Hello, I am running (well jogging) Sheffield Half Marathon tomorrow, has anyone done it before?
Is it as hilly as people have told me?
Im starting to stress now shock

Good luck with it. Sure you'll be fine.

I've not done Sheffield but lots from my running club have and someone I know did some of the course/hills recently and said they weren't too bad (disclaimer live in a hilly area anyway!)

I haven't done that one, but did enter a different one without noticing it was trail with hills.

Everyone slows down when it's difficult underfoot, and the camaraderie is greater. They really can be the most memorable and rewarding events.

Now, get on with your carb loading! Sweeties?

I used to spend my dinner money on bus fare to avoid walking up Ringinglow Road to school...

The plus point is that the majority of the uphill is in the first half, so you should get it all done while you are fresher.

My sister is doing it tomorrow, she said it's head down and just keep going...
