Hi all,well done to everyone. Hope you got what you wanted from the day. I had a good run and felt the stongest I have ever felt in the last 10k which was pleasing. 2:52:07 for me,pb by a massive 48 seconds.
Course was a good one and volunteers and spectators were super. I enjoyed the bit at 19-21miles with few spectators as London can get a bit noisey for me at times.
Sorry to hear about the baggage situation. Felt there may be some issues when I collected mine. Not much signage around race village about bag drop,toilets or where the start was and I didn't hear many announcements over a tannoy.
My garmin came out at 0.1 miles over but these things have a tendency to be slightly out. Although thought I read in a couple of places the start was meant to be 200m beyond the bridge which it wasn't?
Nice medal and t-shirt. Goody bag below average,uncooked pasta meal and beef jerky. Thought the beef jerky must have been a northern thing,so being a soft southerner sent mine home with Dad for the dogs.
Thanks to the people of Manchester but probably won't be back or recommend until someone else organises.
Hi, does anyone know what time the race will start in 2016? Also trying to sort out logistics for after the race. Believe it finishes in South Shields,so what is the best way to get back into Newcastle to catch a train back down south? Thanks.
Fair play to you Sally,hope I'm still running 20 miles when I'm over 60. Not sure I will be the way my body feels today. Plan of an 18 and 20 sounds about right to me,then a three week taper.
Hope the shins improve orapidrun. I also run Banbury 15 at mp plus 5 seconds overall,which I was happy with given the hilly nature of course and felt comfortable. But since race I have been shattered and every muscle/ bone in body aches. Hope I haven't given it to much to early.
Missed today's scheduled run,only 2nd run missed in 16 weeks so should be okay.
Yep things just got real,my number has also arrived. Also cut my toe-nails in preparation for the race if anyone is interested?
