never tried this one before so dont know what im letting myself in for, but im up for a challenge
not too far to travel back after
First time for me but it reads well!?
But, is it a fell race?! Seems like enough climb for one? But what would I know! Never done a fell race...
Any helpers out there?
Must have been fairly popular for it to get voted '11th best race in the country' by RW magazine?!
2 of my friends have done it before
which is why ive entered cause they said it was well worth it
i'll be somewhere near the back, if not the back marker
but who cares at least im trying it
No chance of losing your way either. It must take the organisers an age to put out so much tape and so many arrows.
Yep its hilly, you'll know you've done it. Just don't run that fast that you don't look around you. Its too nice a race to miss the views
You'll love it
Out in the country - better than tarmac pounding
true and not too far to fall back home after
Briliant! I was just questioning the Trail shoes v Road shoes, er, question!
Will bring the road shoes then? and mebbe the innov8s as well, just in case...
Looking forward to this. Sounds a fairly big turn out (350 last year?) What's the split runners v walkers like? Mostly a running race?
But well earned couple of days off! Agree completely with the 'walking, not worth running and killing yersel' aspect to a lot of this race.
I changed mindset and really enjoyed the course, and experience. Thought the water stations were great as well!
PS I see results are now up, what about photos? Anyone know?There was that bloke atop the wall before the woods taking pics that i saw?
i did enjoy it really just a bit harder than i thought but like you im enjoying my few days off before getting ready for this weekends half down south,
and you never know i might be back next year
Planning on entering this as an Autumn Marathon training run! Not from the area but used to the hills, coming from West Yorkshire!
Looks like a cracking, but challenging race. Any pointers/tips?
I want to enter this race as a marathon training race. Could anyone tell me if the course is definitely fully marked please? I can't read maps you see and I don't want to risk getting lost!
No doubt in answering this - it's probably one of the best marked courses out there. It must take them an age to do it. Loads of tape and arrows of all different sizes.
Great thanks Garry. I think I'll enter then, sounds like a good 'un!
It is, I've done it the last 2 years. I'd be back but I set myself a few rules this year. Nothing over a half marathon and nothing I've done in the previous year....
