I was looking at this one as well, but may change my mind having heard your comments. Other options I was looking at are Loch Ness, Abingdon or New Forest. Can't afford to pay a fortune to travel to event so that may remove Loch Ness from the list. What's the New Forest like? I have heard that the lap after the half marathoners leave is more multi terrain?
I dislocated my knee doing judo many years ago when i was about 15 years old. I seem to remember through the blur of "why is my knee cap round there" and "owww that hurts", a physio who just happened to be watching grabbed my kneecap and re-positioned it correctly. I was x-rayed and strapped with elastic/crepe bandages which i was meant to keep on for 10 weeks and TOTAL REST. Being the active type, and living close to a beach and it being summer, I used to limp or beg a lift to the beach 'to watch the sea', but in reality I removed the bandages and went swimming gently in the sea from about 3 weeks afterwards. I then strapped up my knee again and went home.... my mum guessed what I had been doing as my suntan extended the full length of my leg, instead of having a white patch in the middle. However, I did recover, I did continue with judo/ karate and took up running later in life and have had no problems. There is a future for you!
Has anyone done this with a Garmin and can confirm how close to 15 miles it actually is? I've only trained up to a half marathon distance recently and concerned about those final few miles up to and beyond 15.
anyone seen the results yet? Had a look on the Folksworth 15 website which says results are now on line, but couldn't find them.
Great marshalling, lovely limos from car park to Race HQ and back, quiet changing room for after race. I'm sure they cranked up that hill at mile 14 between the first and second lap, and that wind.... did you see those cyclists being pushed up the hill by the wind without pedalling??
