Mc Hilly - thank you, it was either this year or never, thankfully my friend who suggested it has also got a place. I'm just wondering, a decent marathon time for me would be around 4hrs 10min. I ran London 2013 in 4hr 21min, what should I add onto that to consider having a decent race? Or is ' not to stop and walk' an achievement ?
Windsor is definitely a difficult course & the heat made it more difficult. To be fair the guy on the loundspeaker did keep telling people to drink plenty of fluid & to respect the undulating nature of the course! But I've done a few races in similar conditions & the heat will always take it's toll.
I ran it for the the 1st time, I probably wont do it again, as i don't think its value for money(£10 for a t-shirt!) on top of entry fee, i was aware of the cup situation before the race so just took my own water belt.
