thanks everyone for the info! I have had it as confirmed as i can without having a pressure probe stuck into my muscle, which is what they say the next step will be if it doesnt ease off :(

It was a real bummer as I was doing very well for me in the race got through 4 miles in 23:30 which for me is flying! Then my calves just got worse and worse till i had to stop and waddle back to the changing rooms. I have searched the web for info on CS and i really hope it isnt it just a very bad case of swollen muscles. It isnt shin splints or a torn muscle so i hope it will ease soon. I am walking ok now after a week so fingers crossed!! Thanks Shades, toomuch and aunty still hope to see you guys at the start line in october :)

Well dpryce, doing the first 4 miles of any race in 23.30 is also flying according to my standards too!! Whats that, ave pace of 5.55 or similar?!

I do hope that the organisers are including your dog when laying out the refreshment tables Dave! I should hope to see little bowls of water along with plates of glucose enhanced dog biscuits being handed out at the same time as the mars bar chunks inside the last 10 miles!!

So tell me, who is the fittest?!

yes about 5:55 or something like that Mr Plod it felt great until me legs fell off ha ha.

Good idea on the doggie bowls too as if they lay them on the ground when I'm really suffering they will be at a good height for me too!

mp - who's fittest? no contest! here's a clue. he's got four legs! nice idea about the stations! the guy doing the bacon baps at the end was espec kind and gave him 2 for nothing. so i said to charlie - one for you, one for me!

Hope injury soon clears and that you remain injury free leading up to Anglesey and Snowdonia.

Diolch John. Its so boring not being able to run! Anyhow better injured now than closer to the races or so i keep telling myself! Hope your training is going well storm up those hills mate :)

CD - thanks for the info, did a hilly 10k at the weekend (Kirkbymoorside in north Yorkshire) and got a PB so I think the hill training is already starting to pay off !

Hi all,
has anyone had any info through about this, ie race numbers or confirmation of being accepted?
09/05/2007 at 14:57
Ian, the cheque has been cashed but thats the only confirmation of my entry having been accepted.
09/05/2007 at 16:45
me too. they've taken the money but hopefully not run (no pun intended)
09/05/2007 at 17:04
Ah! Will check the bank account! Cheers

hi i sent cheque and entry form 4 weeks ago and they still havent cashed cheque?I got in touch with the guys who organised it last year but they are not actually doing it this year and couldnt give me a contact number but they did give me an email address that doesnt appear to be correct!!!!Im getting worried now as i hope my cheque and entry hasnt got lost in post.can anybody give me any contact details ,cheers peeps.
10/05/2007 at 14:36
Other than the details on the entry form taffy I dont know how else to contact them. If the name and address given are the personal details of the organiser could be worth trying 118118?

Hi Taffyduck

I had an email with an incorrect phone number and email address a while back too. I sorted it out but no longer have the email for details.

Try this: go to then click on 2007 calendar down the home page. Scroll to 27th October and there is a name and number for more details on the marathon. Failing that you could click on 'committee' at the bottom of the page and pick a name to ask if they can help!

Good luck.

Hi thanks a lot for your help, i have just spoken to the orgonisers hubby and he explained that they are just in the process of opening a new bank account because of this they havent been able to cash cheque,apparently waiting for new paying in book,so looks like im in although wont be convinced until i have cheque cashed or some sort of confirmation!! I only had my refund from Abingdon this week so fingers crossed that its all sorted .cheers OBL and MP
11/05/2007 at 12:43
Ive just had my Abingdon refund too, absolutely gutted! Been trying to find something 'different' to do in its place, maybe some soft of extreme event or a a decent ultra.
Anyone got any ideas? Im thinking Aug, Sept or early Oct.......
11/05/2007 at 18:04
my cheque was cashed today so thats it im in :) mr p cant believe you were going to do abingdon before snowdonia ,how many marathons do you do in a week!!!!!
11/05/2007 at 18:52
Taffy, im not half as mad as some you might meet! I do usually 5 of 6 marathons during the year. I have always dont snowdon and abingdon though, so it was just luck (or bad luck!) that they were only a week apart. I dont usually do them with that short a gap in between! Got white peak next saturday which will be my first marathon of the year. got a stag week end to cope with this weekend first though :). Is this one going to be your first taffy? I loose track
11/05/2007 at 19:05
no mr plod this will be my 10th but im so nervous about this one too many hills!!!! and weather can be iffy but i will be so proud of myself when i have done it as its not the easiest.Have a great stag weekend:)
