Snowdonia Marathon 2016

Posted: 14/03/2016 at 21:38

Hi all, after missing last year's race through work, I'm lookimg forward to running this fantastic marathon again. 


Loved the race back in 2014, but it wasn't just the marathon, it was the whole experience. By far and away, the best race I've ever done. 


Cannot wait

Brilliant value, much prefer not to have another useless medal and keep the price down.


loved it today. Proper racing. 10/10

Peter. It's probably down to people who enter in haste, say as a New Years Resolution  (for Snowdon) or getting caught up in the drama of watching London, but do not realise the dedication of training that is needs to run a marathon. The craze of celebrities 'running' a marathon doesn't help either.

Has anyone run Loch Ness before ? Possibly looking at daunting (for me) prospect of both within a month of each other.

Hey guys,

I realise this is the thread for next years SNOD but I figured that most of you on here did this years one anyway!

I finally got round to writing my blog for this years race which is split across 3 parts. Safe to say I've had better preparation for marathons before!



Harshad, this is a great blog, especially love the 'will Harshad make it' endings to every segment, bit like 70s Batman.

Like you, I'll be entering again this year. Last year was my first and lOver it. Hope you have a better training experience this year.
