No 1417 - first time for this race.
Training totally stuffed by repeat colds.
Can anyone whos done it describe how hilly it is ?
Lovely and undulating till the dreaded 11th mile. I had a rotton throat infection last year and was unable to train properly. 2007 was a dream however and my first Coniston. The weather was perfect. Metcheck is telling me there are going to be 20 mph northerly winds which means running against it in the return leg. Conserve your energy in prep for th 11th mile. Last year I shuffled it and added only 10 mins onto the time I got in 2007. Was proper poorly when I got back but soon recovered with some gorgeous strawberry beer at the Black Bull. Hope you're feelin better Graham.
