i'm not the biggest fan of hot weather and my times definitely suffer in the heat....

hopefully it will start off a little cooler, as having watched the youtube video of the course, it doesn't look like there will be much shade....

So what was the verdict? Speaking personally, I thought it was an excellent event. Organisation was good, plenty to drink and friendly encouraging spectators. I've only just discovered that "Hurrá" means "Hooray". I'm glad I thanked the 2000 or so people who said it to me around the course. Goody bags were good too. As for the medal, whoever said that size isn't everything?

I did this one, too. It was the best thing I have ever done. Amazing weather, support and atmosphere. I am from Hungary and I lve here in the UK so running around in the best bits of Budapest made me feel quite homesick. I did the race with my friend, I think without her I could not have done so well.

only my second marathon after brighton in april and did same time bar 8 seconds quicker this time , 3 hours 48 mins 37 seconds ,

 but weather was so perfect for running , organisation was for abroad excellent , brighton marathon was superbly organised , and the run was brilliant down andrassi along the danube across the bridges , support along the run was as said not massively supported but was good , drinks etc was superb as enough of them and wonderful people holding drinks out superb job , only fault wish they had small bottles instead of them thin white cups but would love to do again . medal t shirt and goody bag very good , cheers budapest lovely 8 days spent and nice to see westbury runners lordshill runners and another portsmouth fan living in budapest
