Ah Mr Boycs, we've been expecting you! I did wonder if this thread would ever get off the ground but you were certainly one of the chief suspects to start it off. Another year, another GCR - I should at least make the start this year. Honestly cannot remember how many times I've run this but the first few were Brampton to Carlisle. I've also done Rickerby Park to Sheepmount, Sheepmount to Sheepmount, the Tennis Courts to Sheepmount (must have been after the floods in 2005) and the Castle to Sheepmount. Never did the Racecourse but I think I've done all the other courses. I agree about the chip. No problem running without but definitely worth picking it up if you can. One word of advice for any visitors to Carlisle- use one of the nearby car parks but make sure you pay and display. GCR day is party time for local traffic wardens.
