I've just returned from Cape Town having ran the Two Oceans Marathon. What a fantastic race! Superb organisation and fantastic comeraderie and scenery.
Something that really impressed though, was the use of sachets of water at every drinks station. Does anyone know if they're used in any races in the UK, or are we yet to catch on to this excellent development? They're far easier to drink out of than plastic cups, and you don't break an ankle if you step on the discarded ones like you do with bottles! Is anyone organising an event where these are to be used?
