Didn't realise this was such a small field (only 700) but luckily entered a few months ago so got in. First road marathon in 2 1/2 years and hoping for a decent time (for me) as training is going well. Any views on whether it is a PB course - looks fairly flat on the profile.
It was my 3rd marathon and first RH. I came home in 3:45:49 which really disappointed me for the first 24 hours as it is 97 seconds outside my best time but on reflection I am happy to have got round another course and there is always next time............
Despite the time I enjoyed the course (except the rowing lake) and thought the marshalls were excellent. It was a bit demoralising at half way as 80% of the people around veered off to finish and I just need to find a way not to die from 22-25 miles!
Thanks very much A Bolton! My marathon last year was Loch Ness which seems to be a bit worse than this one, especially the mile long hill from around 19 miles!! Looking forward to this now and I see the forecast is cloudy rising to 18C so not too hot either.
