LOL Orbutt - the more pirates there are - the higher up the field you'll finish !

 

Unless its the drinking you're concerned about....

Anyone struggled as badly as me with the challenge of trying to train over christmas and festive illness. Got a feeling I'm going to suffer. Reset goal from sub- 1:30 to sub 1:40

Antony, I'm with you on that ... combination of breaking myself at back end of October, and then Christmas, is pointing to a potential PW next weekend .... and todays tortuous 12 miler did nothing to dispell that either .... ah well .. time to zip up the man suit !!!

I've had to pull out of this due to a calf injury
I've managed to pass on my number to another runner with the help of Steve from Helsby running club though, so maybe I'll get a better time than I expected

Anyone else got a spare place by any chance??

Holgs and Beer & Lard were trying to off load places

 

There isn;t any snow here mate

14/01/2013 at 17:21

wet and horrid when I have just run past the start and back. But no snow

I do remember running it in icy conditions a few years back... Someone from Penny Lane Striders came past me on his arse going into one corner

I remember that icy one ! I couldnt feel my feet til mile 10 !

Yes, I've run this in quite poor conditions so I think unlikely to be cancelled.  They usually put updates on their website if it is looking dodgy.

last year it wasn't very nice.. and our boiler broke down whilst I was running it, so no hot shower when I got home !!

I have a race number up for grabs if any body wants it. Unable to run due to my ear drum bursting. I will send it to the first person to e-mail me their address, first class, for free. Hope somebody can use it . Or you could pick it up if you prefer, I live in Greater Manchester. The number will be free.

Hmmm, weather forecast for Friday\Saturday could make it a little interesting ..... although I am thinking of going and hiding a pair of skis at the top of the Alvanley hill, which should make for a great last couple of miles time !

Ran thro Helsby at 7:30 this morning, Bit slippy and needed thicker gloves !  But have run 4 Villages in much worse conditions

That's a great idea. You will have to watch out for the jump of the bridge and the sharp bend at the bottom on the hill.

The conditions aren't bad at the moment. Few icy patches, a bit cold but that is about it. However, the forecast for Friday & Saturday isn't great "Outbreaks of sleet and snow spreading northeast through Friday into Saturday"

Assume the race is going ahead unless  the weather is exceptional. Any changes will be on www.helsbyrunningclub.org.uk

Wrap up warm folks!

As long as my hand are warm I'll be fine. Hate having cold fingers though!.
