Alan, it looks like I am not going to be able to take part (really sorry as I asked for a specific number as well) my training has been non-existent - life has gotten in the way! - and I jarred my knee last week and it still doesn't feel right.

Is it possible to defer or do you want me to send the race pack/number back to you so that someone else can have the number?  I was going to see if I could still run it, but I'd rather someone else get the opportunity.  Really gutted to miss this.

I am in on Sunday as training towards The Outlaw.

Very nervous and this is my first running race of any description. Now I can spend the week worrying about what to wear, what to eat, will I finish, should I run / walk........

Good luck all

SC - unable to assist with deferrals, transfers or refunds I'm afraid. We get around 1,300 people not turning up for this one and if we helped with deferrals, etc, we would have no way of knowing how many people would ACTUALLY turn up. It's not just a case of your entry. We get 1000s of similar requests so have to say no. Sorry.

Muffin Top, don't worry! Just enjoy the day as much as you can. Take it steady from the off and appreciate the atmosphere on the day.

Looking forward to this now, 3rd half for me but not done this one yet.

 Training has been patchy, with a few niggles and illness all being disruptive   

Just hoping for low winds or that last couple of miles will hurt !

On the website there is a mention of being able to register to track/record time via Facebook or Twitter - but I can't actually see how I can sign up for this? 

 Can anyone help?

 Looking forward to Sunday - after my last HM (Milton Keynes) brought torrential rain/sleet, the prospect of showers on Sunday doesn't daunt me too much!

Have a look here

Seems to be fairly straightforward.

Hi Alan,

 Will there be pacers this time? 



15/03/2012 at 15:17
No. RW were invited but declined!!
15/03/2012 at 16:17

Right o Alan thanks.

Morning all, Looking forward to the event. Nice weather today hope it holds for the weekend.

Most importantly Alan if you can get the wind to stay away please that would be cracking!

16/03/2012 at 16:46
Been down at the start / finish most of the day and the weather has been fine. No wind to speak of. Hopefully it will stay that way. Medals are in, T shirts (technical) are in, seating set up at the finish, toilets arrived, water checked in so all things moving along nicely.

We've got Kris Akabusi along to start the race and a big screen to promote the marathon.

A Samba dance troupe at the back and a drum team to set you off... going to be good again!

 To anyone local  

Weather forecast on BBC looks ok not too warm only odd shower if any but NW winds 12 mph

What would wind be in last 3 miles if that forecast is correct?

I.E. head, tail or cross

Sounds like a bang on headwind. But lets not worry about that. When was the forecast ever right ?
16/03/2012 at 23:54

Kris Akabusi to start...nice one!  I'm sure Carra was chomping at the bit to start us off again after Tuesday, Alan.  Shame he's got a game against Stoke to deal with instead, eh!

17/03/2012 at 01:18
Oh, Kris Akakusi sounds good. Nice !
17/03/2012 at 09:16
really looking forward to this.
17/03/2012 at 12:28
Just out of interest Alan, why didnt the new start and finish materialise for this years race as hoped?
18/03/2012 at 14:42
Really enjoyed the run but has anyone had problems with the official time. Mine says DNF I'm really hoping is just a glitch as I ran for charity and was relying on the official time. I know I came over at 1:43 but was hoping to shave 4 minutes off from the delay getting over the start line
