This event is listed on these dates:

Simons Dad
A really good run and only the second time that I have gone sub 1.30. Conditions perfect.
Jimrunner
Great route and conditions and managed a PB to boot! Race start was chaotic as too congested and narrow but luckily didn't get held up.
wrexhamrob
not gone for it in a half for a while - see if i can get under 1:50 again
JAnders
55th (Chip), 56th (Gun)
♣BelleVueRacer♣ of Beartown
fucked my fucking calves up.
fucked off.
noswad
6th M55 PB for the course. Overall gun placing 225th
leftachilles
Totally out of shape
SimonY
This will keep me focused on winter training.

PB for this distance: 1H 56M
Da Big Guy
Hoping for another PB if can keep the training up ovcer winter.
steamy
First ever sub 1:30 half marathon. Yeah!
Nephi
No 1488
A real confidence booster as I smashed through the 90 minute barrier with a 5 minute PB :)

30th Anniversary Four Villages Half
Chip Time 1:27:09 - Chip Position: 153/1625
Gun Time 1:27:36 - Gun Position: 162/1625
Cat Position M40: 39/257

Suspect that I will suffer with DOMS for the 6 mm downhill for mile 12.

The start was a bit congested but the way quickly opened up once onto the road. A good circuit round quite country lanes with virtually no traffic.

Marathon bits tested out successfully:
Porridge for breakfast
Running belt for the number
Walked the drinks stations (cups)
corned beef keith
wonderful course, great atmosphere, well done Helsby Running Club on a great day, the only gripe was the start which was poor. Still managed to knock 1 min 46 sec off for a new PB!!
swittle
Haven't run Helsby for a while; looking forward to the 2-mile downhill "finish" :)
Karen T
New PB but only by few seconds. Nice route through quiet country roads, start a bit too congested. Well organised event
fellwrecker
Still my favourite road half marathon - despite the crowds. Great organisation. Shame about number of runners dropping gel wrappers away from drinks stations. Back to the fells for a while now, although pleased with probably pb.
MADMAC
GOING FOR SUB 1.26 FEEL IN SHAPE FOR IT
**slowguy**
My Second attempt at a Half marathon, Quite hilly late on, a tough race but a good one and cant wait for next year.
