thank k80 

and ally, my husband asked same thing.... there wasa  rather large digital timer at the base of finish , maybe you would miss it if busy crossing the finish, i ran over on my own 

the route was fab , and had part of my parkrun route in it, i live there, so quite at home

did anyone GPS the 1/2 marathon route - ran a 1:31 chip time but it felt a lot slower, especially with that hill at the end and the busy paths in the first 5 miles when the 1/2 and tail of the 10km where together. Training for Brighton and was not expecting that kind of time yet for the half.

no sorry andy , it is apparently officially measured by the athletics association , maybe your too modest with your abilities  fab time BTW

@andyc209 - yes i had garmin on and it said it was 13.1 - the mile markers were't always alligned with by watch, but by the end it all worked out - its here if you can access it - http://connect.garmin.com/activity/283265997 - although im sure the hill was bigger than the garmin says!
