Not at all flat I'm afraid; they posted the course profile on the facebook page today and it's pretty shocking if you're looking for a fast course lol.

I was hoping this wasn't going to be as hilly as Windermere, but the course profile is a little bit more intense. No PB for me I guess, that hill at mile 18 looks woeful.

Has the course been measured yet?

I thought it was a good one. Scenic route, though quite tough.

Done a few of Billy's races & he always looks after the slower runners just as much as the fast ones....

Marathon number 22 for me.

I would def do this one again, but it clashes with a big 2 day ultra. Always a pleasure to do a race organised by Billy & Mark.  Hope to see you at Lancaster half again.

Forgive my shameless plugging of my brand new charity page. Did a year of 20 marathons & 7 ultras for a soldier's charity, & now excited about running for a children's hospice. Completely loving having discovered ultras....Some amazing people! If you can do the hilly Lancaster marathon, you can do an ultra! Never dreamed I would win a race, but won an ultra 70 miler in July....Need to win it again, as that really boosted the sponsorship money.  

Planning 40 marathons & ultras in 2013, for Francis House Children's Hospice, Manchester.

i only just spotted this now, i dont get onto the RW forcum as much as i'd like! last years marathon took some doing and we're looking into improving it the best we can and we are really looking forward to the 2013 event!

both ron & steve do an brilliant job with the online entries and highly recommend either when entering any of the lancaster race series online!

no need for forgiveness ria! we wish you all the luck with your quest and you achive your 2013 goals for both sponsorship and retaining your ultra title!

where does this one   go   

20/01/2013 at 19:35

hi compo,

the start & finish is slightly different but take a look at the maps on the website

Thankyou gunnerdarunner! 

Nearly ended up entering after all, after the ultra that clashed with this got moved from this date.....Only for ANOTHER ultra cancelled because of snow to move to this date!

I am destined not to be here this year.....There is always next year!

Happy Easter from Team Buff UK 

Impossibly proud to have my ultra running sponsored by Buff.....The Original Multifunctional Headwear.
