How was it - I found it tough - very pleased with 3:21:55 ish final time awaited.

windy and hilly - very well organized

I managed 4:36:42, way exceeding my expectations. I found it tough, but I was expecting it to be bad! Wind was only really an issue for the last few kms, and I was just grateful for the cloud more than anything.

Organisation was very good, besides the km markers which could have been a lot more obvious!

Hello again and well done both of you! To think you were worried about the 6 hour limit russellelly!! And 3:21:55 is fantastic other Russell!

I am really chuffed with 4:01:36 which exceeded my expectations too. Actually ended up doing a very slight negative split because I was quite conservative in the 1st half and was feeling pretty good so kept pushing in the 2nd half. Of course the last 10k felt loooong! Of course now I have to do another one and go at least 97 seconds faster to get under 4 hours!

Also felt it was well organised but agree about the lack of obvious markers - I was glad for my garmin to keep track of where I was. But really enjoyed it and feeling sore but very satisfied to have conquered my 1st marathon!

Russellelly, is that offer still open for 2014?

Hi Terry,

I'm not in Poland any more, so unfortunately not. When I moved money from my Polish bank to my UK bank account I used TransferWise, whose fees are tiny compared to doing it directly through your own bank. Would definitely recommend.

Good luck for the marathon!
