From mile 18 to 25 I use (each mile) 2 or 3 Lucozade energy Glucose tabs chased by a few sips of water. Boots sell em. Used the same stuff to boost my energy levels when finishing climbing mount Kilimanjaro. I don't use em earlier because they may cause an energy high followed by a dip which requires more glucose. Too much can give you the runs (excuse the pun!)
Anyone local know what the trail conditions for the half course are like and recommendations for footwear?
Oh crap! I should have checked the trains earlier as I haven't done this since 2010 when it was possible to get a train and a taxi to the start on time.
Is anyone (Roxy?) coming down from London with space in their car for a small one? Happy to pay petrol.
Winchester Radio will be covering this event! Looking to talk to runners at the start line and at intermediate points, with live coverage of the finish. After all the rain we are expecting conditions will be muddy off road, although weather for Sunday looks OK and Saturday would have been dry.
Look out for us!! WHR
Haven't received any info regarding the race apart from an email confirming my entry.
Is this correct? Do i just turn up and give my name at the registration? Any further information would be much appreciated.
I hadn't received anything so e-mailed earlier tonight and they had my e-mail address wrong. Got sent my bus pass and i letter with a few final details.
In a nut shell yes turn up and register but if you have booked a bus you should have received a pass by now.
Enjoyed the half marathon today,found it tough but it was very well organised with lots of encouragement along the way,last mile was hard as very tired but happy with 1.42...good workout...respect to the marathon runners..theres alot easier out there.
Well done to all,and thanks for good race...maybe next year...time fades the memories..lol.
Great race - I really enjoyed the half, 1:36. Respect to anyone who took on the full mara. Results here - http://www.fullonsport.co.uk/fos/index.php?module=results
Fabulous event......so glad I did it. Did the full and one I would most certainly go back to another year. I do like these events where you have relay teams and then a half also going one. Lots of great encouragement at switch over points and 'fresh' runners to keep you going.
Well done everyone who did whatever they did on Sunday. Lovely day, great company, fabulous event.
