Has any one who has entered the Lake Vyrnwy half marathon this year received their race numbers yet??
We had to defer from last year and are getting worried that we might not have an entry into this years race
No, not received anything yet. Seem to think they send them out a week or so before. Drop the RD an email - she's really helpful.
Hi- anyone know if this is chip timed?
early days yet for numbers,prob get them around beginning of september
JD don't think its chipped
MM61- Cor, you get around, don't you!
I am doing this for the first time this year and its only my 2nd HM as far as I am aware its not chip timed.
Can anyone who usually does it give me any info about it? I dont live in the area so anything you can tell me would be great
I have heard, correct me if I am wrong thats its a rather steady climb at the beginning for sometime upto the dam, then levels out from there?
Really looking forward to it and have heard its beautiful scenery
Just received number and race info in the post
Hopefully mine will follow very soon then
Have you done it before? If so whats it like?
Booey- It's all new to me too. From what I gather from those who've done it before it starts off uphill in first mile, then flat around the lake before a downhill finish. Supposed to be fast
Yaay my number came yesterday
Jason - thats exactly what I heard about it, so I just need to make sure I go off nice and slow and pace myself
Am hoping the weather is kind for us, fine but cool. I really have a problem with running in heat fingers crossed anyhow
There is a small 'rise' at the start of the race - not too steep or troublesome, providing you don't go off too fast. After that, mild undulation & great scenery will get you round. Hopefully the weather won't be as hot as a few years back, which had runners keeling over at the side of the course. Also can't remember if there are water stations on the course, so might be prudent to carry your own supplies
All the best to everyone and have a good race
Craig- Thanks for that. Think the race leaflet says water every 3m
Booey- I have booked dull and overcast and about 12 degrees with a light wind
Looking forward to it now
Jason - you beat me to it I was just about to post that drink stations should be around every 3 miles I did Silverstone HM back in March and it was a surprising very hot day and I seriously dont think I would have made it without the 4 drink stations
Your forecast sounds ideal, I second it
Craig - thanks for the info
Am hoping to get out this weekend and do a long run, its been a while just to put my mind at rest that I can actually do it haha
Have a lovely long weekend everyone
Booey- good luck with the long run
I'm using this race as a tune up race for Chester mara in early October- so plenty of long runs so far!. Other tune up races are a local hilly (and long??) 10k this Sunday and the Swansea Bay 10k 2 weeks after Lake V
Hi, Does anyone need a number for this race? My friends friend! has a number but is unable to do it. I think he wants some money for it but if you're interested drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org. ThanksDaniel.
Didn't manage a LSR over the weekend, just a 6.2 Sat and a 5 on Monday, maybe do it this week if not am out of time looking forward to it though
Two numbers available here. We've just not been able to do the training due to illness / injury.
Don't forget to contact the race organisors if you do obtain another number. In order to do a transfer.
