    Russ (Luther) M Thanks IPS Meldrew! I've only done 2 so far and both v flat (Manchester and London) so this is going read moreto be wayyyyy out of my comfort zone. Done some hilly 10k's, hilly 10 milers and hillyish halves but obviously this is a big step up. Could have just done Manchester again, but fancied pushing myself. Got lots of hill routes planned out for training and got some base fitness, i just need to get on with it now :-)

    IPS Meldrew It's certainly in my top 3 with snowdon & langdale. All 3 are similar. Plenty of hill training and read moretake it easy on the day. It's not a PB course so may as well go to enjoy

    Russ (Luther) M @ IPS Meldrew I was umming and ahhing about it for a couple of months, until I saw someone locally read morein a t shirt and asked him about it. Said it was his favourite of all the ones he'd done and does it every year, that's what finally swayed me 😀 I'm happy to take in any tips about the course 😁 I know I'll enjoy it, especially providing I get the right amount of training in.
