Hello all SNODders! Sorry Ive been so lame and contributed nothing to this thread.... Surely still the best on RW!!! I havent had achance to read all 97 pages of banter but may go back and check the last 50 for a giggle. So am I running!? Well there is a very small chance I could be IF (and it's a big IF) I manage to secure a place through Team Buff UK the headline sponsor. I been running for them this year so I'd thought I'd try my luck. I absolutely love SNOD and to not be there come next weekend will not be the same. So T-Rex put me down as ??? TBC
Let me know of any errors or additions.
Plus if anyone has a place but can't use it or knows of anyone in this situation and doesn't mind me running on their number then I'm game. As PJL says there are 100s of runners that don't even show for this race which is a real crime!!
Got through the last 10 pages which is enough for tonight. Great banter and great to see so many familiar faces and lots of newbies too
How's JD doing??
Hi, Stu. I wouldn't have thought after your exploits this year you would be very interested in this little mountain??
JD has gone silent which usually means he is not running. I may be wrong. Hi, jason!!
You could have PJL's number. I don't think he's using his.
All this talk of coasters has got me wanting to chase my 3rdconsecutive one too how about it PJL!!?! I could get you a PB of course I wouldon't wear the chip so there would be no issue about timing or running on someone else'snumber! I know they rule against running on someone else's number so have Leakey it low key.... Oops I guess posting on this thread has not done that!...
TRex - I ran around Mont Blanc for 42hrs but mostly in darkness do hardly saw anything!!! That's the one negativeaspect of the race but taking nothing away from it as it was the experience of a lifetime!!
Morning All! Did a few nice runs at weekend, so on a nice little taper now!
Happy to be in the 'running around the mountain' team! No pressure! Unless they have a 'grim reaper' picking of the tail enders?? Still havn't made the biggest decision as to what kit to wear though...and especially now that I know its being televised!!!
I'm looking forward to meeting you all
Hi everyone, managed to get a last minute number swap & looking forward to my 1st Snowdonia outing...
I ran 2.53 at Chester the other week so will be aiming for around 3.10, I'm doing a local RAF half marathon on the wed before he race so not expecting to be super fresh so wont be beating myself up if I blow up!
Stephen Weston 3 Stick your time down fella a si dont like being at the top ot that^ list! #Orangetop???
Hello all - first time for me, and the 600 mile round trip to get there and back is taking my mind off the race itself. Recovering from my first ironman 10 days ago so just getting round will be a treat.
Did Berlin in 4:21 a few weeks back so I'll add ~20mins for the lumpy bits and say 4:44 ...I'd be happy enough with that. Just need to not go mad up the first hill!
jenf - "televised" ??? argh!(that's worse than the hills!)
Ha, cheers NOSEMI, fancy seeing you on here, you'll be well under 3.30 going by your Chester time!
still - I don't expect the TV crew would be interested in the @r$e end charlies!
Didn't realise its been so long since I last posted,very slack of me.I have been keeping up with the thread and enjoyed the banter especially T rexs adventures,they always keep me entertained and if you ever did write a book of your exploits could I have a signed copy!
I am really looking forward to the 26th it will be 5th snod and probably my slowest yet(did I really say 4hrs Mr Rex,will be nearer 5),I missed last years fair weather race as the whole family came down with the lurgy 2 days before the day.So I am hoping this year normal snod weather will be back as to me it is all part of this great marathon.
I am staying at Padarn Lake this year as it is in crawling distance of the finish and they do great breakfasts in there to.does anyone know if Saturday night is karaoke night?
Other Half, perhaps we could come up with a good sob story as to why we are at the back of the field, and become heros!
Great news UDS. Have you got anywhere to stay?
Ex Chimney, I reckon you and I should swap places on T Rex's list. You must be aiming high (timewise) and I'm sure I'm aiming low!
I've got Round Rotherham coming up this weekend. I hope pushing for a 50 mile PB won't take the edge off too much.
We're at the back because we're socaible
I'm not on the list, can I be awkward I wonder and say 4:05???
Running round the mountain:
A full time job keeping this list up to date!
Hi Daym. Thought you were only going to be in Aus a couple of years? If you plan a trip back to the UK make sure it's towards the end of October ...
Stu - how did you get the place? Or shouldn't we ask?
T-Rex .... for my time, you missed the AM off the end of the 4,10.
