I glad you found the event.I stumble on it on Monday its includes Grimsthorpe 7 that 70miles and Bourne Wooland Half Marathon.I will enter the RUtland one this Week.Great website?
I like the look of this one as well. I've entered the Ultra 70 event but am tempted by a couple of the others on the site. The Rutland Marathon and Woodland Half marathon look like they are in interesting locations.I agree about the website as well Speedy, pretty cool.
Have entered the Rutland Marathon - anyone know of lionks to the course? Is it hilly etc?
Yeah, the website looks pretty cool, but there's not a great deal of information on it.
I'm kean to do the Rutland Water Maeaton, but there's very little info about the course, closing date, any limit on numbers...
BTW, I've started a thread from the event page here just to link to this thread, as it was already on the go.
How's it look then, flattish?
I don't suppose you've seen anywhere what sort of numbers we can expect?
I wouldn't count on it, judging by the other, earlier events (including the Woodland HM, which was yesterday!). I guess all the info you get is in the race pack, by which time it's too late to worry!
BTW have you seen the course profile for BBCHM on GoodRunGuide? It's a little bit misleading! It shows two 'lumps', the first of which we go under, and the second we go through!
oh right, am getting confused! Have emailed FF from their website with a few questions - will let you know as and when they respond....
Hey guys, did the Woodland Half in Bourne that FF organised - the numbers were stopped at 160 and the race organisation was tres slick so would happily do another event of theirs.
Have cycled round Rutland Water a few times and I would say it 'undulates' but don't know the exact course of the run. It is 17ish miles round the water without doing the peninsular which is an additional 6ish. The peninsular part is probably the hilliest of it to be honest but the actuall surrounding area of Rutland Water itself is generally hills lol
I'm doing the Snowdonia Marathon in October and intend to use the 17miler round the water for some of my long runs because of the scenery which will make the miles easier
All in all it should be a good run if you do it, probably a little more challenging than a pure road race but it depends what floats your boat I guess. Good luck to all of you anyway
