Hello....

Wondering if anyone else on here is doing this.

Ran chester on Sunday and got a little bit hot so can't wait until it cools down. Resting for a few days before the long runs start again

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

10/10/2013 at 13:37

is it Laps Ian? if so how many

10/10/2013 at 14:16

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.

17/10/2013 at 08:53

Hi NI, that is correct, it is not a certified distance, it is a garmin 1.65 mile lap. Come and run it anyway!

17/10/2013 at 10:04

Sooooo, does that mean it won't qualify as a PB course?

 

17/10/2013 at 11:11

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

17/10/2013 at 11:33

Mmm, I was also wanting it as a qualifier.  Will have to look in to it.

23/10/2013 at 19:35

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?

23/10/2013 at 20:25

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.

23/10/2013 at 21:26

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.

24/10/2013 at 16:20

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.
