ahh - this could be just what I've been looking for!! This is a few months earlier than last year (I remember we were staying in Manorbier at the time & the course looked v hilly) - any reason for the change of date to June?
Have been looking for a local marathon this year after a Christmas time injury ruined my chances of doing the Great Welsh in April, think this will hit the spot instead.
Just completed the Great Welsh marathon and fancy another. How hilly are we talking this one?
I ran the marathon last year and i think about 200 people ran it with another 250 or so running the half marathon (but i am sure Scott powell or Matthew Evans can give you the exact figures).
I had a fantastic day last year and whilst it did have a few teething problems none of them spoiled my day. I am looking forward to running the course again in june.
Its challenging but do-able
I grew up around Pembroke so I knew what the hills would be like and , of course, what goes up must come down!
I was about 30 secs a mile slower than normal but it was also run on a pretty hot day last year.
Fabulous course though, it is worth running just for the views and the enhanced self esteem on finishing.
Why is it that with 5 days to go I now start to question my own sanity? IS 6 hours REALLY going to be long enough
Having a bit of a dumb moment - can anyone point me in the direction of the race pack that someone has mentioned they have downloaded? Thanks
Does anyone know if we can wear ipods / MP3? The race pack says "discouraged" and I cant get anyone to confirm it.
As far as I can see there are only two people doing this run, you and me, I will be wearing my music so the rule is, yes you can wear your music
Good for you, I can't really run beyond 10k with no music, it gets dull.
Is there anyone local running this that can advise if there are there any decent places to eat in the town on the Saturday?
Ipod, yes for sure, I'll be grooving while I'm moving, and as long as I can find a decent Italian the night before, I'm good to go.
Still can't find out if many are running this though
This was one of the toughest marathons I have ever run,many thanks to the marshalls and supporters along the way,without you I would never have finished.Nearly gave up half way ,all hot and bothered but my fellow runners were feeling it too, so we all carried on encouraging each other,thats what I like about these races,the fellowship is great.
The swimmers and bike racers were very brave and inspiring.
the plastic cups were only HALF full !!!, i took on water at every water station but i ended up in hospital with severe heat exhaustion due to dehydration, i have run 7 marathons before without any problems, best time 2hrs 48mins
