Its a very nice guesture but I would assume any extra expense will affect  the amount they will raise for LOROS so I'll leave my medal the way it is.

BTW, a friend of mines dad was cared for by LOROS in his last weeks. This is a very, very worthy charity.

Shades has summed up everything I would have wanted to say about the Leicester Mara  Fantasic event Bob, look forward to next year.

Birmingham Owl - Nice comment, I agree. 

Rosa - I'm not sure how I managed to keep going, as I have quite a bad problem with my hamstring. Well, the saying goes - where there's no sense, there's no feeling...say no more!

Very nice gesture re the medals but like everyone has said - better to let them keep their money

Great event. Rather more undulating than expected, but otherwise everything couldn't have gone more smoothly.

Not sure I'll do the full marathon again, but that has no reflection on the event and everything to do with "so many marathons, so little time". I'd definitely do the half.

And in the end all I wanted was a GFA/BQ time, and I got it

Bob this race was great and I will be back next year.

Great event Bob!
I think the marshalls did a great job - the poor person who looked like they were about to be assaulted by a complete N*B of a motorist on the Traffic Island before the first real updulate was brill - I hope someone had that idiot arrested - because it was completely unnecesasary.

I think the touch of having gels available was genuis (especially as High5's are kind to me) - having them 100m or so before the water stations so they can be taken and then washed down would make sense to me.

I always take my own ones just before the water station for this reason - they need diluting!! 

 Nice medal too!!  I'll also not be sending mine back for engraving - keep the money, and make sure LOROS gets as much as it can!

I just saw it as an excuse to stop elbee!  I took my gel, stood still opened it, consumed it then drank my water, had a stretch and ran on or more accuratly waddled on!!

Hey Bob. Great day, superb organisation and vastly enjoyable ... apart from my run which wasn't anyone's fault, but my own

Note to self... must make stride length longer...

Hey V-rap-I completely missed.  How did that happen?  So sorry-but well done on your time.

i'm still waiting for my photo to appear, seems as though another 100 or so get added each day. i'm waiting for one more time slot to become available and then i should pop up
19/10/2007 at 14:54
Yes Hollywood - looks like you could extend that stride a touch...

I thought the race was fantastically organised even if slightly less flat then hoping!! 11 months 364 days since my first marathon I have run 3:32 to 3:24 and now 3:11 so over the moon even if looking slightly greyer in the photo's, running seems to age me!!

You were showered, changed, fed, and most of the way home before I got to the finish-line, Ultra Hamster Well done - splendid time!

 Have just seen revised chips times, are these the final results or may there be some more changes.  Not happy that my time went from 3hr49mins to 3hr50mins, thats 30secs!!!  I've been telling everyone 49, now i'll have to admit to how slow i was!!! Bloody marathons if only they weren't so long!!
