who's in?? :-D
No postcode I dont thinl
Will have another look
From the bumf (in short)-
Park is on West side of Barry, between Barry and the airport
Follow signs to airport along A4226 Port Road
From Cardiff - after Tesco on right, next roundabout --> left (Pontypridd road). Down dip, through lights, up and over hill, turn right into St Salisbury Road. Follow to end, entrance to park is on the right
From Barry town centre - park is off Park road
From Llantwit direction - pass the airport towards Barry. Once passed Cwm Ciddy pub you will need to turn right at the next roundabout onto Pontypridd road, then follow directions as above.
Facilities are limited. NO changing rooms. Toilets at the car park near the finish area. Cafe on site will be open. Car parking is limited - car share where possible. Charges apply after 10am but as race starts at 10am this "should cause no worries"
The rest of the blurb is about the course route - but I am assuming we are not being expected to learn it! They do reiterate it is "multiterrain" and may be slippery and recommend off road shoes or cross trainiers.
Ah well, road shoes for me it isI am really quite scared about this - realised my longest run is only just over 4 (flat) miles....
Have no fear!. The worst part of the raceis coming back down into Porthkerry Park from the caravan park at the top of the climb from the start.There are quite a few exposed tree roots and you may also find some less thoughfull runners will barge past you in the hopes of making for a quick time.Just grit your teeth and hold on!
All other runners noteThe cafe at the finish hasn't improved since last year! The teas and coffees ar horrible!Bring a flask!!
Thanks to my post-Mudchute chest infection I've not run all week, so it's going to be the slowest 5 miles inhistory for me...
Had the same problem Nam.. Seems like there`s a lot of it about, managed to get back running on Thursday, surprised how tired my legs got after not running for a week or so.
Will fight you for last Nam...think I am going down with it
Andy - thanks for that - I will start at the back and then noone to overtake me
Valleyboi - Ouch!
PJ - have you had the mudchute cold too?
*digs out mask to wear to try and avoid catching nasty chest things at the back *
Went out and did aout 4.5 today - woohoo
No I didn't get the cold from Mudchute - though I wish I could have been there! Good for you doing 4.5 today
Coming to club tomorrow?
MaybeI might be very very stiff...we will see
(it was 50% uphill I think - I got lost - half a mile from home.....AtoZ, anyone lol)
LOL well if you decide to come we're meeting at Bute Park now
Going back to this thread, still not sure whether to do this or not. Either way i'll be there to support you and Nam! x
You might get very cold and bored waiting for me, mind! (I havent told you how long it took for the 4.something miles.....;) )
Entered via this site a few weeks ago and not had my race info. yet.
Anyone else in the same boat?
