Who's up for Freckleton Half Marathon in 2012 then?

This will be the 48th staging of the race, and is the oldest in the UK.

It's been listed in the Runners World top races lists for the last 3 years

Entries are now open at ukresults

Although it's still a while away, it will be full by early March

So, if you've not done this one before, why not make Olympic year your first Freckleton?

To all runners out there-

no matter what you ability

Freckelton HM is a superb day out, everyone is catered for - a nice sized field - ample support - almost all the way

give it a go - go on ( we've done it a few times, and i greatly expect we'll return )

good luck always

I would like to do this but it's getting a bit too close to Summer. I'm not too good at running in the heat.

Like the race. Dislike the start time.

Count me in for the 50th though!

Have booked my place for a 4th year running and looking forward to it. Was my 1st ever race 3yrs ago and hope to do it every year.

Look forward to seeing you again Dave.

I may be biased, but I do genuinely think it's one of the best events on the calendar.

I was at a very good race the other day and when I congratulated the Race Director his answer was, "We just try to copy Freckleton"

I took that as a huge compliment

Im signed up for this, wanted to do it for a few years, but never quite made it. Made a bit of a boo boo though as I am running in Race for Life in the morning, so its going to be a quick change out of fancy dress, into sensible mode to run in the afternoon, so I think I may struggle a bit. Is it a flat course, someone mentioned hills?

There aren't any hills Shelby.

It's gently undulating that's all.

Why bother changing? just keep the fancy dress on for the afternoon. 

No-one will mind in the slightest.

I would suggrst just jogging gently round the Race for Life then you'll be nicely warmed up for the afternoon.

Hi, thought I would say hello.

Looking forward to doing this half. Nice start time as I like my lazy Sunday mornings.

Doing the Manchester Marathon in a few weeks so this is great timing to stop me going cold turkey after the marathon.

Congratulations to anyone who has completed a marathon recently.

Especially those who braved the elements in Manchester.

Just a few weeks to go until this one now.

Entries are going very quickly again so make sure to get yours in soon. The limit has been increased but it's still expected to be full by race day
