Hi suedeheadscot, I will be driving down from central Birmingham for the full Stratford-upon-Avon marathon, and I would be happy to give you a lift. A recovery lunch sounds superb! Send me a private message with your number and we can arrange a meet-up point in Brum. Cheers!
We ran Glen Brittle on Wednesday morning - with clear blue skies and a powdering of snow underfoot. It was the most beautiful run of our lives. The 10 mile loop was nicely hilly, while not excessively so - with a great track throughout. Run this one before you die and you won't regret it.
