Cross Bay Challenge 2014 13.1(approx)

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 22:13

Just got back from sunny Morecambe.  Great event but pretty tough especially with the heat and the wind plus wasn't in the best of shape.  Noticed from the results that almost a quarter of the starters didn't finish which says something I guess. Still if you want to imagine what running across the Sahara might look like this is the event for you.

All I know about it is that Steve Ovett turned up on the day at the 1st ever running of it and won it.

Half marathon recommendations February or March 2015?

I haven't run Cambridge but I know the area well and would say it would definitely be flat.  Out of the ones I've run Wokingham is the flattest and is very popular for PBs.

As well as MK, Watford, Marlow and Reading I've also run Wokingham and Berkhamsted and they are both good.  Not run them yet but you also have Cambridge, Warwick and Fleet.

Thanks for the tips Ed, only just started running again this week after a chest infection from the Liverpool marathon so very much looking forward to something a bit different.

Anyone signed up for this one or done it previously? 

From what I've read you appear to get pretty wet so just wondering what people are looking to run in?

Liverpool Rock n Roll Marathon anyone?

I couldn't have been too far away from you Lowrez.  I failed to start my watch properly at the start but I think I was around the 3:50 mark. 

I started well enough and was on for around 3:30 but my lack of long runs due to illness took its toll by mile 22 and last 4 miles were really tough.  I was struggling with signs of cramp in both legs and was really concerned something was going to pop but thankfully got through it hurting but unscathed.  I definitely wasn't the only one suffering in the heat, a girl who finished right in front of me collapsed on the line.

I enjoyed the course although agree that the music was very disappointing.  Far too many dj's for my liking, one right near the finish was just playing with his phone and didn't seem at all interested in supporting runners. 

I was in a group that almost went the wrong way on the flyover at mile 10.  As you say a marshall should have been there.  A police motor cyclist came flying down the road telling us to head the WRONG way, thankfully a few in the group knew better and we ignored him after the initial pandemonium.  I had visions of ending up at the half marathon finish but thankfully not.  Must say that it does give some ammunition to the anti earphone brigade as one of the guys in front of me wearing them didn't hear us and just carried on the wrong way. Not sure we're talking about the same flyover Cougie as it didn't look possible to me to hop the wall and we had to double back.

Yes there is certainly a lot of room for improvement but all in all for a first event I think it was pretty good and has real potential if they sort out the few marshalling issues and improve the music.
