I'm hoping to do the full as long as I get through the Potteries Marathon unscathed in July.
I'm looking to crack 3:15 here but looking at the course profile the 3 climbs look pretty steep but then the rest of the course looks reasonably flat.
Sorry Chris, I've just been offered a place from elsewhere
Chris, I'd like a place if you still have it available please.
I can only speak from personal experience on what I've done through over training.
I consider myself a reasonably experienced runner, 5 years, a couple of marathons, loads of half marathons and 10Ks.
I've been borderline sub 1:30 for a half for a long time so leading up to the Brum Half last October I really pushed the boat out which involved tons of speed work.
I got quicker but I also messed up my Achilles.
My advice therefore is don't overdo the speed work, reckon you'll be fine with the distance.
I emailed them yesterday afternoon and they emailed me about an hour ago so 24 hours.
My time had changed before I got the email though.
If they had an influx after I sent my email I guess it could take longer.
