Ran this year while being filmed for a documentary about marathon training. Film crew were asked to do a promotional film for the race at the same time, and the result is the promo video on the race website.
JUST missed out on a sub 2 hour race, so hoping to bust that once I get off the cigs AGAIN,and stop having work meetings in Starbucks!

Looks like I might be doing this again, as it'll probably be part of my training for FLM. At least I'll be expecting the hills this time. Flat course? Hmmmm...
Don't worry, I'm exaggerating! (a bit)
There's a slow climb at about 7 miles, where the course goes up the road above the start finish line. Then it comes sharply back down, then a sharp uphill through the cycle path tunnel at around 10 miles, up onto the cliffs. Nothing too nasty as long as you've not only trained on the flat!
The path back down into the marina is very steep, but then it's flat from there to the finish.
Looks the same apart from one listed with "The" at the front!
