Mr Puffy i'm from Ellesmere Port mate !
12 miles this morning was going to do it on the roads but it was far to slippy so went the gym instead.
Good question, to which I do not know the answer, Steve. However, in other marathons, I think they tend to send a 'sweep van' round at the equivalent pace (i.e. 6 hours), and offer the chance for back markers to get a lift. If they refuse, which they can do, I think they are asked to continue on pavements / edge of the road, as the roads may be opened shortly after.
Hi all, after a lot of ummmming & arrrrring I've decided to bite the bullet and sign up for this as my first Marathon (It will be 3 weeks before my 55th!!!).
Just seems a big step up from halfs, doing warwick half in march so hopefully time enough to step up training for this, see you all there.
Andover parkrun felt like a marathon this morning carrying all that mud around!!!
Steve I don't know about last year as I didn't do the race, but the year before, we were on our way home and we saw the sweep vehicles clearing the road, there were still plenty of runners, and I can't see the organisers not giving them a medal really. I wonder if it's something to do with insurance and road closures etc?
Not far at all Ashman, are you doing any other races in the near future?
They are usually at the Four Villages half leafleting so I will ask them if I see them next week.
What do the experiance people think I should be looking at as a training plan, This being my first Marathon, I've done a few 10 miles, one half marathon (and Warwick half coming up in March). my times so far suggest a sub 4:30 marathon, should I look at a sub 4:30 training plan or as it"s such a big step should I be really looking at a get me round plan?
Doing Four Villages next week, Wrexham Village Bakery in Feb probably Manchester in April might do Liverpool half as well think its in March or may, and Chester half ! What are you doing ?
I was a marshall for this last year they do have a sweep up vehicle.
15 miles this morning on the treadmill as it was to slippy here, running on the treadmill seems to last for ever.
I'll be at Helsby and Wrexham.. Still haven't decided on Chester half & full
Hi everyone, I've signed up for this, I've also signed up for the 1/2 in May. The most I've ran before is 10k, but hopefully by the time October comes round I'll be ready for it
