Well Hofbrauhaus it is then 

I'm pleased it's nice and flat. I enjoyed Amsterdam for that very reason, nice to know that when the fatigue is kicking in there are no hills to face. That was a great PB!  but I'm envious of you hubby, has he broken 3:00 yet?

Thanks for the info. Martin your right the train network is excellent so wherever you stay its easy to get downtown and there is a station at the Olympic park.  The Hoffbrauhaus sounds just the place for after the marathon, I suspect a few other people might have the same idea so could be a bit busy!!

Hi Bionic Ironwolf I did see on the reviews that the stretch through English Gardens is quiet with litre support.  Interesting you ran a PB as I see its about 1600 ft above sea level. Is it quite flat then?

Ok sounds good. There are three of us running the marathon, my son and his friend and me. We did Amsterdam last October which was very well organised  and by coincidence also an Olympic Stadium finish! 

I think we will fly out on the Sat morning and return on the Mon afternoon so we can enjoy a few afters!!!

Definitely be a good weekend, lots to do and great beer!! Have you sorted any accommodation?  I was planning to stay near the olympic park so close to the start.

Already thinking where to have that slap up meal on Sunday night!

Great to know I'm not the only one!

Have you run it before? It looks like a nice route apart from the long stretch through the Englisher Garden. 

I'm just doing easy training at the moment but intend to put in a few more miles come July.

Has anyone who has run Munich got some advice as to where to stay and how easy it is to get to the start if you stay in the centre? Normally I try and find a hotel close to the start to make it easy to get to on the day.

Anyone else running Munich this year?

Agree, the large noisy crowds are great but sometimes a little distracting. I really enjoy a quiet marathon like Abingdon with little support but you get to chat with fellow runners a bit more!

I chose Amsterdam as a flat course  for my son but I imagine will be a liitle exposed with strong winds.
