  • Been thinking of doing this a few years now something always came up. It's usually my birthday weekend. Going to sign up this time. It's local to me and fits in nicely with my ultra training
  • I watched it a couple of years ago. Can`t remember, is there a kids` playground nearby?
  • ET there is a kids playground near the end in the village it starts and ends in. Are you thinking about taking the mini's? Is you are there is a posh indoor play area for littleones I saw it in the route but no idea whats it's called. Good half for doing but a bit nice and hilly. image

  • The only posh indoor play area is about a mile off the course in Cleckheaton.Diddy middies by Spen baths.I think your thinking of the nursery,cake.Anyway the community centre sound for cakes sarnies etc.
  • How competitive is this one?

    It's only my 2nd half marathon leading up to London Marathon and likely to be doing 2:15 but don't want to be home after the bunting has been taken down!
  • going to enter this tommorrow love this hilly race and then do spen 20 on 11th March
  • I usually finish half way in 1 hr 47 ish...a few testing hills...
  • just entered today and can not wait of running up to chew valley from dovenstones in Greenfield

    IT's got a wide field but a very hilly one so not going to give you a pb. Worth doing for london training but a hard race. you won't be the last to finish by a long shot.
  • Woohoo I'm in!
  • If you do 2.15 you won't be last by a long way
  • Hi Guys,

    The race is filling up nicely now. Looks as though we are going to have to put the Race Full signs out again.

  • Will I be okay for Weds to deliver my forms,ES?I am just waiting on a Pudsey Pacer to let me have is form.

     Dont forget to contact my work for the free drinks.

     Dave.

  • looking forward to it again also in training for spen 20 on 11th march hope to beat 2h30 and not have kids try to put runners of at the bottom of the hill of mile 19 which happened this year
  • David, not a problem, and will get in touch with your company.
  • Looks like a good one!, I might try & make it my first 'half' since mid 2009, but it appears that I'll have to be quick, but I'll have to consult the 'Fell Runners Association' calendar first to see what's happening thereimage

    Okay, that's still my only oneimage  (on the road anyway)

    Regarding the beck at Brighouse, I can't remember, is there a bridge there

    Ahh, yes there is - see 2nd entry.... (plus my own comments about Bingley & 'Beckfoot', just above it

    Edit @ 17:46

    Oh good!!, there's nothing that local on that weekend (so far), & the 'Ilkley Moor Fell-Race' is a fortnight later

  • Thinking of having a go at this. Can you enter online for this? When does it usually fill up?
  • 15 west normally first week in Jan the race is full.

    Im running the Brass Monkey in Jan,then LHM followed by the Blackpool half a fortnight later then the Blackpool marathon on the same day as the Spen 20.Big decision to run Blackpool rather than Spen but hope to do at least 3 marathons in 2012.Also looking at Sunderland marathon in May and Liverpool in october.

     Is the Freckleton half worth running in June I believe this half is a pb potential?Any thoughts?

  • Freckleton I found boring one bit for 2 miles is just a long straight road
  • Cake wrote (see)

    how you doing Cake, are you doing this again next year?

    im tempted again 

  • image Im good ta. Entered it and should be running it. It have killed me last time so thinking it should be fun. image Hows you chuckles?
  • im good and just entered too

    wasnt in the best of health this year for it so gonna try and beat my time image even with the hills

  • image mmmmm sweet lovely hills. image This one isn't flat. imageimage
  • Hills glorious hills did you say?!?!

    Best get signed up then image

  • image Big funky hills matey image
  • Signed up for this a while ago. Looking forward to doing it.

     If you normally run around an 8min mile pace, what sort of time would be good for this.... 2hrs?

  • gram is that on the flat? I would say this half would add about 15 minutes to your normal time depending on your fitness. It's challanging. The start is almost straight down and then rolling from them. If anyone has a race profile hardy would make interesting viewing.image 
  • Didn't realise Liversedge had any hills? image
  • image Big speed bumps matey.
  • all this talk of hills is putting me off!
