So the infamous DF3 will partaking (not racing) in the Neolithic Marathon this weekend

He has predicted a less then 5 hour time he wants 4.30 or less

so what do we all think his time will be...baring in mind his less than average training schedule.

So I'll start with 4.47 as I am feeling generous.

Oh there are no prizes other than ridiculing DF3 or hopefully congratulating him on a sub 4.30

I'm not a DF3 fan, but I'm running MK marathon on Monday desperately hoping for a sub 5. So all I can say is good luck to him and hope he gets the time he wants (well I would, but as I've blocked him, it's a bit pointless saying anything) but hey what the heck


 good luck DF3

OK, I will go for 5:22 with a struggle to the finish.

Are there any extra points for predicting injuries? If so, screwed Hip Abductors gets my vote

Seriously tho, Good luck DF3, hope you at least enjoy most of it, and good for you hangin in there and at least getting to the startline!

Good luck

5:20 and 15th in the Ladies V50 category.

I half suspect he has really been training like a bastard so that he can come in with a suprise good time so I will go with 4.35

04/05/2013 at 08:04

I also have my suspicions that he has been training a lot more than he has admitted to..... but i'll stick to my prediction

Nah, that's what I suspected before Reading HM and look what happened there. However, I do think he will push himself to get sub-5 and then try and use this as 'evidence' that training is overrated. So I am going for an ambitious 4:53.

I've seen some good runners who train well have right old marathon meltdowns, especially first time out.

If you have a bit of a meltdown over the half marathon and come in 2hours or so, I can only imagine sub 5 would be a struggle.

So, 5.25

04/05/2013 at 09:55

similar thinking to Stevie G, and I think he's going to find the hills an unexpected test - 5:14

04/05/2013 at 10:08

First half 2:12 with a 1:03 negative split for a total of 3:15 and just missing a GFA at London.....!!

4:44 - best of luck David 

04/05/2013 at 10:15

He'll doctor the chip for 4.59

04/05/2013 at 10:22

3:20 because he'll be able to cycle it and non of us will be any the wiser. He'll also appear on the photos wearing a straw hat and waving an over large red gingham hanky just for good measure.

BTW thanks to the time machine he finished yesyerday with an impressive negative split.

Who's checking his splits?
