Tough, challenging, scenic
<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Trebuchet, Arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Have any runners got a garmin or garmin connect profile of the course? Please send it to me at email@example.com - thanks!
I did the Leith Hill 1/2 in March and it was a great event, so have entered Greensands. Has anyone else done both and, if so, what should I expect in terms of time comparisons between the 1/2 and the full marathons?
I cant find my confirmation for entering this race! I enter so many I can't even remember if I entered it or not lol. is there an E-mail address I can use as I can't find anything on the site? what confirmation has anyone else recieved?
Paul. (hangs head in shame!)
Paul, you are in! (Runner list to 4 September now on the web site, under 'Runners').
Nice one, thanks for that. I can relax now
Rob, just FYI, although the runners list is available at http://www.trionium.com/greensand/runners.html, there's no actual link to it from the Greensand Marathon main page.
Hi Rob, Are you still looking for a rpute profile?
Just entered - couldn't resist with this now the weekend before BHM and having found the Picnic this year to be such a great day (I was going to use 'enjoyed' and 'run' but they really aren't appropriate for the Picnic!)
I'll read through last year's comments to get a sense of what tot expect, but will aim to keep with the masses through to Leith Hill to make the cut off and then ease off completely and try and save whatever I can for BHM...!
Hi Super Bald Chimp - thanks but a couple of our participants from previous runs provided a profile, which was used in the preview of the Greensand Marathon in the October 2012 issue of Runner's World magazine.
Does anyone have an idea what your approximate flat half marathon speed would have to be to make the cut-off?
Hi Dr Rob, sorry to keep pestering you with questions, but are there still spaces for Oct, what time do you think it will fill up? Reason I ask is that I'm running London - Brighton (57 miles) on Sunday, and want to see if I can still walk before committing to the Greensand.
To everyone else - I ran this a couple of years ago and cannot recommend it enough - brilliant run, and great organisation etc. If I could only do one organised race over and over, this would be it (genuinely).
J Hamstrung - here's a guide for you....my flat 1/2 marathon PB is 1h41, I made the cutoff at Greensand in 58 or 59 mins (can't remember exactly), and finished in 4h43. I suspect I could have been quicker overall if I hadn't been so worried about missing the cutoff (unnecessarily as it turned out) that I pushed my pace a little over the first quarter.
Snap! Have you done any distnaces longer than a half in training? If you've managed to get up to 20 miles on a few occasions, then I'd say go for it but if you haven't then I'd be tempted to think twice as there's a big difference between a half and a full marathon, especially one as hilly as this one.
