Snowdonia Marathon 2017

Posted: 05/01/2017 at 13:26

Nice list already, T Rex. Put me down for the double again please (hoping I actually make it to Llanberis this year). It'll be 2 weeks after Round Rotherham again (perfect) and a week before White Rose Ultra (perfect warmup for it).

Last night I started to fill the race diary in earnest. First tranche cost £220. I gave up counting after that.

Greetings peeps and Happy New Year. Well, if it wasn't for me accidentally leaving my mobile phone switched on last night and UDS texting me at 07:20 this morning, I wouldn't have got in. With bed beckoning I totally forgot about cranking up the computer at midnight. I must have just squeaked through. Thanks UDS!

For those who didn't get in, fear not, you will. Many people have to withdraw and places become available.

Now I just need to get some fitness back and banish the habitual PWs. Less fell-racing and more Ultras, methinks.

Paula, good running at the Waltz. You finished just after me. Give it another mile and I reckon you would have caught me!

I used to do that every year until you changed the date. I've never been back since due to clashes and inconvenience (Sunday's never a good day with work the next day). It's a shame because I always enjoyed it so much, especially the tipple at the naughty corner.

Thanks for getting the list started, T Rex. I think I was supposed to be down for the double as well.

I'd love to do that SNOD Trail Marathon. It looks to be 'right up my street'. If it wasn't only 5 days before the Lakeland 100 my name would be on the list. (Sadly it would probably provide a more appropriate build-up to UTMB as well.)

Last night I put my name on the list for the Three Peaks Fell Race now that it doesn't clash with The Fellsman for the first time in a long time. Fingers crossed that they let me in. They have quirky entry requirements, one of which is completion of a road marathon in under 3:20. Dream on, why don't you?

Oh dear DE. That's putting me off.

Daz, remind me where the VC race route goes. I'm sure I had that highlighted to run a few years ago then it stopped and I never got the opportunity.

I'll see you at Kinder Trial. I can't wait for the updated list to appear so I can see who else is going.

BritNick - I would be so glad if you did the 10Peaks Brecon Beacons.  I really would like your view of it, how you go about running it, and in particular what sort of time you can do.  My best time has been 22:59:xx, which seems very slow for only 55 miles ...

Are you concerned about post UTMB recovery or work commitments in September?

Sorry T Rex I didn't answer this before. I'm concerned about recovery post-UTMB before taking on another Ultra. 10 Peaks Brecon Beacons is only 2 weeks after UTMB. Even if I feel back to normal I know I'd slow to a crawl prematurely. From what you say, is it a navigational challenge? Don't they issue a route description?

Yes Rob, it's Snowdonia Marathon. I don't know where SNOD originated but it's a few years old now. T Rex will enlighten us I'm sure.

60 miles? That's a nice healthy distance for a first Ultra.
