How flat is the course? I've entered and I'm hoping to go reasonably fast, but I've never run this race (or indeed anywhere in Preston) before. Thanks!
Hi Alan, really looking forward to the race. It is my 1st half marathon and hoping for sub 2 hours even if it is 1:59:59. Are we allowed ipods on the race? Some races havent allowed them. I hope so as it helps me get round!
All the best
Yeah, I imagine the adrenaline boost when you go round a bend and narrowly avoid going under a car that you didn't hear coming due to being in iPod land really gets you going!
They allowed ipods at the Central Lancs Half yesterday though the race referee did ask they be kept at a level that allowed hearing a marsall and traffic.
Don't run with one myself but never had an issue with anyone wearing one in a race.
When they cancelled the Central Lancs half a few years ago, and having driven round parts of the course that was the only decision, I ended up going for a pleasant run down the ribbleway from Penowrtham Bridge to Dolphin Pub (6 miles there and 6 back for a good 12 miles). The run is pretty much on tracks and moss so a perfect run when it is too icy for running on the paths/roads. So if it is frozen at the weekend it is a route for people to consider. There is parking at the Dolphin and on Broadgate so it is easy to park up and run from either end.
I know the online entry has closed, but is there any room left for 1 more runner??? I took part last year, so I'm hoping to improve on last years time, and it's also a good training run for Manchester marathon in April.
Any updates on "weather" the race will go ahead ? Really looking forward to my hotpot.
