Thanks to those who have responded early to run for our charity HelpforHeroes in October and especially to a Preston double glazing businessman who is sponsoring 4 of his employees to take part. It is also nice to see  three local club runners from Preston supporting our Heroes. Looks like Paris 2013 is going to have quite a contingent from the North West, keep it going and thank you.




Welcome back to the Message Board.


Congratulations on a superb offer to those promising to raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship for Help For Heroes by running the Guild marathon. Garmins, trips to Paris - very generous. Will the money raised be in addition to the £150,000 you are raising for Help For Heroes by running from Land’s End to John O’Groats in “late March or early April 2012”  (Gazette article, 1st September 2011)?


When you do Rons Challenge, in “late March or early April 2012”, is there anywhere within reasonable travelling distance where we will be able to come and support you when you pass through? I can’t find details on the Rons Challenge website. Come to think of it I can’t find the website anymore. How is preparation for the run coming along? Still putting in alternate weeks of 130 and 65 miles or have you upped it?

Trimpell 20

If I could just quote from the entry form:

“Trimpell 20 – The Pre-London Road Race”.


Why then is the organiser applying for a Trail Running permit/licence?

Is it a road race or a trail race?

 Before you go can you just remind us of the UK:A Licence number for the race?

It would make more sense to send them to the Power of 10 website as that is where results of races with a UK:A licence are usually listed.


By the way, will you be sending results from your Boxing Day 10k in Leyland? After all you did advertise it as having a UK:A licence although you still have to reveal what the licence number was.

I haven't been on these forums for ages but it's nice to see some things haven't changed and Soup still has an unhealthy obsession with stirring things! He probably thinks Alan and Ron McAndrew are one and the same person



That’s a bit harsh; of course I know that they are different people!

Its ok saying all these thing on a forum about other peoples efforts to put races on so people can run if they want. YOU want to try it sometime as you seem to know a lot about the rules and regs of putting a race together so step up to the plate I for one will enter. So put up or shut up or just hide behind your runners world name at least myself and steve come on here as ourself  so if you wish to see all the number come and have a look on sunday all the best Alan Taylor Co-organiser of the Inskip Half Marathon.



How satisfying to hear Stephen’s somewhat illogical old views recycled using your own unique grammatical style. For the record my right to comment on this or any other message board without necessarily being a race organiser is called freedom of speech. As for hiding behind a runners world name is concerned then, as far as I can see, that is a widespread practise on this board. Furthermore, it seems to be the chosen method for several people who have supported you on this thread. Presumably you disapprove of them too. Is there also an element of hypocrisy here given that you post on your club’s message board under a name other than Alan Taylor?


Any road up, let’s get back to the point. What about some answers to my questions? What is the UK:A license number for the Inskip race? What is your affiliated member number? Am I right to presume that you have obtained one and haven’t been tempted to use one belonging to anyone else?


When you see Stephen can you remind him that he still not has told us what the license number was that he claimed he had for the Boxing day 10k in Leyland? Or whether he used the Red Rose course as measured in February 2011 by Brian.




For the time being I think we should keep our relationship as it stands. Rest assured though that I will continue to post on this board whenever I think that anyone is taking liberties when organising races.

That’s very good news. I am pleased for all those taking part.


What is the license number for the race and your UK:A Affiliation number by the way?


What a pity we don’t know what the license number was for Shoestring Results’ Boxing Day 10k in Leyland. Or why they used Fylde Coast Running’s UK:A Affiliation number. And if the course was measured and certified? And if so when and by whom?

You might be right about the Boxing Day 10k in Leyland having a UK Athletics license. One thing that casts it into doubt is that Power of 10 have not listed the athletes' performances. That is usually an indication that there was no license.

 All I am asking is that Stephen, as the organiser, lets us know the license number if  there was one. I am not aware that he has bothered with them for his other events. 

It is interesting that he used a Fylde Coast Running template for his entry form and included their "UK:A Affiliation Number" (whatever that means) on his form.

Hi Soup I see you have not lost any of your charm! Please come along to a race and say hello! Would be nice to see an old friend Momento (because you notice!)



Highly amusing as usual but you have failed to answer my questions. Your entry form for the Boxing Day 10k in Leyland claimed that there would be a UK Athletics license. Was there one or wasn’t there one? If there was one, what was the number?


Did you use Red Rose Runners’ course – the one they paid Brian Porter to measure in February 2011 – or one of your own? If it was your own, then who measured it and when?


Come on, Stephen, I’ve taught you how to spell memento. The least you can do is answer my questions!
