Rosie Swales running her 27th consecutive marathon this saturday (the last one!) will be on the Wales marathon course this Saturday.  If anyone would like to run with her, even for a mile, please let me know.

 27 consecutive marathons! ouch!!!!

have you entered the marathon?

No longer have time nor the inclination to train for those sort of distances since getting involved with Clarby FC to tell you the truth.

I now only run out of football season,as all my free time in season is spent plotting the downfall of the likes of Tenby FC

What so of time are you hoping for?

5 to 6 is now my comfortable range,happy with that 2 or 3 times week.

Having said that we are doing a sponsored walk in July from Mynchlog-ddu to Rose Bush over the Preselli's which is 12 miles & one of the mothers of my U12's has asked me to run it with her rather than walk it.

Finish @ the Tafarn Sinc for a bit of light refreshment & we thought if we run,we get there sooner & have more drinking time

Better pull my finger out a bit !

Glad I spotted this thread.

I'm signed up but with little knowledge about the route or terrain.  Had a look on the map but a postage stamp sized picture of Tenby doesn't mean much to me - any advice on what the route is like?

yes its undulating but there is a garmin profile going up in the next week or so.  The hills are not long just come one after another in the middle section!

Hill wise nothing to serious in & around Tenby.

I would imagine that the Narberth Rd is a bad as it gets,8iron??

anyone see the wales marathon on TV with Rosie swales.  She started out running 26 marathon in 26 days and chose the wales marathon as the first course.  Then after running it announced she would run 27 so that she could come back and do it again!  Now there's a recommendation fo you!!

Hi 8iron,

I love Tenby & the surrounding areas & am interested in signing up for the race, do you have any ideas about drink stations, toilets etc out on the course?

Thanks very much,
