Why do you need more than 3?
Thats all I can ever remember there being and it doesnt seem to have been an issue before?
were there any officially photographers or were they all just locals?
want to see what the good runners look like near the end
because i was thirsty?
ive done a half with five (and i dont use any there!)
lots of other people were doing it as LSR/marathon prep surely?
Your right `crazytown`, maybe one more water station would be better `for everyone`.Say every 4 miles in keeping with `the majority` of road races.Its always good when you get to these distances to keep topped up either with water or gels,no matter how long it takes to get round.
Juicer,I know what you mean,there was a crossroad point where runners came and went from all 4sides and then there was place where you passed runners still going out.
Well done Compo,took a while to catch you up,9 miles I think,but I slowed down later on,cramp kicked in at mile 18,just made it under 2.30 myself and you weren`t far behind.Good day all round though,has to be `thee` spring mara warm up race.
Heptonstall 15 mile fell run next weekend for me,then Thirsk 10 and a chance for a fast time and PB....maybe!!
Craig ('Tiptoe'), you looked to have enjoyed it when we were speaking yesterday afternoon at the top of your street.
You didn't mention 'Heptonstall' to me though.
Have you noticed that on the Club website, that Stewart has suggested that other members also try a fell-Race (or 2?) & should speak to you, or me about them??

I’ve been scanning round to see if there were any pictures. Figure I might stand a chance as I ran the majority of the course alongside a SpenAC runner, who was getting snapped regularly.
Great race. I nearly didn’t turn up, but glad I did.
I don’t know about another water station. I hit it every time I passed, but just had a quick swill and the rest went over my head.
Cracking race erally enjoyed it and what a fine day it was!
Pulled off a 2.51 9 minutes better than last year!
The cornish pasty after the race was amazing!
Hmmm, yes. The hills were rather easier driving them in the car. Thought I was gonna die by about 13m as it had seemed to be uphill for about 4 miles. But then it got easier again.
The Knowler Hill marshall was missing by the time I got there, and I had to call a lass back who was carrying on up the hill. Then I spoke to another one who had done the same thing and lost quite a bit of time.
Great race though, cracking marathon training run. Well organised and marshalled (apart from the one missing at the vital turn). Fairly pleased with 3.13 for a Steady-away effort, and at least ran it all!
Sorry,no I didn`t get round to mentioning it.But yes I am looking at doing Heptonstall,the mileage and ascent will be an ideal trainer for `the peaks`. Do you fancy it yourself ?? No pre entry needed and chance of a car share.
Yes I have seen the section on the Ackworth site,its quite good how the site is expanding,although asking me about fell running might be a bit misleading.
Couple of days off for me,maybe have a run Tuesday night.Just starting to ease up,been scoffing all day.
