Marshalled this last year....it was inspiring stuff.
I'm a survivor from last year (5hrs 55mins - I got a 4hr 14min on the Snowdon Marathon). As per the instructions I didn't cry and it didn't hurt much (actually that's a bit of a fib - it did hurt on the last descent of The Eiger Steps) At the end I said to myself "Never Ever Again" - I meant it.. However by the next day I was already planning my 2013 strategy - fortunately we don't have to wait that long. On the Monday after the race I dangled my medal in front of a fellow runner and told him that it was as close as he would ever get to a Picnic Medal - he is currently "considering his options" !!!!!
Atmosphere at this race is fantastic. All the encouragement to keep going that you could possibly need.
Entry done this morning.
Dr Rob, you and I obviously have some kind of sadomasochistic relationship. You keep organising these horrible events and I keep entering them...
Keep up the good work!
Entered this morning, I'm sure I said never again after last time.
Funny how you forget the pain and only remember the glory of finishing.
I wish you never said Madness/impossible to do both...
Loved this 'race' last year, and have signed up again!!! Dr Rob, any idea on how the route is going to differ from last year? (with the exception of being alot harder due to the added distance!) Or is it gonna be a surprise left until the start line?
Uh oh. Special means .
How does compare with Endurancelife Exmoor?? I have Dartmoor Classic the following day so might not be the brightest thing to do.....I'm tempted though!!
I'd be interested in any comparisons going also. I entered a while back having missed the chance to run it last year through injury.
Getting this in my focus now as will force me to think of May's marathons as no big deal!
