The route changed last year and started from Salt Eyre Leisure Centre in Lancaster.
Some of the course would have been the same but it did not start from the Trimpell Club in Morcambe.

Yeah I've got the old and the new course on GPX file, let me know if anyone wants it, it's also bob on accurate as well as they finish on the track and can measure the required make up distance which is nice.
No worries Pug, just did not want anyone going to the wrong start.
Last year one guy did go to the old start!
I'm not running this my OH is but I will be helping at the end.
It will be my first 20, training for the London Marathon, my first marathon, hoping for 3 hours at Trimpell, if you can post a link to the course that would be great, thanks
How did everyone get on today? I didn't run it due to coming back from an injury but I helped marshall it, which I really enjoyed despite the fact my hands are killing me from all the clapping. We were at Caton stopping the traffic between the two car parks just near the water station.
I hear a certain course in Essex produced some remarkably fast times today as well - did they import their measurer from the Fylde coast?
No - it measured 20.11 +. And that tallied with me being around 45 secs off what I thought I would be for the effort. And the guy had all his certificates out and it was being BARR rated today, so everything in place for a pedant like me. In fact the organiser was a man after my own heart. And yours probably. No race memento, no prizes except county medals. 3 cups of water en route. Old skool
I now know Pug measured Trimpell at 19.87, so there's 3 all well short. And the entry form does not state the race has a certificate of course accuracy.
Who needs prizes when you come away with a sub 2 hr time! I take it you're not running Spen then?
As for Trimpell, its another course with abrupt turnaround points. In fact it has 4 and we know that these seem to confuse garmin measurements so it was probably okay.
I measured it a 19.87, which was surprising at the end as every mile marker my Garmin was 0.04 over the mile marker
