I spotted too. I was the lady with the jelly babies and gnomes in my garden near the marina who made a slightly farmer type pirate cheer!

Well done! Hope you enjoyed my home town race.

*mental note to self: pirates = bad influence *

Cake - will prob enter, I've supported my towns race with jelly babies for 5 years. I've done 4 marathons, just not one within 100 miles of where I live! Plus I run the route of the marathon all the time (inc the smelly sewage works - that's just a yummy smell in the summer evenings ).

I got home from work on Monday for my other half to say
"Oh, I almost bumped into a pirate on the way to work this morning, he looked like a big budgie on a bike!"

Cake?  Was that you??  Or is there another Pirate in the city?

So many pirates spotted today at Beachy Head marathon. In order of appearance:

FlatFooted and another pirate
FB and I assume Petal marshalling. Possibly Holly too?
Another pirate on t'other side of river just before the 16mi feed station. And the pirate running in front of me with  Shin sticks or something on her top.

Petal or Holly on the dowhill just before the finish.

Was Nicko riding the MTB round the course?

It was nice to meet PIT and FF, and almost have a conversation with FB as I was running off.
