Challenging, muddy, scenic...
The race is now full - sorry, no waiting list, and no entry on the day. Hope all the training's going well!
Thanks Strangely! oh, so it looks like the Munro is much toughter. good. I can relax a little bit good luck with the training everybody and see you on the Hill!
Yep, see you on the Hill!!!! Can't wait! And, good luck everyone with your training, hope it all goes according to plan.
I'm really interested in running this if anyone has to pull out? P/M me please! And might have +1 as my lady is a bit of a speedster!
2012 Munro was nails! I'm hoping this won't make me cry as much. Looking forward to it!
It's gonna be very muddy, I think. I wonder if Dr. Rob can enlighten us on the course conditions nearer the day, please? Many thanks.
I think I’m just reiterating what others have said before me, but I ran the course on Saturday morning and parts of the first couple of miles (which are also be the last couple of miles) were pretty slippery. The worst of it would dry up quite quickly given some dry weather, but I don’t think that is going to happen. Grip was generally not a problem on the rest of the course, but as ever on Wolvens Lane there are puddles. You can weave your way around most of them without leaving the track, but there are 3 or 4 large puddles which are unavoidable (unless you take detours through the Holly bushes) and they are at least ankle deep. I will definitely be wearing trail shoes on Sunday!
If it keeps raining, non swimmers may want to carry a life jacket
Unfortunately I won't be able to run tomorrow - caught a bad cold... third time this winter, eh...! I can offer my place to somebody for free. Sorry for the last minute info, I really though I would be able to make it... I'm soooo frustrated!!!!
Anyway, I wish you good luck tomorrow, you may need it
Of course you can! At least someone will make good use of it. I will email Dr Robert and inform him about you taking my place and send you a message with my phone number just in case. Have a great run tomorrow!
P.S I can't find your email in your profile... If any questions, just write it here. I've already sent email to Dr Robert, hope it's enough.
I've just been out marking the Leith Hill Tower part of the course with my father (81) - it's like a winter wonderland up there. Hopefully it wil freeze overnight. It'll be cracking if it does.
Mind how you go!
No doubt it'll be a great challenge, to say the least!!! It won't be an easy one for me, with a condition called Raynaud's Syndrome, which will leave me feeling pretty cold, no matter what I wear. "Tough enough"? Ehm..... I shall find out soon enough!!!
It's snowing heavily in Cambs now and it's not melting. I do hope that I will have a good journey down south. It would normally take 2 1/2 hours but with the weather like that it'll take much longer now. Hopefully, the roads will be clear....
Good luck everyone on your way to the race - drive safely!
Yes really enjoyed it - did six minutes faster than my last attempt four years ago, so well pleased. Managed not to go off to fast this time, so was able to enjoy it, especially the second half, it's nice passing people all the way to the finish. Great marshalling, full of encouragement and smiles, also thanks Dr Robert for organising...
You're all very welcome!
