Bracknell T-shirts are always quality, infact the only ones I wear after the event. Maybe you could go technical with them for a change? I have to say I've used the water bottle most out of things you've given out in recent years, a replacement would be nice. I like the Buff idea though, they have a personalised one for the Snowdonia marathon & it's ace, I'd happily add a Bracknell one to my wardrobe!
I've always found Reading a couple of minutes quicker & PB'd on it twice, not sure ther is much in the courses but Reading just seems to suit me more... That said one year I did them both then PB'D at Bracknell (which is tougher) - guess its all down to how you feel on the day!
I missed this thread in the run up but thought I'd hop on to add my twopenneth about how awesome this race is. Where do you start with the superlatives??? I thought TT had it organised perfectly and the course is brilliant, tough but great to run. By the end I was hating the flat & craving more hills!
Cheers guys, TH it's horrible but I know it's the right call. I know what you mean LIrish & 9/10 times I'd be with you, I feel seriously crap though, not getting out of bed for 3 days is unheard of for me (well since my student days!). I'll be back, was hoping for cheeky daylight finish!
All looking & sounding good people! Not good news for me though unfortunately, training was done to a T but I've had a raging temp since Sun night and went to the docs for the first time in years today. Turns out I have a nasty chest infection, so walked away with a fistful of antibiotics and strict instructions not to run til it's completely gone - grrrr!!!! I'm being pragmatic and telling myself I have a bloody good base for the early races this year but in truth I'm not a happy bunny at all I hope it's a great day out for one and all, 2013 it will be for me, at least I have the Dartmoor Discovery to look forward to!
