Hi all. Just popped on to wish everyone all the best for Sat. Sadly I will not be taking my place this year for SNOD number 9 as my much loved mother-in-law passed away very suddenly a couple of weeks ago and my place is with Mrs LG at this difficult time.
I will be back for 2014 as this his the race highlight of the year. Have a great day round the mountain and enjoy those well earned post race beers. I will be thinking of you all and will keep my fingers crossed you get the soaking you are all hoping for.
Cheers GW saved me an email. You have chosen a good one to start with. Might not have the crowds to cheer you on but the views more than make up for it. As for your blisters I too have had a few problems of that nature and find that using tape on the areas prone to blisters does the trick.
Sorry, no graph but it is flat/slightly downhill all the way with one very minor incline which you will be doing well to even notice if my memory serves me right.
It was a bit crowded last year and I think they have increased the entry limit this year so it will be cosy as we only have the width of a railway track. It did thin out quite quickly though and after half a mile wasn't an issue.
