I thought the field was going to be very small - 200? 250?

I've run a marathon with a very small field before. I was on my own for the most part. It was very lonely, there weren't that many marshals or spectators, or if there were I missed them as the weather was shit and I could barely see my hand in front of my face at times. Don't get me wrong, it was an excellent race with excellent marshals, just very lonely running 26 miles on your own.

200 ish this year will be a test to see if the village and infrastructure can cope with more in the future 

We dont want to piss off the village by turning up with hundreds of runners and their mates

Mrs Hog the aid stations and water stations are 3 miles aprt we wont have a massive amount of marshals out but it wont get lonely 

You can talk to the sheep

Take your phone and ring me on the way round

I don't think I'll get bored.  My experience is going to be more akin to the guys in the film Capricorn One - which reminds me, I should probably pack a flare.

Things are now moving on in my inexorable spiral to my ultimate demise ... ie hill 13 at GHM.

Hotel is now booked in sunny Dorchester, and have been for first 'run' after the Sandstone Ultra (joined OH on her week 4 of C25K), and can report whilst things still hurt a bit, nothing appears to be broken, so, unlike the event itself, everything appears to be downhill from here on in.

 ... I actually do that on some of my long runs round here, and to show off at times I get all multi-lingual (careful ladies) and 'moo' to the cows too !! ... (it would probably turn out I am calling them all ******ers and asking to fight them .. but I feel I'm being friendly)

Hi GB! Crikey haven't been on RW for years

Bit late joining this thread. I am entered for the mara but not sure how it's gonna go or if I'll finish. I'm winging it on long runs of 10 miles which have been infrequent lately!

Will you have any squash or liquids other than water at the aid stations please? Will there be anything else like energy bars or sweets etc?

Thanks

Hiya Les 

Yes we are working on twisting an arm of  a gels company mentioning no names to give us a few hundred and we will have jelly babies at some of the stations and cake at the 3 aid stations 

Liquids will be water and some energy drinks maybe SiS if we can get enough made up and cider at 20 miles

16/05/2013 at 14:26

I've got a crapload of SiS that you mix up if you want me to bring that? I think 1 of blackcurrent and 3 big bottles of orange.

16/05/2013 at 14:36

Yes please message me later

16/05/2013 at 14:39

Sure - will do.

16/05/2013 at 15:05

did someone say cider at 20 miles?
Is there a 20 mile race option? or do I have to do the last 6.2?

16/05/2013 at 15:34

you do the last 6.2 wasted on Cider

16/05/2013 at 15:36

That's my plan.
