Well done to the organisors.The bacon butties and coffee in the centre were ace...thanks to the lasses feeding us all.
Enjoyed the race..nice to have a quiet time running rather than the masses of the GNR to trip over.
Might come back next year...okay I will...one moan can the water stations be at 9 mile instead of roughly 11 miles...the signs promised us drinks from mile 8..which wound me up at bit..
Thanks anyway lovely folk...and isn't it posh and nice around Catforth?
Richard - hope the fundraising went well. Good for you! If it's any consolation I went straight to the massage people straight after the race!! Thanks again for the motivation and you weren't being rude at all !
Great race, enjoyed it very much .
Sounds like I was around you too Frodo. The red "Moore 6" (hi Richard ) was just ahead of me for a good while, but I lost sight of you towards the end.
I was recovering from Xmas chesty cold germs, and hadn't run for nearly 3 weeks, so I definitely wasn't racing (nowhere near a PB!!), but that made it all the more enjoyable. No pressure.
I saw the poor chap struggling and being sick towards the end, hope he made it back OK.
if anybody was near me, I was the misguided runners who was told to cross-over onto the pavement on the rhs (at about 12-13miles), and then switched back again after being reminded that road races are always stick left (I knew that really, just lemming mentality of doing as I'm told!!).
One minor gripe, perhaps more than one ladies loo.........otherwise a perfectly organised fab race, I'll definitely be back next year.
It was you that Brian was encouraging me to race!
I was just as bad, I followed you when that guy told us to run on the right. I tell you, that swerve from left to right to left really felt like it added an extra half mile on at that particular point, even though it could only have been a couple of yards
Frodo, glad it wasn't just me swerving from left to right and left again, I remember thinking knowing my bloody luck I'll get run over criss-crossing the road .
Glad to be of assistance Frodo.
Bburn plodder: it was me who told you to stick to the left.
The guy who told us to cross was nothing to do with the race - he was just interfering. I dealt with him later in much the same way as the impatient driver
I saw you give some bloke a bollocking at the end of the race.
I wondered if it was that soup fella
Frodo & BB - I was a bit of a lemming too ! I'm sure I was probably following you guys around for a bit so thanks to you too. Being a lone wolf when out running (no club..... yet) It was nice to run with other people and not struggle. It was a real confidence boost and a lovely way to start 2011. Getting all misty eyed thinking about it! It was only my 2nd HM, first being the GNR in 2001, which i did in 2h30 so i smashed my PB, hence the over excitedness!
Brian - you had your work cut out with disgruntled drivers and rogue direction givers!!!
Sorry to hear about the guy being sick, when I passed him & asked if he was ok he said it was his stomach. Hope he's feeling better now, he was doing so well for ages.
