Just signed up, living in Greenhithe this is pretty much my local race. Going to be using it as part of the preparation for my first marathon in April (Milan). Really looking forward to it, see you all there and hope everyone's training goes well!
Sorry to hijack this thread, couldn't see one for 2013. I've decided to enter this, got the flights booked and the hotel with bargains on both, just going through the entry page. Has anybody used enternow.it before for this? It just looks a bit...patchy! It's not a secure server and it's asking for my promotional code, which must be 16 digits. But it's not asking for any other info if it wants my credit card. Is this really right and where I enter my credit card details? I'm used to having to say expiry date, type of card etc.
First marathon and first race abroad so a bit nervous about these bits!
I managed a 1:38, which I was ecstatic with. I'm glad others enjoyed it even if it was a little hot, completely agree the villages made it wonderful but generally a cleverly designed course I thought and I'll definitely be back next year.
ASDA sell the lucozade gels for 79p as well, they keep them with the vitamins etc in my local one.
I haven't got as far as a full marathon in my training yet, building there slowly, but for what it's worth I've found I enjoy the strategy of taking a bottle of lucozade sport and 2 or 3 gels on my long runs, I start out sipping the lucozade sport, that gets me to about 10 miles, then I spread the gels over the final miles. I feel like early on when I'm not at all tired being able to sip a drink is nicer than the sudden shot of sickly gel but later on I'm a bit more tired and appreciate the shot of energy.
