Do you like hills?
Yes i live in North Wales so have no choice but to run along hilly routes.
Just done the Conwy half where you runup the great orm, so hopefully it shouldnt be to bad!
Click: Cotswold Marathon
In that case you couldn't have picked a better event to try your hand at the 26.2 distance. It's a 3 lap course on minor country lanes, very low profile, but well marshalled and supported. The hills aren't exactly lung-busters but you'll be glad to get to the top of 'em.
Did the 35-mile event last year and had to go up that hill four times.
Only one long hill as I seem to remember - the race start was half way up it (and a long walk from race HQ). An attractive rural loop. Relaxed atmosphere at the venue. Organisation good.
Doing Rhayader 20 the day before so I didn't think it would be very sensible entering this again.
See you at the start line then, have a good run everyone.
Thanks Sole Man .....
I'll second that, have a good one everyone, it would be nice to put faces to names at the start line or after. I'll be in red Horwich vest if you see me give me a shout
The (scarey) ice crean cone man was David Smith, he is setting a Guinness World Record for "The Fastest Marathon run as a Dairy product"
His next conquest is to run the London Marathon twice. Starting at 4am at Buckingham Palace! See link for his running endeavours this year: http://www.justgiving.com/londonx2
The 'hill' was tough on the 3rd lap just before the 20 mile marker, and then the 3 mile gentle incline after that didn't really help I will return one day to get my sub 4 hrs, but only after lots of hill training!
Can anyone help me.?
I was the Ice cream cone at the cotswold marathon. I am trying to prove I ran this race as a diary product to claim the guinness world record for the fastest diary product. Without witness statements I can't prove it. If any runners or officials can provide statements I would be very grateful and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
I thought running the race would be the hard bit but oh no proving it is so much harder!
