18 miles today after parkrun. Slightly concerned as was knackered at the end. Run was 418 metres but were some very steep climbs involved and quite a bit off road. Would someone mind having a look at my run profile, never done SNOD before and am slightly concerned as that has another 500 odd metres attached to it.

Got 23 next week, not sure how to go about that elevation wise. Had 2 gels today but it was my legs that were tired. Think mile 12 ish depleted me as it was very steep and off road.

Not one for panicking but today's run really did take it out of me

Hi all, did a 16 miler today with 335 metres of climb. Mileage is down this year compared with others but have been racing a lot more, be interesting to see what difference it makes.


Question is in my longest run (23m) how many more metres would you put into the run? Live in a hilly area so hills aren't an issue. Should I train to near the 800m mark ?

Popping over to the Motherland to do the N Wales Half on Sunday, anyone else running it ?

Anyone know what gels/drinks are used on the course as would like to train with them if possible ?


Thank you

Cheers Brer, the only other question is re body cover. Do all my runs in shorts, is carrying extra clothing essential ? Managed 13.1 yesterday with 300m climb, so decent enough start.

Does anyone follow a specific Snowdon marathon plan or just a normal one interspersed with hills on the long run and some hill drills in the week ?

i live in a hilly area and a lot of runs include hills anyway. Most of our midweek summer races are hill monsters anyway, so am hoping they'll be enough.

i figure for my 1st Snod it'll just be a case of run/walking the hills and simply getting around. Can't wait

Jeez, you guys are incredible, Badwater, multiple marathons, I was chuffed doing 2 last year.

Just come back from a very cold 10 miler, glad to be home. Refusing to drop the shorts and t shirt yet though. What spring maras are people doing ?
