I'm a bit confused about the hill apspect! My friend, who is from Sheffield, has told me it will be hilly. However, in the event info it says the course is flat...
Great to see you're all excited about this event!
So, to resolve the flat/hilly question, it's Sheffield-flat, i.e. pretty HILLY! Beautiful course, loads of runners, lots of elites and loads of FUN!
Have a great day on Sunday!
Enter on day ok? And is there any of the course on the grass? How many entered so far?
Hi ET - Enter on the day is fine,
Hi ET - Enter on the day is fine, less than 100m on grass, 800 registered so far, more on the day... Have a good one!
Thanks for clarifying the hill issue! I live in Manchester so anything in comparsion will be hilly. Looking forward to it.
Come on, Emma!
How did you all find this race-very well orginised I thought and a nice course- although hard to pace as quite hilly.
My garmin was playing up (i think) it recorded a distance of 6.09 miles quite short-when I looked at the route mapping it seems to have missed a section of the course.
I am hoping the course was a true 10k as I was pleased with my time and dont want to think it could be 40 secs short- Any one have a gps measure closer to the 10k mark?
I liked it but it was tough. Garmins are rarely properly accurate. Trees and weather! Best walk the course with a measuring wheel thing to check it. It`s never a PB course so just take the time you were given. I reckon it was about right.
I think they got lucky with the weather; if it hadn`t frozen all that `less than a 100m on grass` would`ve been a `mare!
Any pics anywhere?
Overall a really well organised race and a great location. Events team very enthusiastic and helpful. Word of advice to the Events Team - and to anyone looking to do this next year - it is very hilly - the first hill is short but brutal!! - don't describe this as "flat". I struggled to get any rythm in my running and ended up way outside my best road time. Also, as mentioned above - it's a bit more than 100m on grass!. It's not a pb course by any stretch - add at least a couple of minutes on to your road time and use it as a hard training run. Running Eye - I also got 6.09 mile on my Garmin.
