Just had e-mail through from the organisers regarding

1) Change of entry point into Tatton Park on race day

2) Slight amendments to the race route itself

Anyone know where the race route is held online other than the official race site (which appears to still hold the old route)

Would just be interested to have a quick "virtual jog" through it prior to the weekend

If you paste the below into your browser you will see the new route which was officially measured yesterday. The Start has only moved a few metres. The route outside the park is the same. We have had to change the location of the finish which has meant I've had to introduce a short dog-leg section around 3 miles to get the correct distance, but it will be well marshalled and coned so should be ok.

Hi

Appreciate this is last minute but only just realised that I hadn't actually paid the entry fee for this despite registering! Doh

Does anyone have a place/number that they are not intending to use, it would be so so so appreciated. I will of course reimburse you for the cost of you place

Please call me on 07739844876

Many thanks in advance

Stephen

I have not received an e mail about any changes. Please could someone put it on the forum esp the bit about entering the park. Thank you

By now you will have received your race envelope containing your race number (including chip timer) and race information.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, there have been a couple of changes made since the race information booklet was posted to you.

 Competitors are now asked to access Tatton Park via the Mere Lodge Gate, which is located at the junction of Ashley Road and Mereside Road (Use WA16 6SQ for SatNavs)

The location and approach to the finish has also slightly changed.  This means that in order to maintain the correct race distance a short 'out and back' section has been added to the course around the three mile mark.

First half marathon for me tomorrow...... Looking forward to it, but also a little nervous. Only been up to 11 miles so far, but that was three weeks ago. Oh well, I'll not worry. Been up to look at  Ashley on the bike yesterday, looks like it should be a lovely course through beautiful countryside, so if I have to walk.........See you all there...

Good luck everyone, not long now and I think the sun will shine

Looks like there might be a bit of frost tonight - does anyone know what the paths/roads are like in and around the park and whether there might be any problems?

Most of the route is along tarmacced roads and the bit that is inside the park itself is on paved tracks I think.  It will be a cold start though have a good race everyone!

have a great race everyone. i will be there to cheer you all on. the whole race is on surfaced roads or tracks. a few in the park are a little rough especially the short out and back section in the middle of the park, oh and its on a slight hill aswell.

yipee! Pleased with my PB of 2hrs21mins. What a cold start but the sun came out Great support esp those marshalls near the end (one even ran with me for a while) and the organisation was good.Thank you to my hubby and daughter for their encouragement and for just being there. Love my medal, shirt and chunky kitkat. How did everyone else get on?
