Dear Marathon Runner (I think they mean me!!)

It’s all starting to get a bit real now, who would have think it, me, running a marathon! What a mental year this has been, I’m a changed man!!

Dear marathon Runner.

40 days till marathon day. Hope the training is going well.

We will have the full list of race info available for you around the 24th November.

As i mentioned in my previous mail with regards to Race numbers and Race timing chips. Remember race numbers will not be sent to you. Your options for number and chip collection are as follows!

1. Come along to Alexandra sports on the corner of Gladys Avenue and northern parade, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO2 9BL on Saturday 22nd from 8am till 5pm for a marathon expo, here you will be able to collect your race pack with race number and timing chip. Also we will have some light refreshments available and free mince pie. Also stock up on those last minute things you may need. This will be ideal for local runners and those who are traveling down and staying overnight on the Saturday. Thus giving you more time on the Sunday morning as you will be ready to rock up and run.

2. Or come and collect your race pack on Sunday morning (race day) from race registration inside the glass house at the rear of the pyramid centre overlooking the start/finish area. This will be available from 7.30am on the morning up till 9.20am. Please be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get ready to run.

And some info reference water stations.

These will be stocked with a selection of the following.

Shotz energy gels, jelly beans, jelly babies, bananas, buscuits, cakes, water, orange squash, brandy and wine and good old christmas cheer.

Please remember that the route is a coastal path and please do not litter as you run along, carry to the next bin, and we will have some at each water stop as well, your help in this matter is much appriecated and helps keep the country side clean.

Route inspections have been taking place over the last few days and all is looking good. a little slippery and muddy in places so hope for a cold snap soon to firm it up and dry it out abit.

Kind regards from Rob ( race organiser )
