Hi Carrot top
Yeah that is the right route for the marathon . Talking of track marathons,a friend of mine done a 24 hour track race a couple of months ago and he is still injured. He said running the tight bends is a nightmare. The only plus side is your food and drinks are allways near you
Have a friend who did a track 24hr in Ireland. In that one they reversed the direction every (I think) 4 hours hrs to avoid injuries
I have done 24 hour races 14 times on 400m tracks and once (indoors) on 150m circuit.
The outdoor ones always turned every 4 hours and the inddor one was every 6 hours.
If anyone fancies trying a track race why not come to my Crawley Charity event on the 2nd of April. It's 6 or 12 hours. Details on Runners World.
Even track session cause problems with injury, its sinular to a cambered road, you are running for so long putting so much stress on the left hip, Glute, IT and hamstring nightmare!!!! ok doing it but look out afterwards!!
Still wanna do 1 tho!
Pam........ you are crazy!! you runing or marshalling Dartmoor Discovery this year??
Afraid I will be missing Dartmoor next year as I will be helping out at a 24 hour race in Switzerland, too good an opportunity to miss as it might be world championships.
Looking and learning about events ready for my 6 day Ultrafest in August next year.
I've not had anything yet, its my first time doing Gloucester, when were the race packs sent out last year?
2011 will be first time at this one for me, but I think forum searches will show same sort of debate takes place every year. The organisers are probably efficient types who's race does what it says on the tin but they don't overdo communication. For others new to Glos, I found 2010 details at this site and am guessing not much will be different in Jan 2011.
Bit strange to ask for a SSE though. I'd have wanted to get as many of those as I could away before christmas post rush starts.
I have entered this one to see if i can improve on my last years time and position.
I am going to train like crazy over christmas so as to get the edge over all those who eat and drink too much.

Thansk Pam. I think Gobi is right though I think I am jumping the gun a bit.
not sure what we'll be doing
may just spectate or have a training run for a bit
see how i feel on the day,
far too many personal problems to concentrate my mind on
