Tealsocks - I'll be starting at 11 with the old blokes and the middle-aged ladies .
Getting quite excited now - just trying to work out what I can do or see on the Saturday and Sunday without tiring out my legs too much.
I was reassured by the runners passport where it said the finish line closes 6.5 hours after the last runner crosses the start line. Since I'm in the last pen of the last wave (11:25 start!) I'll just need to make sure that last runner isn't me. Gives my twingy right leg a bit of a buffer! Getting very excited though!
I went to NY with 2:09 in 2012 (flight/race entry option, did my own accommodation) and had a great experience with them. They were easily contactable before and after, and handled my cancellation race refund very quickly.
The only reason I went with STI for Boston next spring is that they were slightly cheaper...it will be interesting to compare!
