Aye, should be flat
Runningbagel - Snap. Did Chester as well and just entered for this. Got to halfway on Chester and it turned out someone had stolen all my energy, the majority of my stamina, most of my breath and replaced my legs with someone else's. I think I'm a cool weather runner too.
Howdy folks. I'm the organiser of this event, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask away .
What's the going like?
I run best on good to firm but go to pieces in the mud.
cheeky blighter, it is all on a tarmac circuit inside where the horses run
is it Laps Ian? if so how many
8 laps for the half, 16 for the full and 19 for the 50k
Sounds like fun.
I'm too far south for it to be any good to me which is a pity as
I can just picture myself on lap 18 with the whip out
Just a few light taps mind you,
"come on me beauty "
Just to let you know, the half marathon is now closed to entries, still space in the marathon and 50k.
Hi Ian, I have a question for you. It says on the event website that the course is 'garmin measured'. Does this mean the course has not been certified as being an accurate distance? The reason I am asking is because I want to run the 50k to get a qualifying time for another race.
Hi NI, that is correct, it is not a certified distance, it is a garmin 1.65 mile lap. Come and run it anyway!
Sooooo, does that mean it won't qualify as a PB course?
Depends on how you define a PB course. At my adavanced age it doesn't matter, but if I ran it in the best time that I had done for the distance, I know what I'd b e calling it
Mmm, I was also wanting it as a qualifier. Will have to look in to it.
im thinking of coming up from london for this one - seems like a great opportunity for a PB. but, is there no chance someone can get out there with a measuring wheel so we really know?
Thanks for replying Ian. I think I will look for another race then as I don't want to take the risk of racing hard and for it not to be accepted which I suspect might be the case.
I'm still going for it and will hope for the best. I know the course and it has great potential and the club putting it on are ace! Gutted to be missing the Town Moor marathon this weekend in favour of a half marathon.
Thanks Minni. Shame you won't be at the Town Moor. It will be my 100th marathon.
Just had an entry update for the Town Moor. It is 75 for the half(entries closed), 56 for the full and 34 for the 50k.
Ian I think you meant you just had an update for the racecourse!!
