As others have said, great organisation and brilliant effort from the marshalls. thanks a lot Phil. Really enjoyed it, esp brill scenery. I'm a Manc lad so live quite near to Bolton; I've not done much running around the course area but will defo be going up there again to do some runs in the future.
Track up to top of Winter Hill. I ran around most of the course today, mostly okay underfoot - if you don't get a bit muddy, you're not doing it right . Let's hope the weather is like today on race day. Perfect conditions.
Hi Phil, I'm I was wondering if there are any recommended spectator spots along the route? I don't know the area very well, but looking at the map, there seems to be a road nearish the White Coppice loop. Could spectators see runners going one way then the other? They'd also have chance to see the start, drive there, see me hobble pass, and get the finish line (long before!) I get there. Any thoughts?
Like I say, I don't really know the area, but I live in Manc so thinking about a few training runs there in the near future.
