Managed to get to my parents in Darwen from Plymouth. Fingers crossed that race goes ahead!

Just checking race hasn't been cancelled. Not sure what the weather is like in the Inskip area. Can you advise?
19/01/2013 at 14:27

Anybody know if the race is the race still on?

Brass Monkey and Helsby 4 villages have both been cancelled for safety

Ice forecast for tonight so the journey from Leeds may not be worth risking even if it's still on

Judging by the fact that Alan said he'd make his decision by Friday evening (i.e. yesterday) and there's no news of cancellation, why not assume it's going ahead!

Sorry been very busy but yes the race is a go go but please keep an eye on this forum just in case and fingers crossed.

How much snow/ice is there on the course, this will affect my choice of footwear

19/01/2013 at 18:15
There will be no entries on the day sorry.
19/01/2013 at 21:46
No snow but a bit of ice at 8.6miles but will be sorted by morning. For those 320 runners that sent email addresses the message reads race a go go not no no so see you all tomoz. Please give yourself plenty of time to park and get sorted and please listen to the parking stewards.

Please if you have not entered this race do not travell to the event and hope you will get a number as we are full and wont take entries on the day.

Alan thanks for organising another great event.  Even better than last year and a PB, great goody bag and hot pot.  Only tiny comment, loud hailer would have been useful. Thanks again

Thanks for a great race- Marshall were excellent and in plentiful supply. Very friendly and encouraging. Hot pot was well received at end and tasted lovely. No complaints from the St. Helens Striders
