LOVED this race. Tough, but stunning. Will be back next year with more hills in my legs
Tough for me but pleased I finished. Chip time.
Good course, enjoyed it. Will blog later.
much lumpier than i thought it was going to be but most enjoyable - now that it's over!
That was a tough one, my 2nd marathon and stupidly had hoped to PB here as didn't know alot about the route. Underfoot was very stony in many places which after a while made my feet really hurt and the hills!!!!! Anyway, took 22 seconds off my previous PB so still a small improvement over a tough course so I'm quite pleased overall!!
I just wanna finish it!
Really stunning venue. Tough and undulating but glad I took it on. Such a mixture of terrain and gradients.
Lovely route. Found the undulations pretty tough after Snowdon last week. Think I must be getting too old for this lark , but still glad I did it. Some would say they weren't hills , but to me a speed bump is a hill when I'm three quarters of the way round a marathon . Legs were shot at the end........ That's my lot now. Finished.
Lovely trail run - great scenery ,but tough with hills all the way right up to the end and cattle grids to negotiate!
Great start with a 1:45 first half, loved the Peninsula first time round, just my sort of thing. Then a hamstring / piriformis niggle that I'd been nursing decided to play up.... a pain in the bum quite literally. Was tight 2nd time around the Peninsula and plain agony for the last 8.5 miles home. Ouch! But loved the course and will go back sometime and have another go.
Rutland Water marathon race. Started out ok, sort of average, but got horribly slow about mid-way through and walked that last 12 miles or so, was miserable, been racing so much lately, marathons nearly every weekend, and 82 miles next weekend. Just a race to get another finish.
Oh those little hills eh? And cattle grids - lovely.
Great event though - superb scenery!!
