Loved this event and will be back in 2014, with more members of the 2 clubs in Milton Keynes that I am a member of , as I will praise it to the max . came home in 111th position in a time of 1.46.12 , clocked it at 13.60 on my Garmin, Well done to all involved organisers , supporters , Drink stations , marshalls. thank you all.
ps loved the finish and and a lovely Cpl of beers in the Malt house.
Will say HI to all on this thread, been following it for weeks , but first time I have posted , coming up from Milton Keynes with another Marshall Milton Keynes runner , looking forward to this, my start time is 10.45 although I put down my half marathon time of 1.33, but just going to enjoy the day and a beer or two after. regards Geoff. ps have trail shoes but going for road shoes is this ok for course ?
only done 3 Marathons myself the first was last year at London, completed this in 3.26.07 hrs , this year i did London again in 3.31.12 hrs and 5 weeks later Edinburgh in 3.39,40 , was on for a sub 3.20 at Edinburgh at half way point , but blew up in the heat and had badly blistered left foot after mile 16.
Didnt run my first Marathon until the age of 46, so quite happy with times , but still want better.
