Ed, is the new course going to be faster / slower / same? Any idea of elevation for the course?
Course is exactly the same but just run the other way round. Cliff I will pass on your offer to Andy
I haven't done this race before, so if anyone can give me an idea on the elevation, that would be great. I know there are 2 steep hills, thanks Chesterfield Bill, but I'm just wondering how steep?
Hi Cliff - Andy has already had a volunteer for tail end but he is grateful for the offer. Helen is still short of marshals if you are free?
Depends on your speed and ability I guess. I am an MV60 and I plod up one and walk up the other one.
Thanks Chesterfield Bill, you're right it's all relative I guess, I'll just take the course as it comes then.
Okay, so I just took a look at the map/course link on the website, I'm glad I always put a few hills in my long runs, that's all I'm saying. The last 2 miles look like they could be toughies!.
I have just had a look at the reverse route and the two worst parts of the route for me personally are now earlier than they were on the original route, which is better for me. The haul up the cliff which used to be on mile 7 is now about mile 2/3 and the long haul up from the Marina which used to be a real drain for me on mile 19 is now around 12/13. The last two miles are now NOT the toughies compared to what they used to be.
Sounds like you Thaneters have turned soft
Thanks Chesterfield Bill. As I don't know the area much, your info is much appreciated.
Wow! I was under the impression it was a fast course - doesn't look that fast with that elevation! May have to review my target time...
I was excited to receive my number the other day, but didn't receive my number for my category in the Kent champs. I've looked through the race instructions, but no details about how we get these. Do we pick them up on the day or do I need to contact the organiser to get it sent out to me?
Laura both deadlines are 17 February.
Keir if you are a V40 we have run out but the Kent organiser will have more on the day. If you are younger then its my mistake - come and find me on the morning!
V40! The cheek! I am 'only' 38 1/2!
I'll come and find you on the day with a copy of my birth certificate!
JFDI Our local Royal Mail sorting machine managed to chew a corner out of the envelope and my number. The number is still perfectly visible but just in case you are wondering when I turn up, I will not have got a bit peckish and started nibbling my number!
