I've posted my form off to the organisers I was just wondering when I will find out if I'm in the race.

Should be Halifax road not Halifax!!!!!!!!!!

Could anyone let me know just how hilly this course is. I have done the Guy Fawkes 10 in November in Ripley which has some big hills in it. Is this course much hillier or about the same?

The course is hilly but not till 5 miles does it get extreme!!
The course starts in Robertown with a steady 1.2 miles before you hit the run up Halifax road hill for 1 mile this aint too bad just a steady incline.Then it's 4 miles of flat with a really big run down hill to Brighouse.The hill from hell then comes along which is tedious but not too bad(honest!)Clifton Village is next for around a mile before 1.5 miles on Walton Lane steady incline nought much really.Another 0.7 miles along Halifax road flat which is easy then 1.7 miles ish continous hill upto Hartshead to the finish the worst part is after the ford at Brighouse which is the hill but I've ran 11 miles of the course today and my fears have all gone if you put in 3 miles of good hill work during trainng then it won't be a problem.

Thanks for the advice David. Still trying to make a final decision about entering.

Go for it this will be my first ever race it's suppossed to be good and have a good atmosphere I live in Liversedge and the views are superb whilst running.The marshalls all support you well and is actually used by the more competative runners for a warm up for the Flora.According to the Spen Guardian there are 200 places left.

hi Dave

Just been for 6 miles at lunchtime, around Regents Park...almost got blown into the zoo!!

The race is now full

Think we are seriously going to have to look to increase our race limit next year. The number of people still wanting to enter is unbelievable. Anyway on a serious note, if any of you forumites know of anyone who has entered and is unable to run, would someone please try and let me know, and just maybe we may be able to get a few more in that want to run.

Hi fellow runners. I am running this race and like David, it is my first ever!

May sound a strange question, however are there any particular expectations with regards to dress attire? I would normally run with a waterproof and long pants in the winter, hat, gloves etc! Just wondering if this would be frowned upon as not being appropriate for a formal race (although I am participating for the sheer love of it).

Hope you can help

You just wear what you want to wear, If it's cold wrap up like you normally do. There are always those who will run in vest and shorts, but that is their choice. All we as organisers want to see is a happy smile when you cross the finishing line, and your Race number pinned firmly to the FRONT of whatever you are wearing so the markers can take your number easily.

Excellent and many thanks for your prompt reply! Answers my question.

Thanks again and looking forward to having a great day.

Gareth parts of the course can be windswept especially around Clifyon (walton Lane) and Windybank.I run this area now for the build up and you def need hat and a good windproof jacket I wouldn't run in just vest not in Feb.Hope you enjoy the run it's a great route and the views are brilliant.

Any chance of me getting in the race at the last minute? Ran last year but only just got back in England after overseas tour.

Sorry Scotty, the race is totally full, with an ever increasing list of people who want to run.
28/01/2007 at 14:36
Thanks for the advice David. Living in Southowram I know all about wind...and hills!

Just heard that Kirklees Council, in their wisdom have decided to dig up all the roads around Roberttown, so beware that you may have trouble getting into Roberttown. Maybe allow a few more minutes for your journey as one of our major Car Parks is on one of the roads that they are closing. It may be a bit of a free for all with the parking as the big field we use at the side of the school is also well waterlogged at the moment. We will obviously try and accommodate everyone, but PLEASE be patient if directed a little further away than you would like. If all else fails, try and park in the estate just off Roberttown Lane (down Meadow Lane). These things are sent to try us, but it wouldn't be the Liversedge Half without roadworks.

I've entered this race and unfortunately have had to pull out due to other committments - if anyone out there fancies doing this run it may be possible to transfer my number to a new name.
