ok - what a service! I'm doing 'Birmingham Canal Canter' (marathon distance) on Saturday - too late for this week's list ... its a LDWA event, so slow running, low fee and cake

Thanks for the welcome, and birthday wishes! Really excited about running in a foreign place - I decided to call the fee a birthday present to myself!!

Alas - as a teacher I have no choice but to miss the party and rush back ... 

Rachelcgen - have you stayed there before? Might check it out ...?

I've just read that our EA subs allows us to run IAAF races without needing a medical letter. A guy up our way has just had this confirmed in an email by Florence Marathon. That'll save a bit of hassle / money ...

In support of Ivor, however - there was a junction when an inland road met a coast road at around 18 miles where we had a right turn, and I did feel that I was pretty fatigued by that point, and wasn't as focused as I would normally be. I didn't enjoy running out into that junction - fortunately the oncoming cars (in both directions) were courteous (as I'd found them to be all week on holiday there), but I felt it was a significant safety issue.

I also agree that predicting who would come first, second and third wasn't the best way to introduce your best runners - raise their profiles, yes, but don't anticipate the outcome of the race.

Not everyone has the experience to know that if a race says there'll be gels there might not be any ... I take my own gels now, but I didn't on my first marathon. In my opinion, it would have been a courtesy to have informed people at registration.

I've done 15 and to date nothing beats Mablethorpe for me  !! (no milk, mind!)

I read your review, and agree that there is some work still to do. I couldn't quite get my head around them funding a runner from Kenya to run and then paying him when he wins? That all seemed a bit contrived to me ...

I liked the milk at the end, mind

Hi everyone

Considering this race next year, but I'm at work the next day - how easy have people found it to get from the finish to Gare Du Nord to catch the Eurostar back home?

Did I read somewhere that someone had an 'recommended accommodation list'?

Some of my club mates might come as well ----, but some are waiting for a response from London first - will Paris be sold out by then?

What's the secret to being successful on this, then?

Did I miss the energy bars and gels? I just read on the website from Vazon Bay onwards ... I don't remember seeing any at all?!
