I'm doing this too, I keep having slight anxiety dreams about doing it. Looking forward to it but a bit nervous
still can't make up my mind what shoes to wear, anyone have any ideas?
Oh Wabo I am so nervous...eeek!!
Yes not sure about shoes, I might wear my trusty roadies, which I am planning to replace soon, but might take off road ones too just in case.
What do you think?
well the terrain sounds all different but I have read road shoes are ok. The only thing will be how much rain between now and then? Like you though my battered old slipper/roadies are my favourite choice. Bring them both I guess. I know I should be nervous, think I am not thinking too much about it!
Wabo the north downs are bone dry at the moment so roadies will be the shoe of choice. We would have to have some serious rain to warrant any sort of grippy trail shoe.
Anyone know how many people have entered? Is it worth turning up on the day for entry?
I'm there on Sunday and looking forward to it.
Website says race is full.
Oh well. Nevermind.
Have a good race everyone..
Yep, " strictly NO on the day entries" would offer you mine, as by no means ready, but I've not miss a race I entered yet regardless of performanc potential, and this is gonna be a biggy
cant wait im not ready but my head is bring it on yippee
Ha I'm no where near ready either, but I am looking forward to it, should be a great run (walk)! See you on Sunday!
Hello pals, anyone know if there are energy drinks at the drinks stations, and if so what sort?
(For now, I'm assuming it's just water as the race details don't mention anything posher)
Thanks, see you there
energy drinks at holly hill larger i think its called
What a fab race, loved it. Everyone was just so friendly and so much cake at the finish!! It was a tough-ee but I will be back. Well done to all the organisers. Feet up for the rest of the afternoon now.
Yeah terrific race - matches the reviews! Great marshalls and lovely countryside. Frankly a bit too tough for my wee legs - had a big smile on my face at the finish though!
superb race very well organised best run event ive ever run in superb jelly babies were a bliss
Awesome race - don't think I would have made it to the finish without the great support both from fellow runners and the wonderful marshals: and locals too, I think, cheering from the pubs & streets! And cake! Was worth it just for the cakes and biscuits afterward! Will definitely have to do this one again - guess I've got a year to recover...
Wow! I honestly think that was one of the best races I have run. The marshals were so supportive & friendly, so well organised. I really enjoyed it (shame my legs didn't ha ha!!) great to see the beer at the 'bar' drinks station too!
