Congratulations on completing in gnr ! 

thank you for your honesty about how tough it was having not fully prepared . its a refreshing change to hear people on this forum acknowledging that you cant just get up one morning after a couple of runs and sprint a half.

Good luck for future races !

Thanks LS21!

I will make sure I set my alarm early on the 22nd. I did a golden bond place once, the charity were great ( CLDF) but raising the money was very difficult. Decided I would just enter the ballot every year until I got in again.

I use to say in the marriot on george street near marbled arch nice to runners ( let me come back for a shower afterwards even though I had checked out ). I think you can use tescos clubcard points to pay .

think I may start a rejection mag collection. If the link is to be believed I now have five in a row.

MK Marathon 2014

I would question if the introduction of a half would create more interest bearing in mind the festival of running in march has a half and there is the NSPCC half in July . saying that if you are a HM runner in mk you wont have far to travel to race regularly
