Be interested to see how they run the 52 miler - if it's a mass start then it might be interesting because effectively it's a race - but if there's going to be hundreds doing it you'd want to start in the front 50 to avoid the inevitable carnage.

Doing a sportive in Lancs the day before but might be up for this too - but the website is a bit short on details. If it's a staggered start with small groups going off probably give it a miss.

Doesnt look like much for the inbetween category. You can either go a short distance (26) slow or the longer 52 miles at a lactic acid building 18 mph+

I know you'd maintain a better speed in a pack through drafting etc but they dont seem to have got this right in my book.

18mph is a Sunday club run.

Cut off's This explains it. Finish it in 3h 15 or you're booted over the mancy way by an armed marshall.

 Sounds like a giggle.

popsider:  I know it does specify on the site that this is for club riders and personally I could complete it in the allocated time but I think the gulf between the two distances is quite vast.

I need to check my rota in work but it's a potential for me.
