Just entered for the second year of this one, enjoyed it so much last year I'm coming back for more !

Just hope it's not quiet as hot this year -

Anyone else in ?

I'm gonna have a go,got a terrible time last year of 49.12,didn't cope at all well with the heat so I'm out to prove a point having done the Liverpool 10k in 46.06 just five months later.

Gonna be getting the extra miles in preparing for the Liverpool Half so should be ok.

Shrek i'll be back for this one as well this year. 56:56 last year in this, I was hoping for quicker myself, but the heat completely sapped me... I blame the organiser Just kidding Alan.

Chieffy I too am training at the moment for the Liverpool Half so hoping that will carry me over for this one as well.

Am back for this one too.  Entered blokey this time too    Again hope its not as ruddy hot this time.  Funnily enough I ran Aldridge 10km one week later and it was the complete opposite, peed it down and freezing cold.

 Funnily enough I think i've entered but cant remember if I have. If I cant remember must pay Alan a visit in his new shop, next to that lovely HOWGE LFC club shop

It's rare that i go near the massive club shop anymore now that Liverpool One is up and running, though next time i'm in Liverpool i will make an effort and pay JJB a visit.

I'm entering this one too. Agree with everyone about how hot it was last year. Surely can't be that warm again can it??

You don't realise how difficult it for me to be so close to 'that shop'!! I've brought my EFC mug in for comfort.

Nutty - I'll need your name to find out if you have entered.

Hi Alan

Its Joanne Fairhurst and Paul Mason from Leigh

Evening all,

How many "OGGY OGGY OGGY's" can we shout in the tunnel this year ?

and .....

Alan - have you arranged for that greasy spoon to be cooking bacon etc this year ? The smell was torture as we plodded on past in the heat.

Jay Snizzel - 56.56 is a good time - I was aiming for a sub 1 hour and came in at just over at 1hr 2 ! Still I ahve done lots of miles since then and I will be gutted if I don't run a sub 1 hour this year as I do this distance at least once a week if not more and am always under 1 hour.

It was the promise of Mars Planets at the finish line that helped me get across
18/02/2010 at 19:54

Jay Snizzel - I hadn't even heard of Mars Planets before I had them - somehow I ended up with 2 packets but both were out of date ! Ate them anyway - does chocolate ever go off ?

18/02/2010 at 22:28
Well mine were out of date as well, and i'm still alive so i suppose we can say that chocolate never goes off. FACT!

Nutty - we have an entry (postal) from you but not Paul. You are number 12.

I keep it in a most secret place for safe keeping. I celebrated with it yesterday at 4.50pm!!!!

Anyone running over the weekend, if so how did you get on & where did you run ?

No running for me due to 2 reasons :

1 - Snow  Again - when will it stop


2 - The Wife got me decorating

Can't say too much as I havn't told her about this race yet !!

21/02/2010 at 15:46

No running since Friday for me, because of the snow and didnt feel 100% this morning.

Going tomorrow after work instead.

I'm going to run it for the first time this year and I'm trying to get an idea of the gradients involved in the run (notably getting back up the tunnel!).

Any thoughts on which bits are the toughest and how bad they are would be much appreciated.

It's not an especially tough race to be honest Dave.

Much is made of the gradient in the tunnel. If it were that bad, I wouldn't have a pb off it for a 10K!

And I don't like hills
