I received race info from this email address a couple of weeks back.
If you email them they should be able to send you the info I got.
I've not received anything but all the info you need is here I presume all you will need is your name to pick up your number at the school.
Good luck everyone.
Less than two weeks to go! Hope the tapers are going well.
I sent off an SAE with my paper application form and assumed that an acknowledgement would come in the post. So far, nothing. However, from experience of past performance by Beyond The Limitations, I am not particularly surprised. They seem to get the essentials right - the race will take place, there will be drinks stops and times will be recorded - but I think they view a lot of the other stuff as a bit optional!
I think most people are taken aback the first time they do a BTL event, but you soon get used to it!
Yeah thought id receive some sort of conformation but hey ho! Thanks for the link woody!
Just turn up on the day I suppose.
Yeah I'd agree Tim everything seem to go like clockwork last year apart from my running hopefully do better this year.
What you expecting from this Muzza I'll be happy with a sub 3.30 with my current fitness level.
I spoke to soon info came today!!
Woody, I was hoping to go for a 2.49 at xmas but its all gone to pot sinse I slipped on the ice and busted my ribs xmas eve, didnt run for 10-12 days and I didnt run for a week before that due to snow/ice, have been running the last 10 days or so but not been good as I did Glute med/TFL GRR, nothing but problems at the mo so just going to see what I can do on the day, no point in doing anything now as it wont make a difference. Sub 3 would be a good target tho. ask me again about mile 20,
I am looking forward to it tho. Got loads of marathons lined up again this year so its a start. Never done this one before. Travelling up sat and staying in Gloucester Travelodge.
Sounds like you've had quite a few set backs but the way you push your self is admirable. I think if I'm to get my goal of a sub 3:15 I will have to submit and actually do some proper training .
I've got a XC the day before and a fortieth birthday party at night so traveling down early hours Sunday. Not the best prep but running this more for training than a pb.
hi folks, good to hear we're all in high spirits with just over a week to go.
I've just printed off the details from the site, agree not the most user friendly process and I'm not quite sure what they spend the entry fee on as it's not anything to do with pre-race info but i'm sure it will all be good on the day.
i can't work out what distances the drinks stations are at, and does anyone know if they provide energy drinks or is it just water? a nice cup of tea would be ideal but that might be too much to hope for!
good luck with your tapers and i hope to trot along with some of you on the day
Last year it was ran anti-clockwise. Would assume that is a typo.
I seem to remember there were two drinks stations at opposite ends of the loop - one at Elmore and one at Longney. Not sure about energy drink - I always carry my own in any case. I'm sure you'll find the route is anticlockwise around the loop.
I'd forgotten about the dramatic start for the 50K. This is as it was in 2009 (50K not run in 2010). You have to quickly fall in behind the race car just as you see the marathon leading group belting towards you. The big danger is trying to keep up with the marathon runners!
Gary/Sean - I agree - it was anti-clockwise last year.
I am really pleased it's on the same Longney/Epney loop as last year. It's a nice course. All the Glos AC events seem to have been driven elsewhere by an unfriendly attitude from a minority of the locals. So let's keep it tidy and not upset any of the residents, folks!
