I agree with Johnny again - I've done this race 3 times and it is a sloping lake with the "uphill" being the return section to the dam before you freewheel back down to the village

Yeah, I've ran it twice and sent my entry off so can't wait for this, IMHO, it's the finest half marathon in the country... FACT lol...

A Martin Looks like we meet again my friend hahaha

I have it on good authority that in Iron Man Switzerland the lakes are definitely ALL UPHILL.

Anyway

Where's me diary, because I'm definitely interested in this, and it's not just so that I can meet up with His Pugship. Actually, I wonder if I could set up another challenger...?

I ran round the lake 6 weeks ago. Loved it. Just ran my first half on Sunday (Stafford) in 1:34. Hope to run this one in sub 1:30.
Tea and cake at lakeside view probably a bad idea!

Vyrnwy is quick, although you can have a tendancy to go off like a nutter on the first 5 mile... which you have to keep the reigns on. When you make the turn, think this is around 7 mile, then there ARE inclines, nothing serious but if you'r eon your limit, you will pay... however, you have to take the option that at 12 mile, the l;ast mile is fast... so treat it as a 12 mile race... and you'll be fine.

I'm hoping for something rather tasty here BUT with Berlin Marathon 1 weeks later, may have to old back... I'll see how I feel closer to the time.

dont leave it to late, ive been told theres nearly 800 entrys gone and 1500 to fill and its only march

Might chuck in an app. Only just got into runnin proper. Doin 10k`s at the mo but hope to get a half done soon. This one might be ideal for `end of season` especially if it`s flattish. Nice area; my mum lives near Welshpool so it`s do-able for me!

IS It

Mick n Phil friendly ??

The course should be fine. Just got to ask the race director I guess.

Alex- how are u BTW - hope alls well

it's going to be another one of these events ahh

 running the  race will be easy

but will they let us IS another thing

i actually said to some one only last week - i use more energy and stress asking people to let us run

then actually running the 13 miles it's self

 My number came last saturday 900 and something so it looks like it's filling up fast
23/03/2009 at 21:14

Posted my entry today. Stepping the training a little as i have a couple of 10k races over the next few weeks: lilishall sexarathon (first race of six) and Muller 10k (highly recommended)

Is the circuit clockwise? Hope so, whenever i have ran or cycled the lake in the past i have always gravitated towards this as like others i feel that the gradient works in your favor.

23/03/2009 at 23:22
Clockwise, RR, as far as I can recall.
24/03/2009 at 16:29

Got my number through yesterday - 9hundred & something so def filling up !!

I've got the map & it is clockwise as usual.
