Just a bit of a heads up to anyone out there about the fabulous event. It is almost full up - so get in there quick to avoid missing out on a great, friendly, flattish with mixed terrain, marathon. Great way to get rid of some pounds before the Christmas scoffing takes over.

I'll be coming along to support that one as usual   will be wrapped up nice and warm!!!

Maybe next year. This is one that I would have to build up for. Sounds like a good race though.

I missed entry last year. I'm not missing it again this year! Although I'm not yet fit enough to run a marathon yet...

Pulled out of the New York Marathon this week as I think it's fundamentally wrong to hold an event there when people have no homes, electricity, water, food etc etc and infrastructure should be focused on recovery and clear up. Entered this instead as a sort of consolation and to keep ticking over. Hoping for a cold, bright, windless, dry day  Really, really enjoyed Beachy Head last week as took it very slowly (as was saving a bit for NYC), so might have to work a bit harder on this flat one

I was at Beachy last week end too, a bit fresh !

I have register for Portsmouth marathon and hope it will be a good one.

I am from Bromley and was travelling on the Sunday morning, if anyone is from the area and has a spare seat in the car, or if you want if you want to come with me in my car, please message me !

I'm in. First marathon. Had entered 2 others this year but DNS'd both due to injury and then illness. It is a consolation event for me with no great expections other than to get round. 

I live in hertfordshire but my g/f's family are in Portsmouth and we are there for Christmas so it seemed a plan, but I'm now working on Christmas eve which is going to be a pain!

How is the course? judging from last year's times quite tough...

05/11/2012 at 11:43

My understanding, and I could be totally wrong is that it is flat but exposed and the main problem is wind.

05/11/2012 at 13:42

Ok, that should not be too hard, hope we can deal with that and have a quiet day...

Just back from New York. This looks like a fine substitute!

Anyone going to be doing this from Cardiff or the south wales area, and driving down with a spare seat? I'm looking for a winter marathon so it's either going to be this or Gloucester.

Missed NY too, very happy to have this as my last race in my year of running. See www.olympicnick.com for details. Not sure if many race in fancy dress ?? Might get the toga out one last time!!

Hey Nick

I felt for you when I heard about NY.  I'm entered for this one too but not sure where my previous posts on this thread have gone?

14/11/2012 at 14:31

Andyp, I think there was another thread about this that has disappeared.

Anyway, my email tells me there is brandy and wine at the water stations, I like the sound of this!

14/11/2012 at 20:22

I definitely like the sound of that 2wheels.....

14/11/2012 at 21:02

Wow, didn't read my email properly last night..so we are all up for a good party then?!..Really looking forward to this baby now, what a great end to a year especially for the 12 in 12 crew..you know who you are

hello everyone. Just signed up for this today. I did my first mara at the end of sept (loch ness) and loved it. Have kept ticking over with half marathons in the last 6 weeks but haven't run further than 15 miles since . Will be using the next 40 days to get some long runs in. Lets hope 40 days is long enough to get fighting fit.Starting to panic a bit now

Did it last year and going back again. It's a nice course, fairly interesting except for a slightly dull stretch by the motorway. The terrain is a bit mixed, short sections on shingle and a little trail, but it's a road shoe course. And very flat!
See you there!
