I got a newsletter from the organisers the other day which has encouraged me even more to run the course.
They are making improvements on this years course from the comments made by last years runners. Last year at the 17mile mark the road surface was really loose and very hard to run on, they have said they will improve this for 2009 which will be good. They are also going to improve the starting area to allow for more space for runners and spectators which again will be a good move.
How bad is this! Getting excited about a race which is ages away yet!
Well they had a shuttle bus in Dundee. The drivers were not bothered about tickets. In fact he was really surprised i had managed to hold onto mine for 13 miles. Hopefully Edinburgh would be like that also. You can still buy shuttle tickets though by going to transport - shuttle bus in the listings on the left. Good to see they have one to the finish as well so friends can watch at the line.
I didnt buy a shuttle ticket because I will be running the distance and Judith will just drive to the finish. She did that this year without to much of an issue, although the first guy had crossed the finish line before she managed to get parked!!
