Is anyone doing this event who knows where the start and finish is ?

My girlfriend is running for the first time and has received hardly no info at all.

All I can find on line is a vague route description, any one have any details.

My wife is running too and yes, info is rubbish! that's fairly typical of the race for life series - she did Paddock Wood last year and there was little info (none on course) then either.
However, on day organisation was very good and I think that is typical too.
Seems start/finish is near City Thameslink station/Holborn Viaduct/Smithfields market (a fairly small area really). I'm sure we'll find it on the day. Good luck

I'm running the racxe for life on Sunday as well, you're right about the information it's rubbish! A quick question for you Beads - was there a baggage drop at the paddock wood run last year?

I'm doing this tomorrow too. The start is apparently on Giltspur Street, St Paul or Farringdon would probably be the closest tube stations.

And I've just checked the website and discovered that they're not handing out water at the finish! That's a bit rubbish...

Hi all,

how did you find the race skinny? It was hot wasn't it and thankfully they did hand out water at the end, phew. Can't say I noticed a baggae drop though....

Loved the aerobics warm up certainly got me ready for anything.
