Just an update on the above - I got hold of the organisers via twitter.  The gels in use are High 5

Getting close now! Launched my just giving page Friday and already hit my (modest) target for Leicester neonatal unit so might be able to push for a bit more for them.

Any tips on parking? I've never been to the area where the start is so don't know the best places to park.
I will likely turn up early because of nerves and worrying about traffic/parking etc. maybe arrive about 7:30 and go find a clean toilet to destroy

On another note, have emailed organisers 3 times now asking what brand gels are on offer and no response. Anyone here know?

Thanks.

I recommend NOT trying those Clif bars the Americans rave about.  Robbed my mouth of all remaining moisture and had me gagging.  

Jelly babies are great and I have been experimenting with Nutri-Grain bars.  Pretty good.

Hi Tamsin, another first timer here.  How is your training going?

I did my first 20 mile run on Sunday and have been sleeping like a log every night since

Ha!  

That's a good tip on getting someone to meet you.

Thank you. That's very helpful.
Shame about the plastic cups. I would be happy to pay more for the entrance fee to cover the cost of bottles. Oh well. No big deal.

I emailed the organisers last week enquiring as to what drink they provide for the marathon course, but I am yet to receive a response.  

Do any past runners recall what was on offer?  

Thanks

Not Leicester based but nearby in Warwick. Will try to raise some money for Leicester Royal Infirmary who took great care on my daughter who was born 11 weeks early at just 1.01kgs and needed lots of intensive care.

What plan are you following?
