Anyoen fancy a blaster?
It's fast flat and very very fast, although it's a whopping field. I'm up for the ruck, anyone else?
Great stuff, I'll be travelling through from Ellesmere Port, hoping to twin up with someone I know who'll be coming... I'll actually get ready for this one, every other 10k I've done on tired legs this will be a balls out the barrecks race me thinks... lets hope I'm in decent shape, although those Sub 30 lads might have a few minutes on me
Hope marriage is treating you well.Did37:32 at Tees Pride 10k 2 weeks ago (best for 2 years).So hoping to go sub 37 at Abbey.
I actually don't like the race (too big and crowded), but it is a pb course and I've missed it the last 2 years due to injury & illness , so I'll be giving it a go.
I'm down for it., my pack arrived last week. My second 10k and aiming to beat my 71 mins i managed in June, so won't be troubling many of you! Partly why i go for big races, i can hide in the crowd!
i know the course will be pretty boring though, i usually avoid out and back routes when training. don't want to run with ipod though, i like to enjoy the crowds.
It is fast so I will be there again. No I don't really mind that its £15 for the privilege
On to important matters as a Leeds Dash virgin.........how are the pre-race toilet facilities anyone??!!! Also, travelling up from Macclesfield the day before to do the race...does anyone know a good and reasonably priced hotel nearby? Thanks.
There are the usual facilities near the start, but if you remember to take a 20p with you, you can use the much nicer and warmer facilities in top floor of 'The Light' which is a covered shopping area further up the Headrow (the main street) from the start (just past the Art/Sculpture Gallery). I find this a good place to hang around anyway as it's usually warmer than outside.
There are loads of the usual cheap city hotels like Travelodge/Ibis etc within walking distance of the start . As I live in Leeds I've only been to one (the Travelodge in Vicar Lane) and it was after a Christams Do, so I'd have slept anywhere. It seemed Ok though.
I come to this race every year hoping to go sub 40 minutes, and yet again I'm setting myself up for disappointment...
