Congatulations on organising(overall) a good race, but who ever decided to let the camera woman crouch down in the middle of the course 50M after the start with a video camera need a big dose of common sense adding to their morning cornflakes!,
I nearly got knocked over, and I can imagine it was far worse farther down the field. It might look good on youtube to see nearly 600 runners charging at you but it could have caused serious injury.
But it was a nice course, well marshalled after the start and it really does have a sting in the tail.
Probably as hilly as Buxton based on the times I`ve run for both events but a much better run, I hate the drag from Glutton Bridge in the Buxton event. There`s a longish uphill stretch upto the top of Thorpe before the worst hill at halfway, a steepish climb from Illam upto the top of Bloore hill, its pretty fast all the way back home from there. The finish is better than Buxton, no loops through a housing estate to get the distance in, just straight through the town centre into the park.
