My expo code isn't working. Does anyone know if the expo code entitles you to an early bird price? I didn't get the chance to sign up yesterday and I was told it was £45 at the stall.
I'll be a bit annoyed if I have missed out on that price despite pre-registering.
Ran this years race my first marathon 5hrs 29mins, got the bug and signed up for next years.
Brighton 2012 was my first marathon and despite being plagued with injury and having a lot to learn about training properly for a marathon I'm signed up for 2013. I've got 4 london rejections so might get a place this year but will defer if I do!!
The best three I have read are :
P & D Advanced Marathon Training
Hal Higdon - Marathon
Lore of Running by? This last one goes into the physiology as well training and plans.
Lore of Running is by Prof Tim Noakes. It´s really the reference bible to a lot of top athletes.
+ 1 for the Lore of Running: incredible detail on all sorts of information. Not just about marathon running, but leaning towards distance running generally.
On another topic, does anyone happen to know how many finished the marathon on Sunday?
Some familiar names on here!
I have registered for Brighton 2013 and also booked Travel Lodge (with the canellation option)! Not done Brighton before, about to do my 4th VLM...yikes!
have been around the shops this morning and while out spotted a 1 running shop and a heath shop that sold gels individually so went in and bought 3 or 4 different types and a couple of favours of each for the Wife and daughter to try as they have never used them before hopefully there find one that works for them
Charlotte good luck for Sunday
And to anyone else that is running my your leg be swift and your times be good but above all enjoy the day
must have another go at the ballot again this year when dose it open
Following booking my place for next year yesterday, I have also booked the Preston Park Travelodge. So thanks for the tip earlier in this thread on how to select the dates into next year on their website!
Hi there! I too have booked my place to run in 2013. Did 4 hours and 10 mins for the last one. So hopefully can sneak a sub 4 next time. Really impressed with most of the forum members times and how well they did on the day; especially Toby3. I stayed at the Holiday Inn along the seafront which to be honest wasn't great. Some of the rooms are dirty and the hotel needs updating urgently. Being along the front is great for most things except the start of the race.
Anyway, just thought I would say hi, and hopefully this forum can motivate us all to keep plodding the streets.
I am a new poster to this forum. Having gone and done something daft at the expo and pre-registered for 2013 to keep Snowmaiden company. The longest race I have ever run before this is the Bristol 10K, although I have run/walked it for the last four years.
We are currently still in Brighton - as my husband (Toby 3) ran Brighton Marathon last Sunday and we are enjoying a holiday by the sea - as the closest seaside to us is Weston super Mare where there is never much sea to see.
