Why aren't there parkruns in France, Germany, Spain, Italy etc?

Doctors note isn't required, probably because it's a run not a race.

The 1 runner in France isn't French, but he does live there - his wife is French.

Don't argue about your result if you run in Sicily, particularly if the RD is wearing shades, a black suit and has a violin case

Manchester marathon 2015 - short distance?

If you're looking for things to worry about, remember if you put the chip on your left foot you should cross the start line right foot first and the finish left foot first - it could make 0.2 of a second difference

I guess that one of the important things about the course length is that whether it's right or wrong it's the same for everyone!

The blue line isn't the fastest route in London - it's just a guide.

Hugh Jones said in his Marathon Talk interview the shortest route is closer to the edge than the blue line, the reason it isn't painted closer to the edge is because of the width of the vehicle that paints it, it goes as close as it can to the edge.

For the girls, if you aren't as high up in the results as you thought you should be, we've already spotted in the photos that 'Avril' and 'Lisa' who were in the top 4 W45-54 were men, so if you were near the top of your age cat it's probably worth checking.

Hope you're all recovering OK and looking forward to next year or depending on how you feel!

I was asleep at 11, woke up buzzing, did some stuff, back to sleep, just getting ready now to drive a truck into the park with mini mile gear

The only reasonable way from the pier to start is to walk, I can't imagine it taking 35 mins (well, not before you've run 26.2, it might afterwards!!), it's only a mile and a bit. My explanation about cabs is on this page 

Parking. The traffic around the expo was AWFUL on Friday afternoon due to shopping, expo, people going to the beach, school hols, sunshine and it's Brighton, (traffic's never good) 

There are multi storeys behind the expo, I was caught in the queue for them on Friday and took 20 mins to get 200m, the traffic lights were changing and I didn't move.

I think I'd either go

- west of the expo at whatever point there's a space and the queue gets unbearable, on street pay n display or Regency Square underground. Don't go there by coming down the A23 to the pier and turning right, get over that side when a bit inland, then head for the seafront

- or if you're coming from the east maybe try your luck parking east of the pier although that's a challenge at the best of times.

It'll probably be worse in the afternoon than the morning.

Coming in be sea would be the quickest way, I might hire a boat next year and do a park and ride the waves
