Worksop half - end of October - not too hilly, but definitely undulating. Really well organised race as well.

Redcar- flat, dull, fast. Might be a bit far from South Yorkshire, but it was easy enough from Leeds for me.
Newark was good, but Summer, and possibly cancelled?

How far are you willing to travel?

There's Clowne (Chesterfield), usually at the end of November.

Worksop is probably a bit hillier than Sheffield, but I wouldn't class it as hilly. According to my Garmin readings of the course route in 2009 from Sheffield, that had 180m climb, and Worksop last year had 245m. I think both are reasonably fast courses given good conditions.

Newark is definitely cancelled.

Clowne is an option - not done it though. Redcar = pancake flat apparently. Robin Hood Half in Nottingham in Sept. Macclesfield in Sept. Is there one in Mansfield at some point? Also, there is Retford Half, but think that's a spring race.

Worksop is a PB course - each time I've done it I've run really well there - yes it's undulating but I wouldn't say it was hilly. Brilliant race

Mansfield should have been a couple of weeks ago but was cancelled, think it was for roadworks reasons (but not certain) so it could be back again next year. I've done Clowne a couple of times and it was my pb each year until I did Sheffield a few months later. Undulating countryside and villages - then a home made oaty biscuit at the end, who needs a medal!!

Got something to say?
