wait to sign up for next years run.....

Ha ha Scott.

The driver wasn't very impressed when I said we'd put the signs out in English so people would understand them

After everyone had kindly stood aside to let him through, he got stuck behind the safety car

That driver will have your 'pregnant goldfish' comment ringing in his ears, Brian

I don't think he heard me

Great run, great start to the new year (though might be biased with an 8 minute PB ) Many thanks to all the marshalls for giving up their time to ensure we went the right way!

Great run, thanks to all the organisers and marshalls for making it go so smoothly!  Thanks also to the guy with the beard and the red 'Moore 6' vest top on who was on my tail all the way round - without him I don't think I would have pushed myself as hard and got a PB!!

Hopefully will get to do this again next year when I spend new year with mum in blackpool.

Hi Linds,

I'm 'Moore 6', and I was going to apologise to you at the end for shadowing you all the way round but I was in too much pain to find you! I'm glad to see that it helped anyway! My watch battery went over New Year and without that to pace me, I just had to tag along behind someone who I thought was going at about the right pace...

I've only done one (very slow) half before, and after little training over Christmas there was no way I would have managed it all the way round without stopping if it wasn't for your unasked-for help. It was a bit rude of me, and I was kind of glad when you overtook me in the last mile!

Thanks to all the organisers, volunteers and marshalls, it was a great morning. I only entered because the Clowne Half was cancelled at the end of November and I had to do a run to honour the sponsorship money I'd received for the Bobby Moore Fund. It was very friendly and a lot of fun, and I'll definitely be looking at entering next year.

I was around and about you two, too - I was trying not to race it, and was a good bit off my PB pace, but following you in the second half made sure I didn't get too lazy
Hope you make your fundraising target, Richard

Cracking run and enjoyed Brian hammering the driver, nice way to start the day.............

Defo one to add to the list, cakes looked really nice and the mars bar was needed indeed..

Thanks to all the organisers, volunteers and marshalls

Brian`s good!

I liked the `it`s 10 minutes until the start and the start line is15 minutes that way!`
