I suspect if they have postal entries they would have reserved some spaces for that?

It will be my 4th year at Beachy ..

I think it's my 6th beachy... I just can;t get under 5 hours on this...  I ALWAYS have issues leading up to this event.    It's my NEMISIS!

i've heard it's tough.

what's your mara pb?

OK, thanks runner duck, will keep a look out.

4:17  but still it;s not hat I don;t like the hills.   just Hates me!
02/04/2008 at 12:22
I did an online application yesterday and got in so fingers crossed for you that there are still spaces.

that is a big difference - no wonder beachy head has a reputation as a seriously tough marathon!

i hadn't realised just how much hills take out of you until i did a flat half marathon a couple of months ago. i saw just how much fresher you stay without that surge in heart rate and quad overload! doesn't happen a lot where i live, especially when i'm with the running club who are masochists to a man. have to confess mara training on my own has taken me along the canal a lot .

well done on the 4:17, sort of time i daydream of getting! where did you get that?

You're not fretting already are you RD, 8 months of fretting is a long time....., theres nothing stopping you entering Beach Head this year you know .

Capt'n, cant  you wear your pants over your shorts in true wonderman style???????  Beachy in under 5 hours, I'm not sure I'm gonna get under 5 hours at stratford in a few weeks time ......., , I shall try my hardest though.

I not that normally caught up on times,  But I just want it! 

My 4:17 was Luton, (probably just wanted to get away as soon as possible)

And Pants over shorts... Intresting....   I should try that...  Or just on my head..!

02/04/2008 at 13:12

nope, not fretting about hastings (yet!), just asking about beachy head for NEXT YEAR!!!!

pants on the head - could be a forum look - that way we could all recognise each other at races -result! 

02/04/2008 at 13:18
