Who fancies this then? We'll try and book the glorious weather we always do get for you all again!
Any one know if this is totally off-road and/or the location of a map?
I presume there is a significant amount of forestry roads/paths and will probably do it if so, as I have a bit of an aversion to tarmac! Would also like to do a recce prior to the race.
The race is totally off road, on forest tracks and trails. Hilly, with beautiful scenery.
this is maybe the hardest half marathon i've ever done, it made me want to cry. and fall over. but im back for round 2
I'm afraid not Runner 33, the nearest showers and pool would be the Glades Leisure Centre 3 miles away in Kidderminster.
This is my first half marathon am i mad?
Stacey - of course you are! but I am sure you will love it - off road is much nicer than tarmac!
I haven't entered yet - if there are organisers lurking on this thread - are there likely to be places on the day?
Hope to see you on Sunday Craig.

Ran the course last night . It's very dry on route and I wore my Salomon trail shoes which where fine although so would regular road shoes. We will have 3 drinks stations on the course , but carrying extra is not a bad idea.
See you all tomorrow
I'm looking forward to this in a sort of "I must be mad to be running this"type of way..... I've run about 20 Half Marathons in the last 3 years and fear this will be the hardest? My PB is 1:37 but I expect to run this in over 2 hours. Does that sound about "par" for the Course guys?!
I`m also excited but a little nervous about this course, its only my second half marathon, the first of which was quite flat.
I can`t wait!! see you all tomorrow...
good luck to everyone.
great run! hard.
couple of questions:
does anyone know if the guy who fell over at the start is ok? i felt so sorry for him
who is the photographer on the half way mark? i`d like to see his pics.
