Paul platt... I've just checked those results and mine are wrong too. I started right at the front of the pen A, and the wife even saw me go over the finish line on 3:03 on the clock. yet the results have me down a full minute slower. Ah well! Got my garmin data.

Well done everyone. I thought the organisation was spot on really. And the support really kept me going at the end. 

I had a nightmare. It's my 4th full marathon and I've never had to dig so deep in my life. 

I made a schoolboy error, aim was sub3 but I set off too quickly, hitting halfway in 1:26 and slowly but surely the wheels came crashing off. Also had stomach problems.I have never been so glad to see a portaloo as I was making my way back to old Trafford. Was seriously close to shitting myself lol. 

I was such a wreck and still am really. My time was 3:03 according to the clock. Gutted I missed out on a PB but it's another medal and a nice tshirt I can wear with pride.

Well done again everyone

The Cardiff Ultra 50

Why oh why have I stumbled across this race...I'm so tempted.

Here's where I am...

This would be my first ultra.

I did 2 marathons last year (Wolverhampton and Snowdonia)

i did Blackpool mara 3 weeks ago and I'm running Manchester mara on Sunday. Im in decent shape. This year I've trained for marathons, regularly running 50mile p/w. no ultra specific training as I've never really considered an ultra untill spotting this....

Could I FINISH this race which is only 3 weeks away or am i mad. I've no experience, total newbie to anything beyond 26.2mile.

Tips/opinions welcomed.....

Agree with red panda, I like to split it up in my head into 10km splits

4 lots of 10k with a little bit on the end lol. 10...20...30...40... Collapse!

Gotta be an optimist not a pessimist.. Getting to 16 mile and telling yourself there's still over 10 mile to get through wont do you any favours.

God I remember last year. I was doing my first mara in Stratford and they called it off on the startline! We ran a half instead. I was gutted after months of training! lol

Well I'm wolves so we won't even go there. clowns.

Nice 7 miles done before work, beautiful morning last 5 miler on Thursday then that's it for me. Always take 48hrs rest before a long race, always seems to work for me anyway.

Getting excited now!

Don't know mate, I've also qualified for gfa hopefully a couple of weeks ago. I'll keep checking the website?

I'd be gutted if after a few years of ballot rejections, they move the goalposts for gfa.
