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?
how is the training going everybody?!
Race numbers are being sent out over the next couple of days.
I'm really looking forward to this one. I hope that everyone's training is going well!
Finished long runs today, feeling good and ready to go. So hopefully no colds or other injuries in the next 3 weeks. Just read about a guy who had a melt down at Brighton marathon trying for 345 so I'm rethinking my plan. Maybe go a little slower to give me the best chance of going under 4 hours.
Hi all training going well even thoguh a niggle in my knee this morning, 18 miler tomorrow then step it down abit until the marathon, last year was so wet that you could not really enjoy the course, looks like it wont be so wet this year, take care
Got my number yesterday Green 1004
Got mine too green 1027 with my name on.
Got my number now too, green 1280.
Does anyone know the parking situation? Can't find any info in the race pack beyond the VIP parking, or are they expecting everyone to stump up for that. Might do that regardless as it's only £6, but they did state the spaces were limited and I've left it rather late...
signed up today but i've been contacted by them to assure my race pack will be sent out this week.
sign up to gun start was almost exactly 2 weeks....eeek, (ive been training for a full for a year, dont worry, im not DF3 :P)
Good luck! I like the idea of signing up so close to a race ( as you have trained for it ) Makes tapering more exciting and less soul destroying.
went out and did 14.5 miles at race pace today, i'll do an 8 and a 6 on wed/friday, a 10 on monday, and a 4 next wed... then time off till race day.
Hi I anyone planning on traveling to the Milton Keynes Marathon by public transport as I was may wish to know about the following information I recieved from the race organisers via email today. I am palnning on travelling from London by train and wanted to know about the local bus service and this was there reply. " The buses don't start early enough on a bank holiday and we've informed the local taxi companies top put on extra taxis at the station. Hopefully you'll be able to split the charge between other runners."
Hello all! I am so excited about this! Fingers crossed, I feel very very ready. last month I run paddock wood half comfortably in 1.53 and a couple of weeks ago I have run about 40 hilly km in a little over 4 hours... the temptation of trying to go sub-4 is very very very strong but I am going to resist it as it is my first marathon and do not want to set off too fast and then die a thousand deaths at km 32!
I also got my race number, green, I think I am no, 1962 and with my name on it.
Is anybody meeting up the day before?
mine arrived, im 2787 green (no name, assume because i signed up late)
My number is 998. Very excited. first Marathon.
One week today we will be all doing our best, cant wait hope the weather stays ok
Just want to say hope every one has an amazing time next Monday, my back is improving slowly, I can walk briskly for 5K and I managed to jog 1K last week. But I'm obviously in no state to take part.
I will be thinking about it all day and hoping next year I will be fully recovered and able to take part! x
Sorry to hear that Joanne.
I just went out for a nice comfortable 10 miles to start my week off, nice steady 8:20 pace. felt great the whole way.
Just a 10k on wednesday now and i'll rest up till race day. (im on my feet all weekend at work so i'll be mobile enough)
Hi folks, entered this last night..left it until I'd done VLM to see if I was up to it..remains to be seen if I am. Does anyone know about race pack at this stage, would prefer to have it before the day but then that may be a close call. So, impulse entry-I hope it's a good one. On the parking front, VIP parking spaces sold out, anyone know of a good little spot to park my weary bones?
