ahh - this could be just what I've been looking for!!  This is a few months earlier than last year (I remember we were staying in Manorbier at the time & the course looked v hilly) - any reason for the change of date to June?

Have been looking for a local marathon this year after a Christmas time injury ruined my chances of doing the Great Welsh in April, think this will hit the spot instead.

I did this marathon last September and loved every minute. It was my first so had no idea really what to expect but the people of Tenby and the surrounding area's really made it a fantastic run. I said i would never do another marathon but one year i will do it again.

Hi there

 Just completed the Great Welsh marathon and fancy another. How hilly are we talking this one?

I saw this race had a few teething problems last year, but have entered it anyway because I love this part of Pembrokeshire. Has anybody got an idea of how many people are likely to enter or how many did it last year?

@lazy gardener

I ran the marathon last year and i think about 200 people ran it with another 250 or so running the half marathon (but i am sure Scott powell or Matthew Evans can give you the exact figures).

I had a fantastic day last year and whilst it did have a few teething problems none of them spoiled my day. I am looking forward to running the course again in june.

Hi Dr. Steve,  Thanks for the info and nice to hear that you are running it for a second time. I am looking forward to a good race.

So how hilly is this? There are a couple of climbs that look pretty nasty from the course profile. For those who ran it last year, what sort of time do you think you lost because of the hills?

Its challenging but do-able

I grew up around Pembroke so I knew what the hills would be like and , of course, what goes up must come down!

I was about 30 secs a mile slower than normal but it was also run on a pretty hot day last  year.

Fabulous course though, it is worth running just for the views and the enhanced self esteem on finishing.

This will be my first Tenby Marathon. If there are only 250 runners Im afraid of being left behind as I'm running by myself and im not that good. I did Dublin which is flat in just under 5 hours. Is anybody else looking at posting a 5 to 6 hour time? or do i give up  now?  
23/05/2011 at 20:23
This will be my first half marathon.i can run an average course of 13.1 miles in 1:52.Is this course going to be to hard for me?
27/05/2011 at 06:29
Fran - Also my first Tenby Marathon and I expect just under 5 hours too, Just enjoy, and dont give up
27/05/2011 at 07:27
ok cheers fran

Having just downloaded rthe ace pack I am really looking forward to a good weekend - although not the four hour drive home afterwards.
31/05/2011 at 07:17

Why is it that with 5 days to go I now start to question my own sanity? IS 6 hours REALLY going to be long enough

31/05/2011 at 09:28

Having a bit of a dumb moment - can anyone point me in the direction of the race pack that someone has mentioned they have downloaded?  Thanks

How many people are actually running this marathon, it seems a big secret, I'm doing it, but I get the feeling it is not well supported
