    Talons probably better out of the two but it depends on the race day weather (and personal preference, to be honest)

    Brilliant sets of photos, Seymour Hills. Thank you for posting, even though I wasn't running it (I was on the Fellsman).

    Now entries are open, does it mean I can ask what shoes I should be using now? Planning to go up for a recce in March but would be good to have an indication - fell shoes, trail shoes, road shoes, wellington boots??

    Any guesstimates on the added time the Whernside normal path adds to the race route?

    percentage-wise... not at Andy Peace pace!

    If by 'normal path' you mean the 3P contoured walkers path, distance wise it adds about 2 miles by adding a huge extended loop but it is all runnable. I'd guess though that it must add at least 10 plus minutes, maybe 15 depending how fast a runner you are. For a race like recce though it's much better to go up the old walkers path route up the wall line; its a line to the left of the actual race ascent but absolutely mirrors the climb and is perhaps just a couple of hundred yards at the most to the left of the race route. And unlike the race route there's no problems going up that way pre-race. I'd post a picture of it on an OS leisure map it this forum would let me. PM me on facebook or instagram (search Brian Stallwood) and I'll send it to you
