    If you don't enjoy fell running JJ don't worry. There isn't much in this.

    There must be a lot of foolish runners around the world then! The course is about 5k. First half-mile is on road, the next mile is on tracks and grass.At the top you go round the tower and return the same way.

    It's a climb right from the start, gradually increasing in steepness up to the tower.

    The trick is not to go to fast at the beginning.Some runners blaze along the road and then come to an almost stop, when the track steepens.

    If it's dry, road shoes are fine.If wet you want a combination shoe like Running Bear Gladiators.

    Regards

    A few helpful tips:

    1) If you overcook it on the climb, the downhill will be painful, slow, and the likelihood is that all your hard work on the climb will be wasted as you'll get overtaken. For best results try and run a fairly even race.
    2) Don't stop!... but at the same time don't be afraid of walking on the tough bits, you won't be the only one, keeping moving is important. This may/may not apply to you depending on fitness.
    3) Remember, as far as everyone else knows this could be you 159th race, only you know it's your first. Don't be worried, you won't make a fool of yourself.

    Also, this race is most likely way marked due to it's length so you'd have to try uber hard to get lost.

    Anyway, best of luck!!!!!
