Hi Jindalee - I know you have a lot to deal with in your life so just wanted to wish you very best of luck for the marathon. I hope the weather is good for you, particularly while you wait at the finish line.

David - I hope you have done slightly more training than you are saying and that the marathon doesn't make you cry like a baby. It is a little disappointing that Monday is a Bank Holiday as I am looking forward to reading all about it!! 

Good luck to everyone else running too.

 

 

Thank you very much skinny fetish fan! yes i hope for nice weather as I am not a fan running around in the rain for hours

DF - man up! Enjoy the race. Its an achievement to complete a marathon, I don't expect you to run this one
hopefully you don't have a '128 hours'  incident with one of the trenches on the plain and have to sever a leg using an improvised saw made from a lucozade bottle and the drawstring from your shorts..
Hell even if you have to walk it , shouldn't take more than 6 hrs...

Jindalee - there is plenty of tea and cake at the finish and you can always pick up the 152 bus into Salisbury for a bit of shopping while you kill time waiting for DF to finish.

Good luck to everyone running this one, its a good race. I'm looking forward to hearing how you get on.


Hi Dustin

thanks for the tip! i love cakes so will have some of them and if Dave is nowhere to been seen once I am done I might go home and wait for him there Luckily we don't live too far away

Jindalee, after you finish you could always do what we do on club runs and loop back to collect the slower runners.

 

 

That might be an idea but not too sure I fancy running more after I finished, Think I will go with Dustin's recommendation and stuff my face with cake while waiting for Dave. If anyone sees him on the course and overtakes him, please let me know where you saw him so I have an idea how much longer I have to wait.  ;) Cheers!

What times are people expecting to run this? I'm guessing normal marathon time plus 20 mins, I think I am number 228, and this being my third Sunday Mara in a row I'd be happy with anything under 5 hours

04/05/2013 at 10:58
Sorry no idea what time I can manage as it's my first. I will be glad to finish and if it's in about 5h I will be very happy. My baggage label says im no 27 so if you/ anyone else see me around feel free to say hi. Also got Jindalee in black glittery letters written on the back of my (pink) shirt

Oh well hard to spot then, will keep an eye out for No. 27 I'll write my EKGO name on my number so give me a shout I'll wear either a hi-viz green coloured top or black Manchester mara tee shirt depending on sunshine, it will be a good day looking forward to it

04/05/2013 at 11:56
Will keep an eye out for 228. Should be a good day tomorrow. Really looking forward to it.
04/05/2013 at 20:00
Just wanted to wish everyone GOOD LUCK for tomorrow

Thanks to everyone for the advice and support - glad I found this thread.

I'll keep an eye for those numbers. I'll be 304 in a red long sleeve top - come say hello!

Good luck tomorrow folks - have a great run!

Im about to prove that even someone with no training and having never run further than 13.1 miles in my life can easily get around a marathon. this will be a piece of piss. 4 hours 30 here i come.

Yet!! Finished my first marthon. was quite hilly and challenging but managed to finish in 4.45. Which I'm well happy with. And in case you are wondering.. Still managed to beat Df3 with this time.
05/05/2013 at 17:42

Congrats

Fantastic Jindalee, well done!

05/05/2013 at 17:49

Well done Jindalee, had a feeing you would do 4.45

05/05/2013 at 17:50

Congrats on the time, that's a great first effort on a tough course. 

There is also the Salisbury 54321 runs in August if you are looking for something similar in the area.

Thank you very much booktrunk, k80 and screamapillar

Thanks millsy. I am already looking at this... Just have to decide on the distance are you going to do it?
05/05/2013 at 18:04

Congratulations Jindalee! And you sound like you enjoyed it too if you're already looking at other off-road races.
