sun holiday and a bit of a run
Just signed up for the 1st edition of the Gran Canaria marathon (24th jan 2010), I'm not missing it as it's my hometown and it's about time they did something like this.
If anyone fancies a bit of a run and happens to be around there escaping the winter, have a look.
Registration is 25 euros... at this moment...
GC marathon homepage.
I'm also planning to do it, I did the half last year and have raced a couple of times over there (my parents live on the island).
I went on holiday here when I was a kid and loved it the swimming pool at the hotel which was right by the sea
I am an ex mararthon runner my limit is now 20 miles
RACE COURSE CHANGES
Gran Canaria, November 4th, 2009 - Race course has variations from initial itinerary due to street maintenance works, for updated racemap visit www.grancanariamararthon.com
Not jealous in the slightest...
I fly out next Sunday so at least I've got a week to get used to the weather. Last year I flew out the night before the half and just wasn't ready!
After running yesterday at -2 and tomorow they say will be +24 ,will need two weeks to get used.See you YP in two weeks
I was on las canteras yesterday..it was 32C yes.
This "winter" has been quite warm.... race day is supposed to be quite warm.
See you guys around, I'll be running the half.
Great GOing all of you. The flying Panda did great too, I hear
Hi! Lovely to meet you Tanas! I thought it was great, well organised, and the best race bag I have ever had...full kit, shorts, technical t-shirt, cap socks and a ruck sack! Lots of drinks on the course and bananas and fruit too. We even went to the pasta party which was good and very filling!
I was pleased with my time considering my lack of training. I was thinking I would get round, but did not expect the time I got. I found it much tougher than my previous two marathons though, probably due to lack of said training. Speaking of which, when are the results up??
I was surprised how few women did it (I think 31 women out of 570 men!)..so...Check me out...I was the 16th woman, and the first British woman home! Bet I never get to say that again. I would defo recommend to anyone who wants a good time, very good PB potential. You would have loved it Finn...nobody to clip your heels or run on the kerb to avoid!
