i have a few in fact - i have another room booked at Hotel Rush that i do not need now as the wife and kids aren't coming. I also have a room at the travelodge and a room at Monaco Chicago. I am sure i can change the names on the bookings over.
All are 9th to the 13th (should be able to alter these) and range from $758 to $916 dollars - and all are family rooms.
I have flights from Manchester on Friday 9th - returning sunday night on the 11th - £510 - thought coming back the night of the race will make it easier to sleep on a night flight.
Hotel Rush - $400 for the two nights
Trains and buses around the town and from the airport seem really cheap.
Just completed my Esta form so i can get in the country
Well done on getting in - I booked flights for ??500 and I have a couple of hotels booked being honest - did them a while ago - I have a room at the travelodge on grant park that may be available that was cheap that I will not use now - going with hotel rush now. Let me check my Booking account. I expect a few will be available for those who where unsuccessful cancelling rooms
I have the same idea about the majors - loved the wall at VLM expo with a list of every person who has run a major marathon and saw how few have done all 6 - no doubt because Tokyo is so new to the list - i have done 3 so far (lucky to have done Boston so got the hard one out of the way) - so over the next few years would like to tick off the rest. Stated watching videos of the route on Youtube and it looks plum flat, wide and smooth - could be a fast race if training goes ok.
