i'm the race organiser the course is undulating it starts uphill goes into clumber park a national trust site very scenic all the race is on road and finishs down hill for last mile

I've run the race a few times and even achieved my half marathon PB there!

Nigel is right - it's very scenic; also very well organised + the finishers' t-shirt is always good quality. Good atmosphere too and always well attended.

The 'down hill for the last mile' is fun and can lead to some furious battles between clubs!

Ran it for the first time in 2000 and it's one of my favorites. A gorgeous course through Clumber Park. Entered again this year.

do you have a map of the course at all just so I can try bits out prior to the race date ??

I know there are some hills around Worksop so I want to know when to expect 'em (I lived in Worksop for 6 years)!

Cheers mate - ps was anyone on this thread at Clumber park on 29th Sept ... I enjoyed that 10k even though I found it heavy going at times !

start at bottom of Sparken Hill this is where you go up but u come back down it
through Trumens Lodge
try out Limetree Ave as you cover most of this
also the hill near the lake
and Windmill Lane
tired yet
05/10/2002 at 21:05
Oh no - the hill near the lake is not the one at 5km on the Clumber park 10k - I hated it !!
05/10/2002 at 21:06
How do I get my money back from the Worksop Half Marathon fee ??

I've changed my mind !!!!

(Joke) !!

Your t-shirts had better be good !!!
06/10/2002 at 14:30
yes it is the hill near the lake
and the t shirts are good and will have your name on the back

I've put a "pre-race preview" on my own webpage:

Please pay it a visit.

Where would 1:45ish put me - all sounds a bit serious this one!!!
08/10/2002 at 17:55
Well if you are aiming for 1:45 then you are faster than me !!!

I'd be very, very pleased with that .... if you fancy being a pacer for me give me a shout - I need pacing !

Have you done it before Richard ???

What is your usual Half Marathon time ?
09/10/2002 at 07:54
Only once - last Sunday at GNR...although once before in training - think I could have probably done faster had it not been for nuns, panto horses, fairies and 47,000 other people! Problem is I've just discovered I won't be in the country on the 27th!!!

dont worry entries to date stand at 810 not including the fun run
1hr 45 will put you in amongst some good runners last year this would have put u in the top 300 finishers
