Photo's from 3 years ago You will have some idea now for those who haven't done it before
Thanks for the info everyone, and for the pics Brian! By the way, I must say thanks for the photos from the Wolves half - for once I had one of myself that I actually liked and wasn't too embarrassed to show people
Looks like I'll be in short spikes then (6mm), depending on how my ankle feels (currently recovering from an ATFL sprain). I'm reluctant to get new shoes as a) I'd only ever need them for this race and b) I don't want to risk aggravating the injury with anything I haven't worn before.
What have I let myself in for??!
There are defiantly hills almost from the start and then near the finish there are some very steep steeps (Jacobs’s ladder).
It’s not the hardest of races but with the bottle neck at the start and then leading up to the first climb it’s never going to be fast.
There is a lot of mud, the water crossing and usually soggy leaves but it is a very scenic course and I would say fun to run.
Weather Forcast says it should be Frosty and Dry.
Matt, yes I'm from Wolves & Bilston, you do know me and we have run together in training . Good showing today from the club, first lady and second man. You ran a good time too I see, well done! See you on Tuesday.
Looking forward to seeing the rest of Brian's photos, he does a fantastic job at all the local events. Thanks Brian, keep up the good work!
