Thanet 20 Mile

Great race!  Pleased to come 5th in 2:02:49 - was on for sub 2hr (and 3rd) until about mile 15 when the wheels come off badly.

The organisation and the marshalling were top notch - a really good job by all!  Not so fond of the course though - few too many hills and sharp turns for my liking.  The section off-road though was far worse - rutted, uneven and a right royal pain in the backside.  Is there no way it could be avoided next year? It was unfitting for such an otherwsie brilliant race.


NDW50 2013

I'm in - doing this one, the SDW50 before and the NDW100 too. 

Another minimlaist, but not as minimal as you, B2B! I train and race in the NB Minimus range.

WiB - thanks for the feedback on the course - most helpful.

Ran my age to celebrate my birthday today - 41M on NDW.  Felt strong t/out and had plenty in the tank at end.  Definitely could've done 50.  So that's not my race pace I guess...

Never raced a 20M before, so we'll see.  Marathon pace I know - I can gear down and get it done. Half marathon pace I know too - can push that pace okay.  I reckon 20M is a tricky one to pace correctly to get the best time possible.  We'll see...

Got my number! Would love to say I'm looking forward to it, but...

I agree with Tiago.  I'm wearing MT110s for the SDW50 - used to minimalist shoes on the road (MT10s, MT20s, MR00s).

Wow! I was under the impression it was a fast course - doesn't look that fast with that elevation! May have to review my target time...

Ed, is the new course going to be faster / slower / same?  Any idea of elevation for the course?



Posted: 27/01/2013 at 22:25

Latter.  Yeah, probably won't do any further other than running my age (41) on my birthday next month.  Main goal is the NDW100 so the 50s will be building me up to that.
