Hi, how does one get back from Axmouth and don't say jog back
09/01/2010 at 11:37

I did look. I presumed that there would be transport from the finish to the start, post race and as I couldn't see info about that on here or Sidmouth Running website, I thought I would ask.

I'll think about it, I would have to drive to Seaton and get the coach back- which is fine and £5 is a bargain. However, I have a marathon on 2nd May so it's whether I want to risk potentially damaging myself so close to the event!

Sounds like a proper run though and one which would tire me out

Thanks for the help.

Yes, I noticed that on the write up on the Sidmouth website. I may just stick to running along the pavements but we will see, I'll let my body decide nearer the time. Hehe I wouldn't race it- those hills are immense- good on anyone who does it; think my lungs might explode! I'd like to do London again but not for a while, want quieter races for the moment.

It does sound exciting though!

See, this is all very tempting....  .... Oooh desisions desisions!

 Good luck might be worth getting some roller skates/mountain board for the down hills if I did it- be getting the speed/overall pace well up then ..... lol

He hehehe, I like your thinking!

I don't need much convincing when things as challenging as this come along..... Infact this trait usually ends me in trouble; it's so easy to sign up to things on the internet without really considering the consequences! lol!

Hi Jon

Are you staying down there over night before the race? if yes are you in b&b cause we are looking for accomodation. If you live down there do you know of any cheapish accomodation?


27/03/2010 at 18:26


No we live closer enough to drive down in the morning. there maybe cheaper places to stay in axminster (its only 10min drive away). If I hear of anywhere in the next day or 2 I will post it for you.

See you there

Just checked the weather forecast.  Snow on Friday night, Sunday will be 25 - 30 mph winds from the NW, 3 degrees that will feel like -3 degrees.  So warm clothes will be advisable, unless you are real hard, which I am not!! (4 layers for me, plus gloves and a hat!)

 Good luck to all and see you there!

30/03/2010 at 17:09

hi Devon if you go on the webpage, there was a profile.  Up and down summerises it for me!  I love the 600ft to sea level and then back to 600 ft!

Jon - I am going for four hours ish- so around 11:30 minute miles on average.
