Portsmouth Coastal Waterside Marathon

I'm doing the 50k this year after enjoying the marathon last year. I love the idea of the staggered start. Should allow us all to be mixed up on the way back. I might need the help to drag me to the finish.

Last long one today. 22 miles. Fab run, saw a wild boar for the first time. Weather was perfect and after 13.1 just got quicker and quicker. Great confidence boosting run. I hope everyone else is fit and looking forward to three weeks time.

Is it time to wake this forum up again? Surely there must be a few people out there doing it. Anyone done it before who have any tips?

Thanks Muttley. I think I'll go for road shoes unless there's lots of rain running up to the event.

Thanks Millsy. Good point with the posting date. Hopefully one or two people will cotton on to the thread. How much is off-road? Is it worth wearing trial or road shoes?

Looks like I'm on my own then. I might get a decent finishing place for once.

Wow, that was a long way. Finished in 14hrs 31mins. (Very pleased with that as my target was 16hours.) great finish with all the glow sticks on the floor. The organisation was first rate. I know it's expensive but you do feel it's a great entry point into ultras for someone who is used to big city marathons.

I don't feel too bad today. I can at least walk up and down stairs.

hopefully everyone else had good experience.

LOL. This time next week I'll be walking like an 80 year old cowboy. Did my last longish run 11 miles this morning. Must say it felt great. Can't believe that I now consider 11 miles to be a little run!

CotswaldRunner: pacing is going to be so difficult at the start. I know I'll get caught up running at everyone else's pace. MUST stay focused. 

I'm to do one more run on Tuesday then that's it.

Come on everyone, we're nearly there!
