Have chosen this as my return to marathon distance running in 2017.
I've had 4 years off the distance given pretty major spinal surgery in 2014 but feel the time is now right to regain my previous fitness! This is going to be marathon number 40 for me and I can see no better way of celebrating the milestone, this event looks epic!!
Anybody else booked in for 2017 or maybe able to offer some advice on footwear and other kit? The YouTube videos of the run in 2016 show a real variety of stuff on show, and also pretty dismal foggy weather for july?!
Really excited to be back, would be great to hear from others ready to take on the challenge in 2017 too!
