Anyone got their numbers yet?

Cinder - we have only had one post, well nearly two but stupid postman put ours in next door letter box. We cannot get our post back as the house is empty and up for rent and estate agent don't have the keys and the landlord is not answering his phone. Made official complaint to post office this morning. War with post office sorting office manager starts on Monday. I am not a happy bunny.

Hi everyone, no number as yet, but looking forward to what promices to be an enjoyable canter by the sea

Nope, mine's not here yet either.

Let's hope for calm weather! Last year was great - cold and sunny!

I remember the cold and sunny Draycote Marathon last year. It was -6c in Brimingham and our car just made it to Draycote and then died and we ended up spending another 3 nights in our caravan.

Picked my number up last Sunday, just as a blizzard started.

 Made me wonder what the weather will be like on race day itself

Just signed up, left it late so paid the extra for the charity place but want the race-day experience for Paris in a few weeks and fits nicely into my training schedule- also doing the Brentwood 1/2 in March. I'll be driving down from London in the morning - anyone got any tips for parking not too far from the start?

Elliot - They recomend the multi storey car park in the marina.

If anyone has a place they can't use, would they contact me please. As it's my local event, I have done it several times previously, but never known it fill up so quickly!

The main shopping car parks are even closer - the Churchill car parks are up behind the Grand Hotel, and only a 5 minute walk from the start.

I will be walking to the start for our campsite, that will be my warm up.

Number arrived today.......2667.........looking forward to what will be my second half marathon

Got my number yesterday - 5445.  It's my first go at this one, I'm hoping the hills aren't too tough.  Will be on the 7:11 out of London Bridge.

3215 for me.

The hills aren't too bad, but they're all in the second half! Looks like if there is any wind, it'll be blowing us up the hills, so that's OK...

My number is 4164

Trafalgar St doesn't cound as hill?

 Oh Lordy, I'm in for a shock then.

am trying not to think about the hills (only signed up on the basis that a sefront half could not possibly have hills.....)

am number 1300 and will also be on the crack of dawn train out of london bridge (although how i'm getting to london bridge is another matter.....)

I've made that assumption before that sea side equals no hills... anyone else ever tried running the coastal path around the isle of wight? I think I registered the equivalent of running up Ben Nevis on my 12 miler!!!

After that this one can't be that bad

Weather is not looking good at the moment for this race...
