I've been known to resort to singing old hymns!

Thanks guys, I knew my Pommy friends would have all the answers! Looks like a weekend in Manchester coming up. 

Next question......  Does anybody know whether Manchester is likely to sell out or whether I'm safe to do a ( very) late entry? Just not sure of our travel plans yet.

Great running everyone! Sounds like fun all round. 

There is a chance I may be in England for the last two weeks of April and first two weeks of May next year, or thereabouts. Please can anyone recommend a nice flat marathon on at that time? Staying in Essex but very mobile.

Would possibly be Manchester or Milton Keynes.  Anybody done those? Your thoughts?

Hi Meadower, I've been popping in and out of the thread for a couple of years now. Never done Paris, it's a long trip from here and I got a spot for London this year so that was my travel budget done. However, I get the best advice here and the friendliest responses so I keep popping in! 

Any top tips for running your first 50km much appreciated!

Hi Heroine, I'm running in Australia ( home for me!) and race is mid summer. Approx 38-40 deg C during the day!

Hello all, lovely to read so many posts when I've been away for a while. 

Many congrats to Emmy, here begins a marathon of an entirely different sort. My daughter just turned 21 and there I was, up at 3 am, just like when she was a tiny baby. Only this time I was parked outside the nightclub on taxi duty!!

ive just entered my first ultra. 50km. I have 12 weeks to go. Please does anyone have any words of wisdom? It's only another 8km, right? I have a horrible feeling that my naivety may be my downfall...

Any advice would be much appreciated. Weather will be very hot, race starts at 3 am because of this. Thanks!!
