Is anyone travelling from Cheltenham for this because I'm looking for a lift. I was entered for the Cotswold Race the Train but that's been cancelled due to lack of entries. I can change my train tickets but not get a refund. I don't want to waste them so I thought this would be a good alternative.

Results a bit slow. Before the bus left for the journey back to Newcastle, we were told they'd be up Sunday evening. Just a bit curious about how many ran and my position.

Very impressed although I did see more signs for drinks than actual drink stations. Excellent work by the marshals especially at those tricky right turns. Slower time than I had hoped for but my right leg went wobbly at 19 miles but pleased to pick it up again. Seeing Bamburgh Castle really helped, what a magnificent setting to finish a race!

If the weather is as bad as the forecast I've just seen, I wonder if any races will go ahead this weekend. Gale force winds and torrential rain across the country!

Night time marathon - what to eat and when

I am intrigued by the Midnight Sun Marathon in Tromso. I'm just wondering about eating on the day when the race doesn't start until the evening. For short evening races, I get away with coffee and a sticky bun late in the afternoon but that won't get me through 26 miles. Any advice about eating strategies?

Came across this one too late. It would have been nice to run around some of my old training routes. Will have to add it to next years "to do" list.

Manchester will be much easier and the weather can't be that bad 2 years in a row...can it?

Finished the Bolton Hill Marathon on Sunday but now I'm off the hills and back on the roads to prepare for Manchester. It could be harder on the legs without the steep and rocky stretches that forced me to walk on Sunday but looking forward to it.

Brilliant rce in every way. Al praise to the marshalls and feeding station people who had to stand in that wind all day. At least the runners had a chance to warm up in places. The flapjacks and jelly babies were most appreciated and far tastier than some of the overpriced gels and energy bars. There was a lot of walking for me but my legs didn't feel too bad because there wasn't the unrelenting pounding of a road marathon. I might not do it again, simply because there are loads of other events to try but I will certainly recommend it to anyone else. The only black mark was for those who chose to drop litter aa round the course. Don't they realise that their actions could stop events like this being held again?

I like the look of this but I'm doing my first ultra a few weeks before. Depending on any positive feedback, I'll think about it for next year.
