Hi LWJ - hope you're well.
The year I took part, the half and full ran together, and then split at about 12.5 miles.
Enjoyed this run. Not easy due to a few inclines, but enjoyable at plenty of nice country lanes, and superb views.
Bit of a b*gg*r that last hill up to 13 miles, but I was determined not to walk it!
Very enjoyable and I liked my medal and t-shirt.
I've used theseshoes for quite a few years now - I've not noticed the slapping sound and I've covered all distances up to marathon.
I'll probably notice it next time I'm out running
I ran the half-marathon in 2011 and there were plenty of brits running. I know a few guys that are travelling out for this event. I'm sure there'll be someone to can tag along with. I ended up chatting to a few different runners during the race.
