Merthyr Mawr Pudding Race

It's all downhill don't ya know image



  • Great to see this is full already - sounds such a good event even if Alex's description is a half truth image
  • and it has the best looking marshalls!
  • Logically Kev, it must be quite literally a half truth  (seeing as we start and finish in the same place)  image

  • mince pies and sherry at half way - awesome!

  • when did it get full?
  • Last Saturday.

  • Race number came this morning, really looking forward to it now. Does anyone know how the course is looking?
  • I bet last weekend it would have looked wet......the river I swim in was over a foot deeper than the previous week.....
    if it stays dry like this though might be different.....
    I am so excited about this race......I love it.and christmas puddingsimage))
    awaiting race numbers but no post until 4 pm here
  • we must be having loads of rain at night as just been out offroad on our mountain and its really muddy and the course should be interesting image
  • Great, I get to get wet and muddy again. It's like being a kid again.
  • Can't believe I missed the deadline for this again!!! If anyone knows of a place going begging please let me know.  Good luck all, Mike.
  • My son has race number 1 so I have told him he has to get to the top of the dune first...........luckily I'm 686 so might get there by that number image
  • Been really tempted to do this the last couple of years. Will have to make sure I get signed up as soon as registration opens next year. Sounds difficult!
  • its so much fun....just what you need before christmas.....image
  • You know its Xmas once you've crossed the water to the finish line - as traditional as mince pies and mistletoe as far as I'm concerned.

  • If it keeps raining like this its going to be brilliant fun
  • i shall be checking out the course in the morning - the weather is as we normally plan, and looking cold, frosty and sunny..
  • What was the course like Mr Phil, wet and muddy?
  • I bet its muddy
