Will be gracing this one too. I train on the roads all around there so looking forward to it. Doing the not so exciting Dewsbury 10k week before too.

Both I would expect are weather permitting. I think the 10k was postponed for a month last year.

As a Town fan I will still be cheering you on but dont tell everyone

Hope you won't be drinking the 2 steins that are on your profile pic before the race or you can kiss a PB goodbye..

Ha Simon those were the days!! That's about 6 years ago I think in Barcelona. I couldn't drink one of them now.

Going to run the route in the morning as part of London training plan.

Hoping the weather holds out for Sunday - forecast is sleet at the moment!

I'm giving it a go should be fun looks like heavy snow
Never run it before so is it as hilly as they say ?

Bradders yes it is a hilly bugger. I ran it as a recci couple of Sundays ago and it certainly tests you. Theres a beaut of a hill at 8.5 mile called Walton Road. It just goes on forever and you can see the top all the way up but it never seems to arrive. When I did it a couple of weeks ago the rain was coming at me sidewards with a hint of hail in it and there is absolutely no shelter at this point. It was ace 

BBC weather is looking like sleet light snow so hopefully will be ok underfoot. If you dont know the area it is high and open so can be windy too so I would recommend not forgeting the hat and gloves!!

 

Its a well organised event and I'm sure we will all have a great time as on most races we do.

Good luck everyone and enjoy

Website says event may be cancelled if the weather is bad and there will be no refunds

I live not far from the course and ran it as a training run last Sunday.  Living round here it is no worse than a normal training run i don't think.  If you are running it for the first time I wouldn't be too bothered if your first mile was a tad fast.  At mile 3 there is a nice long downhill section that could ruin your race if you take it a too fast.  It's then basically steady up hill from mile 7 ish to mile 10, some bits steeper than others.  At 10 miles if you still have a push in your legs then my advice would be to go for it.  As Keggi says, for the most part you are really exposed so I'd make the best use of the wind whilst its behind you and try to stay in someones shadow when you going into the wind.

Good luck all.

Hope the snow stays away as much as possible. If there is any snow are they likely to cancel? More worried about the downhills than the uphills. It's steep going down bailiff bridge!!!

Website has been updated and says:

"Forecast is now for snow later on in the afternoon, and maybe to the South of Roberttown, so we should be OK. If the weather is unkind to us and we do have to cancel, we will put a message on here as soon as possible"

Keep your fingers crossed everyone. Although if it is still on it will be a cooooold one

I like the fact that they keep updating the website as the forecast changes.

It like a challenge :0)
09/02/2013 at 18:29

Looking forward to it too.  Hoping for "sleet" not snow.  It's my first HM and I've picked a hilly one!! 

09/02/2013 at 22:30

09/02/2013 at 22:31

I dont know how but I actually smashed 5 minutes off my pb!!
