Pacing Snowdonia #ukrunchat @runningblogs

After a break from the Runner’s World Magazine forums I’ve gone back in for a look and started reading a thread on the Snowdonia Marathon. Some great stories there but the best thing I’ve found is a plan for pacing for a Sub 5 based on people’s experience of the course.

I might adopt this.

  • Miles 1-5  11:30
  • Miles 6-13    10:30
  • Miles 14-22    11:30
  • Miles 23-24   15:45
  • Miles 25-26.2    11:00

TOTAL  4:59:42

I may be able to go faster at some points – who knows – but this seems realistic for a first time attampt.

Any opinions? Let me know in the comments below.
