    Re: The Hebden, 5th January

    We would be very pleased to see a good turn out of runners again on our event. The route is the same as last year and we have an abbreviated route description to make it more runner friendly. We have also brought forward the opening times of check points so it is faster. The grub will be the same and we are arranging for less mud this year. See the website at www.alangreenwood.biz/hvh/index.html for an entry form.

    Re: The Hebden, 5th January

    Two entries going in the post today Alan. Another nice badge to add to my collection I see.

    Looking forward to it plenty. Have done some random training runs around this area when visiting friends, and really looking forward to seeing how it all fits together.

    Does it tend to fill up? Or are there usually entries on the day? I've got some friends who are interested too, but not prepared to commit just yet.
    I think I'll walk this bit....

    Re: The Hebden, 5th January

    Last year was the first time we ran the event and we had about 240 entries. We accept entries on the day but it is 2extra and not a good deal for runners who do not eat so much. It can cause problems for organisers if too many do enter on the day because of the need to buy food before hand. Maximum entry is 300 and as of yesterday we had 82. All the details are on the web at www.alangreenwood.biz/hvh/index.html Look forward to seeing you on the day.

    I could run as a Fell Pony - maybe we could raise a team?
    (In seems somehow in the club spirit to have a team in an event that's non-competitive...)

    Good idea....I did it with the Crumblies last year...its worth doing for the food alone, beef dripping sandwiches and chocolate cake

    Hi Alan. I notice on the bumph that you can get a bacon buttie for a pound if you 'pre-order'. I don't know how to preorder 'em though. So can we have 2 butties for numbers 112 and 113, Julie and Richard? Yummy, ta !!

    So who else is going to be there then?

    Amex - you still going?

    I'm pretty sure DerbyTup and NotOnUrHelly both said they'd be there.

    Who else?

    Me and the missus are doing this on Saturday.

    It ll be my first LDWA event and the first time my missus has done anything like this, so just the 14 miler for now.

    Quite looking forward to it, seems very well organised and the food looks good. Also looks to be nearing the 300 limit.
