This has been a slight problem for me for the past year, Valencia marathon in November lost five or six minutes waiting for a loo.
Started running trails / off road this year and boy the problem has become ten fold worse. This morning was fairly typical, try as I might, no chance of going beforehand 6 to 6:30, two miles into the run and the bushes are thee only option. Five miles later and desperate to go again. Small upside is being offroad the bushes option is far easier than if I were pounding the roads!
The actual output seems really healthy, not diarrhoea like in any way, but the amount is frightening. Probably goes cap in hand with a massive increase in what I eat on a daily basis since going off road and upping the miles.
Seriously starting to feel guilty about the amount I am leaving around the locality!!
Was a great day, love this race, love the city, love running, love life
Still on the post race high....Was great to catch up with a few posters from the thread and hope to see you folks again sometime in the future. Sorely tempted by Paris...
Hope everyone has come out of the race feeling ok, apart from a little soreness feeling remarkably good. Was great fun at the airport this morning, you could spot those from the race with I would guess a 99% accuracy
For those considering this race for next year, I am probably biased and maybe not the most neutral person, but I would say "Get signed up in January it's only €40". The course is brilliant, more drinks than you could ever want, the start/ finish area is incredible, only slight negative...Not enough portaloos on the course! Never need one before but had to go with urgency and had an agonising wait queue for the only loo available at km20!
Good luck with all your winter training folks, and stay injury free.
Great to see another marathon virgin pop their cherry in Valencia, hope you enjoyed it?
Personally I think anyone who isn't a runner must be bonkers
