my legs where dead by the end this is 2 weeks after getting 3h43 in chester marathon
Brilliant, thats all I can say. As much as I am aching today, it was well worth it. Anyone know where there are any photos?
Wokky, some photos on the race's facebook page. Some to be found at http://www.roytonroadrunners.co.uk/apps/photos/album?albumid=14110879
What a fantastic event! Top marks to the organisers and the volunteers - for bringing it back to the racing calendar and for doing it so well. Great course, great views, amazing support, totally efficient organisation.
First time for me..happy with 2;01 finish..hated the last 1/2 mile but overall brilliant...well done to the organisers..defo do it next year
Just put the following on marathon talk, may get mention on show, unlikely but you never know.
RAVE Oldham Half Marathon. Tech t-shirt, great support beautiful weather, chipped time, free race pictures, tea and coffee straight after race and then a free buffet and soup in the local pub all for £14. Tough 1200 foot climb but stunning views at the top. Just shows what can be done for a cheap price. Puts the bigger races to shame.
Can only agree with Sir John. What a great run but i still have bad dreams about those hills. We must have been running together cos i came in on 1:43 also. I liked the fact that it was run by local groups and runners for the community. It has a friendly feel to it that was lacking at the bigger manchester events.
