Right - I'm sitting on the sofa as a late DNS for this year's event

So - in tribute to all the guys out tackling the mountain tomorrow, here's next year's thread, with the correct spelling of camaraderie, as requested, T-Rex.

Good luck everyone

I'll be there in 12 months to get this monkey off my back

In the same boat Frodo,  we will have to wait for the highlights on TV.

See you all next year. Sounds from a brief skim of last years thread that new route is a winner? Plenty of people PB'ing.

Another person who sat the 2010 race out on the bench, my excuse a broken toe.

It sounded so much fun with all that thunder and hail, I bet it'll be all rubbish and sunny next year!

I ache but it was worth it!

had a bit of a shock yesterday as it was the first time i've ever felt that i could quite happily stop during a race and started thinking never again (damn those quieter sections of the course!), so so glad i didn't...looking forward to next year already

 Hi all

Just put last post on old thread

Can't wait for next year Panad Glad you didn't stop for a while there was using seeing you in the distance to carry on!!!

now you mention it that may have been part of the problem TR38 - when i dropped back from you and TRex I was using the sight of you being just in front to keep going, trying not to let the gap get larger, before you dropped back and TRex opened up the gap and i eventually lost sight of him, that's when it got a lot harder.... (nothing to do with having run 17+miles already of course )

Hey, it's just like old times..I'm in for next year even though I had a bit of a struggle with various germ type things!!
Sorry about you having to pull out folks-nearly had to myself and felt gutted so can only imagine how you feel. Anyway, the only way is up..and up

What about coming down the other side, Brer?

Just read your race report on the 2010 thread - can't believe you sub-4d with those issues, awesome!

I'm thinking of doing this next year. I did London and Chester this year (my first two) and have Brighton and Windermere lined up for next year but really want to have a go at this.

Looks a lot of fun (kind of).

My first and last marathon this year eh.

Maybe just one more next year to prove I can do 4hr 30min....or is it the wine talking.

Another classic set of challenging weather conditions this year. The only thing I haven't experienced in this race in the last 4 years is snow!!!

Will also have to try to beat my 2009 time: I missed it this year by 10 seconds - gutting! Aiming for sub-3:50 in 2011.....

I had a 'first and last' marathon in 2005.

Couldn't run a mile when I entered but after training , hobbled round the Cardiff Marathon in 5.37.

One year later and I finished the same marathon in 4.31.

I've now done 11 (including three Snowdonias) with a PB of 4.17 .

Damn addictive this marathon running

Saturday's marathon was my 8th in 4 years (and my 4th Snowdonia) - it is, without doubt, the best marathon by far and it is the only marathon that I will do every year - I guess I am lucky to have it on my doorstep?

01/11/2010 at 16:30

I'll be there - this event is one of my "regulars".  Don't know in what capacity, though - let the side down a bit this year after 3 consecutive 3:59s - a 4:11.

01/11/2010 at 18:08

I'm not letting the wine or TRex talk me into this one....but I'll quite happily string along for the ride on the forum because I like you all lots!!! Panad...lovely to meet you and what a cracking time!!! you must be chuffed! TRex...you're a true gent and it was lovely to meet you too. TR38 well done matey!!! that hail was something wasn't it!!!
