Tough, challenging, scenic
I'm in. It'll be my second marathon, the South Downs marathon in a months time will be my first...
I'm in as well. Can't praise Trionium events highly enough: always hard (I've done the Picnic twice) but always with something special in there as well.
I completed the South Downs Marathon last year, which too had elevations in excess of 5,000ft. How does the Greensands Marathon compare with the South Downs? Does anyone know, please?
For Greensands are we talking about 5000 feet of up, or 2500 feet of up plus 2500 feet of down?! I feel like it makes a difference : )
is it an out and back route?
Just answered my own question (this reading all the page may catch on)
Thank you, Jonnio1, for the info. Up and onwards it is then!!
I just completed the Picnic last weekend, how does the Greensand compare?
I did Greensands last year, and the Picnic last week.
Greensands is much easier, its runnable whereas only a freak of nature can run all of the Picnic. The course is lovely.
I need to convince the GF that we need a weekend in Surrey in October, and then I'll be back!
