.....its normally about £16-18 i think for the full marathon....so a little less for the half. Fairly big field for the half.....tiny fo rthe full!

Wonderful race, very friendly atmosphere.....good organisation, but hard as nails....especially the last descent!

I heard a rumour recently that, just for a laugh, Rod is considering reversing the route this year - don't know if there's any truth in that (and the map on the website indicates going the 'normal' way round) but the start would be a hell of a challenge if he did.

I'm still wavering as to whether I want to put myself through this again this year.

Nick - before you start - I was planning to do the full this year until I injured my back in April (before I could do a spring marathon as a warm up) and I'm still gently working my way back to fitness - there is no way I will be fit for a marathon in September, least of all this one.

Got my number today, along with a letter from Rod.

Here's a map of the course - not quite perfect as I am missing 3/4 of a mile!?

Hope to see you there!

Thre'll be lots of people walking that second mile!! though a fairly flat last 3 miles might compensate for it.
