Carter, seen your run on strava. Ha ha ha. Hillsborough to deepcar flat. Ha ha. Ok its only a 250ft climb but its a gradual continous up slog to deepcar but you drop 50ft back down at warncliffe side then start climbing again. You took the easy way up to green moor. Going up underbank lane which you ran down or the shorter steeper Pea royd lane is my usual hill work. Good running though.
Cheers Ron. Decided to give Blackpool another go next year. will be signing up in the new year.
Nice race that went wrong for me from the day before compounded by needing the toilet at mile 17-19 and the idiotic marahall playing football at mile 22 running in front of me and forcing me to stop suddenly. Police forcing you to reopen road back to football ground didn't help either. was a disappointing 3:06 for me
I did it this year too. Route didn't bother me but poor organisation did. Started late under a cold stand, no on course loo's which when enquired after was told I could have popped into one of the arcades (yeah right. Running around asking "where are your toilets? ") marshals less than enthusiastic and one playing football at mile 22.
