Water , Chris I'd probably carry a small hand bottle , weather can be quite tricky , last year one side of the course would have melted you, the other side was freezing so it's hard to plan for , if I can be of any other help just ask , enjoy

Has anyone found a website with full race info on it? The page at

says "more information coming soon"? TIA

Jabel01 .... it's all a bit lacking of info unfortunately.  I'm doing their half marathon on Sunday week and there is very little CURRENT information about that - either on the HBA website (I appreciate there is a lot of general info which has been there for ages but they are still advertising early bird places!) or on their Facebook account - last year there seems to be a lot more updates in terms of entries, when the race packs are issued etc etc.

I found a bit of info on the marathon by trawling back through to last year's updates on Facebook ... not ideal!!

Jabelo and Alan , the website never changes and info seriously lacking until the last minute , saying that there is a telephone number somewhere on the site and I got an extremely informative chap who told me everything, they're a very laid back bunch
