    Lostock 6

    Anyone fancing doing the Lostock 6 on 25th Feb.

    If you break the course record of Men: James Trollope (Birchfield Harriers) 32:08, Women: Pauline Powell (Blackburn Harriers & AC) 33:25 then there's a prize of 50 and 65 for being first male/female.

    I know Oxo held the old course record of 29:12, so I'm sure there's a few on here that can break 32:08 for 6 miles.

    Hopey, think you'll find you get a good field this year, with the Nationals being moved into March... I may put in an appearance myself! Not much chance of 32:08 from me though!

    Also, it doesn't clash with a Radcliffe race this year either!!

    I know Vince, so I might give the radcliffe trail race a go.

    Yes NotIntaFells it was a problem last year with the Nationals falling on the same weekend, so hopefully this year we'll get a few big guns.

    How is it possible Oxo did 29:12 if the course record is 32:08

    Oxo did it on the old course, last year we had a different course finish which I think is better and should be faster.

    Re: Lostock 6

    I have a map I can email it to you?

    OK It starts at Barnstormers Pub near the Reebok Stadium, from there it heads up a climb to the A6 Westhoughton, follow the flat A6 along (towards Manchester I guess) at the cross roads where the white horse pub is, it's left into Chewmoor vilage, through the village and down into Lostock, past the train station and then for the climb up to Chorley New Rd, once on Chorley New Rd you follow this towards the Reebok, this is where the course changes, you turn left into Ox Hey Lane at the top of the slight climb on chorley new rd, you are approaching the finish in the opposite way to the old course. A better finish as it's a straight finish, the old finish had a tight corner at the finish.

    You going to have a crack Bisto?
