.....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!
The entry form is now on the website http://www.greatlangdaleraces.org.uk/marathon.htm
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.
'The course will run in an anti-clockwise deirection, not for masochistic reasons, but to make it safer to marshall'
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.
