security locker somewhere if you have valubles then?
I was thinking more about where to leave an overnight case or holdall. I can probably keep valuables in a bum bag and run with it. I nearly came a cropper last Sunday at Rutland Water as it had no official facility there and was raining throughout the race.
I was going to see if I could avoid taking the car and going by rail instead. I suspect, however, from what I can gather, that that may not be practical.
Pitsford is quite a way from Northampton or Market Harborough rail stations mate. There is a bus service to Brixworth village however and that is not far from the resi.
Thanks Mark. I must admit I'm now tempted by Cambridge Boundary too, so am now spolit for choice.
I've just signed up for this as I've not done a multiple-lap marathon before.
Paul, I ran Rutland too, what a day eh? It rained from mile 2 all the way and it was so cold. I passed a few people in the last 10 miles who all looked like they were heading for hypothermia as they didn't have enough/adequate clothing on!
I was SO glad to see the finish!!
Yes, there are quite a number of interesting comments on the Rutland thread, although as yet still none from the organisers. I need Malaga next month to warm me up after that one.
Where is there any information about this race? The organisers website looks so amateurish it does not fill me with confidence.
There is an entry form online ref: the Pitsford Water Marathon. Link here just click Pitsford Water Marathon.
This event is for charity and though we do not have the most professional website on the market our knowledge of marathons and staging events at a reasonable cost is we trust is as good as most.

Just so your aware this is the same day as Silverstone Half Mara
I often run Pitsford Resi, was there on Sat and did a lap and a half its a lovely scenic run but be warned its very open to the elements. Also at the moment still rather water logged and muddy, its all trail apart from the causeways.
There are a couple of paying car parks you can use and also free parking on the sides of the causeway if you get there early
I am doing Silverstone but hope you all enjoy who is doing it and the weather is kind to us
I am in for this one, training run before Milton Keynes marathon in May and then a 100 miler in August if training goes well.
Considering this one....Need something to travel on from a race in the central Brecons the day before.....So a Welsh marathon would be rather convenient....!
Rutland was EPIC....Rather wet & cold.....
going to do 3 laps of the course saturday morning as training looking forward to it
Thanks Emmy. I have already committed to Cambridge Bounday on 3 March, so may need to consider this one for 2014 instead. The 12 noon start at Cambs did it for me in the end, although I would love to support this race at the next available opportunity.
I live nearby and wish to jog over and support an old team mate who is running. Can anyone tell me which way round the race goes please? I could not find it on the race information. Thanks.
Steve, I just received some info by email and the map says it goes from Brixworth Country Park down the south side of the water east towards the causeway and then west on the north side of the water back to the Country Park.
really looking forward to this first race of the year
