Thanks 2wheels. I was hoping to fly from Bristol, which is either Tuesday or Saturday afternoon. But I think you are right about the nervous energy finding my race number on the Sunday! In which case I might have to accept that it's London flights.
Hi, thinking about doing this in Jan but flights from Bristol get in too late on the Saturday for picking up the bib. Has anyone done this who knows if it's possible to collect the bib on the Sunday morning? Or do I need to travel from London earlier in the day? Thanks for any info anyone has.
fair comment Cake, those kind of conditions can cause chaos even with the best laid preparations. although I bet if that kind of weather happens again the Manchester organisers will be ready and waiting for it.
Hi, I was thinking the same - the reviews of 2013 are pretty positive, which means 2014 is likely to be quicker to fill up, while the reviews of 2012 were, er, slightly less positive. On the other hand, RW says 10,000 places available, with 8,000 last year, and only 5,000 finished last year. I reckon you'd be unlucky to miss out if you wait until the new year. No transfer of numbers mean folk are likely to want to be reasonably certain of getting to the start line before signing up. that's my plan anyway!
