I'm not sure if there is anoter thread on this marathon but according to the marathon website and in the news section:
"We received criticism over the amount of waste of energy drinks in our 2009 event. We have consulted with our Course Doctor and decided that we will only provide energy drinks on our full marathon at Drink Station 7 at Long Marston ( about 19.4 miles). The drink provided will be: High Five Carbohydrate drink mix with Electrolytes, Fresh Citrus Flavour, in 200 ML cups"
and under FAQ
"Drinks Stations are at approximately 2 mile intervals. Water will be available at all drinks stations either in bottles or cups. Isotonic drinks will be available at a Drink Station for the full marathon and the location will be provided under News on the website. Runners must accept that taking these drinks is entirely at their own discretion and as organisers we strongly advise that runners take medical advice before the event regarding the use of Isotonic drinks."
Incidentally the whole site has more disclaimers than an amercan law series
If anyone has an entry that they dont need / cant use please let me know.
I try and run it every year in Shakespeare costume [since 2001] but have missed the boat this year!
My bf has entered for this yesterday What time does it start then as Mark u said u ran early 10am yet at start of thread it said it starts at 1pm
also i may need to stand then where there are fewer spectators to give him a good cheer if you find any area hard let me know so i can stand and cheer him on
I love stratford so i'm looking forward to going and cheering if anyone else is doing it let me know and i'll cheer u on too
The 1pm start was back in the "good" old days. Much more civilised now!
Starts and finishes in the town centre with a lap of the town first so theres two chances to give a good send off and then see them finish.
Theres plenty of people en route to cheer him on.
Done it twice 2006 and this year, well organised great for family to support and see you half way etc, yes there is one hill on both laps but even thats not bad.
Great course, great day GO FOR IT!!!
Starts 1pm?? where did u get that from??? 9.30am start!
