reduced to 27miles? whys that? are you going to lure me into something trecherous....*ominous music sounds*
T rex....your account of the LDWA event really made me laugh so much,thank you!
erm, and where is this event?
That was in 2007 when it was 32 miles. And that was exactly what happened at the finish. I'm usually only a midpack runner so it was pleasing to come in at the sharp end. But the event only had a handful of runners so it doesn't really mean a lot. That's it - showboating is the thing not to do.
At various places within this forum are many accounts of things that seem to happen to me in races, and long training runs, often a source of entertainment.
Torfaen (mostly). Starts in Machen (which isn't in Torfaen).
Well, you've got to have all the small details right for that perfect race ...
I've done that marathon once and the 50K twice. I get bad asthma symptoms going out in the cold in winter so not sure I'm going to be able to race again at that time of year. In training I wear a buff over my mouth but you can't really race like that.
A briiliant event is the LDWA Midsummer Marathon on The Malvern Hills in Worcestershire ! Our club the Malvern Joggers normally have about 20 runners do this one its a much more civallised way to run a Marathon, drink stations on route stop for lunch in Ledbury then run back over every peak and trough of the hills 9 miles to claim your evening meal all this for about £7 its a steal !! and its brilliant!!
Im busy that weekend but will be doing next year.
I think everyone should be posting the races they are going to do prganised by LDWA!
I am doing the Brimingham Canal Canter/
