It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
Any info about this would be appreciated.
I`m doing the one at Catforth a couple of weeks before but this would be a good back-up if I don`t get a good time there. Or would it?
Yes this is a new new race and it is myself organising the event due to so many people that mist out on helsby and the brass monkeys.
The course is flat with 3 slight climbs in it which rise 5 to 6 metres over a1/4 mile and are well apart so to me a pb course.
If anyone fancies a recci on sunday morning and has a good GPS and would be willing to put it on this site we are setting of at 9.30am from the Derby arms pub which is the start of the race. If you need any more info give me a call on 07851412354 cheers Alan T.
Hi tortoise at the moment runners world are just opening it up to online so is ukresults but running diary are up and running ahead of everyone and www.shoestringresults.com should be up and running tonight.
How old are you and I'll give you your number to go with your age. But dont forget I only have 300 numbers HaHa.
Yes as we just need to up our numbers on the public liability insurance and with this being the first run then I would just like to put on a good event and let it get bigger on its own without the pressure. Thats why the closeing date is the 8th jan so we can decide to extend and get the logistics right so hopefully everyone goes away happy.
Hope that answers your question steve.
Thanks for all the info alan. I might sign up after Catforth. Also will let me b-i-l know about this!
Would love to have joijned you but had cross country today. Looking forward to seeing the data.
Can anyone tell me if ipods/music players are allowed for this race?
best wishes. x
No they are not allowed as you are on open roads and need to be able to here traffic and the instructions of the marshalls as there are to junctions that you must cross and be able to here the marshalls and you should be listening to your body not music hope this does not put you of as it is a great course to run cheers Alan T.
Ran the proposed route with Alan on Sunday and I have attached the following link - http://connect.garmin.com/activity/128741998#.TsIvXzAd038.email (hope it works!) so you guys can see the nice scenic route. (I know the route I posted is only 13 miles but am assured that the route will be an accurate 13.1miles!)
I personally found it to be a nice route with a couple of tiny little inclines which are nice to push but all in all I would call it a flat route with no hills!
If the other races put on by this race organiser are anything to go by it will be a well organised race with friendly marshals and a great goody bag!
Will there be chip timing for this event? I am trying to quality for the NYC marathon but I would need my individual time to be verifiable in order to submit my time. Thanks Alan!
Hi Rebecca there wont be chip timing but if you make yourself known to me on the day I can give you a copy of the course measurment certificate and we could use a different watch and time you as you pass the start and finish. But I would think if you have somthing to say it is an accurate course then any published time should be OK.
As to rjh as this is the first half marathon there will be a medal and other things and if the race gets bigger we can look into other goodies cheers Alan T.
