still debating whether to do this - but edging towards "yes" - when shall I decide?!
Do it TTP - another UKNr there!!
The size of the pudding is enough to entice most (I can't stand it - but it makes a great stocking filler for the outlaws!!!)
superbly organised and a great atmosphere - even last year with horizontal sleet, heavy rain and a bit of icy wind for good measure!!!
Thanks TT! Weather conditions sound just great!
I think I will. Are you doing it? Are you local? (sorry, that's a bit League of Gentlement, isn't it...)
One of our UKNr guys kindly offered to run it with me - I think I'm going to apply online right now!
I'm Warwickshire... but used to live in Eastwood - so old stomping ground, (i.e. used to go to shipley a lot, and use the swimming pool / gym at Heanor!)
So.. as long as it's not a local race for local people.. I'll be fine ;o)
I may do it
Only down the road!
Just signed up.
My first ever race
Great, OffColour - I've signed up too!
Ran the course the other week to get a feel for it, deceptively tough me thinks! You think you have got away with it but there are two climbs near the end, the first of which is long and gradual then for good measure steepens for the last few hundred metres.
You are gonna know you have run this one for sure
I would put in your training some hill work when already fatigued
See y'all there
Does my scottish athletics membership get me affiliated entry price?
Looking forward to this one hoping for a PB which wont be too hard as ive only ran 2 other 10k races lol done loads in training tho see you all there sunday xx
Does anyone know who was taking photos near to the end - is there a link to the website anywhere?
hi, the people taking the photos were mick hall photos, just tap it in the search engine.
Any queries on times contact ian at scs results.
Chris, there you are mate.

great race really enjoyed this one, got the pb i was after and to top it all got under the hour which for me means everything, doesn't sound quick to most of you but when you think 2 years ago i would get out of breath going up stairs and was 9st heavier i think is a big acheivement. 59mins 34secs 513th woohoo xxx
Really enjoyed it despite wanting to just give up and walk on that last 200 metres.
583rd and 1:03:24 (my timing since I started at the back ) for my first 10k over (for me) a very hilly course. Definitely made me confident I can break 60 mins on the flat at Bolsover next month.
Angela, same here really, broke 50mins for first time, some would sniff at that but back in feb when i started running i weighed 4 stone heavier than now and could not run more than 5 mins at walking pace!
think what we could do on a flat course!
i'm running in the "millennium runs on" 10k on 28th december and its surposed to be a really flat course so im going for it on that one lol, will also stop me over eating at xmas having a run 3 days after
