Does anyone know if we can wear ipods / MP3? The race pack says "discouraged" and I cant get anyone to confirm it.
As far as I can see there are only two people doing this run, you and me, I will be wearing my music so the rule is, yes you can wear your music
Good for you, I can't really run beyond 10k with no music, it gets dull.
Is there anyone local running this that can advise if there are there any decent places to eat in the town on the Saturday?
Ipod, yes for sure, I'll be grooving while I'm moving, and as long as I can find a decent Italian the night before, I'm good to go.
Still can't find out if many are running this though
This was one of the toughest marathons I have ever run,many thanks to the marshalls and supporters along the way,without you I would never have finished.Nearly gave up half way ,all hot and bothered but my fellow runners were feeling it too, so we all carried on encouraging each other,thats what I like about these races,the fellowship is great.
The swimmers and bike racers were very brave and inspiring.
the plastic cups were only HALF full !!!, i took on water at every water station but i ended up in hospital with severe heat exhaustion due to dehydration, i have run 7 marathons before without any problems, best time 2hrs 48mins
Sorry to hear about your experience Paul. It was a really tough course in hot conditions that's for sure. Just wondered what time you finished in? I only ran the half - which commenced at 12 from Pembroke and every fuel station had both cups and bottles of water, jelly babies, gels etc. Couldn't fault the organisation and support around the course.
Hope you are fully recovered now.
This was my third marathon, definatly the hardest.
I would have liked a race report, how many ran? how many finished? who won?
The water stations could have just handed out bottles instead of half empty cups, didn't see any energy gels.
Disappointed that the crowd were handed the T-shirts I ran 26.2 miles for.
Still waiting for the photos to be uploaded, a week after the race.
Surprised to see a rotting corpse of a dog on the track at about 14 miles.
