Everyone who sent us an SAE should have their numbers now, the others will need to be collected; either from Shore Rd (the seafront) on the Saturday (between 4-7pm) or on race day from the registration desk near to the start.
All runners should have had an email with full instructions. If you haven't had one then please let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org as we do have a few bounces from hard to read email addresses!
I'd say it very much depends on how often the water stations are and how often you need to drink. Also the conditions will make a big difference. In October it could be quite a warm day where you would need to drink more often?
