Midwinter Marathon Apeldoorn 3-feb-2013
Well, that sounds awfully flat compared with a lot of the marathons that I've run.
I do know someone who ran it last year and who said it was -15C. That's a bit nippy, even for a Geordie !
This time next week we will know all about it. Looking at the wather forecast, it looks like it will be about 3-4 degrees. So hopefully nothing like -15.
Anyone any idea how many entries they normally get for the marathon?
Last year it looks like there were about 440, which seems a reasonable number for the time of year.
3-4C ? Positively balmy

The Asselronde (27.5 km) is fairly popular. It starts at the same time and follows the same course as the marathon for practically its entire distance, so I expect it will seem as if there are many more than a few hundred running the marathon for quiet a while.
That is good to know. Better watch I don't get caught up in runnning at a pace with guys only doing the 27.5Km. Then finding out as they head for the finish line that I still have 15 KM to go
What a great event. It was a lovely route. I would definitely like to do it again some time.
It was great wasn't it? I really enjoyed it and at least the rain stayed off until the second half. I'm pretty sure I'll be back again as well.
