I'm doing it, first marathon too
Can see the weather being a problem, it could quite easily be a hot day at that time of year (cold is highly unlikely to be an issue in April!)
San Miguel??? This is Madrid, Mahou is what you should be drinking!
And not worried about the 10K split thing, my company's HQ is near there and I know the area well
Thanks Tyler...good advice and really looking forward to it! I'll drink any beer at the finish!!
Amen to all the above - it is a nice course, 2nd half nicer than the first in my view.. I did it last year and weather was lovely, mid 60sF or thereabouts. The incline at the end lasts about 4 miles - nicely done course planners! One tip - it was clearly stated in the instructions, but I somehow didn't realise that the bag drop is in Retiro (the park where the finish is), which is a good mile or more from the start.. so give yourself plenty of time to drop your bag off. Made for a good warmup for me, running from the start to bag drop and back again...
