AH,another Mells trail runner.Hiya Carolyne,never done it.Apparently this is  only the second year it has been run.You probably know about as much as me.I'm doing it with a work colleague.Looking forward to it.I,m doing the Jersey marathon the following week so this will be a good short fast race,hopefully just what I need really.As I have reached my training peak and I am tapering off now.Anyway good luck.

Hopefully someone who has run it can enlighten us a bit on this one!!

Its a good, local race (or was last year anyway). Don't do it if you need crowds to cheers you on. There is one steep hill at around 4 miles (after the 2 miles along the old railway line), but other than that not too bad. Good cake last year.

Thanks for the info Tim.Are there mile markers as well?

Hi all,

Hope you all enjoy the race this year the marshalls at the top of the hill will be very supportive( its my mother)

The course is the same as last year and really happy to hear that people enjoyed it.

Not sure about mile markers but could ask the marshalls to give people a rough idea of distance to go if that would help kiwiscanfly! but you will have to ask them as going past!!!

See you all Sunday
