OK, down to me to do the deed then.

Who's going to be coming back for more and who wants to get in on this one for the first time?

You won't regret it.


(And, no, I'm not starting the list yet ...)

Go on Mr Rex!, you know you want to

I'll be back for more, and given Mr panad's reactions I think he will be as well - and given his time I think I'm going to have to work on my sabotage techniques

Want to do this next year, will be the first time

Hey pinkbug, welcome to the madness if you don't know what you're letting yourself in for or want a but if inspiration check out the highlights of this year's race tonight at 8.30 on s4c -available on satellite/online if you're not in Wales.

Thanks, will do, though I think I know what I'll be in for, know the area reasonable well-did crib goch last year!

Oh no I don't even like road marathons but am tempted to come back!!!
28/10/2012 at 08:17

Yes, I wasn't going to return but 2012 was so totally amazing it will be my comeback marathon after the Lakeland 100

I will be there come hell or highwater and want to do Coed y Brenin in June too.
28/10/2012 at 08:40
Oh, go on then.....

The best UK marathon by far - the only one I will do every year - legs permitting will be  there for my 7th consecutive one. I look forward to following (again) the forum and reading the trials and tribulations of others en route to the 2013 race!

I'm doing the Coed y Brenin half again - after switching to the half from the full I want to have a crack at this fantastic event with some decent training behind me.

Count me in again, I want to experience this with the added weather challenge in 2013.  Was a truly fab day yesterday

Just signed myself up for the Coed y Brenin Full, that looks like it will be an awesome run too

I've missed the last two years through injury, but back running well again. Was aiming for sub 3 hour last year but had to pull out. Planning on returning next year. By far the best UK Marathon.

T Rex- Is it time for the List now?
28/10/2012 at 14:09

mmmm wonder if i can persuade Mr C and my body that doing this again is a good idea

No, we'll get a few more first.

Been reading up about this new Wales Coast Path.  Their website has brilliant maps of the whole route - 109 pages of A4 in all.  So I downloaded pages 106-107 and went out and did an 11-mile section near to me yesterday.  There's very good signage and new gates/footbridges/boardwalks over marshy bits.

As a long term plan I've decided I'm going to try to run all of it before I hang up my running shoes.  So I'm on the look-out for races which use the Coast Path.  Any suggestions considered.  The Votwo Pembs 3-marathon challenge is obviously a good example.  Might do one of them in each of the three next years?  Only drawback they're a week after SNOD (pinkbug - an abbreviation for Snowdonia marathon).

TRex - No idea of any races in this part that use the coastal path, but if you are in need of some accommodation when you come to do the NE Wales stretches then give us a shout.

Hey,here we go again! Where's the list?
Panad,fab time matey-you were on a mission
A trot around the Great Rome for me tomorrow if weather better. Tis howling a gale and persisting it down in Waunfawr!!!
28/10/2012 at 17:22

Already excited

Off to Italy, brer?  You get about.  You've probably heard there's another marathon over there which you can just about fit in.
