Used to work there Peter.
Castle is centre of town and next to railway station if start / finish is near to castle.
There are hotels town centre but don't know if want that or just B&B.
If it was me I would stay in Morecambe plenty cheap B&B and get public transport into Lancaster on race day. Its only a couple of miles.
I would do this if it wasn't so close/in summer.
26.2 miles in the heat would kill me off
around Midsummers Day will at least give you plenty of daylight hours to complete...;0)
Flat? Did someone say flat? I wouldn't say it's flat in my experience as a student there, but being a second third home for me, it would be nice to complete a marathon in one of my Meccas.
very interested in this but there is next to no details (route maps, elevations, water stations etc) on the Shoestrings site - anybody got any ideas?
A couple of points that I have noticed on the event website at Shoestring Results:
Firstly, the web site stares "Certified Accurate". This is not the case. I have not received a measurement report for this event, so I have not issued a measurement certificate.
A UK Athletics Licence has not been applied for at this stage.
Whilst there is still time for both of these important issues to be put in place, I believe I have a responsibility to let you know.
