Hi Trevor Youve run the course how much is off road and do you need road shoes?Are you not getting many entries then?
Thanks Liz.Im in need of a new hip so off road suits me best and soft(wet)!
What would you say there is more of on or off road?
Hi folks. Sorry fo the delayed response, I've been away running the Istanbul Marathon and just got back. About 5 miles is on road, the remainder is farm track. The majority of the track is fairly hard dirt track, with about half amile of grass track which can be quite soft when wet. I would recommend road shoes for this event. Trail shoes would be okay but wouldn't be an advantage. I hope that helps.
Hi AdminLiz. Below is the a link for the Thurlow 10 race route. I'ld forgotten all about that other route that you mentioned, which I inadvertently called by the same name (I'll see if I can rename it).
Pre-entries are going OK, almost 70 entered now and hoping for a similar number of entries on the day. Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday. I wish I was running it too
The weatherman has been kind to us and has forecast great weather for the weekend. Yay!
Great race. Thanks to all the Haverhill RC for their marshalling and pre and post race support. Good challenging course which has boosted my hopes for a PB at Stebbing. I will be recommending this one for Saffron Striders championship races next year
