Well, you could if your friend finishes lap 1 as you are starting ie. they take an hour to do the first 6.5 miles.

02/06/2013 at 18:40

I've just checked their page and there's 1/2 hr difference in the start time - full at 9, half at 9.30 ..... think I'll be going solo

02/06/2013 at 19:42

Oh, sorry Adri! Didn`t realise that. So I WILL get overtaken by lots of HMers!

02/06/2013 at 20:23

Nah you'll be way in front

02/06/2013 at 20:51

I Think entries have closed now but worth checking.

Race packs to be sent next week, I`ve heard!

03/06/2013 at 19:57

I entered today Richard, so still open for the moment

03/06/2013 at 20:55

Hope it's a good one, hope everyone's training going well. I've never done a marathon in laps before so will be interesting. Local knowledge required..any major issues with hills, traffic, parking etc

Cheers, Brer

Nice one, It had said closing date 24/5 but glad your in!

Anyones race pack turned up yet?

14/06/2013 at 09:33

No. Hope it`s today! I wonder how many have actually entered the full. It said the race was near full in March but I reckon that was marketing cobblers.

My 5 inc 3 @ MP were shocking last night. All part of taper madness . . . .!!?!

I read somewhere 2,500 entered split two thirds for the half and one third the full, so that's around 800 for the full.

I emailed them on Wednesday and they said the packs were being sent out Tuesday & Wednesday, so should be anyday now hopefully 


14/06/2013 at 12:28

Inspector - that sounds healthy. If 800 are entered, I`d guess 600 toe the line!

14/06/2013 at 18:41

Race pack arrived today.

15/06/2013 at 15:27

Mine came this morning.

15/06/2013 at 16:33

Mine didn`t!

Anything in there about the quarry section?

15/06/2013 at 17:32

It has a diagram of Quarry path, but only a basic one. Should I be worried about a Quarry?

15/06/2013 at 20:01

Alleged to be some killer switchbacks there.....?


15/06/2013 at 20:02

Mine's not arrived either

Last long run before Shrewsbury for me tomorrow..a marathon-yeh!
