New Race HQ
Eveyone please note the new start venue at the Shaws Arms not the Welcome Inn which was always used in the past..
It is not too far away and is even on the route used before in this race. It is next to the Ribble on the main road.
For anyone who has done this race before you will have passed the Shaws Arms crossing over the River Ribble at about 3 miles. NB it is on the other side of the bridge not the other pub you would have passed (Bridge Inn)
Lots of pubs in Preston
what st is it on, I must have passed it but Im usually in a world of hurt and dont notice much lol
Do you know where it is Gav....... Do you want picking up then
Nice easy one tue!!!!!!
The Shawes Arms is on the main A6 between Preston and Walton le Dale
The start is on The Boulevard.
The guys at Medicine Chernobyl are excellent so they'll have the parking all sorted.
The course is a new one. It looks a nice course too. I measured it on Jan 3rd and met a very "interesting" man with three dogs. He had this amazing ability to split words to get swear words in.
I'll post a link to the course map when i've had my tea. Coming Mrs P...............................
I was just going to email Steve Ashy to post some answers on here but you beat me to it.
Please copy and paste all of the text above into your browser to see the new course map
Struggling to get a link to work for the new course.
I've put it on Google Maps.
Anyone know how to get a working link to a route on Google Maps?
Anyone know where's there's a link to the route for tomorrow? Just interested in the course/profile before I get there.
Maybe someone could mapmyrun if they know the route and have a spare 5 minutes? (from what I understand you can't store/provide links to things you plot on google maps - not sure why, but I've never been able to do it!)
Good luck to all racing tomorrow. Looks like a coolish day, but no wind, and it's not too icy out and about at the minute, and shouldn't get much colder, so by 11am should be pretty good conditions. Hopefully if the route is flat-ish, shoud be a quick one.
Nice little run this. I followed on Ron Hill's tail for 3 miles, then the bugger just went off like a whippet.....
Found a dead mole during prize giving. Had a funeral. It was very sad.....
