Does anyone know if there'll be any mile markers on the course?  I've no fancy GPS watches so hoping to try and keep pace with a basic stopwatch and (hopefully) some mile markers.  Thanks in advance.

not long now how is everyone's training going? I did a 11.5 mile run last week and am hoping to do another long run this week before I start to taper........good luck everyone! I ran the Manchester marathon in April and found the training crucial to my experience and enabling me to finish. I would love to do Tatton in under 2.5hrs

HI Lily

Getting excited about it now .  I did a 13 mile run on SUnday - it was very hilly and it hurt a lot! I was exhausted by the end of it and very glad to get home.  Was good to do the distance though.  Think I'll do a 10miler next weekend, and then I have an 8 mile race the weekend after.  This should lead to a nice taper for the week leading upto the HM.  That's the plan, anyway!

If you completed the Manchester marathon (in those conditions!!) I'm sure you'll be able to do this nice flat half un under 2.5

yes this is a pretty flat half, but moordale road in knutsford is a short but steep road and as you leave knutsford on mobberley road you climb toward mobberley. throw in a couple of railway bridges in mobberley and ashley as well.

this is just a warning for those who think this route is pancake flat. theres no hills and a  PB is a real possibility.

THanks for the info cap66.  THat's actually a bit of a relief.  I do the majority of training on hills (it's more or less impossible not to where I live!) and the few times I do a long run on the flat canal route I find it quite boring and surprisingly tiring.  I do enjoy the odd hill (or slope!) just to alter pace, use different muscles and to push off of at the bottom.

thanks Tiny Runner for your encouraging comments, your plan sounds good, important to have the taper week, though before Manchester I kept imagining injuries that week, think it was called taper madness!

I know this has been asked before but I may be able to do this as a transfer but I could really do with knowing the time limit. There's nothing on the website apart from that its 'fast' and I'm not fast!

My brother-in-law claims he's injured so someone could take his start. Race packs arrived yesterday so not sure if still possible to transfer number. Msg me if interested.
