Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

This event is listed on these dates:

went out too fast, and was caught out by the big gap in drink stations between 7m and 15m
Found this tough going. Didn't carbo load and haven't done many long runs in the last couple of months. The weather was perfect for a summer marathon. Quite cool, dry but enough sun to pick up a sun tan. Ran the fist 10k too fast but it felt comfortable. Calf muscles were starting to tire and began getting stomach pains. The hill through the field at 12-13 miles seem to never end and I didn't even think of running up it. At 15 miles I had to do something about my stomach and headed off into the woods. It seemed to do the trick and the rest brought back a spring in my step up until about 21 miles where cramp started to settle in to my quads and hamstrings. From there on in it was at least flat and managed to get to finish with a walk/run stategy (the only way I could do it).
The distance turned about to be a extra mile long. Even though it was hard work I really enjoyed it and the checkpoints were superb and frequent.
Marathon running is definitely the best way to get rid of a hangover
A lovely route, I really enjoyed it. A lot of road for a trail run, I was wearing trail shoes and ended up with very sore feet. I think a few arrows had been removed in the last couple of miles, got a bit lost, ended up running round waitrose carpark. Would def do this again.
Training run for Berlin so going to take it v easy. Really scenic route and enjoyed this as a training run for Berlin. Fantastic organisation and brilliant support from all those who helped out.
Jogging Jon
This will be marathon 8 of 2008 for me. I will taking it slowly as only 2 weeks after last and I am planning to do 4 in September. I will be wearing my fetch shirt which has my name front and back. If you spot me please say hello.

This one was hard, I run most of the race with an injury to my left foot, still I am happy that I finished.
Joe Hawk
Ended up not running this properly and went the wrong way (Garmin says 28.46). So deleted and re-entered
The Plodder
Just doing the 30k route
bit of a mess. Too far too soon really! Nice to run in a crowd. Ran most of the way with Craig82, Pete, Andy (Deadbeat) and Pat
