Hi list fairy, could you please put me down for Brass Monkey (HM) on 15/1/17. Had to get up at 5 am this morning to enter - I was 851 in the queue when it opened at 6am and all 1750 places sold within 35 minutes of opening. More nerve racking than the actual race .... one of my favourites too in York, flat, PB there is 92:43 and usually -2degrees and doubtful (they hire their own gritters) sometimes. Great shirts and can hang indoors inside the racecourse pavilion with toilets 15 mins before start.
So on being up early today managed an all time PB at parkrun!
Christopher, half times should get you well under sub 3:45 on a flat Amsterdam on a good day. York's a good marathon- did 2014/2015 and stayed over both times ... although not a long commute from Leeds
