    She doesn't come in here does she ? .... Anyway I'm thinking it may give a bit of a motivational boost to speed up around mile 20.

    I'm going to tell on you Bruce. You are so dead.

  • Its all part of my masterplan ... if LB kills me first it means I don't have to run up those bloomin' hills !

     

  • DS - Fentiman's Ginger Beer is just wrong. Personal taste, and all that, but I find it too "genteel" - I much prefer a big gingery, sugary hit from Old Jamaica

  • Hehe Chillies, not you too, I'm not falling for that trick again.  That's just a cunning way of lulling me into a false sense of security, then you get to mile 20 before me and quaff my lovely iced drink.  It's the same at every event. Whenever I get to my supplies, I fiind the Fentimans emptied, my cheese  nibbled and my Marmite.......  left untouched.

    mrs mouse can you convert the route I sent you for the marathon onto a downloadable file for a Garmin???

  • Hi all,

    any idea what the total ascent is for the race?

    Bloody hilly doesn't sufficeimage

  • Hog Mousey knows its about rhe same as Beachy Head more than Purbeck and South Downs

    Basically 10 major climbs of about 400 feet each....pretty much a hill every 2.5 miles. 

  • Hog-mouseHog-mouse ✭✭✭

    There's a kml file for use in Google earth, you can view the route with the elevation profile.

    It's approx 4,000 ft ascent / descent. 

    unfortunately measuring ascent / descent is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string. Everyone will come up with a different answer.

  • Will have Mrs Mouses stuff on our website soon

    Thanks Mousey image

  • Ah so kinda like the same as running up Snowdon! image

    Well least it's a challenging first ever marathon for me!!image

  • Hog-mouseHog-mouse ✭✭✭

    If you can run up Snowdon then it'll be a breeze. I'm hoping Bruce will be giving me a piggy back. image

  • actually thats not such a bad idea, as it sort of guarantees that I will come second last, rather than my currently anticipated 'dead' last  image

     

  • It's probably time I put in a bid to come last as well image

  • I don't think you guys really appreciate how far back, last is going to be.  image

  • On the bright side - I'm very disciplined with closing gates in the countryside, so if I am last, everything will be left as it should be - plus I'll be able to nip behind a hedge for a wee without anybody noticing.

  • We all all optimists here arn't we? We are all vying to come last lol Perhaps instead of starting the race on the day perhaps we could start the night before?

  • I'm lacking a bit of focus at the moment. I've got a tri to get through very shortly, it's my first and I didn't swim or cycle when I entered, so I've had to split what resources I do have to make that training possible.  Once that's out of the way, I can really focus on GH and mainly running again, which I'm really looking forward to being able to do. 

  • Well its late on in the day with me. Just done my first long run Saturday just gone. Only 15 miles but I felt great. I have been doing loads and loads if quick short runs since Xmas and I have never felt so fit, they have helped hughly on my longer run and HM's i've done. So I am moderatley optimistic in finishing as long as I get the nutrition side of things right. Alternatively I will die a miserable death on a hill somewhere image
