loving the diiference between going from snowdon to a track one
good luck haven't done either yet
Is this gonna be on next year?
not up to mara yet but will be in 6 months. Mixed feelings about the repetitive nature of it but being a Crewie, quite surprised in that it looks innovative (crewies not known for innovation these days-lol)Good luck this year anyhow
Just think, half of this (13.1 miles) will be running round a bend!Is there only 35 able to do this?
Agree that it will be menantly tough.
I'm from Crewe too Stu (3 words that rhyme!) and used to be a memeber of Crewe & Nanteich AC doing Long Jump in the late 80's.
lol -I guess you plod a lot around Crewe now Knight Rider. I do but could not visualise the relatively unscenic marathon around track though. As for long jump I was always in for the "high jump at skool".
May try it next year if it is on but certainly would have to prepare mentally for it. Real excuse is Iamnot at mara level .I am about 1/2 mara level and got a defo place for VLM in April
good luck all who are doing it. I may pop and watch some of it.
Elloooooo, Bro! *waves*
I personally couldn't imagine doing a track marathon although the idea does appeal just because its something different. I think because I'm so used to running in really scenic places though I'd struggle too much with the repetitive nature of something like this. TBH though, I think thats more of a 'weak mind' barrier for me, and Dunc definitely has the mental strength to get over that hurdle.
Dead excited for you D, I have no doubts that you'll trounce it!
I'm part of the team behind the Crewe Déjà vu. Sorry to disappoint you Crewe-ites but it's actually a bunch of us from Sandbach who are behind it - but being a small town in the sticks we don't have an athletics track of our own!
105 laps of a track will be tough, but we'll have some music playing over the PA to keep us going, and as cap66 said there are 105 drinks stations to look forward to
We can't say at this stage whether it'll be a regular event, much will depend on how it goes this year. I suspect by the end of race day we may all have seen enough of the Cumberland athletics track to last us a lifetime.
were in , and are so looking forward to this event
music will be a nice added bonus, but it'll be tough whatever as the laps go on,
chip timing will also be a great advantage as it only takes one mistaken count by a counter for it all to become hard work and completely throw ones rythem
of course, whether we actually succedd with 105 laps will remain to be seen, but we'll have fun ad do what we can
after recovering form months of sickness - i 'm gonna just see whats on on the day
Should I?! Seems kinda crazy but I like the fact that it's apparently harder on the brain than the body. Never run on track before, and my longest distance is a half marathon (albeit a trail one)...
I really think I should...
