believe its £35, but you do get a t-shirt and medal ooh and aparently some food afterwards and the usual goody bag of free samples and leaflets no doubt.
1/2 half of you.. ok he he
Yer you should be ok till end of the month. I think interest is just starting to build now. Although i dont think the event has been advertised that much to date.
Ah i get you now, your be the new streamlined Stu hey he he well done its a good achievement , esp with your illness and all you can be very proud of yourself.
True , cant have it becoem a coasters thread.
This is the Preston Marathon and a few posts back i have challenged people to come up with their fantasy Preston Marathon Route
I came up with
I got a few good comments on it and hopefully some others will post up their idea of what the course should be
Pete Lovick wrote (see)I went to check out some of the new Guild Wheel last week and managed to get a good 5 miles east along the river as far as the Brockholes Nature Reserve. It was brilliant to run on. Note that the tarmac stops there though cos we hit fields and had to scramble through a fence and an industrial estate to get back onto Longridge Road to get home via Ribbleton Ave, so we'll just have to be careful whilst it's under construction.
Hi Pete we did the same and had same problem finding Longridge Rd near the Crem after leaving the Wetlands bit as you.Left a car at Shawes Arms and went on from there, Can't wait until its finished though. The bit near us at the bottom of Longsands Ln to Midery Mountain is being finished at the moment.Trainers took a week to dry out. KOB

Ha ha. Yeah Keith, I know what you mean!
It was real muddy wasn't it! We got some funny looks too clumping through Roman Way and along Longridge Road, lol. Doesn't half take it out of your trainers.
I think the best run on the Wheel at the mo on my south side is to not park at Shawes Arms but to park right at the very end of the Docks, then follow the wheel all the way east along the river until you get to Red Scar Woods, then turn back when you hit that 50 metre stretch of steep steps upwards. I haven't measured it but I'm guessing it'd be a 12 or 13 miler there and back, so just park further back east along the river from the docks to suit where your long run is up to. I'm only at 11 at the min so it'll work ok for me for a month or so.
I don't know where you mean by Midery Mountain, but let us know when it's connected from those steps in the woods right up to Longsands Lane. My schedule takes me west on the wheel before the end of this month and early April so I'll let you know where it's been tarmaced up to after leaving the Docks.
Come August and September if we plan it right we should be able to loop it fully together every 2nd or 3rd Sunday to keep us motivated. We could also do the Guild Marathon "Middle of Nowhere 14-15 mile part" by May/June whilst we're waiting for the wheel to be finished. That'd be an easy park just at Cottam village.
Pretty sure I`ll target this one. However, should training not go to plan, can you `downgrade` your entry to the HM?
Also I think a trick`s been missed; it`d be sensible to be able to enter all the races in one go. There could be `perks` offered for this like same race number in each race or something similar or a small financial saving. I realise that each race has a different organiser but it would have been a nice touch imo.
ooh, btw, hoping to get over for the Lytham 10 in a couple of weeks. Anyone doing it?
