Cracking Hol thanks Westy - did bugger all and it shows now but it wont be there for long! If you run Chester metric at that pace you will beat the current record by over 3 mins!! Got a feeling there will be faster people there this year. Its a plan B race for me- subject to Berlin Marathon a week before if I can get fit and a bib.
Fergster - 2.55-3.00 was OK for me but I was out of the GFA pen. Year before I was of normal start but in the first pen - again if you are in the right pen you will have plenty of space after a couple of hundred yards.
Garmin drops out in the isle of dogs too, I tend to use manual lap to counter this like you mentioned.
