The Midsummer Munro is a half-marathon that climbs and descends Surrey’s Box Hill 10 times for a total gain / loss of 3000ft. It is promoted as Britain’s hardest half-marathon and rightly so.
I am entered. It will be a big challenge but one I am looking forward to. I have now run 13miles comfortably twice this year and gym work is now stepping up a gear, particularly focusing on Quads and Hamstrings as well as maintaining core strength.
I will not be aiming for a time, just to complete the course as I have never run anything like this before.
