Interesting point about the litter. Don't know if anyone else saw her but a few miles outside Bath there was a young woman with a pram swearing quite loudly about the litter and how disgusting we all were. This was quite a way from a feeding station. Does anyone know if the entry fee covers the costs of cleaning up the whole route afterwards?
I ran the half marathon in Warrington at the weekend. I was aiming for 1:50 so tried to start maybe 20 yards behind the pacer. Bit of traffic early and lost him, but I was running 15s faster (per km) than that pace and didn't catch up until 11km (went on to do 1:44 though so not complaining!).
