I'm up for it this year for the third time - and looking for a Snowdonia pb - which is somewhat perversely my pb as it's the only marathon I've run - althouugh that is a bit strong with regard to Waunfawr - remember seeing it the first time and thinking - 'i'm just going to plod gently on and pass all those folk who are walking - oh I'm walking too!'. However if you're prepared to fly then the descent to Llanberis is steep enough to gain the odd minute!

In my experience theydon't confirm by e mail. I just checked my bank statement for confirmation.
if you are worried, just e mail the organisers. They are a friendly crew.

Re Belper: I have received a friendly e mail fron the organisers, there is no cut iff time, the race is open to both walkers and runners.

thanks for that ,will do aunty moggy:)
04/05/2007 at 17:51
We can all use belper as a warm up then!

04/05/2007 at 17:59
MP: I really want to do Belper, just need to confirm that I have the time off with work. A warm up indeed! A slog up more like.

Off to Snowdonia in 7 days. Whoopee. I shall see if i can book into Pen y Pass again. A bit noisy, but I never sleep the night befor anyway and if the malts in the bar are still there then it is a goer for me!

aunty moggy Weather forecast isnt good for next week in Snowdonia pack your rain gear just in case! It don't care at the moment if it rains on me too as I quit in a race last Saturday due to lower leg pain and looks like I'm going to miss at least 2 weeks training. Anyone heard of compartment syndrome seems like I have it in both calf muscles, great NOT :(

dpryce - you do not want to have compartment syndrome, have you had a diagnosis or have you been surfing the injury websites?
04/05/2007 at 21:14
wharfdale runner - that 'hill' at the end is officially 700 ft in 2.5 miles. sounds nothing written down does it. can't see what all the fuss is about (not).

aunt moggy - glad you'll be joining us for a trot round belper. lovely run. i'll have charlie my sheepdog running with me so be sure to say hi!
04/05/2007 at 21:42
Definitely you don't want compartment syndrome.. that's not nice *ouch*. There are a few things it can be confused with and its difficult to diagnose properly - what's the doc said? You poor thing :(

Another Belper one now that I know I can shuffle in at my own pace.. just making sure with the other half that its ok for the day out. :) I guess the dog makes you easily spottable Dave?
05/05/2007 at 05:47
dpryce: Agree with the others. Compartment syndrome is not an easy diagnosis to make. Have you had it confirmed?
Sorry to hear that you are injured. I really hope it is not CS.
Thanks for the weather warning. I always pack wet weather gear for Wales :-).
