Height profile ?
There's this which looks like a race directors comment which may be your point 2:
There is an elevation gain of 584m and loss of 592m. The minimum elevations 176m and maximum is 243m.
The jist I get from speaking to other runners and cyclists and from some of the elevation graphs I have seen is that there are a couple of long steep inclines (near start and at around 10 miles) and just undulation all the way round (short steep inclines/declines) making it difficult to maintain a marathon rhythm..
Am looking forward to it though!
Raced this on Sunday, I use the term 'raced' in it's broadest sense, should probably said 'completed'. Any ways my Garmin suggests 5687 feet of ascent and 5560 of descent, no wonder my quads were trashed afterwards! Great day and a beautiful course.
OMG that was very tough, I've done South Downs and Beachy marathons and this one outstripped them both....my legs are concrete!!!!!
