In terms of running a marathon along side the DIY Half IM, I have no problems doing this but will prob only do this on one day
As most people have finished on the half IM course by 6 and the people running the marathon are going to be speedy types and it would be good fun for them to be on the run with other people I would be looking at starting the stand alone marathon at say 1:30 - 2
I was thinking just doing it as personal thing that happened to coincide with the HIM and take the liberty of using the feed stations. Plan was to support in the morning and then start at 1:00 (Saturday). This is all dependent on how the training goes.
Erm, there is drinks station every 1.5 miles which is better than most marathons
Yes, my mistake, I was thinking that if I started while everyone was still on the bike I'd be running the first half alone and could utilise the bike feed station. I forgot on the second half there'd be other people on the run course and HQ/T2 would then also be a feed station.
As I am no longer swimming or cycling I was considering just running at the 2016 D.I.Y Festival of Triathlon Piracy, I was also contemplating a spring marathon next year, so then I got to thinking, "why not combine the two?".
So first things first, I designed a logo
So if I get clearance from Silent Assassin Triathlon inc. there's 28 weeks to do some training. 8 laps, 26.2 miles, 410m of climbing (that's less than Chester) and drinks station every 3.2 miles. Perfect!
