Runners update

If you are running in either the Marathon or Half Marathon on Sunday please be aware that the weather forecast is for bright sunshine and temperatures of 24 degrees! There are water stations but please also bring some liquid with you to carry, either water or electrolyte replacements or both. Don't worry about over hydrating before the event as there are plenty of trees en-route!
Although much of the route is in the shade there are sections that are completely open to the elements so please take the necessary precautions against the sun, we want you to have a great day and get to the finish in a reasonable condition so please be sensible.

Apologies to anyone who signed up expecting mud again, its all gone. Hopefully the better ground conditions will not make it too easy for you.

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday but wish i was running amongst you!


  1. well done with all your organising. SSNTV are looking forward to marshalling at Wilderhope (will be bringing sunhats and factor 50)

  2. Hope everyone has a great day today! Could I suggest that people use #overtheedge2013 on Twitter to keep in touch on social media?
    National Trust: could you post a link on this blog to the Facebook account that is referred to on the main website for this event? I can't find the Facebook page. Cheers.

  3. Hi Joanna i am afraid i am only just getting to grips with social media but i will try to do the things you suggest once i know what they mean!
    I think everyone had a good time in the sunshine.
