Hi there - I am very interested in doing this event but am a glass wearer.....but not for running if i can help it as just follow the masses usually. I don't know the area at all so looked at your route description and Google Maps just to get an idea. It looks like a good event and have seen lots of positive comments re it.....but I am worried about getting lost as really do NOT know area at all. I know I could take my specs with me but was wondering if there will be any signage at all ????

Many thanks.

Thanks RR.......I have looked at the run instructions and followed them as best I can on Google Maps.......I wear glasses to read but don't carry them when running, so, that was my concern. Would like to give it a go so thanks for that.

Stephen - really sorry to hear of your medal theft. I had my Vic Clapham with me from 2013 as I wanted it to be there to hopefully meet my back to back and bronze. It did meet them thank goodness and I got quite a few comments about being mad for bringing it back....I never thought anything of it but when I left my room, I put it in my room safe. I was staying at City Lodge. I though it was overkill but there you go.....I hope you get it all sorted.

Well done all those who did SDW100....true lunacy.....but impressive.

I have been back running and am doing Southdowns Marathon this coming Saturday - nice and gentle mind.

Hope you are all well and just about recovered - those who ar einjured I hope you get back out there soon.

5k for me last Sunday - club league run...first run back and felt great if a tad creaky, then a little 6 miler last night over a local hill. First 'solo' run for about two weeks !

Thanks Jwheezy - IMO the Up run is not quite as tough as the Down.....IMO.

Nope - not me. I'm a woman of my word and said no more after getting my B2B this year and bronze which I missed last year. I will however, lurk on here just to keep tabs on you all. It has been an amazing experience but I will gracefully bow out. Am looking at Two Oceans hopefully for 2016 and have my long suffering, non-running man almost signed up for the idea as this time, he's coming with me !!!

I wish you all well, have made some great friends and I know we will see each other on the marathon circuit. Onwards and upwards for me to get to 100 marathons...only 46 to do......PAH ! That'll keep me busy enough.
