Trionium Greensand Marathon

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 19:59

Just to let everyone know, the 2015 will be the last Greensand Marathon - until 2017. In 2016, just the Greensand half marathon will take place. The Greensand marathon will take place in odd-numbered years, alternating with The Picnic, which will take place in 2016, and which takes place every two years in even-numbered years.

Organising one hard marathon a year is enough for anyone!

So, if you want to enter the Greensand Marathon and don't want to have to wait two years until the next one, enter in 2015!

Stef, so pleased to hear it wasn't a break, but it had already swelled up nearly to the size of a tennis ball when I saw you on the hill, so it was clearly serious. I think you have a story to tell from yesterday... See you at the Knacker Cracker/Knicker Knacker, I hope!

In fact, I've arranged for the servery to open early and tea and coffee will be available for all runners.

Good luck everyone - have a great run!

Ah... tea is up to you guys... Don't think that the server is going to be open for us! Bring a flask!

Agree with fuzzy mike... they're not needed, but it would be a good test to see if you get on with yours (chafing etc).

I read in last week's New Scientist that there's a possibility of brewing cocaine in the future, using modified strains of yeast. A Camelbak with that brew will pack a punch.

Remember that you have to do the Mole Steps twice and the Eiger steps upwards only once... but even given your numbers Brian, there are the best part of 720 steps (and that's not counting the other six ascents that you also have to make that don't have steps...).

The new course map is now up on the web site...
