LECIESTER Marathon Oct 2014-needing reassurance!!

Posted: Yesterday at 14:40

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

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?

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?

Hi everyone,

I am booked in for this years Leicester Marathon.  First time Marathon for me.  Thank you booktrunk for the info on the race - very useful.

I would guess that with just 550 runners the group must be very spread out, perhaps a bit lonely?

I listen to comedy podcasts to keep me entertained and distracted from the pain   I prefer it to music and it is safer as I can still hear just fine.  Would be terrible to be disqualified though.  Shame.

Looking forward to it.


BHF Warwick Castle Half Marathon

I understand the 2014 race won't be from the castle but the racecourse. I think that is going to detract significantly from the experience. The castle is a special location. The route is nice and scenic but then so is the Coventry Half which is substantially better organised and on the same day.

On balance I suppose Warwick edges it for me as the town is a nicer location for a post race beer or two.

Interested in others opinion.

Hats on or off

A thin running hat will be cheap, cover the ears and can be stuffed in your pocket when you get warm. That's what I did with my karrimor hat half way thru Sunday's Warwick Half which started in zero degrees.

Alternatively get a cheap beanie and throw it in the bin half way around
