I know this is Spud's baby but I am a keen starter for the full monty this year. So i am kicking this thread off.

For the last 2 years this event hasn't been the same weekend as the big brother in Africa. I am assuming we are going to stick to the June period as race actual would means its the weekend after TNF100.

This would be an important run for me for what I want to do towards the last quarter of the year. So I am going for the full  Bruce Fordyce option

this shits me with all your fatass mucking around.  hellgate on the Canberra weekend and now PMC on a Sunday.

Next the 12 foot will be on a weekend other than the C2S weekend.

TBH I do mind Sunday.

it's great to see the flame get passed on. am thinking about it myself, despite it being a road run. but I have a very high dns % at the moment so don't bank on it.

Having done the uphill run 3 years ago, it would be nice to balance the ledger with a downhill run this year. :hi:

Hi all,

I sort of like the tradition of the date - I have been planning ( negotiating) for the Saturday. However, it is a Fat Ass so either or both days can happen.  Two years go Jan ran it by himself on Sunday.

I have been looking at train times  so I can make an early start like last year so I will not be by myself   by the time we reach the Gosford Race Track.  I have also been toying with the idea of running it in reverse diection so I get to see everyone  :hi:  maybe another year.

The last train on Friday gets me to Gosford at 2:30 am and the first for Saturday morning gets me there at 5:30 am. The really early start worries me with the lonely roads on a Friday night.  

I should/hope to  make a start ( the run scares me) and I am  unlikely to finish - I just want to be part of the event.  I will stick to Saturday for the main reason that I will finish late into the night and will need Sunday to recover.

I just thought I would put my thinking out there.  

cheers  Plu

For me, that's a very good reason to have all the big fat ass on Saturday. As a good example 12foot weekend I usually get home 4am-5am. I would hate that to be a monday morning !

The one closest to the roundabout on Wisemans Ferry Road = No

The one to the west of Piles Creek = Yes

So it should only mean a small diversion via Somersby Falls Road and Piles Road.

Pity the course doesn't go up Debenham Road when you leave West Gosford, would be much nicer than up a busy road and through Kariong and would link nicely Somersby Falls Road. I'm guessing would cut 1-2km from distance though.

Mick - I may not have understood your point, but it does go on Debenham Rd South, and its not a busy road. Which busy road do we run on ?

Oh, my mistake, hadn't seen map, thought course stayed on Pacific Hwy.

All is good, the diversion to miss the hole via Pile Rd and Somersby Falls Rd should be identical distance.

So that bit of road that collapsed will just remain that way?
Oh and Debenham Rd it is, a good heart starter coming out of Gosford.

Don't know when the remaining hole will be fixed. Just see the barriers there every time I go past and haven't stopped to have a sticky beak to see if they are making any progress.

Another thing to note is that the Mt White cafe is currently closed. Major renovations occuring by the look of it, I'm guessing it won't be open for June, but ask me closer and I can check.

Pie in the Sky now seems to get the motor bike trade. Noticed they have good supply of sports drinks, but I went for passiona instead today as it was a favourite when I was a kid.

This looks like a lot of fun but may be beyond my capacility.

I'd like to float an idea...

The Hornsby train gets into Gosford  at 6:15  As a novice I would take off pretty much straight away.

For the sake of a group photo could the nominal start time be brought forward to 6:30am, pretty please?

Oops just realise I didn't see a photo on the fatass site.  Maybe I made no sense

I'm up for this - been on the radar for a number of years now but I've never got to the start line - hopefully this year is the one.

I like the idea of the down year as it will only taeek me 10 minutes to get into bed after I finish.   :)

Hey olderunner, we start @ 7am anyway so it will be ok. I will too be taking the Train.

We did have pictures taken last year. I do remember seeing it on the CR photo archive.

I like the idea of a down year because it is all downhill.

After coming out the other end of 50kms at marathon pace on the road last weekend without so much as DOMS (should I have gone harder? :)), I am pretty sure I will line up for this in June! I did have reservations about it being all road and paths but at the pace I'll be moving I am now sure it won't cause me any of those dreaded road running issues I seemed to have been previously annoyed by  :o

Does not matter which way you go this run has hills and lots of them.
It the same as 6' track hard both ways just slightly different scenery.
It is really nice finishing at the top of the steps of the Opera house.
in 2007 it was so wet people looked at you like a crazy man going to the top of the Opera house stpes but I have been told that is the finish so that is what I did.
Nobody around so just walked to the train station.
Not much glory involved with this race, but it is still lots of fun.

A couple of weeks ago the local council carried out some resurfacing on Debenham Road. With the benefit of the new, super fast-surface, there should be some blistering times this year.  :)

I do the prefer the down run. Somehow the grand finish at the World Hertiage splendour of the Gosford Railway station among the adoring disinterest of the local bogans, doesn't quite rate with the sense of accomplishment when crossing the Bridge with the majestic harbour and Opera House below, before finishing below its iconic sails to the roaring silence of the similarly complacent tourists.

Yeah go LBP!!! :o

If LBP is a starter then I'm in as well. Looking for a nice day out on the road in advance of a cheeky long run in Brisbane a couple of weeks later, plus I've always wanted to tick PMC off the to-do list.

No pressure here, but if LBP runs, am I right in thinking she would potentially be the first female finisher ever?

Every year I read this thread and think yes, I really want to do this run one year.  I also want to do it for the first time on a down run.

I'm going to give this some serious thought - I actually don't think I'm really ready yet, plus have quite a few longer than normal (for me anyway) runs planned over the next month, so the body may not be too willing either.

But having said that, I will play things by ear over the next weeks and who knows, may surprise myself and turn up to the start.

I WILL do this run one year even if its not this one.

Ah no, The Bunny beat me to it last year I think?

....I stand corrected, by myself :), no females have yet finished the full monty according to the Fatass page......oh no! :o

This might mean I need to forgo the Maclay River Mara in order to taper, decisions, decisions!

You are right Anth. EverReadyBunny and Dutchie ran a marathon distance last year but there has not been a female finisher yet.

I've been interested in running PMC for a few years and I'm thinking this is the year for it.

With soccer coaching obligations on saturdays I will have to run it on sunday. Is anyone else thinking of running on the sunday?

A couple of 100 milers this year & C2K next year. :)
TFive sure is capable of it along with others like Gogirl.

Bunny and the other ladies will have more competition in the near future I think.

I was being nice to TFive and Gogirl and giving them an extra 12 months to get it in the head what they were getting into.
Or maybe really just another 12 months for Paul to work on TFive and a few more working on Gogirl. :)
Saying all that I have started talking to Nando about it too seems how he has started moving over to the dark side.

C2K is not that hard.  It is just a slow jog along with people driving next to you feeding you.  


Well except for the winds blowing you over and the freezing rain at the end.

Do what ever you like, it is fatass after all.
If you start a bit later you could even have some company for a nice training run.

Saying all that I have started talking to Nando about it too seems how he has started moving over to the dark side.

I do the prefer the down run. Somehow the grand finish at the World Hertiage splendour of the Gosford Railway station among the adoring disinterest of the local bogans, doesn't quite rate with the sense of accomplishment when crossing the Bridge with the majestic harbour and Opera House below, before finishing below its iconic sails to the roaring silence of the similarly complacent tourists.
of course, neither can match the glamour and prestige of the Charlottes Pass toilet block :)
