I could do with knowing before 12 noon on sat as I can cancel my hotel up to that time
Yaktak are quite good but no good on concrete so if some road is clear and some not you would need to take them off!
Ordered some for my mum on sunday and they havnt arrived yet so they may be out of stock on some sizes, when I ordered mine last year they came next day. I ordered her the walking ones, small for her and medium for her friend
Walking From Leagrave Train Station - Directions
(there are other routes, this should be the simpliest)
Leave the train station on the ticket office side.
Turn right and go down the hill.
At the traffic lights go right and under the bridge.
BP garage will be on your right (there is a toliet in there).
Cross over the road towards MacDonalds (stop in if you fancy a McP!$$!)
Cross over on the zebra crossing (this is the edge of the running route and you should see directional signs). From here you can follow the running route to the finish line, then on to the start, but without marshalls you might miss a turn and get lost on the estate.
I recommend turning right when you have crossed the zebra crossing, walk up the slight hill. Go over the first round about, At the Second roundabout turn left (on to Northwell Drive). Follow this road all the way to LeaManor recreation centre (up a slight hill)- This is the start.
Should take about 15 -20 minutes at a nice brisk pace, a good warm up!
If you get lost at any time ask for directions to LeaManor recreation centre (or school). most people you speak to would know where this is.
Hope you feel better. I have only run once in the past 2 weeks as well so you are not alone (my lack caused by snow and laziness without the added cold) but as you say bring it on!
Glad to see I'm not the only one checking the weather on a daily basis. Fingers crossed for a big thaw. I've got family near Luton so am driving down on Saturday morning to make a weekend of it. Hopefully, the race will be on, but if it isn't safe I guess there's nothing we can do about it, and it'll be nice to do some catching up with people anyway. I haven't run for 2 days but will go to the gym and use the treadmill tomorrow.
Brookie, I'll be wearing a fair few layers, most likely topped with a black and red Adidas Dublin marathon jacket. I'll keep a look out for your antlers. Hope your cold improves and enjoy your taper.
Woody, hope your cold improves too.
I've managed to avoid most of the bugs that have been flying around work, hopefully that will continue.
Have a safe last couple of days.

Anyone have a copy of the email? I don't have anything and the website still says its on?
