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!
