Planning ahead, I'm in already. Can't wait
Flynn, you out there? The confirmation email from "Mucky Races" has the date as 11th May but it's 13th, right?
Look forward to seeing you all there next year
Oh, last year's thread! I get it

They're actually quite tame, mild undulations at the worst. Get some nice hilly routes into your long Sunday runs & you'll be prepared for anything this race can throw at you
This will be my second marathon also, i note it is well attended by thanet road runners who rate the event very highly so I shall be there, does anyone know ..wheres the nearest accommodation?
Hi, If anyone's going from SE/Central London and would have lift-space in a car could you please get in touch? Trains seem tricky to get to the start in time! Thanks, looks good and I've signed up but a 60mile cycle isn't my ideal warm up...
I'm signed up for this. Will be my third marathon. All this year, too. I got the bug. Desperately want a sub-4 after running 4:02 and 4:04 in the first two. Hopefully I will be able to tag along with some people running a similar time, because I'm a poor student and can't afford a Garmin, so I have no idea what speed I'm at.
I do hope it's not too hot because I really feel the heat, especially that far in the sultry South. Didn't plan on running in any months without an R but I want that sub-4 too much and can't wait.
Still, looking forward to it very much!
Have entered this but looks like I will be unable to run due to a knee injury.Does anybody want my place? Paid £26 for it and will gladly take £20 for it! Best way to contact me is via text: 07886 888 624
I am really interested in leaving water bottles for the stations - can we say which ones we want them at?
Also for me and mum it is a 1.5 hr drive so we would probably aim to get there for 08:30 - 08:45 from past experience is this too late to get our water bottles in ? I would hate to rely on that and then have no room to put ours in
There is plentiful water and sponges around the course (including unofficial water stations run by friendly locals) so most people use the 'drop' for energy drinks. The way this worked last year was that you placed your drink (max 3), labelled with your number in the box for the appropriate water station. Once the boxes are full, the service is closed. I would have thought you would be OK at the time you are arriving, but it is always worth having a plan B, in case you get stuck in traffic etc etc.
I think Halstead must have a surge of entries after Brighton and London. Last year, I entered it after having a terrible run in Brighton, due to the unusually hot weather and my own unrealistic expectations on timing. I think they even increased the number of entries available as they had so many! It's very different to the atmosphere of a large marathon like London or Brighton, but very enjoyable and really well organised. See you there
