Great Pre-London Race
Plenty of pb potential on this course, first five miles are very flat other than a railway bridge. Small hill from Barnby Moor than flattens again for a mile or so, before a left turn in Torworth which brings a winding lane to the Blyth Road, this part contains some long inclines rather than hills. Mostly downhill from this point back to Barnby Moor and 9 miles, then it's a long indulating country road on to the main Worksop road (11 miles), when this point is reached there is a steady downhill slope before a short sharp hill at 12.5 miles before turning back into Ordsall and heading for the finish.
Sounds good to me Andy - thanks for the info.
Are you looking for a particular time?
Hi Johny - From Andy's description it sounds promising for you.
My only advice would be not to go off too quick and use the first 5 (flatish?) miles to get into a good rhythm and lock into your goal pace.
im aiming for a finish in this
after last weekends kilomathon i will be happy with just getting round and if im lucky, to beat last years time of 2hrs 7 mins

hi all did exactly what i wanted got round and beat last years time

never care where i come its how you feel you have done that counts, great time with an injury
the bit between 9 and 11 gets me just a long ass road
keep up the good work
do you and your sister run for gainsborough and morton striders
if you do i spoke to her and ran just behind her most of the way she left me at 8 miles but i caught sight of her again at 12 milesand finished 2 places behind her
Just to let you know the results are now on the East Retford Rugby Club site. The web page name is very long and complicated so just best to google "East Retford Rugby Club" . Hope everyone had a great race and you are now enjoying a well deserved rest.
i found them ta
I thoroughly enjoyed this event and I will definitely be back. Wasn't the weather perfect? I aimed to go under 1:35 and was thrilled to achieve 1:30:44. It is the flattest HM I have run and ran at a very even pace. I enjoyed a pint and some cake in the club house after . FJ I respect evey runner who runs and finishes irrespective of their time. Well done to you.
Enjoyed the race yesterday and pleased to finish 24th!
Well done oon getting under 1.20 Andy.
