I'm running the Rotterdam Marathon in April and would greatly appriciate any tips or advice from anyone thats done it before. It's my 8th marathon so the race itself isn't really the issue. I'm talking expo, hotels, travel and general tips.
No one actually done the marathon then? I'm really not bothered about the land mines. Neather are the Falkland Islanders. They are clearly marked and nowhere near Stanley. I just want to know things like - Should I carry water, What shoes to wear, How hilly it is e.c.t...
I ran the race in 2010. If family members are coming to support you then I wouldn't recomend they sit in the stands. They can get a much better view trackside near the finish. Get there early as it will get really busy in the car parks. I only just made the race start and i got there with over an hour to spare.
The race is good. 10,000 runners when i did it and it's more hilly than you'd expect too.
I'm running the Falklands Islands marathon this year and i was wondering I anyone who's done it before had any tips or advice. It's my 3rd marathon so i'm familiar with the marathon experience. I know the Falklands Marathon presents it's own challenge with the probable high winds!
