Got my instruction sheet and running number in the post yesterday. It looks promising. Taper time now, although that does rather imply having done some training. Perhaps I should start soon?

Another one on the list looking for a spare place if anyone can't run.

Hi all, I am in for the 50km - does everyone have their race pack or do you think we collect on the day?  I see Blisters you have yours?

Hi All, I'm a newbie on the Forums .  Received my number at the end of last week.  Really looking forward to the run on Sunday but the taper down nerves are really beginning to hit hard!  I suddenly feel the need to analyse all the stats on my previous runs - what on earth is that all about?!!!!  Need to take my mind off the run!!  If I check the weather forecast one more time I shall go mad!

14/01/2013 at 15:59

My number has arrived, so I guess they did get my email!

14/01/2013 at 16:03

Mine has not yet, but I have an email saying I am in so not an issue really, I will just turn up on the day - few more days yet for the post to arrive.  Looking forward to this, never run over marathon distance on the road, all mine have been off road so I am interested in what pace I could maintain over the extra 5 miles or so.  Anyone else doing the 50km on here ...

Running Beach, I'd say for 50k I'd go about 10-15 seconds a mile slower than usual road matathon pace and give it a go! Best of luck, I'm sticking to the 26.2m fun run
14/01/2013 at 18:34

Thanks Muzza - I had the same thought on pace.  So we must be right!


I would never called 26.2 miles a fun run!  Well 20 miles is fun and then 6.2 miles is why the bloody heck have I entered one of these again!!

its al good enjoyable fun - you must all enjoy it to do it

ive no regrets - wether i ever get back to FM distance, well we'll have to wait and see

14/01/2013 at 19:55

Yeah I agree Micknphil, we keep on coming back for more.  Hope you get over the injury, if you are injured and back to running.  It is a buzz!  

14/01/2013 at 19:58


do i know u at all - have we met ?

ive had a tumour removed from my lung friend, then Norovirus, and then heavy head and chest cold, and its all left me drained tbh

but expereince is behind me, so i ve just got to pick up fitness really

14/01/2013 at 19:58

forgot to say - running long distnce is my life - always has been

14/01/2013 at 20:07

Hey Mick and Phil..easy, easy..I hope to hear you calling out those immortal words I've heard you say so often. You've had a crap time of it lately bud, hope 2013 brings you much better luck. Can you ensure that it will be about 13 degrees, with glorious breeze obviously, excellent conditions underfoot and a PB? Not much to ask Mick Brer Rabbit x

14/01/2013 at 20:12

i seem to remember u shout at me as u passed at mudchute ??? yes ??

this sunday i'll be chanting - EASY - EASY - EASY -  all day long, we'll spectate to and fro and run a bit as well

14/01/2013 at 21:37

Sorry Mick and Phil, never met you.  But assumed you were injured, but sounds a lot worse than an injury.  Wish you a quick recovery.  Do not blame you for feeling drained.

Hope to see you out on the course, even if you are not running.

The we was a royal we as in me!
