Thanks Shark will amend my ambitions accordingly! Not received my race pack but the website suggests we should get them in the next week or we should let them know.

Hi All,

I have a place for the marathon and wont be able to run as i've been out for the last 3 months with PF... is anyone looking for a place? I had forgot about it until receiving my race pack yesterday!

Please message me ASAP if interested as swaps need to be completed soon

This is a great run and am sorry for you who cannot get in. Popular marathons like this one just fill up so quickly nowadays that I enter as soon as entries are open. IF anything does go wrong, you know you can pretty much shift your place on. It will be my 4th time at full and I love it. Have had good and bad runs there so am not biased. I loved the new 'reverese' bit of route last year....much better. Am on a plan for Abingdon and should be doing 20 the weekend of I'll be running an extra 6 miles.......gotta be done.

ah Possum have a great race. Got me all excited when i got a reply email. Oh well fingers crossed i can find a place, but if not hope everyone else has a great day
12/09/2012 at 21:34
ok i am now in See you all there.....

Well done karlsp for getting in.
Good luck possum, u will lv Abingdon, I did it last yr and got a pb on a flat route. Not as well supported as new forest much smaller race.
I'm just doing the half at NF as building up for the Amsterdam marathon in a few weeks. Looking forward to stretch legs at MP or faster for this race.

Thx Stephen - I did Abs in 2010 so know what to expect. Good flat fast course but yes, not as good as NF but a different run so that's fine.

Oh and sorry Karlsp for getting you all excited. Good luck with that place.

well i'm doing the half, last minute decision as usual but phoned them up and posted my form off Will look forward to meeting people there

I'm looking forward to seeing the ponies lol, no doubt i'll be taking pics on the way round

Where are people staying ( I realise some of you live near enough to drive up on the day )

hope those that wanted to run this get a place, only 2 days to go I'm really excited about it eek!!!

21/09/2012 at 08:21
Well i was looking forward to this until i saw the weather forecast. Heavy rain for the duration of the full marathon...Not light rain, not drizzle, not heavy showers, but full on cats and dogs for the whole day ;-(
21/09/2012 at 21:24

Yes.......cats, dogs and poines. Oh well, at least we'll all be in it together but it is a shame as the NF in September with the sun shining down and the colours of autumn is just so beautiful and the last 4 years has been exactly like that. Let's hope the weather forcasters have got it spectacularly wrong !!
