Anyone doing this event this year?

 I took part for the1st time lat year and thurougly enjoyed it. Scenic lap off lake coniston.

Race is normally 14miles i believe, but last year and also this year a bridge is damaged on the route pushing the distance up to 16.8miles.

managed 2hr 9mins last year.. hoping to go slightly better this year

What time are you aiming for this year, Ime afraid i would have to cycle round to do my 74mins  now

well its 16.8 miles again this year so to be honest just anything slightly better than last year would be great. I believe i averaged 7.40 m/m's last year.. hopefully try and aim for 7.30's and see how i get on. Training is going well, done 12.5 last weekend and feeling alot fitter than i was last year.

I'm in Darren - though you won't see me - I'll be at the back! I'll probably be nearer 2.5 hours but will be enjoying the views!

I don't think the run is too close to the marathon, you should have around a 2 hour run the week before the marathon, i'm doing this as mine.

If I was doing a marathon the week after, I would not do it.

You can have a 2 hour run the week before a marathon (although I prefer 90min.) but this is a 2 hour race.
