Made the long trip up to Scotland from Devon for this one and did enjoy myself, thought the scenery at times was stunning and the support along the route brilliant. Managed 3hrs 21, not a pb but a few beers during the week/Saturday night and the bloody fire alarm in the hotel going off at 1.30am and had to stand outside for 20 minutes plus my mate getting up at 6am for the half certainly didn't help. Was a bit mental at the end with the torrential rain coming down at the finish then walking to the buses, i didn't even have a ticket but got on the bus with no problems. Thing that pissed me off the most was after cleaning up at the hotel we decided to go for a few beers and one pub refused to let us in because we wore jeans and trainers.. Think the doormen thought we were Hibs fans or something.
Brilliant time SB, i did the first 10k in 43mins, 10 miles in the same time as you (1hr 10) then the half in 1hr 33....rest i don't want to talk about... ha. 20 miles in 2hrs 30 and finished in 3hrs 26...split times very interesting there.
