Nothing for me yet either - starting to think I may be included in the 50% that get rejected by e-mail. As far as I know, the e-mails haven't been sent out - I'm guessing they want the postal magazines to go out first?
6th year in a row for me and this was my first ever race back in 2010. Definitely a PB course but I'm pacing one of my club mates as I have Snowdon Marathon in 3 weeks time. The 'hill' at 12.1 miles isn't too bad but will cost you a few seconds. Similarly with the one at 3 miles.
23,000 runners quoted but need to remember that up to a third won't turn up due to injury / not trained for it / other, so I'd expect more like 16,000 actually running. Just looking at last years results and there were 15889 finishers (just over 16000 started) so should be around the same. Last year it was congested for first mile or two but fine after that. Getting in the right start position obviously helps minimise the impact so just hope people are sensible.
