Hi All,

 I ran much of the trail last year and thought then it would be ideal for a longer dustance race.

Thinking of entering - anyone else?

Hi Ian,

I'm running it with my partner and both of my parents. First half marathon for my partner and I so we are a little nervous but apparently it's downhill all the way! (the reason why we chose this one)

Does anyone know whether this route is downhill all of the way? I am slightly confused by the description.  Would this by a potential PB course?

Thanks Steve

I want to do this! Is there a time limit for completion?

email the organiser and ask.

I wouldn't think there are time limits but you never know.

Nobody wants to be stood around waiting for 4 hours because the last person is walking (Mansfield Half 2002 I think)

Is this the old White Peak Half Marathon?

Signed up to do this now. No time limit - I'm not walking, so hope I won't take 4 hrs plus!!! Especially downhill.

Hi, I was supposed to be running this event but I have broken my ankle this week can I offer anyone my place or get any sort of refund? Absolutely gutted.

Gemma, I had hoped to enter this one but see that it is full.  If you cannot get a refund let me know and I could take your place (paid of course).  Sorry to hear about your ankle.  Hope you will be mended soon.

Hi Kate,

I have sent you a message if you are still interested.

Trail shoes for this one?


17/09/2012 at 21:14

Has anyone had any info about it?  Like a start location and time? 

It's my first half so I'm not too sure what to expect but I'm looking forward to it. 

I spent a couple of days pootling up and down the track as a ranger during the foot and mouth outbreak when it was one of the only bits of the national park open!

They said the packs will be sent out a couple of weeks before. I'm looking forward to this one!
Erzulie - I'll decide about shoes when I've seen the pack.

I'd rather wear my old faithfuls! The course is just grass I think, so if it's wet, trails, if not usuals.

Erzulie, I imagine gravel trails most of the way if memory serves.....

Thanks Ian. Getting scared now - feel like I haven't done enough! Oh well - it's too late now, just have to get stuck in.
