Hi everyone. Haven't done the S.T. before; looking at my race pack for next weekend it says the water stops will have water only. Guessing that means no energy drinks / food etc. Do many people run this with a trail backpack?

Hya Yes its a trek but it looks like it could be worth it, it'll be three Marathon Sundays on the trot so I'll be coating this one, I'll stay in Swindon on the Saturday and drive home afterwards

That a lot of Marathon weekends. Sorry I cannot comment on the event as I have never done it before, (its my first Marathon anyway) According to my phone the weather for Sunday is sunny at 14  celsius. Hopefully it wont change

Hi All.   Like MC5, I'm interested in what to take - was planning on a small backpack (or waist pack) with a couple of bars and gels, some ibruprofen and foot tape which is what I take when I'm out by myself.  Don't see any reason to change that.  I was thinking a roll up bottle migh be handy to fill up from the water stations.  Any advice welcome.

It's my first marathon and first post on this forum so go easy on me!

Hi MC3 and Rich

Welcome

Sorry this is also my first Marathon so I 'm probably not the best person to give advise on what to take but I though I let you know what I will be taking.

I will take a waist pack and a water bottle. As it looks like that only water is available at the drinks stations I will take some High5 tablets with me which I can put in the bottle when i re-fill it at the stations. I will also take Jelly babies and Glucose tablets and a couple of protein bars. I will also take blister plasters in my waist pack. i will also take other items such a sunscreen to put on before the race, sunglasses, cap etc

hope it helps a bit

See you Sunday
