Thinking of doing this as a bit of an equipment test, race hit out. My dodgy calf says that running more than 10km wouldn't be a good idea right now. Anyone done it? Will I die of a terminal illness after swimming in the Thames? Confused

My sister lives in Stokenchurch so I have some local accom. Smile

I've done the Marlow Olympic and Half a couple of times.
I didn't die from swimming in the Thames.
A good event, fun going up and down from Pishill on the bike
Run is a mix of riverside trail and road with only one short uphill 3/4 of the way round the lap
I recommend it(but I'll rescind that if you die from swimming in the Thames)

Thanks Sid. I promise not to haunt you if I do die Wink Is it a run for regular road shoes or trail?

I managed fine in regular roads shoes, as the trail bit is compact dirt. May be different if there is a few days of rain beforehand

Great race, done this and the half ironman plenty of times. No need for trail shoes - only once after the thames had flooded was it muddy, so you'll be fine.

Yeah good race, just have to be careful on the trail bit of the run as very uneven if you dont do a lot of trail running.

Love the downhill on the bike had 45mph down there last time.

What little running I do is mostly on gravel paths next to the river, so i would assume similar?

Think I'm gonna be DNS for this. Currently bed ridden with back/hip pain and on strong pan killers.
