Congrats to all involved with another successful Offy 10k!
I survived the Cat & Fiddle Down & Up Relay on Wednesday night great little event34 pairs of runners turned outat registration we were issued with a carrot to act as a batonI whizzed down the 1.6M in 12mins... but still only came 30th/34!my team-mate was 29th fastest going up (in 18 mins), so we were quite well matched, and finished 30th overall teamreally enjoyed it - unique atmosphere to it - more friendly chatting between runners than usual - hope it becomes a regular event in the calendar
Daz--Well done and good luck with Wasdale!
PPP---Thanks for the offer but i fear you will be too quick for me. I will stick with the slower runners like Eric.
Mr Simmons, Eric--7.30?!!!! FFS!!!!
PPP, 20 miles is a bit long for me, and 08:30 is a bit early too. So, assuming Alfalfa is me then I'll be giving it a miss.I will probably do about 14 mid morning if that is any good.
MWW runners - DB and I will join you in the morning, see you at 7:30.
GBM - Maybe stay off the beers tonight eh?!
Managed 8th place overall and would have won my age group had a marshall not sent me the wrong way!!!!
Swim was rubbish and came out in about 60th place, managed to make up around 30 places on the bike on what I thought was going to be flat course ended up with a rather long hill at 4 miles.
As soon as I got running though on a flat out and back course, felt pretty reasonable and made up the rest of the places.
SARQ - Well Done! always good to work your way through a field like that - just need to work on your swimming then?
if anybody remembers my list of Top Ten fave races, it has a new entry at number 1, namely:
I'd recce'd it, but running it in anger showed the route for the genius it is
just scraped the final cut-off at Great Gable, so my name will be in the results
struggling for words
SARQ - 8th place is a great result - well done! Maybe you could try a few swimming sessions down the mersey?
Daz - well done to you as well.

Well done SARQ/Daz.
Helped out Stu on leg 4 of his BGR yesterday. That guy is a machine. He clocked a 19:22hr round and looked ready to go round again when he finished. I knew I was out of my depth when he got to the top of Yewbarrow in just over 40mins. I took a short cut up through Black Sail Pass & he caught me up on the climb to Kirk Fell, I managed to keep pace with him until Brandreth but he was pulling away into Honister. He'd also dropped another of his pacer along the way but still had another guy in tow.
Little Seagull looked good on Sat. He needs to get down more often and try & keep pace with young Katy. I think she's a little older but is managing 20mins for the course.
Well done DAZ. I think you enjoyed that me thinks.For some reason 2 extra people have appeared in the official results, so I've been demoted to 10th!!!
Still, my swim was 2 mins quicker than last year and my run 26 secs quicker.
this guy's blog gives a good flavour of Wasdale: http://www.justusuk.com/2011/07/wasdale-horseshoe-fell-race-09-july.html
TST - Have you plugged the Coombs Tor race yet?either I've been ignoring you, or you're slacking!
Thinking I might do Sale Sizzler on Thursdaycan anybody who did it recently tell me if they've changed the route again, or whether it's still the same as this: http://www.runningahead.com/maps/2e675ad58ef7467e8609444f7c3b541f?unit=km
DAZ - sizzler map looks like the one I ran the other week, might do it myself.Coombs race is not one I am aware of, sorry enough to already, when and where please
Oh yes I remember now, Sarah Bull is doing this one. Should be good, everyone turn up and support the family who employ Isaac's Daisy as a babysitter. Profits going to New Mills school.
Daz - is that enough, starts at little mill rowarth, Imagine MH, WITGB, Isaac and twad might turn up, but you know how this lot like to keep their shoes clean and run on tarmac.
