Yeah maybe the goody bag ; I thought maybe mine had a hole in the bottom , a sweatband and a little container of lip cream[?] or at least I hope it was lip cream !!! But I was just chuffed to have finished and I'll probably be back next year even if you got a slap across the face at the finish - my favourite event Coniston.
But that fella needs to have serious word with himself , he was behaving like a 3 year old regardless of where the car had been parked. - embarrasing.
It was a lovely white bag though!
Only my second race ever and I had a good time, I wasn't racing it and using it as a training run, beautiful sights along the way to boot.
Water stations wise it was cups and they we're not always ready at the slow end of the field which was a little dissapointing as I had to walk through the stations. I wasn't bothered about my time so walking wasn't the issue, I would have liked to have practiced taking a drink on the run that's all.
I will do this again next year I think and race it, great atmosphere, great views and well organised
Quays I take it you were using it as a training run for Manc Mara, I was originally planning to race this one but signed up for manc late so it was a training run for me too. (that said I ended up racing my friend and did it a good 5 mins quicker than I intended) good fun though and great views. I had a camelbak on so didn't bother with the drink stations
Yup sure did Wesley, It was a really nice run and good to take in a couple of hills as Manchester is pretty flat for training and the odd hill won't do any harm. I did a nice slow 2hours 13
Thanks everyone for your kind and useful comments about our Race. I appreciate there was a problem with cars leaving the field too early and we plan to keep the gates closed until 2pm next year.
Good luck with your other races in 2012
