A hilly course so will not PB arounmd here. UPDATE: It is indeed a hilly course Pleased with my time being it was wet and windy as well as bliddy hilly. Annoyed my Garmin was misbehaving so i couldn't see how much climbing there was as it died around 2-3 miles in. I think i'll ignore the Full marathon as one lap of that is sufficient.
I did not expect to do well at this race as I am rubbish at hills, but as it was a part of my club championship I thought I would have a go. I was pleasantly surprised with my time of 1:41:55 & my 2nd place in the ladies race too.
The weather was not kind to us at all. It rained heavily in the latter part of the race & it was quite windy in places. The course it a very scenic one & in a strange kind of way enjoyable too!!
The hills are big bad monsters, but the last down hill is dreadful, it kills your knees & your toes too. The course is a matter of survival, times are totally irrelevant.
We as a club had 9 people doing the Half & 2 doing the Full & we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Rod the organiser is a star, well done.
