I will be running this event & it will be my first ever marathon, but I have the training & support from a good friend. He  has  run it  14 times, has anyone got any helpful tips to for me.

Thank's Darren

Wanted to run this again but will have to miss out like last year as it clashes again with the Beachy Head Marathon. I had heard unofficially that Snowdon was to revert to the Sunday after last year's one-off move to the Saturday to celebrate it's 25th anniversary. Probably not enough of us hopefuls wishing to do the triple  (incl. Dublin) to concern the race organiser.

Snowdon is a marvellous marathon though, and anyone considering it should do it!

Ideal first marathon Darren, you cant beat it.

Lots of first timers too. Add some extra hill work to any normal marathon training scedule and you'll be fine

I was sure they would move this back to Sunday

Oh Dear.... Really wanted to do this so I can work on a double and then the triple...

Maybe next year I suppose!

9 months to go!

Practice walking uphill, because at 21 miles it starts to get steep ! 

The most awesome race you will ever do. Pain is guaranteed. But at the end, be proud of yourself.

Im interested in doing this.

My current marathon PB is 2.54 (Abingdon 2006)

Doing London this year and hoping to get round about 2.45.

How do times on this course compare to London???

(Will I say be 30 mins slower on this course)???

Richard, you'll get lots of nice answers to that question here . . .

well Richard,

This will be my first time but from what I understand ,look towards Double that......................... 

13/02/2008 at 18:48

Richard, this will be my 5th Snowdon Marathon on the trot. ASsa rough guide I usually end up being about 30mins behind an average marathon time.

So you'll be at Abingdon the week before like me then????

Not this year pal.

Only doing London this year (serious) Looking to get under 2.45.

IF I do snowdon it will only be for the experience.

For those of you looking to do a double or the tripple. 

I have been talking to the organisers and they have confirmed that they are very happy for us to run this race "unoficially" on the Sunday and will leave  the signs up and provide us with maps. 

I am planning to give the tripple a crack so everyone welcom to join me.
