Does anyone know a runner who might be unable to do the Half Marathon and has a number going spare.  I assume numbers can be transferred.

Any help much appreciated.

Brian, Having a racing comeback ?     I,ll be there for the full,

He-he, no chance Eric.  That said, it is a Sprecial Wedding Anniversity that weekend and I have been banned from attending any race.

I am trying to get the number for a friend who is desperate to get a race in before he does the London Marathon.

I have just come across this on the race website:

Do not pass your running number onto somebody else without notifying registration first. This is to ensure the results are correct and for obviously safety and medical reasons.

So if anyone has a spare number a transfer is acceptable.

Fingers Crossed.

Another shout out for someone who is after a half number which may be going begging

A shout out for anyone who may have or may know of someone who has a number going begging for the full marathon. My mate who I have been training with has left his entry till a few days ago thinking places were unlimited, well thats what it said on one of the sites! We have both trained for 4/5 months for our debut marathon and have both raised money for charity so is desperate to run! Is willing to pay full entry price.

Good luck to everyone on the day hopefully the wind won't be howling!

Haven't tapered as Manchester marathon is my A race, but am hoping to get as close to 3 hrs as possible. Did Stafford half in 1:23:23 a few weeks back, so hoping I won't be too far off.

Jedward and anyone else looking for 2:59:59 or less, while on one of my last little runs before Sunday at lunchtime and running into a little headwind I thought about if we can get a little pace train going? Each taking a turn in taking the wind for a mile while the rest draft behind then swapping ala tour dr France peloton. At least up to 20-22 miles then each run his own end of race.

My first marathon, any idea of the numbers traking part in the marathon?  I am aiming for 4hrs 30 mins

i thought this race was not really so good, having done it now....
nice medal..and thank goodness,nice weather, that could have made it a real bad day for me.....the route is boring and atmosphere very flat....and not 1 portaloo on the whole course for full marathon.

Got to agree on the portaloos. I needed to pee for about 7miles before giving in and stopping behind a bush. I didn't expect the atmosphere to be any different but the marshals could have at least cracked a smile. Lots of tweaks needed but as a straight off marathon course it was as required, flat and fast

Agree it's a bit of a dull course but it was expected, we all knew it was up and down the promenade! Best thing is its very fast in my opinion!
90% of marshalls were miseries but hey ho!

Got my dream time with 2:59:47 so Im happy
You may of heard me screaming down the finishing straight in the footy ground lol.

Happy days....bring on Manchester in 3 weeks

Wow you thought Blackpool was dull and you're running manchester, you're in for a treat. I did it last year, and it was really enjoyable running past the various industrial estates.

I'm doing it again but if I'd realised Sunderland was on the same day I'd have switched

I don't really do it for the scenery anyway

I've entered Manchester as its supposed to be a fast course and I wanted a good time
09/04/2013 at 20:19
Blackpool was my 1st marathon weather was perfect,course was OK, marshals were a happy bunch lol I finished in 4hrs 21mins brilliant I trained for a 4.45 shame there was no t/shirts but all in all a great weekend had and now I'm a MARATHONER.
