What's the story wiith the starting pens? No idea what I put down as my estimate back last year, but I suspect slow.
I'm in Blue - Pen 7. Does it make much difference? Aiming for 4 hours.
Went to the Expo yesterday at 16:45. Very quiet, could have been in and out in a few mins. Had a bit of a walk around.
I can't remember what I put either. I do know you're not going to be able to move forward but can drop back pens if you feel you need to. Here how the pens are worked out (pinched from another website) You should be fine at the front of 7 if you run your own race Plenty of time and miles to find your pace. Good luck!
Pen 1 sub3
Pen 2 3 - 3:14:59
Pen 3 3:15 - 3:29:59
Pen 4 3:30 -3:44:59
Pen 5 3:45 – 3:59
Pen 6 4:00 – 4:14:59
Pen 7 4:15 – 4:29:59
Pen 8 4:30 - 4:59
Pen 9 5:00 and up.
Yeah, you should be fine in pen 7.
Pen 8 for me then ....
