Hi - entered last week so looks like I just made it too if they have closed entries now so looking for some support having now actually looked at the course video and realised it includes proper shingle and stones! This will be my third marathon - did VLM and Chester this year and just couldn't bear to wait for a Spring one so thought - why not - it should be different and fun and at least flat.
Haven't booked a hotel yet so any suggestions welcome - otherwise am planning on getting back into my marathon training programme with the added twist of running on the beach/shore/seaweed line.. Doing an 18 mile run this weekend so will do at least some on the beach or grass for practice. Not done a long run in bad weather before either - just been lucky - so again feel I need a strategy for driving wind and rain. Bizarrely looking forward to the challenge though!
