Just entered last minute. Looking forward to it!

I'll be there. It's my first half, quite excited. I have done most of my training runs in and around the course so feel ok about it. The weather this morning said bright and breezy which usually means strong winds in St Annes.

What's the score with parking? Can you park at the lake or on Clifton drive? Or is at all shut for the bloomin golf invaders?

William - it's two x 6 mile laps with an extra bit to make up the distance.

I'll be in a red Lakeland Trails HM t-shirt if anyone wants to say hi.

Parking at both ends of the Lake, Pay & Disply. Clifton Drive no parking, starts this Sunday for the Open, amazing, golf does not start until next Thursday, but never mind at least you can run the whole route not having to run outside parked cars anywere on the course.

Think ill try and park in Ansdell.

Its pretty windy here at the moment guys. I did a 5 mile run along the front and you know about it when the gusts get up.

Weather looks good today. Hope the wind drops.

Great race, really enjoyed Lytham but the wind when heading West put paid to anu thoughts of a PB. Took it bit easier after mile 5 when I knew the PB wasnt there and finished in 1:39:10.
15/07/2012 at 13:04
Yep really enjoyed the race. I agree, hard work running against the wind though.
15/07/2012 at 13:54
Really enjoyed it. Finished and I'm happy.

GazOC was just in front of me then, I was in 1:39:20. Yeah, that back straight from 9 to 11 miles essentially killed a sprint finish, but it was a nice PB for me. Lovely to meet William too, fast stuff by him. 

Cracking race, enjoyed it.

Hi guys enjoyed course but wind was murder ran 89.44 .well organised race conditions cant be helped probably rare you get a calm day on the coast .race I did on Tuesday didnt help the legs never mind me and the family had a nice short break as a result

William, didn't get online after Friday so didn't see the messages but glad you enjoyed it. I'm very much a beginner so was well behind you guys, but was happy with my modest 2h27, especially with that pesky wind. Thought the organisation was very good though and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Need to work on shifting some more excess baggage now to speed up a bit!

Andrew, sorry I didn't get to see you, man. I daresay our HM paths will cross at some juncture! How did you feel about the course vs the Lakeland Trails one? You seem more enamoured with the trails, am I right?

16/07/2012 at 13:03
Seven, were you wearing A Lakeland trails t-shirt by any chance? I was the short arse in the orange vest, I think we overtook each other a couple of times during the race. I was also at the train station after the run.
16/07/2012 at 13:28

Yes, Gaz, that was me. I remember spotting you a few times, notably right near the end as I was running out of steam and heading down to the lake you were still on the path next to the coastal wall - I could see you had your tail up - so I thought I'd try and hold you off. Good finish by you.

16/07/2012 at 13:30
Just read your previos post Seven. Ignore that question!!
16/07/2012 at 13:36
Cheers, over the last mile or so I knew i had to get of a wriggle on to get under 1:40.
