Well, I guess it's time we started a thread.

If anyone is interested I have booked a Travelodge in Docklands for the night before and wouldn't mind sharing it with someone who has a car and could drive me to Hackney.
E mail me if interested.
I have entered this one too See you there.
Sir C de C,
What happened then?
If you are planning Marathons in consecutive weekends then you need to slow the pace a bit. When I was preparing for London to Brighton in October 2000 I first ran Two Bridges 35miles 26/8 in 6-43-27 then Moray Marathon 3/9 in 4-27-14. Then New Forest Marathon 10/9 in 4-47-21 and finally Battersea Park Marathon 17/9 in 4-17-51. London to Brighton was 1st of October and I just managed to complete it.
. As you can see, of the Marathons the last one was the quickest!
Prior to that I had been running between 4-15 to 4-25 about one a month.
The views of loads of electric pylons are great! Nicest bit is through the country park otherwise it is what you would normally expect on a tow path. Not many boats but there are a few walkers around.
Have done previous events and personally I enjoy it as it is flat and a fastish course. Will be well organised and marshalled.
Would reccomend it as something a bit different from your normal Marathons
I wonder whether there will be a bit more traffic on the river as it's a bit earlier this year.
As for Halstead and London... the sun came out. Need I say more?
Does it matter as long as you finish within the time limit? I will be recovering from a 6 day race (30th August) but still intend to give it a go!
By the way, if anyone wants to sponsor me for my 6 day race please e mail me. Charity is www.advanceinternational.org I hope to do 50k per day for 6 consecutive days.
Have decided to ditch Robin Hood in favour of Three2Go.
T&B, you should be fine with road shoes. They've been perfectly ok the last two years. It's mostly along towpaths so the surface is generally pretty good.
All right then I'm in again
I seem to be rather busy in September (strange how that happens)
How are you, haven't seen you for a while?
