I havent had any thing come through yet about this and entered back the beginning of January, I take it that its pick up numbers for everyone at registration?

I notice to it had sold out

I'm using this as my training plan for Brighton Marathon, I'm quite excited about it but not about the weather!!! Hope that its a nice day like it was here in the Midlands today, sunny but still cold perfect weather to run in!!

You entered online so you should have had an automatic email asking you to down load the final details. Numbers & timing chips to be picked up on the day




Yes you can enter on the day we have had a few cancellations and will not turn anyone away from a run. 1500 entries accepted.

Weather forecast for Sunday, it looks cold, dry and not overly windy.

I'll be happy with that!

I'd take that.  Still, it's on the coast so bound to be some breeze.

Sorry..Saw that.

We will not turn anyone away on Sunday, may nor get a medal, but will if any left over at finish after no shows. Additional printed medals only take a few days anyway.

Weather looks like being perfect, very slight breeze, 5/6 c.


Hope this helps

You have really put my mind at ease.

I look forward to doing better than last year!

Never run this race before. Done loads in Blackpool from the Hilton at other times (Beaverbrook etc) and are all really good days. Am looking forward to it. I wish there was a pacemaker for 7:38's though (fussy old git I hear you shout !!!) as would love to break 01:40 but will be happy with anything under 01:45.

Hope the weathers great.......see you all Sunday.....Good Luck

Anyone know what the weather is like in the Blackpool area at the moment?

It's snowing here in Middlesbrough and I'm getting a bit nervous about the weather!

23/02/2013 at 18:11
