Is the course flowing and fast
If you are aiming at sub 3hrs I would reckon you will be OK, shouldn't be too busy.
The course is flat, though by mile 24 last year I was getting very fed up with the underpasses.
I met a friend at mile 9 last year and run the last 17 miles. Despite the most awful weather, I think it was a pretty fast course. We were on about 4h30 pace and there was never much congestion. There were a few turns and bumps over small bridges, but nothing much. I was surprised most of it wasn't on the road though, it's more on footpaths and through parks.
Overall, I would say it was a pretty fast course though.
Hmm...depends how well prepared you are for the underpasses and turns around them. I found that quite sapping in the end.
