Alan seeing as the advertised limit is 200 I think your money is safe
Crafty old devil aren't you?
Oh BTW are you using voice rec or just bad at spelling?
Nice one Alan.
You are oen of the gud guys.
Will we seeing you on the day?
I was one of the 4 people behnd the Best 5k and have never run it yet.
Done lots of running round on the day though.
Two thoughts for this year's race -
Preston Council Parks department to open the barrier on the park avenue at St Pauls Road (race distance 200m). We have asked both years and Steve Ashy has filled in all the paperwork but it never gets done. They open the one at the other end but not the one in the middle.
RIP Paul Best who this race is in memory of.
This may be of interest to anyone who could not get into Wesham on Saturday
don't know if this will be too late for anyone to see this.
will i be ok running this race as a beginner? ive done a couple of 10k's (times improving but still a beginner)
i'm just a bit worried that it wouldn't be beginner friendly with the small entry number!
done the liverpool 10k and Abbey dash its not that embarrasing when there's a few hundred people behind you!
thanks in advance.
Go for it Rob. There were loads of people even walking bits last year. Very beginner friendly. I was last at loads of Lord Shoestring's races for a year & he always looks after slower runners. This is a cool little bargain race, with a nice medal last year & even free butties!
The fact slower runners are looked after makes me feel a bit more confident!
Have just emailed the organiser to see if i would still be able to enter at this late stage, and what i need to do, usually a bit more organised than this but was a spur of the moment decision!
If you look on UK Results Rob (& Shoestring's results I imagine) you can see the times from the last few years.
I hope it's not full......
It's not snowed, so we should be ok..... There was a HUGE puddle last year......It was a lake....
Great idea, Thanks!
ok, that makes me feel even better! was aiming for about 35 mins so shouldnt disgrace myself!
My first proper run was the Liverpool 10k so the rain shouldnt be a problem! (that was a little bit wet!)
thanks for your help.
Preston here i come!
This was one of my first races 2 years ago. I was 37 mins!! Just checked previous results. And there were plenty behind me too. So you won't be anywhere near last with 35 mins I'm sure.
No snow at all in Preston and none expected. We only get it once every 20 years and had snow last year. Dont worry it will be on. Pick your number up at reception in Tom Finney Stand.
Still plenty of spaces so entry on the day will not be a problem. Park on PNE car park and go to reception, fill in a form and you are in.
I take it this was agood event as no one has complained!
Tempting fate a bit aren't you?
Maybe not of the 180 finishers post on here.

I thought the air was a bit to cold, perhaps the organisor could arrange for it to be warmed up beforehand next year ,,,,,,
Will sort out cold for next year!!
Would people do same 5k course in the Summer?
I've done this one 3 times now. Always one of the most welcoming races for slower runners.
Really cheap, nice medal & butties at the end.
Tried for a PB, but my legs refused, as worked hard the day before at Wesham 10k, & still got a bad back from Conwy HM.
Legged it to Blackpool Pleasure Beach after for the last day of the season. It was FREEZING......
