Bigeater I got about the same on my Garmin but as the booklet said it is officially measured so it'll be fine. Not sure what the margin of error is on a garmin.

Sorry cross post! Animal I only really know the trails for the top part near Rawtenstall. I imagine most of it is quite flat as it follows the train line or the river. I am trying to look at the map to get a better idea but the one on the website looks awful. The only major hilly bits I can think of would be the tunnels. Not sure what they are going to do there. Now it is lighter in the evenings I might do a run along the course and see....

I don't think the qualifying times are as harsh as you think Animal. I also think they lower it for people between 35-39 too....

I am very tempted by London next year too. They moved the GFA time back from 3:00 to 3:05 for senior men last year so I am hoping they keep it there. If they move it back to 3:00 I'll hate those 26 seconds even more!!!

Recovery going well managed a nice 3 miler this evening and now looking for my next challenge. Have finally signed up for Race the Train and also have an open water swim lined up against some of my colleagues from work - am a little competitive so I had better win! Though I know one of them has resorted to swimming lessons to improve his technique!

There is a link on the website for times and positions and stuff, Mr P. Good luck for London next week. I expect to see pictures of everyone meeting up at the park bench!

These are my results from the net Gun Time: 03:00:49 Net Time: 03:00:25. Was just the last mile - dragged myself along at 7:50 pace! Worth bearing in mind for next time! How did you get on Mr P?

Wow! Well done Malcs amazing time! You aiming for the sub-3 training thread next year? Amazing how much you've progressed! You're catching me up so best get my running shoes on! Managed 3:00:32 at Manchester today so a little gutted but still a PB. Also gives me something to aim for should I sign up for another marathon....

I am sure Ginger Magic that once you burst through that 3:30 barrier you'll see times tumble! Just look at Malcs and Superman's crazy pb's and think where they were last year! Well done on your PB

Wow! Great to see so many good times and PBs! Managed 3:00:49 which is a pb but am a little gutted! Just lost the pace in the last two miles. So I feel kind of mixed at the moment. I will break 3 hours at some point... Eyeing up Chester

Was a great day though and helps that it is so easy to get to. Felt really relaxed in the race village. I would just like to say thanks to everyone for making the boards so entertaining and informative. See you all next year?

Forgot to say congratulations to you Gary when I saw you. Hope the calf is ok for London next week. I cannot imagine doing another marathon right now!

Glad to see so many of you have running plans post marathon. Thanks for alerting me to race the train Animal. I live in Ramsbottom and didn't know about it! Looks like something different! Also know some of the paths, not sure what happens about the tunnels. Hope none of the first timers do what I did after my first marathon and that was to have no plans so I just gave up for running for about 2 years!

Congrats to WJH and AlanB. Are you looking into those running buggies or backpacks, they can only enhance the training?

Was planning on doing my last run today however just read on the Asics Paris thread that they went for a slow 2 mile run. I was planning on just laying perfectly still and eating carbs. Is that wrong? What does everyone else do the day before?
