Don't know if this link will work or not, but plotted out this course from an old drawn map on GMAPs. Forgive any inaccuracies.
Hope this helps anyone preparing to do this.
See you there.
By a strange coincidence i'm in Walton for a family do next saturday, what a great chance to have a run as well.
Fantastic, see you all there...............
So much depends on the weather and wind direction - if it's kind, the three miles along the prom will be wonderful - by the beach huts and ice cream vans!
This is a 'local' race, but good that so many from outside the area want to give it a go - have fun with the relative flat nature of the course and fresh air! It's my 4th half of the year; long may the weather stay kind.
At the mile markers on the sea front they should be handing out ice creams if its warm. Which is the best one to dunk on your head if they run out of sponges?
On seconds thoughts just checked BBC weather http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/2370?area=Frinton light rain is forecast ( for sunday, 17C.
Was a good one - but hot!!! Where did that come from?
Goldenheart and myself completed it in 2hr 3mins together (his 2nd half, my first). Very proud to say we didn't walk at all - but we are both slightly sunburnt now!
It was warm wasn't it! Nice tan though, and the sponge stations helped keep me cool. Bit of a direction problem around mile 12 where I was called back to go left and not straight on, but with all the twists and turns, the (marshall) support was fantastic.
Pleased with 1.30+ and but for the last 2-miles ......
My advice for next year...don't suck the sponges! Thought it was a great race, more hilly then i could have imagined it would have been.....Just ducked under the 1.40 mark.....What was the issue with the mile markers...other then the 8 mile one on the sea front they all looked in place/in the right area?
Anyone know where i can find the results
Yeah, I might give the sponge sucking a swerve as well.
We only saw about five of the mile markers. The rest didn't seem very obvious and 1 had spun out of position, but its a minor gripe on what was a good run and day.
Good time Flat Footed. My Bro came in at 1.38 and my Uncle 1.54
Haven't seen the results posted up yet. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
