Looks like they were understandably quite lenient with the 6:30 cut off time yesterday as looking at results pretty much half the field were over that time. Really fancy doing the half (sorry hardcore marathoners) next year so will be keeping an eye on when entries open. It does already say registration to open soon for TBC date in July 2016.
In other news I've signed up for my first Ultra! The Vale Coastal Ultra 32 miler next April. Can't wait.
Training sort of started for Snowdonia marathon but only around 13 miles on LSR's so far. Brecon 10 miler planned for this weekend then get into some proper mileage on the LSR's after that.
Question for the Snowdon regulars.What's the advice on trainers? Get away with the usual road marathon trainers, trail definitely required, some sort of trail / road hybrid?
I've watched the highlights programs from the past few years and it always suprises me how little off road there is.. or is this because it's easier to film the road sections and they miss a lot of the off road? Any idea roughly how much is road / off road mileage or percentage wise?
Obviously asking early enough so that if a purchase of new trainers is required then I can start training in them now or soon anyway.
Super flat Swansea Half Marathon for me last weekend. Doing a hilly trail session with club tonight - around 1,500 feet elevation over 6 miles. Only realised this week that Snowdon Weekend is also the semi-finals of the Rugby World Cup. First semi-final is a 4pm on the Saturday so have already told club mates they best be back in 5 hours so we can all get to a pub in time. Of course, not as important if Wales are not playing and given the group of death that may very well be the case.
