I've done several multi lap marathons (even a 40 lap one but without hordes of other runners) but would always prefer a single lap route into the countryside.

I think I have made a mistake entering this race, usually I don't enter marathons on their first outing so the organisers can sort out the cock ups.  I feel very sorry for the faster runners who will catch the tail end of the half marathon runners and have a hell of a job to fight their way through the slower runners.

I've just emailed the race organisers to ask for a link to view the course as the info is not available unless I register with MapMyRun or change my privacy settings on FB.

Shrewsbury is a beautiful town and you will love the town but the roads are generally single lanes, some are 2 lanes and some aareas are cobbled. I work in the town so very knowledgable of route but I wouldn't worry to much as road conditions are good. The quarry park pathways are fairly narrow so this could be a problem if big volume of runners on them. I can see us using the grassed areas as overflow pathways.

Best get a wiggle on then and get away quick before the fast HM boys are on our tail. Adrenaline rush always good at start of marathon. It'll be fine, nice day out!
