  • nantyglo..  Next one over from Ebbw Vale..

  • Might do it!

    Have done it before, beware the stretch along the very pebbley beach! image

  • Pebbly

    Sounds uncomfortable.....

    Is it very hilly??

  • Yep - as I recall there were some challenging hilly bits.
  • Greetings Plodders (especially Daz,who looks nearly has handsome in the flesh as his photo!! Ouch!!)

    There are no hills.

    In Norfolk
    The pebbles have gone,typical Barry Chavs will nick anything!!!

    It is a challenge,especially the drag up to the Airport road,passing Egerton Grey Hotel,but boy it is worth it!!!

    Be there or be........in Norfolk!! 

  • Are there any maps available showing the route??
  • nantyglo..   Ah Alexander Cordell country!

    The pebbles have gone,typical Barry Chavs will nick anything!!!

    Merthyr ones will do the job quicker.........

    Will email the organsier to marshal.

  • I don't do challenging..... image

  • PQ nice to see you the other day.  image

    You looked 'on a mission' so didn't want you to break your stride.  image

  • And you Nam image

    I was on mile 9 of 10 so on a mission to get back to my car !

  • What shoes are people suggesting???

    Road shoes ok or XC shoes?  I have some Salomons which are lovely in grass & mud but if there's long stretches on road in between I'd be reluctant to wear them.

  • PQ you looked fresh as a daisy... image
  • Not by the time she got back to the car she didn't Nam image
  • You shudda gone to Specsavers then Nam ! image
  • That bit round the corner must have killed her off then....  image
  • I'm getting a bit worried about this race now...  image

    >>wibbles<<

  • You be fine!

    <laughing>image

  • Race number and map/route arrived today

    It talks about 2 "hills" and lots of "undulations" - I dont know how they are defining the line, there though!

    I am very worried about this race......I cant do a flat 5 miles.....never mind hilly ones image
    WTF was I thinking of?  Do you think they will wait for me to walk/crawl round?

    TT they are probably going to be grateful for all the help they can get - seems to be lots of bits changing tracks etc - so I will get lost, I am sure

    Nam - they recommend XC or cross trainers because it is "multiterrain".  Most of it is in the park, except for 1 mile which includes a linking section of pavement
    (apparently)
