I came in at just over 1hr 46mins and am absolutely delighted....4 min PB and after the wheels seemed to come off at 4 miles, I'm really, really chuffed with how it ended up! Great event and well organised.....even down to the weather!
No race pack here yet, but I think I got your cold Eberkneesaregood.....my training only started again yesterday after a week off due to lurgy. I'm still going to try to up my pace & distance ahead of the race, but after a bit of a set back I'm just hoping for nice conditions to enjoy the run.
Don't think race packs are being sent out until next week, but I think bigwave has. The right idea about parking....I'm lucky enough to have my wife drop me off at the start, then she is off to the finish to spend my money at Ashbourne before I get there! As for training......I've just helped to train & pace my wife to her 1st HM at the GNR & now have two weeks to pick up my own 'Race Pace' if I'm going to trouble my PB.
The word has been spreading already and hopefully there will be a couple of new entries from round here for next year. Personally, my legs have been wrecked since 8 miles in on Sunday, but after a 5k recovery run tonight I've now entered the Buxton Tri....I really hope theres a bit of cloud cover for that!
