The show will start at 7.05am and will also be aired on Channel 4 +1 (8.05am) – it will also be available on 4OD (Channel 4 ‘on demand’).
Congratulations Martin. I got my rejection yesterday - 5th year in a row. My alternatives now are either 1) to go for a charity place, which I am not keen on as the marathon organisers collect such a large slice of the funds raised, or 2) go through Sports Travel International, who provide the full package of race entry, travel & accommodation, but charge almost £1000 now for it.
Martin - you speechless? Never!
You're getting perfect weather for the ultra tomorrow. Best of luck, but I know you and Mark will be fine. I can just see you making up your Veda sandwiches in the morning. I wish I could join you for the 1st 13 miles, but not so sure about the rest of it ????.
Mags, you embarrass me. I saw 3000 other people out there on Sunday pushing themselves to their limits.
Congratulations on your pb, One2escape. Your reports are always very interesting. Marathons can be overrated and I've got just as much fun out of doing shorter races, especially the trail races or ones in places I've never been to before such as Rathlin Island or the Dark Hedges.
I got a massive pw on Sunday with a finish time of 2.26, but didn't mind at all. I hadn't been able to train for it and only took part to soak in the atmosphere. The last few miles were hard going, but it was well worth it. One of the things I love about running as a sport is that you don't ever 'lose', as long as you finish and did your best. Like when people shout out that you're 'doing well', even though you know you're not, but you still really appreciate the support. It was superbly organised, as ever, and the support along the way was fantastic. Best of all was seeing friends again, especially Mags for one of her legendary hugs!
