Snaffle, that's the Dopey not the Goofy...we did the Goofy challenge in 2012, saving like mad to go back & do the Dopey in 2018..we really do plan that far ahead That was Mr CS 1st marathon..the day after a Half Marathon...loved every second of it. Remember to get loads of photos with the characters and I strongly recommend the race retreat, it's a bit pricey but totally worth it.
Fueling for me is every 4 miles alternate jelly beans & high 5 gels. I only drink water on the course as I can't stomach the sports drinks.
Last year my Garmin measured short...in Niagara it measured long...I think I prefer Manchester miles to Canadian
So hands up who is going to the Bishops afterwards for a pint...and those with local knowledge, how do I get there from the finish area?
