I did the Guys 10 mile in the area yesterday and there was a bit of patchy ice about, first time I've run a road race in icy conditions. You just had to watch your footing and use a bit of common sense, but if there was widespread ice on the roads around there it wouldn't be much fun and there's no doubt it would hamper your running style and your time, especially so for the quicker runners. Additionally, it's very much farming country around there and you can get quite a lot of muck/mud/slurry etc on the lanes, which is a bit of a bugger when it's freezing!

It is a nice part of the world to run though, lovely views of the Bowland Fells to enjoy if it's clear, and relatively quiet roads. Plenty of good country pubs for afterwards too

Hi, form sent of ages ago, no acknowledgement, is this usual?

I've only ever entered FCT events online, but whenever I've emailed a query I normally get a very quick response indeed, so it may be worth emailing them.

Thanks RocketRon.  I've checked spam, nothing there.  I would like to confirm that the registration has actually gone through (payment was taken) which i don't think I can see on that link.  Is there a simple way to ascertain this?
