Entry for this event nearly full, looking to extend limit this week to 450 also looking at nearby Military base for shuttle bus to venue and back approx three miles. Watch this space

Boothy - course is very flat, just gentle inclines. There are crossings of the motorway bridge which are fine IMO and there is a sharp little bridge that you cross with a mile or two left. There is a long straight to the finish where you can get a decent sprint in. I beat my PB there by about three seconds or something last year. Nice race IMO.

Central Lancashire New Year Half Marathon.  A Park and Ride system will operate from nearby HMS Inskip  just 2.5 miles away.(can't miss hight radar masts) to eliviate crowded road in Catforth, limited parking in area.  The double decker will operate a shuttle service with three pick ups at 08.00am/08.30am & 09.00am. Plenty of room in the village hall for 450+ to collect numbers (postal entries will be sent out), good baggage area, plenty of toilets on site.

Not sure i'll be well enough or fit enough

I've never run a winter event before.  What happens if it's very icy?  Will it still go ahead or will it likely be cancelled?

02/12/2012 at 11:00

that would depend on its severtiy id say

running long distance on icey roads is fun, just takes a bit of juggling thats all

02/12/2012 at 13:20

Cheers.  To be honest, I don't find it fun at all.  I find it frustrating as I can't run at my normal pace with my normal stride pattern.  It's challenging but not in a fun way!

hi SB

no, nor can i , but when i run in ice, ( solo - which is rare now a days tbh ) i just see it as a day out doing what we do thats all

and yes as you state, - it makes it a challenge -

SB - a couple of years ago this event was postponed due to the severe ice. Personally, I find it NO FUN at all running in fear of slipping over. Last year it was very cold and there was a bit of ice near the start but it was ok.

Anyone looking to sell their entry, please let me know. It'll go to a good home. Thanks.

Thanks TET, as I expected then.  I'll be keeping a keen eye on that forecast come the new year.

There is always a rist of postpnement of events during December through to March as we experienced in 2011 with the new year half (once in 7 years on this course isn't too bad)  We have taken steps to look at the course on all three days leading up to 6th january 2013 and have aranged gritting on vulnerable corners and start area. If in the event of postponement we have penciled in two dates for  a re arranged event. 27th January (probably unlikeley as end of January is usually bad) or 10th March 2013, medical and all support staff have been informed of this date.
