A place to discuss running in Lancashire
Wow. Very good running sjpc14 that's a very good time.paul did you run through the city at Chester? Think I'm going to do Chester marathon. Just not sure I'd like running most of it out in the sticks lol.had a good 7 mile run tonite from ossy over to range then Round canal back to ossy,
Yeah it's s bit of both city and sticks, in the full it takes in some of Wales also and country lanes , I'm thinking of going for it, it's meant to be a good course.
Thanks guys and dont worry about a marathon taking in the sticks Rick, quite a few of them do,
I had a day off running, yesterday to give my body a bit of rest after Sunday, Altough i did still walk to work. Will return tonight, with perhaps a nice four. Ive got the Freakleton HM in four weeks, thinking of doing 14 16 14 12, as my long runs.
Looking for nice races for late July and August. Any recommendations? Is Elswick Express a quick / PB course. I`m due to beat my 10 mile PB! And Windmill HM?
The Cuerden Valley Badger 10k in August is a good one, off road, friendly and challenging.
Ive done the Windmill HM, it is pretty flat, but its on the cost, so you have to deal with strong winds.
Try the Ukresults website, plenty of races are listed on there.
That was a painful 4 mile, but worth it im sure. Hope everyones had a good run out tonight.
After last Sundays race I've decided to rest this week, will be out at weekend.
Thats good thinking Paul, after doing a marathon i tend to also have a full week off.
Thanks SJ. I did the St Anne`s a couple of times so I guess it`s a very similar course. I know UKResults; was just looking for advice on good ones for this Summer.
Hi Egyptian Toe
After a winter of targeting 10 mile and half races decided to utilise the fitness and have a bash at a few more shorter races over psring/summer (don't usually race much if at all over spring/summer). Probably won't make all of them put the race plan I have gleaned based on quick courses and hard training route (Badger 10k) is:
Tuesday 28th May 7pm - Welcome Inn 5k
Saturday 1st June 6:30pm - Catforth 5k
Thursday 6th June 7:30pm - Badger 10k
Tuesday 25th June 7pm - Welcome Inn 5k
Thursday 4th July 7:30pm - Badger 10k
Sunday 7th July 10am - Catforth 10k
Saturday 20th July 10:30am - Elswick Express 10m
Tuesday 30th July 7pm - Welcome Inn 5k
Thursday 1st August 7:30pm - Badger 10k
Saturday 17th August 6:30pm - Catforth 5k
If my memory is correct you pop across to relatives in Penowrtham so the Saturday nights races might be a good a good fit.
The badger race is a good one, as you cant fit in on a Thursday night and still get your long Sunday run in. I might give one of those welcome tavern 5k runs a go. Ive not done a proper 5k race for a few years. Does any one know what route they use ? I imagine they use the tram road.
How come you dont race much in Summer Max ?
sj think you live near southport. whats southport half marathon like?
Thanks Maxpower. That list is useful. Didn`t notice that there were a few evening races at Catforth. Quick course too. Only ever done 2 x 5k`s but that (annoyingly) seems to be my best distance. Might look at them, plus Elswick. Hoping to do a marathon 0n June 23rd so a few weeks after that would suit . . .
I live in Walton-le-dale rick and ive not doe that one sorry.
Whats everyone's running plans this weekend ? I skipped ParkRun Ive one or two twinges after the 10k race last Sunday, so decided a rest of fast running was in order. Out doing 14 miles tomorrow morning mind.
I've rested for a week since last Sundays half at Chester, back on the road tomorrow. I'm thinking of running the sport in the port 10k in Ellesmere Port on Father's Day, should be fun.
So how did you get on Paul and everyone else. I did a 14 mile, but found it tough going. I think i through in too many hills!!
But saying that im pleased to have done it, as in the long run it can only do me good i guess........
