Indeed, this very thread itself is attached to the listed Stevenage Marathon event at http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/events/viewevent.asp?EN=83647, where it refers to a full 26.2-mile event in November.
I note from 2W's link that it is only run every 10 years though, so this will presumably be (November) marathon number 3, which might well explain the lack of awareness amongst some of the seasoned locals.
I've opted for the Holiday Inn Express. It's not much cheaper than the normal Holiday Inn but it looks convenient for station and start.
Well spotted 2W. I just hope they don't re-schedule it now as I've just booked my overnight accommodation.
Flat course but where did that wind come from yesterday?
