I'm running this for the first time, I've not raced in Yorkshire since I ran the Barnsley 6 about 6 years ago. After a year (seems like ) but was injured in October- this is my comeback race and really looking forward to it - dream is 1:49:59 , before I lace Chester the following week to 2:29:59????????????
Mark R I did Manchester this year not as scenic as Edinburgh obvioussly , similar in that it goes away from city and back - well not city but United. I enjoyed running with 4hr pacer til 17 then couldn't ???? but was 30 min better than EMF & less than 2 mins away from pb . Support good in outer towns Sale etc and spectators could get tram but v crowded. Finish outside MUFC seems like a mirage - ie in last 2-3 miles never seemed to arrive .
Rodeo flip - I paced Liverpool to 5hr last year great fun - a few sights - football grounds Parks waterfront - there's something like a 3 mile or so flat straightish run in to finish north along the Mersey. I'd go back if wasn't oothwise occupied that w/e
I managed a sub 8min miling local 4.5mile path n trail race on Thursday as my EMF recovery run - a good blast???? need some summer activity/ marathons before Amsterdam in October
Happy running everyone
