Am i right that only £2 from every entry goes to "the great north air ambulance"?
Yeah, that's what it says, but I think they want you to try to raise money for that charity too. I think I'll struggle with that though as I'm currently raising money for running the Great Manchester Run and I doubt people are going to want to sponsor me twice.
I think there are quite a lot of goodies at the end, i.e. medal, t-shirt, goody bag, which is where the rest of your entry fee will go.
I like the fact that even "just" £2 goes to the charity - at least it's something so that those of us who won't be raising sponsorship are still donating by participating.
Northern Lass - apparently there is a music festival going on in the area that weekend so there will be lots of peeps in tents - it may be difficult to find a quiet site! Good luck
Ahhhh, Cock Rock http://www.cockermouthrockfestival.com/
It's a 45 minute drive away from the site I'm staying at so I should be OK hopefully.
Sent my application form off yesterday! Looking forward to it.
It's a steep climb out of Cockermouth! The rest is undulating.
My mother-in-law and my wifes step dad were flooded out and are still living with my wifes brother and sister-in-law with no sign of moving back for at least 3 months.
If I can stay at a friends house just outside Aspatria I might give this one a go.
I've booked my accommodation now. I'm no longer camping as I'll be coming up on my own (I have to get THREE trains and on the way home the one from Workington to Cumbria is a replacement bus!) so I'm staying at a B&B in Workington instead. I'm pretty nervous as it will be my first 'rea' race, having only done HUGE events in the past like Race for Life and the Great Manchester 10k. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.
I'm also worried that the B&B might only do brekkie from 8.00 and I have to be at the start for 8.30. Hope they will be nice and cater for me a bit earlier. Also, not sure I'll be able to resist the full English, which probably isn't the best before a ten mile run.
The measured course is now shown on the run website see: http://www.westcumbrianrun.co.uk/.
Be aware that the new temporary bridge installed by the army at Workington is not shown on the satellite images of the course. The course shown crosses the planned location of the army bridge. This bridge is now in place and open for public use.
If you look at the start of the route the Cockermouth Leisure Centre, where registration will take place, is located off of Castlegate Drive to the east of the start location. Follow Main Street until it becomes Castlegate Drive and the first shown turning on the right leads into the Leisure Centre complex.
The website now also shows an updated Runners Information pack with revised information on registration, parking and shuttle buses.
did anybody else not recieve a t-shirt? I was told at registratation that only x-large were remaining. Informed a lady at the end of race who took my name and size so fingers crossed.
