After the Ultra last year I'm back for the half this year, bring it on !!!!
It's an amazing course and so easy to get to from London, I ran the half course last weekend and i was in more pain after it than after the CTS sussex marathon a few weeks. It's a stinker but it hasn't put me off.
Cheers to Dr Rob for putting on a great race, to all my fellow racers and marshalls for the encouragement provided. I was one of the marathon virgins at the start with a 12k mountain race my longest endeavour on my legs, so this was indeed a baptism of fire. I seen it through to the end and the sense of achievement finishing was amazing even if I was feeling a bit light headed after it. I was 8 minutes outside my 6hr target, maybe if I didn't have to lie on the ground a few times I could have achieved it.
This race was just what I was looking for as I find tarmac a bit monotonous and I got 4 miles extra free as well, thanks.
I'll definitely be back for the next Trionium event.
Thats some pain in the arse , looking forward to Saturday now. I know I shouldn't be considering what we have to do but it's nice to explain to people that ask just how difficult this is compared to 26 miles on flat tarmac. Best of luck to all full and half runners
Ran the half course yesterday so see what it was like. Haven't ran many hills in the last few months but it was tough. Now just have to double the distance and race it.The course would need to dry out an awful lot before anyone tries it in normal runners. Now I must get practising on those 300 steps in Hampstead station.
