Anyone entered Stockholm Martathon 2008?
Anyone done it before?
If so, what did you think?
I did this last year and it was really hot - about 30c. Very well organised though - lots of drinks stations and showers. Beware they use Maxim at their drinks stations so it is probably worth training with that brand.
There are two laps - the second slightly longer than the first. Each lap has the same gradual hill (a bridge), which you need to be prepared for but it is not too steep.
Overall, it was a great experience - beautiful scenery, great crowds and a splendid finish in the 1928 Olympics stadium. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks Steve and Jeske
I had heard it can be a bit warm, but as long as there are plenty of drinks and showers I guess it should be ok
I'm looking forward to it already
Its on Saturday 31st May. The event website is here: Stockholm Marathon
Thanks Jakesy and Maire.
I think it should be fun (well, as fun as running 26.2 miles can be).
Hope the training goes well Brent. I'm well into marathon training but for London which I'm doing as well as Stockholm (didnt expect to get in through FLM ballot twice in 2 yrs).
Our Club group size has now grown to 9 runners and 5 supporters so should be a good weekend. Even ordered some event t-shirts to try and look the part.
thanks for the message...wow 2 marathons in a row ! I ran London 2 years ago, loved it was a great run but promised myself at mile 23 it was the last marathon, oh well so much for promises. Sounds like you have a good group together for Stockholm. We are also making the weekend out of it, arriving Thursday night and leaving Monday.
Forecast I've seen is 23C and cloudy. Seems to change daily though so hoping it will drop a bit (quite a bit really).
Looking forward to the weekend anyway. Whole of our Team Southampton group (10 runners and 4 supporters) are taking a 'lets enjoy the day' rather than run to set a pb attitude. Beware big groups in red t-shirts, its probably us...
Best of luck to all those running / going out there.
