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

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.

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.

Alright guys,

im running this race on Sunday. Any tips? HM PB is 1:29 at Warrington last year and I'm in that sort of shape. Not sure whether to b conservative or go for it. What do you think.
