We will not turn anyone away on Sunday, may nor get a medal, but will if any left over at finish after no shows. Additional printed medals only take a few days anyway.
Weather looks like being perfect, very slight breeze, 5/6 c.
Hope this helps
You have really put my mind at ease.
I look forward to doing better than last year!
Never run this race before. Done loads in Blackpool from the Hilton at other times (Beaverbrook etc) and are all really good days. Am looking forward to it. I wish there was a pacemaker for 7:38's though (fussy old git I hear you shout !!!) as would love to break 01:40 but will be happy with anything under 01:45.
Hope the weathers great.......see you all Sunday.....Good Luck
Hey Mark, Go to BBC weather for Blackpool and it gives you detailed info..........it looks ok apart from the 11mph wind
forecast seems just about fine
Hi, I got there just after 9:30 and someone else wss just behind and they said these were the last two places.
Yep super event, thoroughly enjoyed it. Wind was stiff but not punishing. Going south felt positively balmy at times.
PB and sub 1.30 for me, absolutely what I was after. Chunky ass medal, really good freebies (gloves!) and loads of water. It's very difficult to expect any more than that. Cheers Blackpool, you were great hosts
slowest half ever for me but then I have only run the distance once (October) since a knee operation in 2010. All said; happy to have made it round in under 2hr. As usual fantastic organisation and brilliant fellow runners - i'll be better prepared next year!!!
Big hello to the Sandwell Valley guys - well done
results were up earlier but only just got home and finished unloading the van - either www.ukresults.net/2013/gnwhalf.html or www.sportsystems.co.uk
sory - dodgy RW stuff for the links (been a while) - http://www.ukresults.net/2013/gnwhalf.html or http://www.sportsystems.co.uk
PB here also, by 3 minutes and very unexpected. Very fast course and pretty damn good weather conditions.
A good day all round and a very well organised race.
Just to echo everybody else....fantastic event, really well organised, great goodies (loving the magic gloves!) and we were blessed with good weather. Superb race for me and a massive PB. Thank you, Fylde Coast Running, looking forward to one of your 10ks in a few weeks' time.
Massive thanks to the pacer Matt, apologies for talling non stop but had some really useful advice from him. Used it as a MP run and it worked great. Fab organisation, the hotel made everyone welcome, weather as good as it could have been and excellent fellow runners!
