I ran this one last year. Excellent event and very well organised. This year it is my turn to be one of the marshals, I will give every runner a good cheer and encourage. This one of the best, well organised and friendly half marathon which is suitable for all level of runners.
Hello everybody, I ran the Croydon Ultra todayand it was blooming hot ( 30degc) which made it a bit of a challenge especially this was my first Ultra distance. I really enjoyed the course which include the very pretty undiluted Vangard Way and the route 21 cycle path toward Beckenham and Ladywell. All the check point had plenty of water and food so you can fuel up. After the race there is an option to recover by making use of the shower facilites and treat yourself to a beer at the club house and bliss that cool pint of fosters went down a treat, it was well deserved. Just want to say thank you to Ian for organising this and to all the volunteers who help out today. As I mentioned before running in this heat was very challenging but this has not put me off in taking part again next year. This was my first ultra marathon and what a way to start.
I enjoyed watching you guys running on Sunday, I was helping out at the 25 miles point. Not ran the London Marathon since 2010 I will try my luck for the 2014 ballot place.
For some of you marathon addicts, you may want to try the North Kent road runners marathon which takes place on Saturday 1st Jun, you should have recovered by then and If you are chasing for Good For Age time place for the London Marathon 2014 this will be your last chance before the July deadline.
