Any info about this would be appreciated.

 I`m doing the one at Catforth a couple of weeks before but this would be a good back-up if I don`t get a good time there. Or would it?

Yes this is a new new race and it is myself organising the event due to so many people that mist out on helsby and the brass monkeys.

The course is flat with 3 slight climbs in it which rise 5 to 6 metres over a1/4 mile and are well apart so to me a pb course.

If anyone fancies a recci on sunday morning and has a good GPS and would be willing to put it on this site we are setting of at 9.30am from the Derby arms pub which is the start of the race. If you need any more info give me a call on 07851412354 cheers Alan T.

Quite fancy this as it is on my birthday.  Will there be an on-line entry option?

Hi  tortoise at the moment runners world are just opening it up to online so is ukresults but running diary are up and running ahead of everyone and  www.shoestringresults.com should be up and running tonight.

How old are you and I'll give you your number to go with your age. But dont forget I only have 300 numbers HaHa.

Very interested in this , was thinking about the one on the 2nd january in the same area. This gives me a bit longer to recover after the Christmas binge . I think this will sell out very quickly , Alan would you be able to increase the number of entries above 300 if there is demand ?

Yes as we just need to up our numbers on the public liability insurance and with this being the first run then I would just like to put on a good event and let it get bigger on its own without the pressure. Thats why the closeing date is the 8th jan so we can decide to extend and get the logistics right so hopefully everyone goes away happy.

Hope that answers your question steve.

I'll sign up after tomorrows club night , hope I can rope a few others into doing it Alan forgot about all the hassle you get when organising a running event . This will fit in well with my target of doing the Liverpool half then the Manchester marathon.

Alan Would be Very interested in entering this one as its only a couple of miles from home. Where can I get some details ? Nothing on shoestring site, and runners world one is subscriber only.

hi there,

Can anyone tell me if ipods/music players are allowed for this race?

best wishes. x

14/11/2011 at 11:48

No they are not allowed as you are on open roads and need to be able to here traffic and the instructions of the marshalls as there are to junctions that you must cross and be able to here the marshalls and you should be listening to your body not music hope this does not put you of as it is a great course to run cheers Alan T.
