portumna forest 50k

this is a race for the purists  no big crowds shouting your name just you against the distance with the encouragement of the other runners 10 lap course on reasonable surface  with two mild inclines only lasting a few hundred metres two water stations  with places for your own special drinks chip timed proffesionally run event with high quality medal and  t shirt at finish  perfect for first 50k attempt  or like myself who are getting slower with age

the roar of the crowd

this in my opinion is the greatest marathon for first timers in the slower

time bracket  the support is just amazing  while this is not a fast course

and has a tough hill at 21 miles the last 5 miles are flat 

a well run event  having completed it many years from 1984 the buzz 

of this race draws me back again and again give it a try!

oh! that killer hill

great organising for first  birmingham marathon  enjoyed starting in the stadium  plenty of water stations  course was good apart from killer hill at  25 miles found being passed  by the half marathon runners  near finish was demoralising  gave a feeling of only crawling. over the years have seen the joy on peoples faces as the medal is placed around their necks as for a lot of  runners this will be their one and only opportunity to be a winner rummaging in the bag for it is a mistake  found birmingham a very friendly city  overall would  not recommend this marathon
