Dave, know the feeling ... just been out now and forgot my gloves ... big mistake ... after 3 miles it didn't matter though as fingers were so numb I couldn't feel them !

We were doing hill reps at 7:30 this morning, and only had my lightweight gloves, my fingers were painful they were so cold

Looking forward to this! Thanks loads Matt! I kinda hope it snows, but that it still goes ahead. I like running in fresh snow....just not the nasty frozen slush!

Heard lots of good things about it! I like doing a new race that has great reviews....

I'm not worried about racing in the ice/snow - well, not too much; but I am worried about getting there.

Same here, have a journey of approx 60 miles to get there. If the weather turns out to be as bad as predicted there is no way will be able to make it.

Getting there shouldn't be an issue unless there is massive snow fall... The start is only 1 mile from the motorway, and the main road through Helsby to Frodsham (where the park and ride is ?) is a busy main road and bus route

Stop worrying ! Anyone would think you didn't want to do it

Wuss

Well at least it's only a 15 minute walk to the start or me

Latest forecasts has the snow tracking further south - so the NW may get away without too much snow - if any. Still going to remain cold though - remember those gloves.

Just been out, mainly on Frodsham Hill but the roads were fine. Even took my gloves off towards the end

Appreciate that info Dave, when you have a ways to travel and dont know the area its good know its close to main road/bus route etc.

The race actually starts on the main road !  and The park and ride is at Helsby School wich is about 2 miles from the start, So that road should be clear....

I'm just about to go and run it !

Still no sign of snow tho

forecasts changed again - more snow for NW tomorrow now - how exciting!

It's snowing in Helsby right now

Dave - if you don't mind any weather updates over the weekend will be very useful...
