Trionium Midsummer Munro Half-Marathon

When do entries open for this race?


  • MuttleyMuttley ✭✭✭

    Early Feb, according to the organizer's website ... so I suppose any day now.

    Funnily enough I was investigating this just t'other day. Seems to be a few Olympics-related goings-on at Box Hill this summer and I was wondering if they would affect the MM. (Maybe hoping they would, those steps hurt on the 10th climbing).

  • The race is now, finally, open for entry. There might be some bonus climbs if you are good...specially for 'Olympic year.'
  • Yippee - email notification received at 8.42pm, entry completed by 9pm imageimage

    Can't wait..........

  • I'm in! 3rd time around. When will I learn!
  • <Sigh> I supposed I'd better get my day's leave booked and entry in for this one.

    Done it twice before. You'd think I'm old enough to know better.

  • 'Bonus climbs'? Can I have my money back?
  • I'm in again. Third time for me as well. Waders for the stepping stones?

  • Oh blimey, I've only gone and entered this again. I am pretty sure I'm going to be somewhat slower this time round!

    The last time I did it (2007), I can't remember driving home afterwards image - perhaps I'll get a lift this time!
  • was thinking of doing this again, but entry fee is a bit high. Then agian it is the hardest 1/2 in britan , and a fantastic race. So I might enter anyway.
  • Just entered my fiance Tigeress into the race, as a birthday present.

    The first words she said was, OH MY GOD. 

  • MuttleyMuttley ✭✭✭

    So let me get this straight. You have wimped out of the MM and instead put your lady up for it.

    And she's still with you??

  • Yes I've lost my bottle and my fitness at the mo. Tigeress asked me to enter her for her birthday.  It will be Tigeress' 3rd time of running it. She would have left me if I hadn't entered her.

  • MuttleyMuttley ✭✭✭
    OK, I'm in. For the third time, and third go at cracking 2hrs 30mins.

    This race is not full, despite what RW says!

    227 entered - 23 places left...

    This is just to let you know that there will be a run-through of the outward leg of the Midsummer Munro (ie first quarter of the Picnic), starting at 4pm from the race start (bottom of the Zig Zag Road, Mickleham, RH5 6BN). We will be going slowly, and we will complete the 7 mile run in about 2 hours (we stop often!). You do not have to tell me that you are coming - or not - just turn up. Well behaved dogs are also welcome, as are non-registered runners/guests.

    D'Oh! The run-through is on Saturday 2 June.

  • I'm hopeing for all you runners that it isn't as hot as it has been the last two wweks.

    The run-through today revealed the full extent of this year's Midsummer Munro.... it will be approximately 15 miles in length, with around 3500 feet of ascent and descent. Good luck everyone!

  • 15 MILES !!?!!?? I haven't even made it to double figures on the flat for 3 months thanks to injury.  I'm now officially scared image

    Incidentally, don't know if anyone else has noticed but it looks like the stretch of the A24 leading to Ryka's will be closed from 8pm for resurfacing so a fairly long diversion may be in order for people leaving after then.  I was fairly confident of getting away in time but .... 15 Miles!?

  • Dr RobertDr Robert ✭✭✭

    Recalculating.... 15.6 to 16 miles.... special 'Olympic' edition.

  • Thanks for the run through yesterday Dr Rob  - I enjoyed it even if it didnt always look that way! I was a bit doubtful about the 15 miles and agree that nearer to 16 would seem about right if we did 9 on the run through.

  • MuttleyMuttley ✭✭✭

    16 miles?

    FFS ...

  • Bloody Olympics 

  • Dr RobertDr Robert ✭✭✭

    Outward route - many thanks to Hari

    (Can't seem to get that to link through - just cut and paste if you are interested enough!)

    Linkety link clickety click

    Just look at that elevation profile .... mmm tasty.

    So if this year's Munro is 16 miles is the Picnic 32?

  • Looking at that route it seems we're going up the ZigZag Road?

  • Will I need trail shoes for this?!
