I have entered this race, as I like to do new events, but I am finding it difficult to get any info. There is no website as such. Two emails to the person whose name appears as contact have failed to elicit a reply and I get only a recorded message on that person's mobile. I know there is quite a time yet to go but I like to get accommodation fixed up well in advance that is close to the Start /Finish but even that information is unavailable. I don't know Lancaster so have no idea whether suitable accommodation is plentiful.
Has anyone else entered this one? Can they help me?
Well HRR did it again. They have set a high standard but still seem capable of producing something even better than the previous year. This year''s goodie bag was superb. I prefer the sunshine to yesterday's cool weather but I guess I'm out on my own on that one - and it's not something over which HRR has much control.
Thanks to the marshalls and water station operatives for your efficiency and cheery encouragement. Special thanks to my own clubmates from Witham Running CLub who manned the 6/18 mile stop. I understand one or two runners benefited from their picnic goodies. I'm not sure whether a sausage roll got them round faster but I'm sure that those who did have one enjoyed it!
I dipped in under 5 hours so did as well as I expected. It's a pity there was no happy ending to a perfect day but well done Chelsea. The Reds will be back again next year.... as I will be back at Halstead D.V.
