Umm yes - I had my race number and onfo sheet thingmy the other day
In a car park in porthkerry park......I will dig it our and post something a bit more helpful, honest Have you entered Neil, or are you entering on the day (do you want full directions or will you be getting them?)
I have entered and just had the race info, do I need to get some cross trainers or are my road shoes good enough. There are lots of comments about Mud...Slippery Underfoot I'm starting to panic now I have my race number and it's only my 2nd event.
Wow.........what an offer. I will be at the back.
Its now ot only the "huffing at the back club" - its the "huffing and sliing about in the mud at the back club"
Bring it on!
Although the way I have been running this week it will takeme all day - and for some reason the uiversity have booked me on a course that weekend - cue emails left, right ad cetre, desperatly trying to get it changed!
No postcode I dont thinl
Will have another look
From the bumf (in short)-
Park is on West side of Barry, between Barry and the airport
Follow signs to airport along A4226 Port Road
From Cardiff - after Tesco on right, next roundabout --> left (Pontypridd road). Down dip, through lights, up and over hill, turn right into St Salisbury Road. Follow to end, entrance to park is on the right
From Barry town centre - park is off Park road
From Llantwit direction - pass the airport towards Barry. Once passed Cwm Ciddy pub you will need to turn right at the next roundabout onto Pontypridd road, then follow directions as above.
Facilities are limited. NO changing rooms. Toilets at the car park near the finish area. Cafe on site will be open. Car parking is limited - car share where possible. Charges apply after 10am but as race starts at 10am this "should cause no worries"
The rest of the blurb is about the course route - but I am assuming we are not being expected to learn it! They do reiterate it is "multiterrain" and may be slippery and recommend off road shoes or cross trainiers.
Ah well, road shoes for me it isI am really quite scared about this - realised my longest run is only just over 4 (flat) miles....
Have no fear!. The worst part of the raceis coming back down into Porthkerry Park from the caravan park at the top of the climb from the start.There are quite a few exposed tree roots and you may also find some less thoughfull runners will barge past you in the hopes of making for a quick time.Just grit your teeth and hold on!
All other runners noteThe cafe at the finish hasn't improved since last year! The teas and coffees ar horrible!Bring a flask!!
Thanks to my post-Mudchute chest infection I've not run all week, so it's going to be the slowest 5 miles inhistory for me...
Had the same problem Nam.. Seems like there`s a lot of it about, managed to get back running on Thursday, surprised how tired my legs got after not running for a week or so.
Will fight you for last Nam...think I am going down with it
Andy - thanks for that - I will start at the back and then noone to overtake me
