I used a pace band for my first two marathons, works well. Admittedly now the Garmin keeps me honest in the mid- and latter stages when otherwise I can drift off the edge

in for the half. Recently broke 1.30 for first time at Malvern, which wasn't hilly but was undulating. If injury avoided, going to try and have another go at a time beginning in 1.2...

Did it! That potholed track through a field (into a gale) from 10.5 to 11.5 has no place in a decent race, but otherwise it seemed a decent course, not that I had time to stop and look. Plenty of stewards, but needed it, as quite a bit of traffic on the course. Had to go out quick having looked at the course profile, and just about got enough in the tank to come home sub-1.30. Chuffed.

yep, doing this tomorrow. I'm aiming for a PB and to break 1.30, but not sure a course that's uphill second half, and a windy day, will make this possible. Going to have to go out quick as it's downhill first half, and put a few seconds in the bank for the second half. We'll see.

Spot on nottsgriff. Re: t-shirts, though I never even saw them before the race, or after. Wasn't looking or fussed to be fair. I came in through Stratford Rd entrance on foot up through where the finish was, to the start. Apparently there was a tent, must have missed it.

Route was decent I thought, not too tough but undulating. I would just say re: water. A 3rd water station would be better off at 10-11 miles after that tough section, rather than 9. As it was cold and wet, probably didn't matter, but in warm weather, the last 4 miles would have been hard on first-timers. The water given out was a waste also. Most I saw had two or three sips and threw away the half-litre bottle. Small cups are sufficient if you have 3 water stops in a half. No-one wants to carry a bottle of that weight for half a mile. That's 9,000 or so bottles, a waste of money imo.
