Anyone else doing this?
Getting abit nervous about this now.... what if I am last....
Also getting a few niggles, shin and ankle on one leg hurting and sharp heel pain in other leg last night.... Always the way the week before a race (or slow plod in my case!)
Good luck to all and see you there!
Yes, good luck to all, Should be a nice day all being well. DeliH, you'll be fine-just enjoy it
DeliH dont worry like brer said.Just relax and enjoy it.
I wonder if Nicolas Winterton will start the race like last year? "Ready Steady Go?!!!!"
I wouldn't worry about being last,i would rather do the race and come last than be a eastender watching ,sofa dwelling pie eater with no self respect. Rant over.
Someone earlier asked about the 1 mile fun run - yes it is for kids, off road within the grounds of the leisure centre. My kids enjoyed it when as young as 6. The fun run is well timed to fill in the time until the leading runners return to the track. So as races go it is not a bad family morning out.
This was my first ever half in 2004 and I've enjoyed it ever since. The uphill isn't too bad and the downhill seems to go on for miles. Nice start and finish on the track, great views from the top of the hills.
this should be a walk in the park
we've run it once
and we've just last weekend completed Great Langdale HM
so this is a baby
Weather forecast seems fine for Sunday (at the moment) - I'm looking forward to this now - should be a good morning out.
Hope everyone's final few days of training/resting go well.
Does anyone know if there are still places available for entry on-the-day?
Does it ever get full?
I am not asking for myself, I am not that daft I shall be sitting in my chair taking photos.
Remember: My photos can be downloaded for free, no charge being made.
Fingers crossed for that fine weather.
All the best to everyone.
I can just see the picture now Mick.
A team of huskies pulling you and Phil. You shouting "mush".
Hey, you could win the darn race.
Looking forward to seeing you both on Sunday.

Thanks you Silkman and get carter for information about on-the-day entries.
Fingers crossed Silkman I get a really good photo of you and you look mighty fine.
I have a young lady helping me tomorrow, Kate McLean and she could well be on the track at the finish, a wave and a smile would be appropriate. You have a good run.
All the best everyone.
well done & good luck friend -
onwards - take care
Enjoyed that! Hills not as bad as I thought they might be. Never thought I'd get a PB, but was hoping for sub-1.45. Got 1.44.28. That'll do.
Thanks to all the organisers and marshalls etc.. Good day out.
Well done to everyone that did this. It was bloody hard!!! The hardest HM I've done anyway! That last hill at 10 miles killed me off!!
Great day as usual.I went out far too fast as normal and struggled a bit at the end.mind you i got a pb 20 secs better than last year.
Nice to see you Bryan race photos,i shouted "get carter" as i ran past you.
