is the postal closing date of 5th Jan right?
it was May last year. if so i guess i missed the boat. mind not helped that i kept looking on the event website for it, which just has not been updated at all since last years pics were put on.
Just go for it Bats. Can't see them rejecting a postal entry unless it's full.
It was good last year as we went up for 3 days, & we spent the Sat at the Pleasure Beach.
It's one for all abilities too. Think I beat something like 522 people! Good atmosphere with a live radio show & commentary.
Have you actually done any running in the past month!!?? When are you next going to Heaton? I'm getting drawn to the Woodbank park one too. Nice to have a change.
i will, be the end of the month though.
zero running for almost 4 weeks. kiddywinks over xmas now the snow not happy lol.
not sure when back at heaton. hopefully in 2 weeks time
they finally updated the website and sorted the postal closing date.
got my entry in now
done this race twice and to me it is the best race in Blackpool
bats good luck
I am doing Leeds half that day
I've just decided to do this. What are the conditions/benefits of entering as a team? So you can see how well you do on average compared with other teams and see where you are in the finishing positions?
Also it says normal entries are £9.50 but online entry is £11?
Hi Alex. runnersworld add on a cut for themselves (in most cases its £1.50).
i think what the organisers have done though is make it so its £11 overall through here by taking the hit themselves and keeping it £11 for post enteries so everyone pays the same.
7 weeks to go, this will be my 10th Blackpool 10k!! PB I hope
Anyone know of any good 5k's between now and then???
Have done the illuminations 10k before - is this the same route??
Good luck all of you 10kers. We coasters will pass you just before the start on our way North from the tower -give us a cheer and we will cheer and applaud back.
Have a good one
its been a while since i did one of his races, and to be honest im not bothered if i never do another one.
now have car so im not reliant upon getting to local places like blackpool too much anymore.
I'm just getting my entry in. Might enter on the day actually. Don't think it's full.....??
Be sure to stay & watch everyone finish, as last year there were all kinds of people running, & they need your support! Like the Down's Syndrome kids who were chuffed to bits to get a medal.
It's the only race that bimblers like me can beat hundreds of people!!
Off to the Pleasure Beach afterwards......yee ha.....
