Wow I can't believe there are still events out there charging less than a tenner entry!! And £2.50 is simply unbelievable value!!!! How could I say no to that
Any other runners doing the 30 miler? I can't wait... Looking forward too, to a bit of old fashioned navigation
I did this last year. It's a good event to blow out the Christmas cobwebs. I'm in again.
Posted my cheque off today. I have fancied doing a LDWA event for a while. How is the navigation? Anything to worry about?
This is one of my favourite events. If you are wibbling just do it... beautiful scenery, lots of mud and hills, the routes are easy to follow and you get tea and coffee on the way round.
I'll be there, probably doing the 20 unless I can get my backside into gear...
Its an LDWA event, they're always good value compared to the running clubs. I help run the West Lancs events and it'll be about £7 for a 20+ mile route with food and drink at most checkpoints, pie & peas at the end and a certificate
Makes you wonder how a running club can charge £12 for a half marathon and all you get is a couple of cups of water!
I've just seen this and will probably do the 20 miler. Have done my first race today (Half marathon) and enjoyed it so much that I'm really fired up now to do more and over longer distances in preparation to attempt my first Marathon in April (Brighton).
Sounds like fun and fab value for money. It's the day before I go on holiday for 2 weeks so will have plenty of time to recover.
Yep I'll be along for the 30 as part of my final MdS training. Not sure january in Surrey will quite mimic April in Morocco but hey it all helps!
I will be doing this for the umpteenth time.
Car Park is free on Sundays and/or train station is only a couple of hunded yards away. Check points with water and squash, tea normally at the last cheque point with biscuits. Turn up and go start so no hanging around.
Different route every year. Directions given and if followed carefully no map is normally required. Absolutely no signs/marshals so a map may be a handy back-up.
The entry fee is between £2 and £5 for LDWA members at the cheapest end to £5 on the day. Provides awesome value. They post a certificate out later and manage to donate a couple of hundred quid to charity as well.
An excellent event put on for very little money - no energy gels, no sponsorship, no t-shirts, no mugs, medals or junk.
You also have to big up the organiser and those friendly and supportive folk at the check points....thanks peeps...see you again this year
