Hi Matthew

I am hoping to get a few pirates doing this event and we will be hopefully all dressed up as well Pirates!

Come and say hello at the race

ran over the roaches today. unless we get 5 weeks of bone dry weather i'll be running in my fell shoes.

running in road shoes up there will make for great torville and dean impersonations

hey sd - cant wait to hear what you're going to don this year

Definitely the best race of the year.

As usual, I'll mull over the costume for weeks and then turn up dressed as "a runner"...

I'm a native of Staffordshire and grew up pretty close to the Moorlands area.  Where does this route go??  When is it?? I might venture out of Yorkshire and do it!!


05/12/2008 at 12:28

OK, I just read the entry form - duh.  I would love to do this, I know the area well, however it's the day after my running club's annual Xmas bash.  I'm afraid I will have to decline ....

I entered a few weeks back on-line and still have not received my race number. Has everyone else had theres?

Look out for a lady Santa.

Cazmo, I think you pick the number up on the day this year.

 Last year they sent them out, mine was lost in the post but they kindly replaced it without problems so don't worry.

Route: start from the reservoir, and then up Whitty Lane across fields to end up at Upper Hulme. Then along the roaches road, maybe 1 mile of road then sharp climb up onto the roaches.

 All the way along the Roaches to Roach End, then long return back along the roaches road back to the fields at Upper Hulme and then reverse the route back.

We re-enter the reservoir through a back route, always a bit of a slog the last bit!

Got my number today.

Unfortunately no fancy dress for me, I shall be the odd one out.

You miserable bleeder. (Plenty don't wear fancy dress - don't worry).

I've never done it before but I'm considering borrowing an Amy Winehouse wig. Can't be bothered with the rest of the gear, but say hi if you see a grumpy looking bloke with a beehive.
