Im counting down the days until this one, should be a good event. I'm one of the seemingly large number of questionably sane people doing this as #12 of 12 in 2012 and so it should be a really good atmosphere!
I might have come to the party a bit late but does anyone know of somewhere reasonably priced to stay the night before?
If you email the organisers, there is a reserve list running which you can be put on. I was hoping to run this as marathon #9 of 12 that I am doing for charity, but unfortunately left it too late to enter.
The organisers take a few days to come back to you, but appear very friendly and willing to help.
Have loved reading through the comments in this thread, looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. This is marathon #6 of 12 for me this year, looks like its going to be an awesome experience, must remember to bring my camera!
Am from dorset and have currently run 4 of 12, with the 5th next week in orpington. Ran the first 2 in cheltenham, the third in cambridge, and 4th was London. All fairly tame so far, the first two had ~1700ft elevation and were good events overall, cambridge was a nightmare and by far the worst experience of my running career as the weather conditions were abissmal, and London was just such an experience that I don't think i'll ever forget it
