Hi Rick

Bike course is probably best described as undulating with one 'major' climb, Oxton bank at about 20 miles. However, even for a crap climber like me, it's not that bad.  Parts of the course are fairly exposed which can be a challenge if it's windy.

Feed stations/toilets are at 21 and 38 miles

Full race info can be found here

Tracking runners during marathons

Posted: 22/04/2015 at 20:01

I'm fairly certain that at London you can track people via their timing chips although these only update when the runner crosses the timing mats which I think are every 5 or 10k.

A system using mobile phones would possibly work at smaller events but at major event is likely to run into network overload and blocked signal problems.

Sorry Trogs, my comment was aimed at the logistics of the run in bike home daily; not casting aspersions on your awsomeness... day 2 the bike is not there to ride home on.

Worry not Major, I fully understood your comment
