I will pack for both eventualities to be on the safe side, and the use of the showers after will be fab if we do get soaked. Don't fancy travelling all the way back to Gloucester after getting a soaking, even after changing into dry clothes. Might have to pack goggles too in case it rains like last year!
Haha Emmy...I did think that a great British bank holiday...better pack my rain jacket! A buddy and I will be taking this on together, we recently ran brighton and she twisted my arm...not that it took much!
We've booked our hotel for the night before so we are all set on that front just need to decide if we will drive down or get the train..we're thinking post event beer on the way home so train is winning currently! See you there guys
Have signed up to run this year. Am a litle apprehensive that will be a bit too warm but it sounds like a lovely route and I'm quite looking forward to it. And the training should be a good way to shake off the post Brighton marathon blues. Also hoping there will still be tshirts for sale at the event...am somewhat of an event tshirt hoarder
I also suffered a touch of post marathon blues after Brighton this year which made me an easy target for a friend to talk me into this,second full marathon of the year! Sounds like a lovely, rather picturesque low key marathon....right?? And the flapjacks at aid stations was a winner...considering taking a lil baggie to collect one at the last station for the finish.
Hi all, very late to the party but also running Brighton in a few days. My second marathon (1st VLM 2013) and looking for a better run at Brighton. No time in mind just a finish without a stop - VLM saw a 20 minute sit down at mile 21 with a collapsed runner which totally trashed my mojo, concentration shot and race went down the pan from there. Training also hampered by piriformis problems.
Hoping for a bright but cool morning, ran the Gloucester 20 last weekend and was a tad warm for my liking. Nerves starting to kick in now the countdown is on, probably somewhat undertrained but *touch wood* am not injured. Will take mildly undertrained under slightly injured anyday.
