Yeah, the hill at the start is pretty tough, but it serves as a good warmup But once you're at the top it's much much easier the rest of the course. The offroad (well, it's more of a track) section can be tricky if it's icy, as it was last year, but aside from that it's a pretty good course
It's postponed to the 16th Jan due to the weather.
Probably just as well...
Oh, that's a shame, Duck.
Conditions would've been awful, though.
Now on 31 Jan!
Don't suppose anyone knows anything about this - supposed to be tomorrow but looks like it might have to be postponed again after more heavy snowfall, but nothing "official" as yet.
The organisers must feel this year's race is cursed, it's already been postponed twice due to the weather!
I live in Lumphanan and have ran this race in the past.
I've just ran the route for you this afternoon (Sat 30th Jan). There's lots of snow and slush. Only about 10% of the route is visible tarmac. Quite a lot of ice too. It's slow going. Best use trail shoes if you have them.
