This half marathon is graded as being multi terrain.
Does anybody know how multi terrain it is? Prefer road running so not sure if it would be suitable if mainly off road.
You just sold this one to me. Im heading over from Manchester for it. Is it pretty easy to park up somewhere? Ive spent a few weekends up there so im expecting a pretty undulating course!
Wouldn't want to try and run a PB on this course . The climb up the Great Orme is a question of survival . The descent though is fast , if you have anything left in the tank . Saying that my time last year was quite good and on par with other halfs , so you never know . Doing hills on your long runs would definitely be a good idea , but if you're like me , the hills where i live are pretty tame .
Just entered this race - look forward to seeing you all there!
Sounds like I need to do some hill training though? Any advice on this gladly accepted!
Another mancunian here sold on the scenery and the great feedback on here.
My advice dewio is just to get out there and give them a go, I did a 10k this year through the mersey tunnel and it was a killer, but now I love going uphill, though this might be different haha!
Looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks
OMG, I have just entered this! Needed something to spur me on.
I'm scared of coming last, but then *someone* has to come last don't they? As long as I complete it, I'll be pleased.
Sure you will be fine and remember the vast majority of us do not stand a chance of winning. It is for me about doing as well as I can against the clock, if I finish last then I still will ahve pleased myself. There is nothing you can do if everyone runs faster. I am sure you will do well. Good Luck!!!
Would any persons who are registered already for the Conwy Half consider raising some money for the RNLI as the course passes directly pass the lifeboat station?
It could be as much or as little as you like but it all really helps. You will get a training pack including a running vest and training tshirt if you pledge to raise £50 or more, and it would be great to see some more yellow lifeboat vests on the course.
If you would be interested please email Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have enterd!!
Should be able to walk by then!!
Following the recommendation and encouragement of a couple of fellow Coasters on Saturday (you know who you are !!) ... and a slow morning in work coupled with easy online entry ... it would now appear I'm now fully signed up to run this chappie.
Did the Great Orme Challenge 15k in Aug, over the Great Orme. It's a big hill!! But the views really are stunning. Never seen anything like it on a race.
I'm in too, and my lovely wife..Doin Snowdonia Marathon this weekend so thinking this will be quite straight forward. looks a great course!
Just had a mail saying race is now Full, and entry is closed !!
..... if only I'd waited those extra 2 days ...
After a whole week of no running and feeling lethargic, I've had a good week this week. This morning I ran 8 miles - the furthest I've ever run! Got soaked the first half of the run, then the sun came out.
Took me an hour and a half, but I was so chuffed.
Starting to think that maybe I can complete it.
For anyone looking for a cheap place to stay
Travelodge Colwyn Bay has rooms priced £29 on the Saturday and £19 on the Sunday
The hotel only opens a couple of days before so should be ok
I also need a place,anyone pulling out please contact me by email or on this site.full refund will be paid.
Although I am injured runner I am still running this event for Rett UK. So If anyone see's me struggling please spur me on. I don't normally do charity events but I cannot let people down or my Club. I haven't run for 2 weeks and I'm slowly getting better have a great physio man who is gettng me ready. I think I will be the one who is last but I'm not looking for a PB for this event I just want to complete even if I have to walk/run. It's the taking part that counts!
So Guys and Gals look out for the RETT runner!
