Half marathon lot easier than 140mile bike ride across the south downs I think !!!!!
I've only just looked at the course route (had just assumed that it was the same as it's always been), but have noticed the start isn't on Waterside, but is actually on high street/chapel st with a different loop around the town (past Shakespeares Birthplace).
I missed last years race (was running london instead), so is this course change new for this year? or was it like this last year as well?
The course change was made last year when the building work around the theatre and Waterside was ongoing. I don't know why it hasn't switched back. The new loop is fine although the congestion around the area at the bottom of Henley Street (I think) was pretty bad last year. Of course you will be a lot closer to the start than me so maybe that won't affect you .
Good luck for tomorrow everyone and may it stay dry for us!

Couldn't have gone much better for me... no PB but over the moon with my 1:13:05 result.
Photos were up quite a bit earlier on today on marathonphotos/fotos - makes a nice change (shame they still cost a fortune though!)
