Excellent again but really tough, especially with the wind. The only thing that would have improved it would have been a cup of tea in the closing stages.

I wonder why there are no longer any ratings for this event. Do they get deleted after a certain time? I certainly posted one after I did it, many relating to problems in getting cars out and food and drink running out, long queues and then being told there was nothing left. I said I would never do it again  and with the current entry fee, I wil certainly stand by that decision.

Never gets mentioned during the London Marathon coverage, despite Paula's pitstop a few years ago.

I wish I had known that it could be such a good laxative! Could have avoided some close calls or pit stops.



Have you ever been last in an event?

I did come last in a fell race but I slipped on the descent and had really bad cramp. Limped on feeling that I had a huge bruise on my calf. However, there were 2 DNF and a DQ.

Is anyone travelling from Cheltenham for this because I'm looking for a lift. I was entered for the Cotswold Race the Train but that's been cancelled due to lack of entries. I can change my train tickets but not get a refund. I don't want to waste them so I thought this would be a good alternative.

Results a bit slow. Before the bus left for the journey back to Newcastle, we were told they'd be up Sunday evening. Just a bit curious about how many ran and my position.

Very impressed although I did see more signs for drinks than actual drink stations. Excellent work by the marshals especially at those tricky right turns. Slower time than I had hoped for but my right leg went wobbly at 19 miles but pleased to pick it up again. Seeing Bamburgh Castle really helped, what a magnificent setting to finish a race!

If the weather is as bad as the forecast I've just seen, I wonder if any races will go ahead this weekend. Gale force winds and torrential rain across the country!

Night time marathon - what to eat and when

Posted: 02/10/2013 at 08:28

I am intrigued by the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso. I'm just wondering about eating on the day when the race doesn't start until the evening. For short evening races, I get away with coffee and a sticky bun late in the afternoon but that won't get me through 26 miles. Any advice about eating strategies?
