Tour of tameside complete, lots of hills, loads of fun, came 30th overall on the four races and 8th in my age group, delighted with that as there were a lot of "proper runners" on the tour.
Only problem now is I have 97.6km in for the week, hard to leave it at that and not go for the 100k.View attachment 22445
Great effort Gaz

Nice to see you yesterday Gaz
Very impressive running that mate.
I enjoyed that Hyde 7 miler earlier although it was tough with the hills the downhills were very quick.

Bit of a random question but have any of you ran from the Ancoats up Palmerston Street all the way up to the bridge at Councillor St?


F**k me. Incorporated a run from South Manchester to the Etihad and back and this absolutely b*******d of a road was hell. Slow and long incline that gets worse the further you go. At the top of the curve I felt like my run was on the spot. Still had 8k to go after it too. :(
