I missed out on this event last year as I was in training for the London Marathon and it was a 20 miler training run week!!
Not run an actual event since then so this is my first organised even in nearly a year. Really looking forward to it. Ran 12 miles this weekend in 1:44:50 so hoping i can sneak in under 1:50 for the first time ever!
Good luck John! I have just applied too, with no problems. I did'nt get a ballot place this year but ran for charity instead. Lots of charity places available if you're willing to do the fundraising. I thought raising £1500 would be difficult but its amazing how many and how much people will donate. I'm over £2000 raised for this year so far!
