Well I saw nrk but I think the rest of you must have been hiding from me. Really enjoyed the course and even managed to finish in under 2 hours. Hope everyone else had a good run.

Glad you enjoyed it & well done on the time David - it was good to see you there.

I managed to drag myself round in 1:38:08 I think - enjoyed it too though it was hard, especially as it seemed to really warm up just as I was about to start the last slog to Blea Tarn, pretty chuffed that I ran all the way though as plenty were walking

Seriously good time! luckily it had cooled down by the time I reached Blea Tarn - but it was still daylight!

Good to see you at the start. Thoroughly enjoyed the run. The view that met us after that last big climb was fantastic, and I would certainly like to do this one again despite some of those ridiculous hills! I heard some runners complaining afterwards that it was too hard, but what did they expect? This is the Lake District and the pre-race info said it would be tough. Andy was an excellent running partner, although I'm not sure who was dragging who up and down those hills. Anyway I was more than happy with my 1.50, and look forward to knocking several minutes off that time in the Cumbrian Run. Hope to see you all there.
[DavidB - How close to 1.50 were you?]

A great run, great scenery.. did 1.49... was very pleased.. willd efinately do again.
well done everyone.

I was around 1.56 - didn't you see my sprint finish?
24/08/2004 at 14:03
Not sure when this website materialised but the full results are up on it anyway

33rd out of 350+, I've got to be happy with that. Whose for next year then?
24/08/2004 at 14:04
Plenty of course info etc too, would have saved us a few pages of debates on here!

Not sure about the map unless we actually ran through a lake, maybe thats why I did well?

Belatedly checking in - first time I've been anywhere near a working computer since Sunday.

First up - thanks Millsy for the pacing help. Good to meet you - just wish I could have managed the finish you did rather than dieing horribly in the last mile to finish just a shade under 1:53.

Glad to see everybody else 'enjoyed' it as much as I did and well done everybody on getting round. Good event in my opinion and one to put in the diary for next year - might just pass on the marathon for a while yet though.

Who's up for the 10k in December?
26/08/2004 at 09:59
am up for the 10k.. is it as 'rolling' as the langdale half?
26/08/2004 at 10:44
No - comparitively speaking, its dead flat. Basically its starts and finishes in the same place as Sunday but goes up the valley to where the last drink stop was (outside the pub - how cruel was that!) and back. Last year had the same good spirit as we had on Sunday.
26/08/2004 at 10:49
thank you, I shall look forwards to the novelty of a flat race. Does anyone know of any races coming up between sept and oct please... anything from 10k to half marathon. My club, lancaster and morecombe have a flat half marathon on the 5th of September to which everyone is invited to run.

Lancs Lady

Have you tried the Cumbrian Run? October 17th I think. Flat course, good organisation, and a field of over 600 last year. Starts and finishes in Carlisle. Have a look at the separate thread elsewhere on this board if you don't believe me!

I might have seen you at Langdale if I'd known your number. However if you finished in 1.49 to my 1.50, we could be facing a sprint finish on October 17th!
