I'll be signing up after xmas, was hoping to do the picnic, am i correct in thinking it's not happening in 2010?

Yeah, come on folks, don't listen to Dr Robert's hype, this one's flat and fast, definite pb course

he he he Muttley, you are a norty dog!

Next Picnic in 2011 (but if it's a tough marathon you are after, try the Greensand Marathon, 17 October 2010).

Yep, I've registered.  Missed out over the last 2 years for different reasons but looking forward to the madness in 2010 !!!

The Greensand is a doddle compared to The Picnic.
30/11/2009 at 20:10

Oh no! Not this again already!!

 Got to do it again as I want to do it in less than 3 hours! (3:04 last time!)

Just signed up to the Greensand Marathon 2010! Read the reviews, sounds like a great event with good atmosphere and support. Got hooked on trail running since trying out cross country this season and have been looking at some trail events. Signing up to the Return of the Black Death Run too (10miles trail event in May in Somerset).

I might just have to do this one as well. The goal - to shave 5 mins or so off this year's time to go sub 2hrs 30. My typical time in an "ordinary" half marathon is about 1hr 50 at present.

Wow, this one must be really tough! I'm about your pace in a road half, Muttley - is atmosphere good at this race? I go to runs on my own, no company so comradeship is an important consideration for motivation.
01/12/2009 at 20:19

The atmosphere is fantastic! Everyone is realy friendly and supportive - I went on my own but met up with loads of people!

Not sure if it'll be a little bit different without all the Picnicer's on the course though.

Definately a race worth doing! But really tough! (HM PB 2.05, Munro PB 3.04!!!!)

Thanks, Liliaicha. I'm up for a challenge. Since my first ever XC race with my club this season (we're in the Surrey League), I'm enjoying trail & hills greatly. I'm not concern with PB, my aim in any run is always to get pass the finish line well within the time limit and in a reasonably upright position 
01/12/2009 at 20:39
Just entered! No going back now.
01/12/2009 at 21:16
What Lilliaicha said ... this event is a challenge rather than a race. Having fun (?) and supporting each other is the order of the day. Start training now - if you have a 50-storey skyscraper nearby, I suggest running up and down the stairs half a dozen times to simulate the Eiger steps
01/12/2009 at 23:07

Hehe..I might do just that, am going to Singapore in a couple of weeks and staying with a relative whose flat is on the 16th floor!

Damn, I'm tempted by this now having just completed my first Knacker Cracker.  I'll have to have a think.

 Definitely never doing the Picnic though - can't be bothered doing normal marathons any more so I'm certainly not going to consider one with a stupid amount of hills in it

02/01/2010 at 16:25

Yep, me too - the kc was hard but really satisfying - helped by a good downhill finish after 'those' steps

I'm not remotely interested in doing a full marathon, and cerainly not the picnic -  what I think should have been called the 'box-hill ball-breaker'

I feel obliged to have a go at a half around box hill though, as I had so much in reserve yesterday I sprinted all the way downhill to the finish ! (Or was that just not enough energy to resist gravity ?)

04/01/2010 at 08:15

ok i'm entered as well now.

will be my 4th attempt. must be something good about it to keeping coming back for more despite the pain. this year i plan to do just a bit of training on the downhills beforehand to avoid my legs falling off during the race.

Hi Doctor Robert,

 I entered a few races last week and I can't remember if one of them was this race. I'm only 53 but my brain is already suffering. Could you please check the entry list as I would love to do this race this year.

Last year I ran the Box Hill Fell race, Meon Valley plod, Milland Trail half and a very wet misty Beachy Head so it will be interesting to compare the MM with them.

 Thanks and apologies
