I note all the other main Autumn marathons have a forum so thought i'd open this up and see if anyone on here is running it?
It's come highly recommended to me and will be my 6th mara, targeting 2.59!
Yes I had a weekend in York a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. I'm travelling up Saturday morning so certainly won't be there for parkrun.
Whilst there might be the hill at 25.5, the overall elevation of the course is still pretty low.
Hi Donnie, thanks for the input. I think as vodkabob says above, on a normal day it wouldn't be much of a hill.
I am looking at getting the shuttle on the sunday morning from the train station. Any idea on how long that journey may take?
Also I am looking at going to David Lloyd afterwards at this address- St John's Playing Field, Hull Rd, York YO10 3LG.
Anyone able to say how far this is from finish line?
Thanks Wardi, about the length of time you have to walk after you cross the finish line in London before you are allowed to sit down then!!
I think in that case, I'll check out of my hotel when I leave for the race then base myself at DL for the afternoon and get a shower and some lunch. That'll save me the £20 late check out fee at the hotel and mean I can tackle the 3 hour journey home without stinking the train carriage out!!
yes I am slightly edgy as a shift of 12-24 hours in a weather pattern isn't wholly unlikely. The current forecast has flipped about quite a bit the last few days.
I recall the day after London was 13c and cloudy. I was furious!!!
