What's it like?
I can't seem to find anything about the 2011 Leicester Marathon on RW? Maybe I am just missing it...
Has anyone who has run it before provide some details? Fast course? Good support etc.
This has ben the route for the last 3 or 4 years....
Leicester Marathon route
Can any past runners give an idea of what the start is like? I believe there are a few thousand people all setting off at once, so I would imagine it is important to be reasonably near the front if you are looking for a quick(ish) time.
I haven't had a problem in the past at the start. I certainly haven't found that I am under peoples feet or visa versa after starting in the middle of the field. Within a couple of hundred yards you turn left on to London Road where the course widens out & you can get a decent first mile in down the hill!
There is a good post on you tube if you type in Leicester marathon 2010 with the field turning into London Road & shows that there is plenty of space.
Has anyone had their race packs yet?
I had an email on the 22nd saying they would be posted out shortly but haven't received mine yet.
