Martin - I did ask the question on the facebook page about taking liquids in, especially if it's warm and it's supposed to take us 2 hours to access the park as we'll all still be drinking 2 hours before the race... have had no response yet...
Thought it was a bit irresponsible of the organisers to advise everyone to ensure they are hydrated adequately, then say we can't take water in and it'll only be available at the start, on the course and at the finish... especially given the number of people who seem to be running it who are not necessarily regular runners and may not be as aware of the importance of pre race hydration etc...
Also have found the route online, evethough it hasn't been published yet... looks a bit wiggly, but it does go all round the park and past all the major venues
Having completed the Brighton Half Marathon on Sunday can now concentrate on this one and am really looking forward to it - see you all there !!
Many thanks to everyone involved with yesterday's Brighton Half Marathon - the volunteers and supporters along the course were fantastic and thank you also to the organisers for checking up on the distance following everyone's comments.
Even thought this was my first half, I thought something was a bit odd between miles 4 and 5 as it seemed such a long way and my GPS said 10.6kms at the 10km mark... I know they're not always 100% accurate, but didn't think it could be that far out.
Enough said about the distance now, it was a great day out, I really enjoyed it and I got a sub 2.5 hours (adjusted time) for my first half marathon
