Really looking forward to this one (yes, I'm mad!!!)
Hoping to get in under 5 hours (but the weather forecast isn't looking pretty!)
PB by over an hour. Very wet and windy conditions. Miles 22 to 25 were slow
Lets go sub 3hrs this year!.............yeah right!!, going well until 10miles, then my calfs had other ideas. Plodded on until the end, not my best performance but glad to finish. Perhaps running in cardiff did'nt help.......but theres always next yr.
3rd time of running...............nutter.
Fine up to the 21 mile mark and on course for a good PB and then legs cramped along with stomach to make the last five a truly horrendous cold survival ordeal, but I did it.
Pos - 219th. My Garmin said 3h41m - damn timing chips!
I'm in. God knows what to expect, but i'm thinking hills!! UPDATE i absolutely loved it. Felt comfortable all the way, and wish i'd pushed a bit more between 21 and 24 as i might have sneaked under 4.30 then.
The most successful part of this was my finish time prediction ! A very tough day
Weather was horrendous, gale force winds and heavy rain!!!
Very wet, very windy and 1hr 19 mins quicker than previous..whaawhooo
My 4th time round. Hope to have something 'left in the tank' for the last hill at WaunFawr. Last year was 1.37 / 2.03 split! #421
The toughest Marathon in the UK, i will be happy to just finish!!!
runs with monkeys
Just aiming to endure and enjoy. Update: I did both in spades. Even ran up that last hill. I'll be back to do this again!
hopefully will be better prepared over the mileage than was for edinburgh ... but factor the hills against that ...
hell that was hard work. really really hard work.
just got a PB in Abingdon so not going to very fresh for this. - felt not at all bad. I think the wind and the rain and the hills distracted me from the aching in my legs. Very tough but loads of fun.
A splendid event. Tricky course (the last 4 miles are particularly challenging) and we had truly horrible weather today. I'm delighted with the way I ran and with my time, but suspect I may take a week to thaw out.
Snowdonia Marathon - Going great as a paced run until 21 miles where the wind in my back that was ferreezing the hairs off my legs (and meant my calves were bloody freezing) meant that I was fighting cramp for 3 miles, and missed running up the hill from Waunfawr - which I was REALLY looking forward to! Strangely the off-road descent was fine - And I picked up everyone who'd gone past me in the preceding couple of miles - and then some! Cracking run in with a youngster over the last mile. My actual pace for the finish was 4:41m/m - so definitely hadn't overworked the legs - I think they just ran out of glycogen because they were cold! SO wish I'd gone with my initial instinct to wear long socks (or long tights!!!
Really enjoyed this one but crikey what a challenge!! It was wet and VERY windy... ran in my coat (which I've never done before!!).
