I'll be doing this as well, they're not likely to cancel because of snow unless it's really bad (it was snowy at last years race). I'll be in a Horsforth vest so keep an eye out for me folks
I'm planning on doing it, if my foot holds out (been having some pain in it).
It's the first time I'm doing it too and I'm really.looking forward to it. I was hoping to get out and train for it, maybe do the route a few times, but with this injury I haven't been able to. I've done Hellrunner though so it can't be worse than that surely! Everyone I've spoken to seems to think it's difficult.
I hope it doesn't get cancelled. I get a kick out of running in adverse weather conditions!
Yorkshire Rob - I'm assuming you run with Horsforth Harriers? I've been looking to join a club and was thinking about Horsforth, I'm only down the road in Rawdon.
Starsnspikes - I do run for Horsforth, you're welcome to come along any Tuesday to the clubhouse (which is the cricket club in Horsforth Park) and have a run out with us all. Look forward to meeting you
re chevin chase, I know the route pretty well and it shouldn't be too bad provided you've run a few hills. The last mile or so is downhill as well.
Is that Newlay bridge behind you? (& what a glorious piece of iron-work it is!!)
So it is, I ought to know it, with our own visits to Ripley (mainly for the ice-cream shop)
Having looked closer, I can see the dam wall on the middle-right of frame
I still stand by comment about Newlay Bridge;
When I hit those fences Elli there was only a few runners round me and I took them nearly at a jump, no slowing down for me
T shirts were a bit sparse weren't they? I take it you're a Medium, I took a small instead. I think they had problems with the supplier
*edit - just checked the results, I was in 58th in 48:24, well inside the top 10% so happy with that
