Is anyone travelling from Cheltenham for this because I'm looking for a lift. I was entered for the Cotswold Race the Train but that's been cancelled due to lack of entries. I can change my train tickets but not get a refund. I don't want to waste them so I thought this would be a good alternative.
Very impressed although I did see more signs for drinks than actual drink stations. Excellent work by the marshals especially at those tricky right turns. Slower time than I had hoped for but my right leg went wobbly at 19 miles but pleased to pick it up again. Seeing Bamburgh Castle really helped, what a magnificent setting to finish a race!
I am intrigued by the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso. I'm just wondering about eating on the day when the race doesn't start until the evening. For short evening races, I get away with coffee and a sticky bun late in the afternoon but that won't get me through 26 miles. Any advice about eating strategies?
