Includes t-shirt, free swim, and beer at one of the drink stations! And, of course, one of the most beautiful views on any course. Yes, I'm up for this again!
Just signed up for this, my first time and first ever race longer then 10k!
The furthest I have run is 22k a few times, hope I can make it
Just a month to go!
Looking forward to this. 16 miles done and dusted this morning in 2.58, have set myself a target of 3.45 for 3 weeks time. Hope it's not too hot as I struggled in the hot weather last week.
Not long to go now!
I am out at an all day party the day before so I hope I do okay
Quick question.. I don't own trail shoes because when I run I do so on road or in parks on the paths/hills. Do I need to buy a pair of trail runners? I don't like heavy trainers so I am concerned they will 'weigh' me down (I run in Adidas Aidzero adios when racing and Mizuno, which are falling apart, Elixur for normal running).
Can anyone advice please?
So, those who have done it before, what's the surface like? Some road, obviously, but what's the rest like? Grass? Mud? Hardcore? Stony paths? Sandy?
Question for you Fat Matt -
I ran this many years ago struggled around in 2:14 I think it was - I seem to remember passing the 30K mark and having to run about a mile futher.
Legend had it at the time was that a Cambridge Harrier (George Meredith) ran round the ocurse and said something along the lines of - thats about 30K - Legend or Urban Myth?
Just curious - I think I ran it in 91 - (and yes it was a struggle as my training partner ran about 1:56 for first vet - think Barry whats his name won it that year!!!!!) Just interested - the guy I trained with was a member of Cambridge and used to run with some of those guys then, and that is where the story came from.
