Hi Emmy! I am staying in MK the night before. I think we are staying at the Holiday inn (or other similar not-great hotel) near the stadium.

I did the MK half yesterday - very happy with my 2 hr 9min finish .

I live in MK luckily so accomodation for the Marathon is not a problem.

Hi Everyone,

Just 2 more long runs scheduled. I managed to catch up after a week out with a bug and bad knee. So please they came in the same week, I don't think I would have had the sense to rest my knee for a week if I wasn't ill.

No injuries/niggles hopefully stay that way. Were staying in a travel lodge for Sunday night. I thought Milton Keynes was closer when I signed up, plus public transport is worse then terrible to get there.

How's everyone else doing?

Did 17.5 Sunday - very tired and a few niggly aches but not bad - 20 miles to come (not really looking forward to that) then tapering.

I hope everyones trainings going OK - such a nice change to run in the sunshine.

Hi all,

Just as a note - Travelodge have a bargain at the moment of 30quid rooms for Milton Keynes Central.

Are you following a specific marathon schedule v4d? I'm just trying to run as many miles as I feel comfortable with and a long run once a week. I plan 2 20 mile runs next 2 weeks then a 3 week taper. This is my first marathon but I did a half in November finishing in 1.53. I feel a lot stronger now so hopefully finish in about 3.45-4 hours.

keep up the training runners

Hi does anyone have a good map of the course, the one on the website does not list the roads clearly, I want to transfer the route onto a road map of Milton keynes so the family can see where best to support me, thanks

Hi all,

I'm running this and am aiming for a sub 3:30 time, just ran a half marathon last weekend and used it to check my progress. The race went really well but I picked up (what I hope is) a small injury.

Im going to have to take a rest week and see how it goes but in the mean time I want to see a physio and get it checked out to make sure I dont make it any worse. Can anybody recommend a good physio around Bedford or MK?

Hope everyone roses training has been going well

Evening all. 4 weeks to go, I hope everyone's training is going well. One more hard week to go before the taper!


I'm hoping for a 3h05 finish all being well. Nursing an Iliotibial band niggle at the moment though, so stretching and foam roller torture for the forseeable future.


C&I - the best map I can find is here:

Hi All! Fingers crossed all is still well for me, just done a half yesterday in 1.53 so I should be able to finish my first attempt at full distance within the 4.30 hours! I am trying to take it easy this week and then have a good crack at another four hours run on Sunday and then I too shall taper!

Good luck to us all!!

Electric sheep thanks for that.

Training going well, I only go for a two week taper so two more long runs then taper down, I only use a two week taper as this is part of my training for an ultra in August, and I get bored with a three week taper, take care evryone

Don't know if you still need a physio, but can recommend Martin at Body Limits in Newport Pagnell

12/04/2013 at 17:21

Has anyone else got their race numbers yet? I haven't.

Not long to go, just one more long run for me. Feeling good and getting excited. Hope everyone is well.

13/04/2013 at 00:08

Nope - no sign of race number yet.


One more 20-miler on Sunday then the taper begins. Saying that, I have a 17-miler scheduled the following Sunday, so two more long runs if you count that.

Hello everyone, 


Looking forward to MK as my second marathon after having done Brighton last year.


I don't have my race number yet either. Any idea when they're sending them out?

16/04/2013 at 14:02

how is the training going everybody?!



16/04/2013 at 15:57

Race numbers are being sent out over the next couple of days.

16/04/2013 at 16:02

I'm really looking forward to this one. I hope that everyone's training is going well!
