My husband did it a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it - and got a decent time. He said the atmosphere when you reach the old town and the crowds are there to cheer you really lifts flagging spirits. One word of warning: even if it doesn't seem that hot (which it wasn't when he ran it), the sun is much stronger than in the UK and on a couple of the more exposed roads where there is little shade quite a few people, even very experienced and fit runners, were struggling. So: maybe wear a hat, take some water on board at the refreshment stops, and make sure the back of your neck is protected. When he did it a snood-type thing was included in the freebie pack - he discarded it thinking it wouldn't be needed, but it's a useful bit of kit - he regretted his decision!
lollipop and Bekki like this.

I just signed up tonight. Going to use it as part of my training run next weekend as I taper into the London Marathon. I really do need to make sure I don't start to race it - London is only 2 weeks after!

We only booked to come out to PP yesterday, and I didn't realise the Half Marathon was on next weekend until I read your post. So quite unexpected, but a very happy coincidence!

Cheers,
David

I couldn't get my lad interested but I'm blocked in so you'll get some British support as you come down Juan Guirard...
