Mike see my post above. METRO goes to mainline station too. We paid less than that for 3 nights b and b. Only problem is getting out of South Shields post race
Good advice from cougie. Don't worry too much about hotels near start. Any hotel near a METRO stop will be fine. We usually stop out at Whitley Bay, cheap there for B and B
Last Sunday SJC.
Finishing on other side of the river was when Welcome Inn split / closed and Shaws Arms was HQ. New people at Welcome OK with road races.
Wish I had not signed up for Welcome Inn or I would have stayed in bed until the weather cleared around 12.00
Chernobly just wanted to try something new. Route was changed to avoid the mud. We went left after tram bridge and down past Continental and over Ribble at other Bridge inn and back on old course to the finish.
Ozman cut off times not tight. I ran 2.38 a year ago and there was still plenty out on the course after that. Check the results if you are concerned.
