Will we see Nora ?

Of course not! You must be batty.

However, I understand it is acceptable for veterans to complete the downhill sections of the race in a converted bathtub.

Hi CD!!

can anyone give me any more info on this race. the profile says flat/undulating (NOT words I would associate with Holmfirth) and someone else I spoke to said " fell run on the roads". am very tempted, but dont want to be out of my depth.

I am going to give this one a go (steadily) just to try and push me above half marathon distance. Fully expect to be at the back and hoping I will be sustained by the scenery. As a rule do not races with multiple laps but have made an exception in this case because of the distance.

You won't be out of your depth Claire. There is one sharp short hill, and a couple of gentle inclines. It is a two lap course so what I do is take it steady on the first lap, then you know what to expect second time round and where you can push it a bit if you so desire.

thanks guys! ok, didnt take much, going for the online entry now....

Hi guy's, we meet again!!!
I'm in for this one too, I don't belive its described as flat/undulating, I've heard its a killer. Its not stopping me though!!
13/09/2006 at 10:48
It's not a killer - as has been said one short hill coming out of the town centre and long longish but gentle drag. Trick is to drive the course before the day if you can and start off conservatively.

Shorty 25

How is the running going?

Hi Shorty it has been a while. This will be a step up in race distance for you won't it. I am sure you won't have any problems it is not that tough at all, definately easier than you would expect for the Holmfirth area. Are you going for a pb in Selby or saving yourself for the Great North?

Hi ya CD,
Running is going good thanks, I've been doing a fair few races, as usual!! Hope everything is well with you?

Yeah this will be a step up for me, not done above a half mara before. Mmm I'm sure your tough & my tough are different things! Ha.
As for Selby, I'm going to aim as close as possible & hopefully better PB then just take it easy at GNR.
Hows things for you?

Hi all

I'm doing this one too and will be my first time of doing so. Looking forward to 2 laps rather than one big one.

hello guys, have just completed Richmond 10k, which is 14k short of this one, but if anyone did Richmond, I am sure you'll agree this cant have the same killer hills.

Also running this one. Will be first time so I do not know the course in detail.

CD it was good to see you on sunday. I have just entered via the online services so am commited now. only 10days to get my mileage up from 6.25m to 15m. must dash have a bus to catch. talk later

Hi Russell - if you get round holmfirth i should imagine Stockport 10 will seem easy..will let you know after holmfirth. there is a thread going on the stockport 10 but it can be a little crazy to keep up with. For a really hilly 10miller, try the Guy Fawkes 10 nr Harrogate on, er, November 5th! Lots of hills, lots of fun.

been out with an injured foot for a week and now got the all clear to run again and have come down with a horrific cold, am starting to forget how to run!
17/10/2006 at 16:37
clairster will send an email. I looked at the thread for stockport 10, but theres no way I am rading any of it.

i am actuall entered for both these races, and am considering the guy fawkes, as its my birthday on mischievious night and want to do something for my birthday. so may do all three
17/10/2006 at 20:54
RG - lol, probably best, the stockport 10 thread is nuts! currently i am doing coventry half this weekend (injury permitting), then holmfirth, guy fawkes, possibley preston 10 (good fast flat course) and then stockport
17/10/2006 at 22:13
tried my hardest to find a race this weekend, but to no avail. will have to do a training run instead. hope you get on okay in coventry. how far is that for you?
