No real training since GUCR at end of May, but have entered New Forest Mara as something to train for in the short term and pace a colleague at sub4, and i always enjoy pacing, some awesome running being done by you guys+girls. Land of plod here at the mo.
No picked up (White 3 hundred and something), no queue at all, expo a little thin on the ground, but will grow I am sure. Walked for miles with family around Brighton and the lanes visiting way too many shops, so perfect prep for tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great race tomorrow. Happy Running.
E-mail.!!!!!!! I have not received an e-mail. Maybe I am doing the Richmond - Oxford route on my own, and everyone else is doing a revised (drier) option. I have e-mailed James @ Centurion Running, so will hopefully get the e-mail. Should I worry!!!
Hi Cupcake. I have run it twice. You will need some grip and toe protection for the steep rocky parts, but also some cushioning as there is about 9miles of tarmac involved. I used a pair of Pegasus Trail +28 which seemed a good compromise on grip/protection/cushioning. If dry i would be confident using my Brooks Adrenaline road shoes, dont think racing flats would be advisable. And also I think the organisers say trail shoes are mandantory kit (this may have changed).
Enjoy the race, really stunning, and tough, just remember to keep the sea on your left
